Ok here is the deal... You can hit the nitrous at 2500 rpm's in a mustang or corvette but, in a celica it just bogs down because you are shooting to much fuel into the system at once...
You cannot buy a dry system for a Celica... Try it... Call Zex or NOS and see for yoruself... I did...
And if you ever buy nos and hold the button down until its empty make sure you call a tow truck...
ok, i was just making sure that you couldn't use a dry system with the celica...didnt say you could.
and also i definately didnt say you could use the whole bottle...as stated above 15 seconds or less is the recommended type.
and since obviously you have some experience with nitrous (i do not) why would the celica bog down? wouldn't more fuel + more oxygen equal more power? i guess you said no..but i was just wondering as to why this is.
in any case...would it still be faster than stock times even if you started at 2500 rpms? if not (or even if yes) what rpm do you suggest laying on the button in the celica gts?
1)try to be specific and factual when it comes to certain things.you can squeeze and use all the nitrous from the bottle!it depends on what size bottle you are using or maybe you have only seen 10 lbs.
2)bogging down usually happen when the nitrous is not jetted properly,to much fuel,blocked nitrous solenoid/line.
it wont happen that easily if it was the other way around(to much nitro)
3)it can bog at low rpm because you are asking the Intake
runners and head to injest a massive amt of "material"at an rpm where the head cannot possible flow that amt of air/fuel mixture!
4)usually if its jetted right and you squeeze at say 2500 the revs would shoot up,some people do that on cars to get the "out the hole" advantage,very little wheel spin and quick take off.but as i said earlier up the torque load is ridiculous at that rpm and can stress internals.this is how a lot of people lose a motor,not by detonation blowing a hole in the piston or burning rings,melting plugs,but by breaking con rods,spining bearings,this is the "stealth mode"that nitrous kills motors! everyone is more accustomed to the explosion/smoke associated with the "more active detonation"
5)i think for 1/4 mile time its best if you launch the car normal very little wheel spin and when you hook hit the button.hold until just before redline,release,shift,button again,through all the gears until the end of the track.
6)advanced racers do hold the button from begining to end while shifting! with their foot planted to the floor!
7)if anything needs to be clarified ask!,an in detail discussion of nitrous and its usage plus tips and tricks can fill a lot of books and can not be covered in a few sentenses!
