Nitrous on Capri SA

hey guys, just wondering how much my capri SA turbo would handle as far as nitrous oxide. Would 100hp be overboard? would 50hp be nice?

Re: Nitrous on Capri SA

Hmmm ? with turbo?? N20 actually doubles power with turbo, so yes 50 to 70 shot...I'd start at 50 jets...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

yer so ive heard, intercooling properies of N20 supposedly make it run alot better with a turbo.

How would 50hp go with a 200,000km engine?

200.000 km I'd take it EASY !!!
Is it completely stock? I'd be looking into better dump pipe and good flowing exhaust..
An engine freshen up wouldn't be too bad either...
Yes N20 makes heaps more exhaust flow, just what turbo's need...

yer its had a rebuild 30-50,000km's ago, and its relatively stock. Running 12psi rather than the stock 8psi, just needed some extra power lol.
