RE: C230 nitrious? I need help!


In regards to the nozzles;

Jet size..Pounds per hour...Est HP

14 ........ 28.8 .......... 10
16 ........ 36 ............ 12.5
18 ........ 50.4 .......... 17.5
20 ........ 22.5 .......... 22.5
22 ........ 79.2 .......... 27.5
24 ........ 93.6 .......... 32.5
26 ........ 86.4 .......... 30
28 ........ 108 ........... 37.5
31 ........ 129.6 ......... 45
33 ........ 136.8 ......... 47.5
35 ........ 151.2 ......... 52.5
38 ........ 172.8 ......... 60
41 ........ 208.8 ......... 72.5
46 ........ 273.6 ......... 95
52 ........ 331.2 ......... 115
57 ........ 410.4 ......... 142.5
62 ........ 489.6 ......... 170
70 ........ 547.2 ......... 190
73 ........ 597.6 ......... 207.5
78 ........ 676.8 ......... 235
82 ........ 720 ........... 250
88 ........ 763.2 ......... 265

Just my opinion but a "direct port system" would be a better choice,yet a PITA to install.Pooling from a wet system can be disastrous [xx(]

Faster also means you need bigger brakes and better suspension.
Sell yours and buy a C36, C43, or a C55. Problem solved.

Thanks!

I would never put a nitrous system on an engine with 179k miles.
Also I agree with the info about the potential disasters with a wet system.

Sorry, but I'm chiming in with the other folks.

You asked what you're getting yourself into? In a nutshell, you're getting yourself into a bunch of problems which will include torpedo-ing the engine if you don't first wrap it around a tree because you can't stop it.

If you're that unhappy with it, sell it and get something that will make you happy (or something you can more safely mod).[;)]
