[QUOTE=bones64;117668 As for nitous being a cheater///////// no ! If both racing have it.... even steven. If your racin to brag and you use it to beat someone that dosent have it... MOST DEFINATELY. [/QUOTE]

See I don't understand that, how is it that just because one person has nitrous and the other doesn't they are a cheater? So if I loose to someone who has turbos can I call them a cheater? They are both ways of getting more oxygen into the combustion chamber to make more power. How is one cheating and one is acceptable?

What do you mean nitrous can get expensive? It is one of the cheapest forms of big horsepower out there.

Initally it's much cheaper. I guess it depends on how much you use it in the long run though. The up side to the bottle is the fact it's easy to transplant from one vehicle to another.

Boost, anytime you need the bottle it will be empty...trust me...I ran N20 for ages....the amount you eventually have in refills you coulda bought boost and used it 10x more.
I love boost, I have had a bunch of boosted cars, and it is addictive. My current "boosted" car is a real handful on spool up....every time i smile.

I'm inclined to think that boost is a better choice for the street, but for cost efficiency at the track, the bottle is hard to beat. I have to admit that I like all the power adders, but I do think some are better in certain situations. Seeing that you have a GN, I can certainly see why you love boost so much. You should post some pics and stats for us!

I've always liked superchargers.

I don't like turbochargers very much- the sounds they make get on my nerves. Part of it is the spooling up and winding down that isn't quite in sync with the engine, and there's very few sounds that bug me more than a loud blow off valve.
That being said, I know there are turbo setups that don't make quite so much of that noise, and there are certainly applications where I'd want a turbo, hands down. They're perfect for things like boats and airplanes (piston planes, obviously) where you'll be at a fairly constant throttle setting. And I think the things that Lingenfelter does to Corvettes with their twin turbo packages is pretty amazing.

Can't deny that Nitrous Oxide would be fantastic on a drag strip as long as it's set up properly, but this is by far my least favorite of the three. Part of it is that I want whatever I'm driving to put out the same amount of power (or at least pretty close) every time I put my foot down, as long as I have gasoline in the tank. There are also a ton of misconceptions about the stuff, particularly in pop culture, thanks in part to movies like The Fast and the Furious. I've had to explain more times than I'd care to remember how Nitrous Oxide is neither flammable nor explosive.

So there are good applications for all three, but for a vehicle that I'm gonna drive on the street, I'd prefer a supercharger.

I feel your pain, Dan. I don't know what makes people think N20 is a fuel. It's an oxidizer, people! In the end, it does the same thing a blower or turbo does - it puts more oxygen in the cylinder except it's done chemically and not mechanically. When I drag raced a few years ago, our ET's became more consistent when we used it because we were esentially creating our own atmosphere.

that's pretty interesting stuff- never thought about how N2O could increase consistency
