Unless you are VERY good at tuning a nitro motor I would not use one.
there is a carb plate that comes with the supercharger and you have to drill a hole through it to get air to the carb.
If you drill to large of a hole it will force to much air into the carb and you will never get it rich enough.

You need to make sure your needle settings are correct or it will only destroy your motor.

A guy I used to work with got one for his savage, talk about a pain to tune.
Without it the motor was easy to tune, with it it was a nightmare.

Better off just buying a better engine. On forced air induction on the engines we run does not work well as the intake and exhaust ports are open at the same time so all you are doing is forcing the air fuel mixture right out the exhaust. Big waste of fuel! All so do a BBB search on the company that makes them!

NOS is not worth it either as the set up has no way to add fuel at the same time it shout the NOS like on a 1 to 1 vehicle. With to much NOS with out the extra fuel you have a bigger chance on frying and engine. Like I said better off getting a better engine.

The NOS system actually adds tons of power, but it will destroy your engine very fast. A friend of mine had a Ofna Blazer with a Picco 27 with nitrous, and holy shit was it fast, but the engine only lasted for one gallon of fuel. I would not recommend using it unless you have a lot of money to burn.

It will destroy the engine, as there is no add fuel when on the bottle. Like I said on 1 to 1 vehicles when you hit the juice it not only shoots the NOS in all so shoot extra fuel in to keep from running to lean. You are much better off just getting a better engine.

Can you send me the money instead of throwing it away on a useless and possibly harmful gadget.

Superchargers are a WOM (Waste of Money)
