Many variables. Honestly, go to a known shop and have them tell you whats involved and what your maximum induction should be.

Normally, its 1/3rd of the amount of cubic inches. Theres no real way to state what jet sizing to use as every engine if different in its base efficiency and reaction to such can vary greatly.

Before anyone complains of blowing things up.. Nitrous doesn't blow up an engine, bad planning and stupidity does.

I say it's a complete waste of time and money. There are a lot of other things you can do to a 4 cylinder to make it go faster without voiding your warranty. All that you'd accomplish out of putting nitrous on a new vehicle is voiding your warranty and having a ton of problems down the road with durability. Not to mention a Ranger or Mazda isn't a racecar so it's just not worth the hassle unless you have money to **** away and you're out of warranty. Put a set of underdrive pulleys, an exhuast, an electric fan, a tuner and an intake on it and it will start up every single day and give you the pep that you need until the 5/60 is done.

my buddy put a nitrous kit on his friends 4.0 ranger SOHC and all it had was intake,dumped muffler, gears and some good hooking tires and a 175shot and ran 12.30s 1/4

id say a 4cyl would be good for 50-75shot...

That is a feat I would LOVE to see. I watched one of my Milled SOHC engines take about a 125 does of the gas and go flying all over they dyno room.

175? on a stock bottom end? Are you SURE about that?

CORRECT installation, usage, and jetting of nitrous won't have any more of a detrimental effect on the life of your engine than any other major power adder would, fyi.

So many people think they understand nitrous. They don't.

Barrman is correct. With the proper controls of nitrous (most important), the octane, and the spark you can achieve bigger than average power gains.

Now having said that. I'd look to D for what the mechanical strength of the parts are. But at the same time just because parts failed does'nt mean it was a good nitrous / fuel / spark / rpm balance. Ramping nitrous for starters will go a LOOOONG way in keeping a motor together.

**if** you have it all balanced right your first failure would be a piston swelling and then scuffing / sticking in the bore.
Quite often people break rods and think it was too much power. Well.. you gotta define power. Rather I suggest it's huge leaps in power transitions that break rods. Not simple shot size.

Nitrous can be the cheapest way to get pushed back in your seat. My rule of thumb is nitrous HP at half the advertised HP of the motor. Also, stick with the manufacturers suggested jetting. NX has a good tech dept. The can usually specify the jetting for your specific application. They will keep the jetting a little rich to keep it safe.

I'm betting whomever installed this setup was ASSUMING it was that much of a dose. Theres more to determining the REAL value of the amount being inducted then just ' jet size '. A setup on a civic for 50 rwhp if moved to a ranger would garner a different value. If that setup was again moved to a Mustang, Vette or a Camaro, it would garner even different outputs.

I'm going out on a limb here and betting that ' 175 ' is a number someone pulled out of the air.

Teh SOHN block is ' average ' IMO in strength. It DOES have one solid advantage as it uses a 2 piece oilpan and the top half of it acts as a Stud Girdle for the crank. With having no floating valvetrain and a stud girdle on the bottom, the enging can zing through RPM's ( which the bottle loves ).

The Drawback? The stock rods are brittle and the pistons are shaped wrong for a really good burn.
