not true at all. it's only harmful if you go lean, then it's crashboombang.xxxfirexxx said:It depends actually. Nitrous is for when you don't have a lot of money but just want bursts of speed whenever you want it.
Nitrous, however, is very harmful to pistonrings and such and can blow your engine.
Turbochargers, heat your engine up more if you don't have a proper cooling system and you get a constant acceloration.
There's been some real innovation in turbo technology. Plus, it's free horsepower as opposed to giving up horsepower to gain horsepower. Turbos have potential thumup:doomsday said:Neither, supercharged. Unless it is diesel, then turbo it.
You are right about that, but a lot of people don't even know how to use nitrous. I mean, for example, the fast and the furious, blew his engine b/c he didn't even know how to use it. Not basing off a movie but still, you have to know how to use nitrous.zpyro said:not true at all. it's only harmful if you go lean, then it's crashboombang.
and turbo isn't constant acceleration, there's turbo lag until it spools up, unless it's a reaally small turbo
mawet and dry systems use the same NO2, except one is injected into the air intake (dry) and the other is mixed with the fuel (wet). ALL nitrous used in cars has sulfur added to prevent retards from huffing itxxxfirexxx said:Yeah, but u missed the part where I said I'm not basing off a movie, but it's true though, if you don't know how to use it u can mess it up.
Also, i disagree about the wet. No, the same amount of fuel is injected. Nitrous wet has a mixture to make it more powerful when sprayed, it's got sulfur and other stuff, but it's not safer to the engine. Have you ever seen drag racing where nitrous is legal? Look at the oil after ONE race, that's from nitrous wet.
