Right now I’m having an engine built and nitrous seems like the way to have your cake and eat it too. So I think its good to start the process as educated as possible as to what can be done, and get a good balance of compromises.
No worries then. Just thought I'd ask
Unless you can easily afford it, or you want to use the gas alot, I wouldn't worry about a forged bottom end. Just forged pistons.
You may even find that in the end you won't need 200HP nitrous into it. You might find that 150HP makes your pucker squeeeeze tight. lol
Run good fuel. All the time. like at least 95 octane pump, if not 98.
Have you dizzy graphed to suit, better than having to retard the timing each time you wanna use the gas. And have a good ignition system. Go over everything.
Go colder plugs, probably at least 2 heat ranges.
Have a nice free flowing exhaust. Nitrous needs to get out quick so it can get the new stuff in quick.
Fuel system. Spend a lot of time, thought and a bit of money here. Get good pump/s that can handle what you want them to do and more. Have nice piping running everywhere, no kinks, where bends, tiny fittings, etc. Make sure that under power (driving) that the pumps will continue to be fed. One little starve and BOOM!
Have the car tuned right before playing with the gas. Its a good starting point. Plus nitrous will only make any small problems now bigger.
Run a hobbs/pressure switch on your nitrous fuel side to cut power to the arming circuit should fuel pressure drop (this can save the previous mentioned boom!)
Try and run a return style reg for the nitrous fuel side. It will make tuning an ease, and give a nicer feel when you hit the gas. much smoother.
There are a STACK more things to do, but it might be easier to e-mail or call me.
Most of important of all is a good tune from someone that knows what they are doing. This can be the difference between it all.
Your on the right track. Do plenty of research before making a mistake.
The NOS website is good for advice and has a heap of FAQ's answered.
ps. Nitrous is addictive. It is extremely likely that every vehicle you own after having used nitrous, will be fitted with it... lol
