Lightbulb Dual Boost Bottles?

I know many people have different thoughts about using even one boost bottle cause they say they dont do anything, but I like em and was thinking of experimenting with using 2 instead of one. Im not sure if it would make any effect at all but its worth a try, what do you guys think?

I believe this makes low end more responsive... no idea how two will works better... it's up to yourself to experiment...

NOS would be cool but it would also blow out your block in the long run. But as for the 2 boost bottles, Im gonna give it a shot on my Revo (2.5 Engine). I was planning on upgrading to an OS for summer anyways. Whats the worst that could happen...Ill just be faster off the line.

Boost bottles - do they increase power? Well, people report improved bottom end. Some engine manufacturers used to have integral boost bottles built into the back plate, with a nipple just under the carb intake to connect it with tube (to the back plate).

The fact that most of the recent winning engines don't use this system means that boost bottles probably don't offer any real advantage.

Having used both types, I'd say it's much more important to get the engine prep, running-in, fuel, mixtures, airflow, tuned pipe, manifold, gearing, clutch and head clearances sorted to achieve best power output.
