Default Who runs nitrous?

Just curious to be honest.

I'm piecing together a kit for my ranger with a few hard plumbed hidden bottles and an external fill port. I think my engine should be installed in a month or so.

What gains are you guys seeing on your turbo applications?
Any caveats?

I ran Nitrous on a turbo engine, just not a 2.3L. A little bit went a long way. In a situation like this, I'd figure stainless steel exhaust valves are a must.

I ended removing it after a few runs. The turbo on it's own was able to make more power than the internals could handle.

My first turbo Ranger had a stock 160k mile motor I sprayed a wet 75 shot on for two years. Loved it. Truck was a super star street racer around here for a while.

I used a basic efi wet kit from Edlebrock with a NOS Shark nozzle jetted for a 75 shot.

Truck ran 13.oo at 103mph on 22 psi and with the spray it ran 12.40s at 111mph lifting about 1000ft out from poppin the headgasket the only time I sprayed it at the track...the seat of the pants difference was amazing.

here is my "kit" lol

I used a old Merkur seat heater element stitched to a thick bath towel I wrapped around the bottle to keep it warm and then threw my old welding jacket over it to hide it....reeled em in everytime!

Need to keep your Air Conditioning or dont want to modify your heater box on a 1983-2001 Ranger check here for all the details!

It's the one and only way to turbocharge your Ranger and keep your factory A/C without modifying the heater/AC box and keeping the durability of a factory Ford E6(1986) turbocharger manifold.

I knew that would bring you from under the welding hood!

I'm pretty sure I'll be selling the N2O kits with this setup.

Now...if I could just get you down here to do my suspension
