Discussion in 'Superchargers, Turbos, Nitrous' started by philly, Sep 17, 2014.
Well....It' a reachable goal ! Why not swing for the fences!!!
Thanks for the info Grumpy!
My wife is going to be soooooo pee'd when she spots that SDPARTS withdrawl in the checking!
my wife learned decades ago that I will by mutual agreement discuss with her, and she will with me,
any purchase either of us make over about $50 before we make a purchase, but I give her a good deal of latitude
and we both get what we want as long as the bills get paid on time,
IF the cash is available.(and it won,t compromise the family finances)
yeah, that requires some give/take ,
neither of us can go on s random shopping spree
It's Risky Nitrous make no mistake.
Especially 500-750-2000 Hp shots.
Favor Turbo charging myself.
Also most expensive to do for +700 -4000 Hp more.
You hear different stuff....thermal shock to Intake valves is a Big one.
Grumpy... My wife and I have the same relationship.. We have always based our living on my 40 hours and she buys the groceries with her check. We are fortunate enough that we make decent money.
Any overtime cash has always been put into our savings. With this project she is at her limits and has been pulling back on the reins. As long as I stay on overtime she has allowed me to put $300-$350 a week toward my truck.
Which I am soooo lucky for her to offer that and be happy. But I understand that she and I are within 10 years of retirement and this truck is not a good investment, meaning we will never get out what we put into it. She has shifted her thoughts to traveling the states with a fifth wheel and the costs that are going to come with it. I get it. She is just looking out for our future, and her pulling on the reins is a good thing.
The nitrous is one of those things that I am going to have to sell something or do a few side jobs for sure. But.. she will still be upset that I'm throwing money away!
Brain I am still learning about nitrous and I have heard about those things. I want to learn as much as I can about what I can and cant do. This is something I am looking to do for next season anyway.
I have heard Wide band O2 sensors are worthless tuning nitrous.
You read the spark plugs.
It's Emergency power.
I am going to try No Prep against Hellcats and Demons.
Likely see the 1000 Hp Hellaphanr at the track too.
One for The Corvette world.
All 100% percent have failed beating Dodge.
Grumpy knows also.
Well that sucks... I just bought a AEM wide band for the new motor. At least I can tune without the nitrous.
I am not an expert but I can hold my own with reading plugs.
Rumor has it... I may get to call out Dennis Anderson and his King Sling truck this August If I can get my Engine finished in time.
Their is a local monster truck driver who has taken an interest in my build and has built a new motor with my name on it LOL
My friend knows this guy and introduced him to me last year. He actually gave me a hand with the new blower setup last year.
So anyway my friend has been busy getting me some higher profile races lined up with out me knowing anything about it!!!
Grumpy has spark plug tuning charts.
I have seen them for Nitrous oxide plug reading pics in past too.
I keep a copy of those readings in my tool chest. they have helped me alot!
I read spark plugs yet.
Have a 1st gen AEM UEGO Wideband that reads in AFR.
OK Should have bought Lamba version maybe later this year get it.
Still use the Butt Dyno...mine.
Having Musclecars and a C4 gen Corvette I do the Burnout Tests.
Top speed checks too.
My wide band reads both ways. I have it set up to read Lambda
Its what is prefererred on high octane race fuel , Methanol & E85.
Mine came with a conversion chart AFR to Lamba.
They came out in 2004 AEM UEGO Wideband, I bought mine then. No rotary switch for AFR to Lamba. Just buy 1 or the other. I was familiar with AFR from the Ford EFI Tuning drag racers I knew.
