Well it was about time I started to put the orange ‘street beast’ back together.

So just checking over some tolerances!

Superb. It's been far too long since I've seen this car thrashed down the strip!

Hi Paul,

I’m so happy to see your updates here on The Lounge! Many many years ago you convinced me to go nitrous and once you have started with supercharging there is no turning back.

So will you use a nitrous controller again? Starting with a modest shot of the line and gradually increasing the amount of gas and fuel during the run?

Looking forward more updates!

Hello Kalle,

Glad you liked my way of thinking 😂 yes I’ll still be running the controller.

But I want to get a lot more street driving done, I’ve really missed driving about!!

All the best Paul

I hope it is OK that I share my nitrous dyno graph with you and the rest of the guys. 2332, CB Comp E by Jeff Denham, FK47 cam, 51 IDA’s.

[ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ]

After this I started having issues with my clutch. I did not use any sealer between the wedgemated flywheel and the crank so tiny amount of oil leaked through. It was sounding really fresh on nitrous and my initial plan was to gradually increase the nitrous up to 150 - 200 hp. Today I would have used injection and let the ECU do all the needed adjustments.

After this I invite Richie with friends to our summer cottage and that was that... turbo ever after.

Nice, how much nitrous were you running?

Kind regards

Calculated approx 75hp. I used a single jet system with a distribution fitting for both the fuel and the nitrous. Two crappy quality Holley pumps with a dedicated pump for the nitrous system including a in-line Hobbs switch.

If I was to build a new nitrous engine I would just use a dry shot and let the ECU add the needed fuel and remove timing.

Hello Kalle,

Must say I also use two Holley pumps which have been ok so far!
