To Nos or not to Nos

i have an 1993 Lincoln mark 8 and was thinking to hooking some up N2O.

the engine is all stock but my procharger(4.5 pounds) and has 101,000 miles what would i need to do to hook nos up

and i am kinda new to nos so let me know all my options

would it be worth it?

could the engine handle it?


thanks

Not 100% sure but I believe that the engine will be a bit week for that shot

There's no better excuse for a built engine than blowing up the last one.


RTLB, RSTB, FSTB, LECB and FSSB, MAC intake, black interior and new shoes... Soon to come: SVO blower,, AIS, SS kooks headers, SS 2.5" dual exhaust w/ x-pipes and borlas, koni shocks, 1.6" vogland drop, poly (almost)everything, 1 3/8 F&R swaybars, rebuilt suspension... Parts collection nearing completion, contemplating the "Do" phase... More like "Pay someone else to do" phase... I blame the slow results on deployments and pre-deployment training... Kill
*currently planning some chassis work*

Then what's the good excuse for blowing up a perfectly good engine?

Needs more stall.

get it on a dyno and start with a 50hp dry shot.
depending on if u have a xcal tune or a flip chip the tuner can work with you and you can go up in increments of 25 untill you hit the sweet spot.i wuoldnt expect more than a 100-125 shot
nitrous can help a supercharged engine by lowering the intake air temp

Why isn't there a thread just for famous quotes? This one is another gem.

@ OP: When does your ProCharger start making appreciable boost?

That link/post makes sense. Shouldn't be playing so hard with the cast pistons anyway, right?

I beg to differ

I ran a 125 shot on my car for years and years but not with a SC. Yes, eventually they can't handle it. At just over 100K mile on your car and if its in good condition, I wouldn't be too afraid. That kind of mileage and its not even broken in yet if its been taken care of and well maintained.

You are running the SC on the car now correct. Any problems with it thus far?

I'd start with a dry kit 50 shot and likely keep it there. You could stretch it to a 75 but that would be as far as I'd ever push it and not all the time at that. Get it tuned with the juice on it also and see how it likes it and make sure things are good on the tune. Make sure the fuel pump has been upgraded. You certainly don't want it going lean.

As far as the pistons, yeah they aren't the best. I do believe I've read someplace that the 93's 4V motors had a better piston (Thicker) than some of the later years but don't quote me on that. Nick McKinney may be able to provide more insight there.

Like anything else, you beat the piss out of it all the time its not going to last at all. Just the way it is. If you can live with that and be conservative to a point it may last a long time. If not then be prepared at some point to put a forged bottom in the car and be ready to roll.

Hope this helps you out. Good luck with your project and keep us posted.

Just my experience and .02 cents!

the car runs fine with the procharger, but some times when it warms up it smells like you dump gas everywhere, but i think i have a leak. other then that it runs like a champ..

i just thought about it i relay stayed away from NOS(because of the stories), but my buddy just hook it up in his car, and thought i see my pro and cons but it. but i think my engine is good enough right now

thanks you guys helped and iam selling an spare engine from an 1994 Lincoln mark 8 have everything but the block 60,000 miles on them, will post this in the for sales too with more info

Ah, so the motor must be junk if it can't handle the combination of boost and nitrous.

Didnt read the entire thread but first,its N2O or nitrous,not NOS that is a brand,sorry that always reminded me of F&F but have you ever thought of adding an intercooler and then the N20 spray bar,I know NX makes one,would greatly lower IAT temps

i only wish we would blow up our motor on nitrous, we keep poping it without the spray. id really like to see what the car will do when we finally get the 300 shot into it.
