    Why not nitrous?
    Cheaper and just as effective.

    Thought about that too, if anybody has any kit suggestions for a NOS kit let me know. Preferably 1 from Jeg's or Summit will work too. Thx in advance.

    I run the cheater plate system for a 4150 carb, works great but like everything I do i go overboard.

    I run that system with a separate 1gallon fuel cell that I put in 120 octane VP in, so when press the go fast button it adds the 120 fuel with the n20.
    I also run a seperate fuel pump and filter with a Hobbs switch and a fuel PSI gauge in the dash.
    Better safe then sorry.

    Nitrous is fun when set up properly. ask cs19 I beleve he is the king of n20, I have a junior system compared to the big players on here.

    Holly blue aint gunna cut it. If you add a huffer your gunna need to add a better fuel pump. Then maybe add -8 or better. Then ya need a enderly check valve or fuel regulator that will feed the thirsty carbs on top. Less you get it EFIed. Uh thats just the fuel system. Your electrical is gunna need a boost. But you can get by with and HEI.

    Did I mention the Pyrometer. Jet kit or nice AFR meter set up. Not nessessary but a failsafe to keep that motor from Sploding. I think my pyle was faster before the blower. All the added weight. But now its all about the sound. Yea its a bit more powerful but it just boils water now. Did I also mention the bronze or Stainless steel impellar you'll need. .

    Theres more but I'll leave it at that.

    You are talking about a "STOCK" motor here. Very limited on boost you can run and limited on the shot it can take as well. Think about building a motor. Just sayin.

    put a Whipple Charger on it, make boost right off idle, don't kill your motor and have fun haulin ass. Call Dustin @ Whipple (559) 442-1261 and give him your boats info, size, weight, baseline eng, etc and let him tell you what will work best. Nitrous only makes power WFO, while a Whipple Charger lets you catch and pass em rolling on the throttle instead of WFO. Depends on what blows up yur skirt I suppose *wink*
    Everything electrical has smoke in it.... and it's not done till you let the smoke out!

    I think I would put a nice set of heads on it first and let the engine breathe.

    Save some money for an engine build, and just throw a 125 shot of n2o on there.

    You are correct, i've talked to a few people and heard that 125 shot would be safe, but you know how people talk. Thx

    I like the catch and pass idea, that way they don't see it comming. Thx, i'll give a call.



    Finding the right setup and everything i need to make it right (and safe), is what i need from you guys. I appreciate all the input and more if you have it, this is all "greek" to me.

    They say that you can No2 or boost on a stock short (cast pistons), but you just can't. ABSOLUTE minimum buy forged pistons! Then you can properly gap the rings for the nitrous. I have boosted two cast piston engines (454,327) without properly gapping the rings. (boosting stock engines) Both engines pulled the pistons apart above and below the rings. The ring grows from the heat, binds up on the cylinder and breaks the ring land under the ring then pulls the top off of the piston. The amount that you can run isn't worth the hassle. 5psi of boost or 100hp of nos.
    Others will disagree, and others I am sure have done it with success. I have done it with very unsatisfactory results.
    As for me, I always have to ruin my own $#!+ before I believe!

    There is an inexpensive used centrifugal in the parts section. You could easily blow through a Holley and make some good power. If you choose to blow through PM me.

    Many will say you can take a bone stock motor and put ahuffer on top. Can it be done. Yup.

    Everything these guys have hinted are true. Forged piston, Wider ring gaps and a cam made for a blower are just the start. With all that air your gunna need the heads to help it breath. The carbs are gunna need to be built for the blower. Regular carbs are going to frustrate the hell out of you. It will be fat on the bottom then as you speed up your way to lean.

    Your exhaust valves need to be enconels!!! Do not skimp on this. It will cost you tripple if you do!!! Flat top or dished pistons to keep your compression low.

    With the blower being added your tiny fuel lines that work today wont feed your thirsty carbs. I had to custom make mine outta 1/2" pipe. I also added a Areotek Fuel pump rated for 1100hp fuel delivery. Along with the fuel regulater design to work with a blower set up. Im hooked now on the blower feel and sound. But if I were to do it all ovewr again. I would have just placed a bad ass sheet metal tunnel ram and 2 1150Dominators on top and added a scoop nad had a great time with it. Now I'm so hooked it dont matter how many parts I break with the blower. But in the end. Its a costly exchange. Good Luck.

    Heres why I'm hooked.




    Really I wish I had listened to Farmer John and Sleeper CP when I did mine. I didnt and it cost me.
