Yes there is.

Had one under a 350 on a 173 holden.

Sold the plate for $35 i think.

If you can't find one make it! easy peasy

How did the old holden six go with n20. How much did run and how did you go about tuning it for N20?

Cheers,
Pete

Re: N20 plates for 2 barrel holleys

It went bloody good!!

In a LC so it was fun.

On 75HP, but we didn't care about the engine because of how common they are(you can buy them at milkbars)

I set it up myself. Basic tune, check fuel pressures, etc.

If you want to know more, just ask. :)

Re: N20 plates for 2 barrel holleys

I always thought running n2o lines in a car was legal in any state in aust. Can you confirm this?

As long as the bottle isnt in.

75hp is what im thinking for the crossflow down the track. Was your plate a gas only one or gas/fuel. Leaning out an engine with n20 will go bang in no time so im wondering how you combat this if the plate is n20 ONLY and not injecting that extra fuel.

Isnt it best practise to also use spark plugs a few points colder?

Re: N20 plates for 2 barrel holleys

It is illegal in some states, by varying definitions though.

Some you are not allowed to have the line connected, some not the controlling connected, some you can't even have a bottle in your car (not even to transport it).

It is allowed in a lot of motorsports though.

Using it on the roads is pretty silly, yet, "its only illegal if you get caught"

75HP is plenty enough for a street, stocker crossflow.

DO NOT use a dry system. Steer clear of them. I used/use a wet system. One spray bar for nitrous, one spray bar for petrol.

Leaning out an engine can make it go bang, nitrous won't.

There are a lot of things that are considered 'best practice' when running n2o, but too many things too list in a post.

Some of the more important things are fuel pressures, colder plugs, timing retard, good fuel, etc.

Any more queries shoot.

Re: N20 plates for 2 barrel holleys

With a carb setup and mechanical pump how do you get the extra fuel to the plate without an electric pump setup?

Also, whats a holden slurry????

Re: N20 plates for 2 barrel holleys

Easily.

Make sure your existing pump supplies enough pressure to the carb.

Buy a shitty electric $35 pump from repco or bursons, or if you are a bit worried about your engine going bang, buy a better pump and a 4psi normally open switch.

Hook the electric pump up to your n2o plate. go for it.

Please let me know what your intentions are. do you car about your car/driveline? do you just want to experiment with nitrous?

A Holden Slurry is a re-badged Holden Scurry van. I call it the slurry and have re-badged it a Ford =).

It is a 996cc engine that I've turbo'd.

I might have a play with it after i get my 500 working right.
My intentions are to get the xf into 14 sec zone down the quarter. Bang for buck n20 is my next option i want to take but limit power to a max of 75hp as i dont want to rebuild the bottom end as its pretty fresh wish a reco less than 30,000 ago by waggot.
