    Looks and sounds so angry. It's a shame that shitty music ruins the sound. Post more.

    The spelling was done as an inside joke.

    He is basically running "straight pipes". Here is a pic of them as they come off the turbos:

  9. Why not use the nitrous to do something useful? Hasn't it been demonstrated in fairly controlled environments that it gives a significantly more benefecial boost to performance when used to actually make more power than cool intercoolers?

    Perhaps, but he doesn't want to use it in his engine. I never would in mine, either. "Heat soak" is a big issue when discussing turbo cars.

    Why'd he decide to use NOS over water injection :confused: Pretty sweet looking ride :)

    On the intercoolers? Not sure. I'll have to ask. I would assume that it is a cooler charge?
     
  15. I don't know a whole lot about heak soak, but I was under the impression that it was more of an issue after stopping the car when it has been driven hard. :dunno:

    I also think water/alcohol injection would have been a cheaper and more effective plan for just cooling intake charge, but if that makes him happy, more power to him. :o

    I don't think that "cost effective" really comes into play here. ;)

    Wow - if i were buying a 100K car, i'd probably want something different than what all my "friends" drove.

    Yah the intercooler. I'd have to look that up to see which is more beneficial.

    50% Water/50% methanol is a pretty common setup.

    Shop owners first suggestions for cooler intake charge is nos.

    ...or propane. A very good solution as well.

    Yep. I wanted to use water injection for my up coming project.

    I was told that if I have a good enough ignition system I wouldn't have to worry about it.

    The turbo kits that are getting made are good for .5 bar for my 190E.

    Then tell him to use CO2 gas instead, it'll do just as much (or little, as the case may be) as expensive N2O...

    Actually, just tell him to stop being a ricer. Spraying compressed gas onto the intercooler does fuck all... Tell him to spray water on it instead.

    water injection is COMPLETELY different to intercooler cooling sprays :slap:

    Explain then I've only know what I've been told :o So what your saying that their's more than one way to setup water injection :confused:

    Okay...

    Water injection is spraying an atomised mist into the intake plenum... It actually goes INTO the cylinders where it flashes into steam because it's so hot in there... This evaporation process reduces combustion temperatures/intake air, resulting in a much higher detonation threshold... What does that mean? Water injection doesn't actually give you any more power in itself, but because of the higher detonation threshold, you can now run more boost, and/or advance your ignition timing, both of which will result in more power.

    You're right in that a 50/50 water/methanol mix is usually used here as that's accepted as the best mixture to inject for best results... But 100% water works nearly as well...

    Spraying N2O/CO2/H2O whatever ONTO the intercooler has the effect of actually cooling the intercooler, making it more efficient as it's colder and theoretically removes more heat from the air passing through inside it... Nothing actually goes INTO the engine like what happens in Water Injection.
