You would need to do a datalog of a 3rd gear pull to redline. Then look at the datalog and do a graph with rpm and duty cycle as the only two data lines. Makes it easier to see.

I used to be on e85 too, and had a similar cold start problem. I fixed the problem and started a thread here: http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread.php?t=819475&highlight=

ID1000's are a great injector. I highly recommend them.

plug in the kpro and do a 3rd gear pull? never messed with kpro, I just let my tuner handle the job. but yeah id 1000c coming soon. how much should I sell my 600cc? I found a dry kit for 400$ that's decent right?

Every nitrous setup uses a WOT switch. In K-pro it uses the TPS signal. All I have to do is flip a switch in my center console and then once all the parameters are met the nitrous will spray. No worrying about holding down a switch or anything like that.

for the link you sent me, is everything included? so id just need id 1000s and that kit? really interested in making the leap. im running 12.5:1 compression. should that be a concern?

Should be everything you need to get started. Just follow the how to for hooking up a dry kit through k-pro and you'll be good to go. High compression motors like nitrous. It's not like when you go with boost and you have to keep the compression ratio low.

WOW, this thread blew up since ive looked at it about 5 weeks ago! mavericks view on nitrous is so insane LOL. as i stated above, i've had a 400+awhp subaru which was fun with big turbos and forged internals and all but he basically talked shit on me wanting to expand my knowledge and better understand and know a nitrous system. i love to have a huge knowledge base in my head and without knowing all about nitrous, i feel like i dont know a very crucial part of the performance car scene. i also believe its less stress on the motor as long as you dont spray constantly. my car can be stock and have turbo power with the flip of a switch. why wouldnt i want good MPG and badass power whenever needed? his point is absolutely insane. a car in full boost in my opinion has more stress than nitrous. an rsx with compression ratio of 10:1 at like 10lbs of boost would have an equal compression ratio of like 25:1. like you said, he just thinks nitrous is explosive like on fast and the furious. maybe we should explain how gas is also flammable and he fills it into his car all the time

my compression is already 12.5:1 so if I spray nitrous its gonna be over 30? lol

you should re-read my post before you attempt to pick it apart. i said a boosted engine in full boost has a HUGE compression equality. a 10:1 engine at 30psi is equal to like 17:1 compression. i never said nitrous will raise the compression. your logic saying boost will be healthier for your motor makes no sense. do you even know the EGT's on a boosted car at full boost? its huge. im willing to bet money that if i sprayed once every 3 days which is the likely amount i would spray, would be MUCH healthier for the motor than a full boost 1-4 pull with at least a decent sized turbo.

I may be lost but I never said turbo was healtier than nos. You may have confused me with someone else. Either way, I do agree with you that spraying nitrous is perfectly safer than turbo with a great tune. Still in the process of buying my nos kit. I will keep you guys updated thanks

no worries, i thought i read in one of your first posts saying forced induction was better and more reliable for the engine. let us know on your kit. i still have zero real life experience with nitrous but super eager to learn

you just said that youve had all the power adders,,,,,,then you said that you would go turbo or supercharged if you could afford them but you cant, so you dont......dont contradict yourself in the same damn paragraph man.

once again metal heating and cooling are not falsehoods or myths. engines are designed to heat and cool at certain rates depending upon the metals and alloys that they are made from. No one in their right mind will ever say nitrous is more or just as reliable as turbo or supercharger applications....does nitrous provide more bang for the buck? of course. however it comes at a price: greatly accelerated engine wear. and then you might say well im not on spray all the time. and to that i would say well then what the hell is the point of it? except for those 3-5 seconds you are spraying you are just a 190hp rsx.

i dont care about being fast in a straight line, thats why i dropped the whole nitrous idea. its retarded to think about going fast in a front wheel drive street car, if speed is what you want, why did you buy and rsx? idc how much nitrous you have you will never beat an awd car or a car with more displacement, better tires, better power to weight ratio ON NITROUS. lol. sounds more like youre the Fast and Furious fan to me. Youre the kinda guy that puts a body kit and 250 shot of nitrous on a Chevy Cavalier.

The DC5 was made for road racing plain and simple, so go ahead and tell me thats a falsehood.
so much fail in this post. :laughat:

Your first paragraph, you are making fun of the guy, for something he didn't even say...fail.

Second paragraph about engine heating and cooling, you act like nitrous is making your engine freeze, no, it's just cooling the air intake, and since you know nothing about cars, cooler air is a good thing. Also, nitrous wears down the engine just as much as turbo or SC boost, except not as often, which means it's not as hard on your engine. It really all depends on how much nitrous or boost you put through your engine, to determine how much wear it puts on the engine....so fail there again on your part.

Third paragraph, there's always a faster car out there, so you might as well knock on turbos and SC's. You bought an RSX as a track car? are you nuts? there are WAY better cars out there for a race track. Don't you know anything?....FAIL!

I honestly hope you don't ever come back in this thread (even if that means I wrote this for nothing), or on any car related thread for that matter, as you don't seem to be able to bring anything to the table.

Im also interested in going nitrous. If i were to get the wet kit 50 shot, what else do i need? Mods are cai/rh/ktuner reflash/ stock exhaust.
most, if not all kits don't come with a bottle warmer, you'll need one of those. You'll also need a purge kit. Window switch. Blowdown tube is good for safety. If there's too much pressure in your bottle, the blowdown tube will release the pressure under your car. There are other little safely gadgets you can get, but aren't necessary. If you go to a reputable shop, they can fill you in on what you need. if you plan on installing yourself, i'd do a lot more research on what you could use for safety purposes. But what I mentioned is the majority of it. You'll spend a good 1600-2000 dollars for a solid nitrous setup. If you don't have any hook-ups.
