hello all, as you all may know, i am planning on mostly show (of course i'll put in e/i/h/and other junk) but i really think the nitrous looks cool coming out from the sides. i 'll probley be flammed for being a 'ricer' but i think it looks and sounds cool. i dont want to inject nos into my engine though. is there a way i could get it set up while still being able to shoot it from the sides, without it injecting it into the engine itself? thank you!

ps. i wasnt sure where to put this thread cause its about nos, but also about 'show'. :spin: please inform me!:thumbsup:

hahah do u mean a nitrous oxide purge? that's just a major waste of money, get a nitrous kit with purge capabilites man, it'll cost the same anyways.

yea purging nitrous is not supposed to be for show, it clears the lines of so the nitrous will flow thru better. if you want JUST for show and dont want to actually do nitrous, why not just install a CO2 purge. it's COUGHRICECOUGH but it'll be cheaper on the wallet if you're ONLY going for the show of it. CO2 purge onto the intake manifold might do some good for performance anyway :)

where can i get the CO2 purdge? so the thing that shoots out excess is called a purdge? cool. thanks for the info. haha i know its ricey, i just like the 'image' (i guess thats the word) of it comming out from the sides. will the CO2 purdge effect the engine in anway way? i am going to run n/a, or turbo if i have the funds. but yea, just dont want to inject nitrous or CO2 into the engine. so i could just get the purge of the CO2, and everything would be fine? how much by the way? thanks!

first off...if you were to run nitrous out of the sides of the wheel wells (i'm guessing that you are referring to 2 fast 2 furious) and you actually sprayed it on people as you were passing by, they would probably have to go to the hospital

nitrous is so cold that it burns...we were testing out my purge on my front winshield and it cracked...if that gives you any indication

putting a purge on your caar with no nitrous kit is like putting a "supercharged by jackson racing" sticker on your car if you don't have a supercharger...you might get props if someone just sees you purge, but if anyone asks you to open your hood, you will most likely be made fun of...being into "image" is different...this is negative "image"

also when you do purge nitrous, you'll smell it. if you "purge" and there's no smell, ppl will laugh at you cause they'll know you have a fake. hehe

yeah, if you roll up blowing CO2 out of your wheel wells, and then pop the hood showing your motor WITHOUT nitrous, you will look very bad
