Have you ever considered using propane instead of nitrous? Pros and cons.

Yes...propane injection is a reality. It works pretty much like the same principle as nitrous but instead of oxygen as an accelerant, you have fuel in a gasous state. One of my collegues is testing a system on a 240 right now.

That's a good one. I like your sense of humor man! I like grilling hondas too!

Propane gas is injected or sprayed into the front mount like the recently marketed NX N'ercooler system.

How is propane good as a intercooler? If you shooting in gas propane it doesn't change states. Right b4 it a liquid turn into a gas ti consumes lots of energy, isn't that the theory behind nitrous & water/alcohol injection?

I think we're saying the same thing. The propane gas is introduced into the intercooler by surface mounting a device or ring directly to or in front of the intercooler. This 'ring' has spray nozzles which inject the propane gas into the intercooler. I believe your question concerning injection type theory is correct.

he's talking about instead of using one of these...........


it attches to the intercooler to further reduce the temperature of the air.
:) Thanks.

Black as much money as you have spent on your altima I wouldn't be experimenting with an unorthodox use of something like propane in your motor. Stick with n20 in your intercooler I mean who would be there to tune something like "propane induction" not alot of people right. I say n20 is the way to go with your turbo.

Hey black I haven't read all the links but it looks like the propane is more a replacement for water injection or race fuel. In test run that the DSM made it seemed that all it did was make his car run cooler inturn letting him turn up the boost and running faster. I'll read some more but that first DSM link really isn't impressing me and doesn't hardly compare to the power gains of n20
