Dry systems IMO are only good for up to 100 in short bursts. I knew a guy with a Dakota 6cyl spraying a 250 dry shot for minutes at a time on the freeway. He was genuinely puzzled when his motor popped! Told him he was retarded when he first talked about spraying on the freeway.
No clue what it was, kinda like I said, I'm not really that experienced with the go fast on the street stuff and NOS definitely isn't a dirt item you typically see on trucks. I do remember it was a nozzle that went directly in front or behind the throttle body though and his S10 was just a stock 4.3, nothing special about it. I also remember we did the full install in the driveway on a weekend day. Got it all setup and wired up and took it down to a safeway parking lot at the end of the street to test it live with the bottle open for the first time. I just remember he turned left and punched it and the rear end came around so fast that it was amazing! LOL He'd already put a posi in the rear so it broke loose really easy and got sliding...

Not sure how he popped it though honestly. He ended up pulling it and doing a V8 conversion. No clue what ever happened to that truck though after that really. I've kinda lost touch with the guy for the most part.

I have no experience with running nitro but I do know you are asking for trouble if not beefing up internals. I will be doing my first turbo install with my dad on his old 6.9 f-250. I got him a banks sidewinder kit for Christmas. We won't be doing the piston swap to lower compression but we will keeping the PSI pretty low until he's ready for a full rebuild. Just upgrading head gaskets and head bolts.

I understand how nitrous works and why but I have no interest in ever running it short of using it to blow up old enignes. I would like to run nitrous through a lawn mower engine just to see how long it holds together and how spectacularly I can get it to blow up!

anytime that you modify cars you are asking for trouble. Esp if you are doing it on a shoestring budget like most of us. I boosted a VR6 and it really never worked out. I was running a full stand alone system, larger injectors, and I was going soft, nothing hardcore. I was just running a small garrett T04 turbo. Nothing large by far, what I thought was going very very conservative. I was only planning on running 7lbs on low and 15lbs on high. The 15lbs was going to put me around 300whp which was good for a fwd car. I started off with a head spacer to bump the compression down... melted a piston. Put in a Schimmel built 3.0 long block with forged pistons... melted a piston. Luckly I was able to catch it before it got too bad. Nothing got into the cylinder wall, so I was able to use a flex hone on the cylinder wall and throw in a new piston. Just to melt another piston. My A/F number never got above 14.2 ever and was around 10 under full boost. My egt's stayed low, yet I still melted pistons.

The car was what I consider crazy fast. One of my first runs after throwing in the built motor it spun the tires in 3rd at around 100mph when it hit full boost. I had a guy crap talking at work saying that his built big block 69 Camaro had 700hp. So I played with him on the way home one day in my wifes stock 06 rustang gt. He only slightly pulled on it. So I shook it off and drove my car the next day. As expected he talked some crap. So I just responded with "Wow you smoked my wifes car good for you, are you ready to run now" @7lbs I pulled away @15lbs I thought he threw it in reverse.

Then the wife got pregnant and I had to part it out. I guess the moral of the story is don't play if you are not willing to pay. I guess you can say the same thing goes when you start lifting or doing some serious rock crawling.

Totally agree. The first lift I installed on my ZJ was cheapo 4 inch with no control arms and a crappy track bar bracket. CRAZZY DW. Then I bought a IRO 4in kit with control arms, a much more solid kit but I plan on ordering long arms when I get to that point. I wish there was a hobby as fun as cars that is as cheap as bird watching.

Sounds like you should be racing, not wheeling but if you're heavy with the right and don't know when to let up it will still break the bank to build something to hold up. Gotta know when to go slow and save the rig!

Bird watching is expensive!

Think you should be talking to Powr and not Puck. That guy has a lead foot with 100 lbs of steel strapped to it.

I've never been in the dirt with either, just basing on what I've picked up here and there on the forum...

Powr is a nut, I remember when we did tater ridge and he was leading. I had never driven the Red Rock loop that fast, esp not in the Jeep.

Put me in a car with good handling and I am golden, throw me in a Jeep and I am the slowest around. I am just more relaxed in the Jeep and don't feel the need to speed that much. I used to hit triple digits on a daily basis, now I am lucky to hit 75
