Well after months of fiddling and farting about with an engine noise that proved too be no more than a noisey pcv valve Confused i finally finished the nitrous install and filled the bottle Smile took it for a short run to try it and even with a 50 bhp shot it goes well and doesn't go lean, thanks too perry for his recommendations on jetting, roll on the weekend at shakey Laughing john

Eventually got on the track at about 2 friday afternoon, run it NA just too see if there were any changes too the car and she came in right down to 14.498 where i was in the summer. So i opened the bottle and gave it a squirt, first as it went into third and then just as it got into second, giving me a so close 14.066 Shocked i went back to our patch and put the kettle on! and got ready too warm the bottle, i also upped the jetting to give me a 75bhp shot with the jets perry had suggested, bottle up too 950 psi i got readdy too race, first try i missed the lights and went no faster ... Laughing but the next one i got a 0.490 and did a 13.761 ! well chuffed and packed in for the following day and a better track, but unfortunatley the weather was wet and sunday's a day off for me so i can get ready too tow the teardrop home Shocked
