see now if you had a clutch you wouldnt have trouble at all. where do you launch? usually nitrous boosts the super low rpms torque through the roof and doesnt aid much in the higher rpms, but that varies from car to car. i know thats the general rule of thumb with our 4bangers. you could try spraying later in 1st gear if you were having that much trouble off the line. whats the 60'? and whats the best n/a run?
yeah torque is true about nitrous especially with my engine. I tried spraying later and all it did was slow me down. The best run under a 75 shot I got spraying 3.5k was a 16 flat. I got about 200 ft of torque at 2500rpm with a 75 shot. If I had a header it would of been like 230 ft lbs. One guy had a i/h/e 75 shot, auto, safc2, same engine he made 260+ ft lbs.
On the 15.7 run my 60' was a 2.5 ROFL
I quit nitrous because most guys that used it blew their engine. The KA24DE has a weak piston design. Once the pistons and all the other components are upgraded the engine is spectacular. There is even a KA24DE running around that's making 718 whp.
Best NA run is 16.9 I would of broken into the 16.8's but you can see what happened at the track. The engine has potential and so does the tranny. really long gears are good for boost. Especially a lot of boost.
