Turbo guys- w2 exhaust ports, what can I use for headers? Guessing flipped magnum manifolds as a cheap option won't work and I really don't want to cut up my tti's

Officially need to move away from nitrous...it ranges from 10-16$ per pound here, just not a realistic power adder anymore, even though it's my favourite one.

I've seen $6 to $8 a pound here, when you can find it. The supply is getting better, but not where it was. My supplier is only giving mother bottles to their big dealers...since I only get one at a time for my own use, I won't be able to get one until the supply gets closer to normal again.

mshred,
You might want to ask on the turbo forums as there seems to be more action over there on turbo stuff.

Yea its outta hand here...Nitrous is by far my favourite power adder, but now that full time adulting has become my life I cant justify spending almost $400 every time I need to fill up my 3 10lb bottles. Would rather put that money towards more permanent power that I only have to pay for once!

Not as bad as I expected! Before the shortage, I was paying right at $190 for a 73 lb bottle. No idea what it'll cost me now.

Yea man, it's brutal...makes the thought of staying nitrous pretty hard to follow through with.


I'm toying with different avenues for next year...motor is coming out whether I refresh it and keep it or change directions. Now just have to make up my mind about what I want and works for me, meaning what can I ACTUALLY afford lol

They use large amounts of nitrous for MRI machines. They add sulfur to the gas so that people won't inhale it. Not sure what it would do to high compression WOT pass.

Fought an issue most of the summer with the car just not pulling over 7000 rpm. Still ran in the 4's five weekends in a row. I started trying new stuff and broke my streak but did tie the old best then ran a new best. All my friends were telling me it's breaking up at 300 foot. But I just was not looking in the right spot. I found it last night. I know it's fixd now 😎

My season is winding down with just a few weeks left and bad weather today.😕 I know it's going to fly now . I just need some good conditions.

I ran my car against the Memphis Street Outlaws a few weeks back. Hope it makes it on the new show. I am not a street racer but got asked to go so I went. JJ daBoss was top notch, it was for the filming of the 8th episode of his new show. I ran his wife in his Ziptie Nova.

I been running a lot, I have some more vids but with photobucket not working I'll just post some vids to youtube. Watch them if you want.

We were not allowed to vid runs. They had it covered from a few angles. She won chase is a race. I had two mics on me and several cameras on the car. She crashed against me.

Was a great experience. Once in a lifetime kind of thing.

Yeah, that's what all turbo rookies believe. Those cars eat parts too, including the turbos.
