Re: Draw through with nitrous

Yes, I selected this cam for higher rpm use. I figured that the nitrous would help get it out of the hole. It does have a high stall converter that really helps. I'm really just trying to figure out if more flow would increase the natural power of the engine, that way the nitrous can be used as an a...

It has forged pistons and a Schneider 280 cam 110 lobe separation. I will get more info on where I have the wot and full timing. Initial timing is at 16 degrees and I have the vacuum advance blocked.
