i was wondering if i could put nos on a fuel injected 280zx? ill be getting a wider throtal body and ram air induction soon but would like to venture into more hp with nos but dont want to blow up my car or hurt it from daily driving.

will

For us cluessless people what is NOS exactly its like nitro or something right gives you a boost correct? 1 is it legal?( in cali that is) doubt it. i know its expensive can you tell me anything else about it;)?
thanks

Re: clueless on nos

NOS is a system which feeds your engine with nitrious oxide. i have it on a somewhat shakey authority that every time you push the button (nos isnt always on) you lose 10,000 miles on your engine, just from the extra boost. could be wrong....

Re: clueless on nos

I am no authority on this but I've done my research on NOS and the possibilities of getting it for my turbo ZXT...

Let me begin with some basic ... ehh... now I remember I wrote something to be posted in my FAQ page which is not up yet but I'll try to copy/paste it in here...
...........................................
NITROUS
I am no wiz kid on this subject but know certain advantages and disadvantages. As we all know nitrous oxide is a gas wich is compposed of Nitrogen and Oxygen, in fact 2 molecules of Nitrogen (the most abundant air in the face of the earth) for each molecule of oxygen. The Nitrogen by itself does not produce any power neither oxygen. Oxygen is the part of the gas that has the power increasing potential when mixed with gasoline. Most of the systems depend on a push buttom to deliver nitrous, but those engineered systems depend on a rising rate system to activate it. This should be the best if you already have a strong engine (as the case on most Z's). Nitrous in its bottled (compressed) state is very very cool, that means that when you squirt nitrous on your intake charge it will cool the intake gasses providing some additional horsepower than the nitrous by itself (mixed with the proper amout of gas) produces. Nitrous and turbochargers combined are an excellent combo because nitrous works like an EXCELLENT intercooler and thus increasing the density (mass for a given volume) of the compressed charge. (Hint: If it is too dificult to find an intercooler and/or like what lots of people have to say about a properly tuned nitrous system, then use it 75hp or less on a stock turbo engine)
.............................................
I have to add that in my personal oppinion the manifold design in the L6 series is not that good for nitrous because of problems in distributions, maybe if the intake manifold were tapered or the throttle body were at the center of the 6 runners (ie Arizona Z car manifold). Maybe NOS can proove me wrong (I have not asked them) I think that maybe a fogger directed upstream produces a better distribution of the nitrous/fuel mixture on the intake charge.

well...
just my $0.02

Re: clueless on nos

Hey poeple.....
Before I say anything... Let me make it clear thatI do NOT have nos on my car, but,
I do know a bit about about...
What is it?? Nitrous Oxide is a gas that is fed into your gasoline / air mixture... Creating
anywhere from 75 to 175 extra horsepower...
It is a fairly inexpensive way to see MASSIVE power increases... Another good thing
about nitrous is you decide when to put it to use... Simply hit the heat button, give it a
second or 2 hit the fog button and you have an L28 powered rocket...
A complete NOS system with all of the hardware will run you around 4 or 5 hundred bucks.
As for instalation (dont try doing it yourself unless you are positive you know what you are
doing) it should be about 8 hundred bucks.... So, at the most it should run you about 1300
bucks...
A few things you may want to do BEFORE haveing a ns system plumbed....
1. Make sure your pistons are forged!
2. Make sure your brakes work! GOOD!!
3. Write a will, update your life insurance policy & tell your family you love 'em!

Have fun...

Nitrous systems require an Additional fuel supply to be provided when nitrous is introduced, otherwise you are liable to discover a unique new operating temperature, MOLTEN!!! Reason being, introduction of ONLY nitrous causes extreme leaning out of mixture, hence the common fear of engine destruction. A properly setup NOS fogger plate or direct port injection system need not be destructive at all. mikey
