Nitrous doesn't burn- - - - -it's an oxidizer. When it encounters the heat of the combustion chamber it breaks down and releases oxygen into the mix. Use plenty of NOx, but add enough fuel that it gets burned- - - -not the pistons and valves. Hot oxygen is like a sailor on shore leave- - - -it's going to combine with something RIGHT NOW!

CH3No2

Don't know what that is, but it's not an alcohol.
All of them are related, and have very similar molecules:
Methanol CH3OH, ethanol C2H5OH, isopropyl C3H7OH, butyl C4H9OH, etc.

If this guy can make a straight 6 Thriftmaster do this, then I would think you can.

NAPCO burnout

Granted those are skinny tires, but geez.

Sorry about the post I am brand new. Lets start again. Nitrous with gas will burn straight across the piston. Methanol and CH3No2 that is nitromethane will burn straight across the piston. The piston needs to be pushed down the cylinder straight not like the gas fired motor that pinpoints the piston.

I can explain it to you but I can't help you understand it.

I have ran both nitrous and nitromethane. I still have the old Marvin Miller system back in the 60's. I build my own jets for nitrous. I also have a set of Hilborns and my hydrometer.

I built a 292, crower stage 3 hydraulic 262/480/490lift, bigger valves 1.94/1.60, edelbrock 500, harland sharp rockers, lumps, ported/polished, mallory distributor, I used LP pistons shaved the block&head for a true 9:5/1 comp ratio, took the head to 70cc's, langdon exhaust flanges and clifford intake, balanced all, with a saginaw 4 spd and posi rear 3:23 gear, let me tell you that motor "GOES" i have it in my 1953 chevy 3100, now mind you I could of built a super small block for what I have into it, but everybody has small blocks, you have to pay to be different!!forget the virtual just build it!!

And forget the nitrous. Yes it makes hp and torque, but only till the bottle runs out, which is about 5 or 6 passes at the dragstrip. Nitrous is for dyno numbers and race cars!
