are you a burper or purger???????

hi all just wondering if you nitrous users burp or purge your lines.

also if you burp was wondering if you had a certain way to do it.
Mine is a couple of quick pushes one in second and one in third while doing burnout.

Re: are you a burper or purger???????

Depends.

You really only need to pruge the nitrous line if either you've just connected the line, and want instant response, or if your pressures aren't 100%.

You running a nitrous and fuel pressure gauge?

What are you pressures doing before and after the blips in 2nd and 3rd?

Consistency is the main reason for doing this.

Re: are you a burper or purger???????

The heat of the engine turns the liquid to gas (wet system), which means the nitrous is less dense which = less power. Purging before you launch lets the gas out and provides fresh dense liquid = more power. Having constent power levels makes it easier to tune to i would think. Im no expert but that's what i gather from everything i have read. Please correct me if im wrong, also would there be any benifit in purging a dry system.

Sorry, didn't I just cover all that? The MAIN reason for purging is for consistency.

If there is air lock, or engine bay heat is too high, you won't have desired line/bottle pressure.

Purging a dry would apply the same.

An engine with extra fuel and no nitrous isn't a big deal.

An engine with nitrous and no extra fuel is a fukcing BIG deal.

i was looking at the "wank" option but the price of a purge kit is not justified although now they have one with a blue led light that makes the plume glow blue,lol that must be the "superwank" series.(could sort one from lpg solenoid perhaps but bahh).

ttnos8: yes i hear where you are coming from. as i am not running return line for fuel solenoid and car sits around for while between runs i burp to make sure no vapour lock in either lines.
