Interseting... because I know it does pretty well on the vaulcan motor but the drivetrain is the different story!! As for the drivetrain 4.0l or 3.0l also I can understand how much stress it will put on it! But thanks anyways for respond guys!

it can easily handle it man.... if my little bitty ole civic could handle a 75 shot.... a ranger can hold 100....... . rule of thumb, dont double the horse power you have

IE my civic had 115
my first shot was a 50... 50x2 100... not doubled
second was 75 75x2 150.. dangerious...

was that at the wheels hp or flywheel, civic? im guessing flywheel...

DOnt double your hp? I garuntee that thing didnt have 115 at the wheels...

So, maybe 85hp due to drivetrain loss of hp...

50x2 = 100 , pass 85....

You dont know what your talking about...lol

Re: Brother/Sister- Ranger Meet Pics 56K maybe

good thing this was brought back up

it isnt NOS!, NOS is a brand name, there are many different NITROUS kits out there, and IMO and from expericences my friends with nitrous have had, NOS isnt the best kit out there...

also, im not sure where you got your idea of hp to nitrous ratio, most people go by the amount of liters the engine can hold....

22% drive train loss is what I figured on my old 3.0l. I guessed my vehicle's weight (with me and my crap in it too), took an E.T. from the track, and the advertised H.P. of the engine. That was a 3.0l manual by the way. So 22% on a good day for a manual, and that was with near perfect shifts.

I have very little knowledge on nitrous, but my friend is running a 75 shot on his 2.5L 4 banger(Nissan Sentra Spec V). I think you could handle between 75 and 100 shot on a stock 4.0L as long as your easy on it.

I have a 1.8 and I can safely handle 50...WOW 50 HP -rolls eyes-. If you want to be the first to find out go for it. But more cubic inches more you should be able to handle.

If you want to be safe on the engine run 75 shot...oh shyt late for class late.

you dont understand...

Its not because the engine is bigger, so automatically it can handle more nitrous.. Stop thinking like a caveman...

These SOHC engines have a returnless fuel system,
when you spray, inside the intake manifold, you get puddling, of the nitrous, unused nitrous, and what does that puddled nitrous do inside the intake manifold..?

BAM! bye bye manifold.. Its not as easy as u think, you have to get rid of the access nitrous thats going inside the intake manifold..

The 97/98 Mountanier/Expolorer's came with a return fuel rail system.. Get that, around 600 bucks ..

And the engine could handle more of the nitrous.. Thing is, how much exactly do you want to spray into a plastic intake manifold?

But, you would also have to upgrade fuel systems, the stock fuel system can only compensate the nitrous/fuel ratio up to so big of a shot..

Too big of a shot, and not enough gas... Bye Bye engine..I've said enough.

Ok, now, no more topic archealoging.. This was posted in June of 03..
