    Default Going nitrous, best options

    Hi all, been looking at setting up a small nitrous system on my 355 to get that little more out of it and basically after the best options for systems, fuel etc.
    Now the issue i have is the high compression i have at 11.5-1 on pulp fuel.
    Whats the best option here, run a race fuel like ms109 or similar, jet up the carb to suit or maybe even change to e85.
    Im only looking at a 150 hit so im thinking ring gaps etc should be good.
    What are people's thoughts and experience with it.
    Car currently makes around 520fwhp.
    Cheers Chris

    Run the race fuel in a separate tank just for the nitrous... Leave the rest alone.

    So basically leave carby untouched on pulp and run race fuel just on the nitrous,
    Also how many heat ranges down in plugs is required.
    Thanks Chris

    OK, play safe and go to an 8 range to start off and preferably a non-projected tip. You may end up with a 7, but plugs are cheap. Can you get a B8ef plug ?
    At the end of the day, you will need two sets of plugs anyway, if you are still driving the streets.

    Yeah exactly mate, definitely keeping it street driven.
    It'll go on the dyno once up and going anyway so we'll get a good idea.
    Whats the behind a non projected tip, to keep it further away?

    Too easy mate, i wonder what options of plugs are available to suit that heat range, what equivalent etc.
    Im also curious now to weather anyone knows the legalities of mounting a small fuel cell in a wagon are, as that could almost be the trickiest part.

    dunno but most rego authorities dont like nitrous system fitted even though its useless without the bottle. certainly dont want to get pulled up by the cops with a bottle in let alone hooked up

    I didn't think you could put a fuel cell in the cargo area as it is not sealed off from cabin. Fumes etc.
    I thought fuel cells in general needed to be able to be externally filled? Then have all that EPA crap...

    Think I'll look at getting one to fit in the spare wheel well that can then be sealed. I definitely dont want one inside the car.
    At least that way it is removable if i want to go on a decent trip to put spare back in.
    Haha why is it these cars are never complete.
