Cold Nitrous Fusion.

I also looked at putting in a dual fuel pump and smaller pulley, but I decided on NOS for a few reasons:

1) Street-ability - What I'm running now is huge for the street. With NOS I can have the extra power at the track, but not run around with it all the time.

2) Temperature - Our summers are brutally hot here. A shot of NOS is great for cooling that Whipple down instantly at the track.

3) Coolness - There's nothing cooler than seeing a cloud of NOS shooting up from a car at the track; or a street meet for that matter.

I'm going with a 75 shot. I know it might be a bit risky, but it sure will be fun! If I blow it up, it'll give me an excuse to put the LSX in.

This should be fun to watch!

By the way, your car is definitely a beast now...I got to check out the work you and ARD have been doing to the car when I stopped by ARD on Friday. Looks great with those wheels and has that proper 'don't mess with me' sound! Can't wait to see what it'll do at the track.

Pssh that's just a bunch of piping all bent up. I think an apprentice was using it to learn how to bend pipe and threw it aside.

Russ what pulley are you running on your Whipple? I was thinking about doing a pulley swap but can't make up my mind.

Don't you have traction issues already Nick?

Russ, do you have a specific goal you're shooting for with your car?

Right now I have the 3.75, and ended up at 9.3 max boost. If you pulley any higher I'm afraid you'll start going lean at higher RPMs.
