Re: what pistons for an N2O clevo?
Run Forgies. done.
From all reports I've seen, hypers are ok with SMALL amounts of gas, but anything over 100HP is touch and go. I personally have run gas on cast & hypers but if you are building an engine why not go for that little bit better.
svo347: does nitrous raise your cylinder combustion pressures?
What end result are you after? pyscho machine or sleeper or racer or??
Don't worry about an upper cylinder lube. Just run a wet nitrous system, and tune it properly. It will be fine, and if you run the nitrous often, your engine will be very clean inside. remember to change your engine oil often also.
Most upper cylinder lube kits are oil based, and so can be a disaster with nitrous. Also the backfireing chance of nitrous scares me with a lube kit.
Give me a few more pointers on what you actually want in the end and I'll add my suggestions.
