NOS!

Apparently there is a NOS kit available for 2nd gen R/Ts. $1600 Canadian.

Just thought you should know.

I know NOS will probably kill your car, I was just leeting people know that it's available.

I found this NOS kit at a local tint shop that also sells performance accessories, he looked up the R/T in the computer and it didn't come up with much except for K&N and NOS.

That all depends. It depends on how big of a boost you have. If you put in a system to give you a progressive boost (is that the correct termonolgy?), than the car may survive.

exactly, I have used NOS in the past, if done wrong (big boost shot, low rpm full shot hits, etc) it will kill your motor but if done right you can experience a nice power boost with very little problems.

the problem with NOS is that every idiot in the world is tempted by the low price, half-ass installs the kit, hits a 150HP shot at 1500 rpm and wonders why his tranny blew up

Considering the lack of any aftermarket performance parts for the R/T, looks like NOS would be one of the bigger boosts you can get?

I was holding out hope for some type of intercooled twin turbo setup in, like, 2 years when I could afford one (save them pennies!) However, it looks like from a practicality standpoint that nothing short of moving the engine to the trunk to get more room would allow for a turbo or supercharger setup.

Does this seem to be the general consensus?

I'm a car newbie so I wouldn't be doing any of the work myself. I'd take it to the dealer or some garage and say, "here, do this to it."

The Fast and The Furious..sheehs...no comment...

You don't need two turbos on a V6 car. Take a look at the turbo buicks for example, single turbo on a V6 engine.

I believe we need twin tubos because of the mechanics involved. I dont remember who, but someone posted about that there would be no room to do a single, and that it wouldnt work because of how our engine is set up... i dont remember details, but i remember him making sense. I dont know anything about turbos or superchargers, but it sounded right.

One day I was over at my buddys place and the guy across the street is a mechanic, he wanted to install NOS on the car for a project to do, But I do not think it will do me any good, cause no matter if its progressive boost or anything I will use more of it that gas.

Yeah, install NOS and watch your Ultradrive tranny fly out from underneath your vehicle. I don't know if these tranny's can handle that type of power. NOS is cool but I am a supercharger dude for full time power and efficiency. Later guys!

So, do you guys recommend NOS on your Trep or not? Would you do it if you had the means?

I would do it and it is on my future mods list.

Just don't go putting on a wet system with a 100hp shot!
