NOS in automatic cars

Just curious, can automatic cars have NOS in them as well? If so would it work as good as it would in a manual transmission car? Would it produce as much HP ? Any feed back would be helpful

Re: NOS in automatic cars

If I where you I would save the money for a new tranny instead of a Nos(nitrous of your choice) kit....thats like running without shoes oon a gravel road..or somethin..Im just sayin...if you have an automatic and your engine isnt in the state to where you KNOW it can hanle that 15-75% shot then you really shouldnt have it in the first place..Like I said..get a new tranny work with a manual..and move on from there..

I've heard of it being done.

I don't think there's anything wrong with having nitrous on an automatic. Seems like it'd be easier to use than on a manual. Put the right pedal all the way down, hit the NOS button, and hang on.

ya first if i had the money to convert i would...not to mention the drivers seat is on the right hand side of the car and you would have to shift with your left hand. i mean you'd get used to it but for a 17 year old driver i'll stick with my automatic till i feel comfortable enough to try shifting gears with my left hand

If a person's considering putting NOS in a car, then that says one of two things: either the car will be used for drag racing, or it's being put in there for the poseur factor.

In either case, a manual transmission would be a detriment.

Re: NOS in automatic cars

Honestly, running nitrus in an automatic car is easier than in a manual ... You don't run the risk of redlining out when you are not fully thru your gears, or causing serious damage to your engine by over extending the gears ... But, you should look into having your engine gone over ... And, depending on what brand of nitrus, what shot, how it will be delievered, etc. you might, honestly, want to consider CryO2 instead ... It is run much like nitrus, not quite as much of a boost, but is not detremental to your engine, either. And, can be used with naturally asperated engines, as well as turbo/supercharged engines ...

Umm coz automatics can be made much faster than manuals with a simple shift kit buddy. Do you really think a human can shift faster than a machine??? Simple answer is NO. besides, logic would tell you that Nos on an auto would be much easier to control and use since all you gotta do is hit that button, grab the wheel and floor it. Believe me, many a time have a seen manuals running small 30hp shots of Nos and yet they blow the engine coz the owner can't keep up his shifts with the Nos and redline.

Thanks for the info darque racer and zwrangler. I will have my technician thoroughly look through my engine and see if it can handle some mild nitrous shots, i will keep your idea in mind draque, about the CryO2, I have a slight idea on what it is but if any one can explain to me what it is and how similar it is to NOS that'd be great. thanks for the help guys

ok first skyline canada..Im 17..actually just turnned 17 Nov. so age is no excuse for not being able to shift..practice is practice..

and for you,Zwrangler..wtf are you talking about? No sure a mechine is more consistant and quiker then a person..WITH THE SHIFT KIT...how much would this kit be exactly..and now..lets talk about how you "saw" people blow their engines with a 30 shot..I; havta call you a bullshitter enless..they couldnt drive to save their life..and Im hoping they arent hitting that Nitrous at lets say 2-3 gear..lol...wtf you dont use that shot until later in the race/time atack...w/e..you should be perfectly fine with a manual with nitrous shoot its ALOT LESS stress on the tranny aswell..seeing how like you said floor it and hold on,while the driver does no work what so ever..the tranny is being worked harder then a manual..cause unlike a manual it has to keep up with the increased boost...ok buddy?

My my such hostility and anger. First off, you can buy a B&M shift plus kit for $39.90, hardly a blow to the budget and it improves the performance of the automatic tranny. Transgo also make a kit, check out their site
http://www.drivetrain.com/transgoshiftkits.html

I believe the Transgo kit goes for around $99.95, once again hardly a stress on the wallet.

But as for the engine being blown with a 30 shot of nos believe me I shit you not. telling big fat lies is not my style and i just won't do it. A friend of mine works in a leading performance mechanic workshop and they installed a 30hp shot of Nos in a Mitsubishi Mirage (i think they're called Colts or 2dr hatchback lancer in the U.S.) and that engine blew the first time they took it around the block with the owner. They had to put in a whole new engine block and I'm not really sure if the owner kept the Nos or not. This is what I know and what I saw. Please don't resort to personal attacks because thats just not necessary and I cannot fight back against a 17 year old seeing as how i am 22 years of age. so please, calm down and read up a little on the topic before getting riled up and typing things that you may not be sure are right or wrong.
