A long time ago I was beat in a quarter by an old chevelle w nitrous. I had him, and he knew it, then, bam, he took me. I had him beat, my 302 had his boring old 396 strokewise, and I had the quick. But dam, he sure did beat me.

Instead of using nitro, have you considered a turbocharger. You have a more consistent increase in power throughout the curve, all within rpm range. It may cost a little more but the benefits are much greater.

btw, i just finished the exhaust on my chevelle, and you little honda enthusiasts can cry over this.

I'm running 2 1/2" exhaust all the way. Yummy.

<<Man, when he kicked the water on that 500 horse pig would RUN>> You sure he didn't have a nitrous kit also? I run a water injection system for low octane gas, it doesn't add any power, just helps high compression engines burn lower octane fuel without having to kill the timing advance....

What I meant was, with the water, he could use the HP he had with high oct pump gas. W/O, the pinging would scare you. I was not trying to imply the water added HP.
