Re: NOS on stock Boss260
Ive got a BA XR6, stock there around 130RWKW, without NOS Im now running around 165RWKW due to Cramic coated pacemakers, Herrod SS 2.5", SS Cold Air Induction + 75mm throtal body, K&N filter. (as yet no computer mods, can't make up my mind to super charge or not) By the way Blaupunkt DVD player, GT starter, and FPV pedles and dropped King springs all round.
Im running a Dry Sportsman NOS System at 75 to 100 shot, I think its a Sportsman, I'll up date if Im wrong. Without a turbo theres isn't much need for a wet system. Thats an opinion from my experiance but I'm no expert. If anyone dosn't agree please educate me.
Without a turbo or blower a wet system is very hard to tune, you'll pull more power but with NOS a long tune is like walking on ice. You want to get it right the first time and you want to get it right quickly. DON'T GET GREEDY.
Here's somthing for the new NOS owner in winter theres only 2 words to remember 'BOTTLE WARMER'. Have a look at this years NSW Ticford club Dyno day you'll see my results. Minus a bottle warmer the day low temps cost me at least 25RWKW. This was a sad leson to learn. But the guy who beat me in forced had 3 goes at it and stuffed his turbo on his last run. Keeping all that white smoke in mind is the only thing that stops me crying.
Presure, bottle presure is the key to big HP. Keep presure up and keep your competitors behind you.
Get a book on NOS and start reading up on kits and NOS gear, talk to the good people at Holly (Bens the man) about whats on offer from them, theres no substitute for quality and their equipment will cut it with anyones.
Ive got 287.4RWHP with good presure but I haven't run the car on the 1/4 yet. Sadly I may have to sell it before I ever do (let not talk about that).
All I can say is NOS comes on like a bitch on heat. No turbo will out do you 100kmph to 180kmph times, I've been walking away from my mates new GT like his standing still (he's very cut).
Watch Ford Performance Mag in the next couple of months for the installation job and some nice cheesy pic's of the blow off.
Talk to Con and the boys at C&V Performance, Sydney, let them know Greg pointed you towards them. If its NOS they know.
(they didn't do me any deals but they're the best and they'll make you pay for it, but is it realy worth any risk?)
Good luck with it all,
Remember if they don't have NOS they don't have a chance.
