Nitrous Oxide Performance Handbook (Motorbooks Workshop)

Nitrous Oxide Performance Handbook (Motorbooks Workshop) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nitrous oxide's incredible horsepower-per-dollar value makes it one of the most popular ways to boost engine performance. Done improperly, though, this “cheap” thrill can come at a steep price; the information in this book might make all the difference between having a blast with nitrous and having a real blast—and leaving expensive engine parts strewn all over the road.

This handbook explains how nitrous oxide works, and how to make it work for you. The author, an expert on the subject, gives clear, step-by-step instructions for installing and using a successful nitrous system in either carbureted or fuel-injected, computerized cars—from preparing your engine for nitrous oxide applications to tuning it for maximum performance and safe operation. He also tracks some more advanced nitrous tuning techniques through test data and case studies. His book is the ultimate resource for anyone who wants to cheaply, safely, and wildly boost horsepower at the push of a button.

Book News Annotation:

Offering color photos of equipment on every page, this handbook explains how nitrous oxide works, gives step-by-step instructions for installing and using a nitrous system in either carbureted or fuel-injected cars and motorcycles with or without computerized engine management systems, and shows how to fine tune for maximum performance and safe operation on street and track. Beginning chapters cover the origins of nitrous oxide injection, and the physics, chemistry, and combustion properties of nitrous oxide. Later chapters give background and instructions on performance potential, system architecture, installation, tuning and optimization, and extreme, special, and advanced issues. There is also a chapter on the rocket science of nitrous oxide injection. The book ends with a chapter of FAQs. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
