Who's running Nitrous?

I was thining about buying a NO2 kit for drag racing outings. Seems the diesels run dry systems. The companies actaully claim lower EGT's. 50-75 hp seems to be what the kits will do. Any info would be very helpful. Brands, technical info, etc.

Yes the diesels run dry shots only. I'd look in to Zex or NX express systems if I were in the market. A single shot on a WOT position sensor should work well for you. Be advised you won't make a whole lot of extra power with nitrous if you don't have extra fuel to burn. Nitrous in a diesel is nothing more than chemical turbo charging so to speak. You can definitely expect cooler EGT's.

One would think if you are hurling black smoke out like you do in the street race, extreme or smoke mode you have extra fuel to burn?

yup...if you got smoke comin out the tailpipe under WOT..you have extra fuel to burn...thats why people say smoke is just wasted horsepower

But when diesels are turned up they smoke and they have more power. Kind of a double edged sword.

Wish I know what all the tunes I had really did/.

I believe if you inject so much nitorous it is called a cold quench and will dramatically drop your egts and give you power at the same time. Tell me if this sounds correct?

Well it does cool EGT's but if you put to much and don't have the fuel to match it you will actually lose HP

your adding more fuel to make more hp, but its adding more fuel then the turbo can add air to burn, therefore there is smoke out of the exhaust...there has to be oxygen present to burn the added fuel...the turbo adds (x) amout of air to take care of (y) amount of fuel..if the air cant take care of the fuel it is exited out the tailpipe...nitrous is just gas that has extra Oxygen present to give to burn more fuel..so the nitrous gives your unburnt fuel a complete burn causing that fuel to be converted to power

if you add to much nitrous you will LOSE HP...if you add an extreme excess of N2O you can actually stall the engine because you end up causing a lack of fuel

REally? Quite a few people would beg to differ and I've never had an issue with it on my gas powered engines.
