Read Now lets be serious!

I own an EA falcon I6 its done 200,000 kms it has 2.5 inch zorst extractors and airfilter with cold air.

Now I want to install NOS, and I need to know these few questions based on using 75hp...

Will I need the engine rebuilt with forged pistons etc, if so what will I need???

How legal/illegal is it, Ive heard you can have it but hoses must be unpluged???

How much would I be looking at paying for one of these kits???

Re: Now lets be serious!

Good god, hasnt the effect of those compressed air cans worn off yet?!

I know its prob. none of my bus. and good on you for getting the Falcon up to scratch, but seriously, its an EA. Not bagging them, but is all this worth it? I utterfly refuse to do any more mods (apart from easy stuff) to mine, simply cos it's like throwing money into a pit and never seeing it again.

As for the technical side of NOS, got no idea, but I reckon you might have some issues with an engine with that many kms?

Re: Now lets be serious!

ah actually one thing i do know - if Plod finds you with NOS hooked up on a public road, kiss your licence goodbye for a while. I dont think Insurance will like it much either.

Re: Now lets be serious!

My personal opinion is that NOS is a waste of time and money in this country, because it is illegal to use on the street. Just imagine having a car that runs 13/14s on the track, but is a 15/16 second slug on the street!

Re: Now lets be serious!

agreed, unless its a strip car, i wouldn't bother.
make it a good streetable (legal)clean car and you'll be turning more heads then by having NOS.
i don't agree with back2thefutura in the way of 'not modding due to losing money' do you lose money on going to the movies? do u lose money on buying anything except a house?

the moment you buy a car, unless its a highly unique car, you're losing money.
the moment i choose to drive a stock car, i hope someone shoots me!

Re: Now lets be serious!

Well obviously you dont cos youve spent how much ony your EF again?!

I agree to a point, but personally I'd rather a BA than a heavily modded EF that would cost me a lot to make even keep up with a stock BA. That's my personal perference, just like yours is to do up the EF.

Re: Now lets be serious!

nah thats fine, i just don't see the point in knocking modding an older car when it comes to money, when we all know, the moment u buy a new car, the value drops rapidly, atleast with something like an EF/EL, the value's already steady and only going to drop slowly.

Re: Now lets be serious!

any car fitted with NOS is immediately unroadworthy and unregisterable. i believe you will probably need stronger internals as your K's are getting up as well.
