Building a "Sleeper" can be fun, but you might want to reconsider the dual carb's. They look neat but can be a real bear to set up and maintain. They kill any hope of milage and on a street car you might want to consider that. Instead of "Nitro" don't you mean "Nitrous".
Nitro is short for nitromethane, a very slow burning fuel, but give's you a lot of power if you have the ignition system to fire it, and it cost's on average of $35 a gallon.
"Nitrous" is short for nitrous oxide. This is an oxidizer. Which when added to another fuel can make a lot of added power, but be careful, if you don't know what your doing you can destroy an engine in the wink of an eye.

I have been having second thoughts about installing the dual Carburetor in my car. I don't fully know how much extra gas will this mod will do.

My 1975 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS is one heck of a tank, because their is plenty of room for all the things that I planning to put thier. Some of the things that I am planning to put in is my moded xbox with a couple of LCD screen from playing games to watching DVD movies. In my trunk I have more than enough room for my Sound system and for me to put Nitrous in their.

Re: The fast CAR

I think I do know what it might take to put nitrous in my car, so that is why I am planning to overhaul the Engine and the Transmissions before I plan to put any type of nitrous of any kind in my car.

If your going to use more than a 75hp shot on the "Button" you'll need more than just an overhaul.

I also am planning to do allot more modes to my Big Block engine. Just in case I do some how might mess up this engine, I have a spare one on the side just in case if any thing was to happen.

Hay big1 since I am barely starting out in making these modes to my car, and since I do not no that much out NOS, I think that it would be in good interest in my being to start out in a starters kit for my car before I fully learn about NOS, then I will gradually improve my Nitrous Oxide System in time before I get in to the real Heavy STUFF.

My 1975 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS has been sitting in my driveway for about a good 11 year's or so, me and my pop have took the car out 2-3 times in the 11 year's. The car has about 350,000 orig. miles and needs a little work. My main problem with it is when I disconnect the battery from the car it turns off. We just put in a new alternator and fuse regulator in, so what might be the problem, I think that their might be a shortage some where under the hood.
