Well that engine had 160k, like 60-80k with constant NOS abuse. That is EXTREME and it's AWESOME that it lasted that long. That's pretty darn good if you ask me

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">what happened.</font>
That's what happens when your piston cracks while squeezing a 100HP shot of NOS on the freeway!
The motor belongs to SoCal-SERCA LM Frank Orozco. Fortunately he had purchased a JDM Primera motor a few months before this happened so his downtime was very short.

BTW,that motor at a recent Dyno Day put down 247HP with the bottle!

kinda scares me. I might be getting my car dynoed on Sat, and have not used the NOS in a few months, and I am not even using the JWT kit. gulp

Did the piston crack or the rod bod fail?? That hole looks just like the rod bolt failures a few of us road racers have seen!! Minie did that in the last turn at Roebling Road. Just as a note it was a completly stock motor!

All of the above. If you look at all the pictures on his page, you can see in the oil pan what is left of piston #1. A+ job in my book.

it won't if you run it correctly, and have good milege on the engine. I believe he had about 180k on his, and most of the engine life was with the NOS installed on the car. see a honda engine do that, or better yet, any engine.

Hehe, never heard the term "go nitrous" before. "Go turbo" works, but go nitrous?
LOL

My three reasons:

1. It's illegal
2. It's dangerous
3. It scares me


I know that know one will find out but if you get pulled over and have a knowledgable officer make you pop your trunk and he sees the blue bottle there, who knows what will happen.

Whoops, sorry I hope that doesn't happen when I turn to the bottle. Does that work? I'd love to GO TURBO
but don't have the cash. The JWT 50 shot is pretty safe from what I've heard, plus my car only has 40k on it.

I have. I can also remember when we called NOS cars "Babies".
