not many places to fill the bottle round here bud i fitted it to my mates escort and he had an empty bottle 90% of the time think somewhere in manchester was supposed to be supplyin it but dont think theyve sorted it yet ill try an find out off me mate
just got off phone to the GF. how do they manage to talk us into things, she is getting me thinking about whether i should get it now......Adi, see if u can find out if there is somewhere to re-fill round these parts and i will leave that as the deciding factor, just thinking, gearbox, clutch, driveshaft, head gasket etc will be wearing down a hell of alot quicker wont they? but f**k it
been reading up everything i can find on nitrous and for a PROPERLY set up system your looking at;
£400-progressive controller(otherwise i will be spinning everywhere and this bad boy puts less strain on engine components)
£150-£300-for fitting. i wonder which price it will be for a 16valver
£40-£100 setting up on the rollers to make sure ignition is advanced correctly
these are all lowest prices quoted also, so im looking at well over a grand for a decent set up. I have the £££ BUT not sure if its what i want now i have read up on it (changed my tune from the original post i know)
think i will hold my horses and see if i find anything else, also got to ring a few places 2moro and have a chat, will keep you all informed!!
you need to stick quite a bit in to make a good differance as well and most of the time you dont get back wot uve put in i.e 50bhp jets aint gonna giv u 50 bhp
mates escort didnt do anything with 25 jets lots better with 50s, we fitted it then he got it set up on the rollers
that was without a progressive think he ended up with an extra 30bhp but a big climb in torque especially from lower revs which we dont reckon was doin the engine much good, it did go really well though with it on but the gas didnt last long
did LOADS of phoning and going to see places today. Zex nitrous seems to be the best option so far, not gonna bother with a progressive controller. Looks like i will have to fit it myself though, but prices on Zexs seem to differ, from £350 to £700. had my car rolling roaded too and my car is running fine, really smooth torque and bhp lines BUT on my first run my car got 129bhp. then 136bhp then 134!!!!this is at the flywhell so after much crying and "oh my god"ing ive come to the conclusion that the rolling road is wrong cos i just recently had a set up racee with one of my mates standard valvers and left him, also compared to Adis clio it is neck and neck so i def. have over 137bhp. think this guy was trying to get some money out of me
well i wouldnt say a kit is too hard to physically install, bit of electronics and pipework really, id say getting it set up correctly is harder. But with a PBV, air/fuel ratio meter and a nitrous pressure guage as long as the ignition and fuelling is sorted there should be no problems using it at the correct revs when the nitrous is up to pressure.
if u can get to bolton my mate said he will fit it for u for £100!he fitted my nos through the induction kit though but he would put it were ever u wanted it to realy?i would go for the 50bhp jet though i had 25 and say if i would put it on in 2nd gear i would only feel the effects in 3rd becasue the jet aint big enough.
yeah i have, got 144 at th fly. since then ive had a cambelt change and oil change. the rollers i used for the 144 run were different/older then the one that gave me the 130 figure. been talking to some people about this today and the RR that gave me 130bhp is one of the most accurate in england!!! gonna put a post up on it any way
All this talk of Zex and NOS, theyre the new kids on the block, at least in the UK. Who you gonna call when your Zex kit doesnt work? Not Trev at Wizards of Nos in Doncaster thats for sure!
Rob- theres a lot to be said for straight line speed, remember when you hit the gas you are allowed to steer a bit as well if you want. Dont start being an Evo-reading hippy who drives a Caterham on the weekends, a 911 turbo to work, and whatevers the latest trendy hot hatch for a couple of months before trading it in for the next thing. Great handling is always worth having - a Clio has that in bucketloads, so why not have the straight line speed to go with it as well? Not that Im saying anyone should go for nitrous. It suits some people and not others. But there is nothing like overhauling a car that should be long gone - the look on peoples faces at the next lights is priceless.
