Taking A High-Rev 347 To The Outer Limits With Electronically Controlled Dry Nitrous From AFM And NOS
|On the Dyno|
|Baseline||150hp Nitrous||250hp Nitrous|
It's hard to argue with the results of nitrous. Popping in the 150hp pills added 136.63 hp and 141.21 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, while stepping up to the 250hp shot added another 78.62 hp and 89.15 lb-ft to the peaks. That's a total of 215.25 hp and 230.36 lb-ft added to the peak output of Rick's already impressive 347. Of course, Rick cautions that it's the average increases-not the peaks-that really get the car down the track. Those gains are obvious in the graphs we're presenting. Each nitrous pull picks the entire curve up a significant notch. Rick has been tempted to pop in the 350hp jets, but he's fearful his Sportsman block and lightweight internals might not be up to the task of 700-plus-horsepower at the wheels. Just remember, you can't put one of these systems on a stock engine and expect to hit it with a 350 shot and have it live.
