Having a magazine project vehicle is good (if slow-paced) fun, we’re not going to lie. After a while though, you get tired of bolting on other people’s parts, and start to look to make your own waves. In a round about way, this is how our wireless nitrous system came to be. Nitrous is probably one of the single easiest ways to add power to a diesel engine and can add a good 50- 80 hp even on stock trucks. On trucks that have the fuel turned up it can add even more, and on full tilt race vehicles it can add up to 1,000 hp! We weren’t looking for extreme though, we were looking for something different.
Hiding nitrous has been another fun way to mess with your opponents on either the dyno or the dragstrip. In tractor pulling it’s a no-no, but elsewhere it seems to be all in good fun. One of our old rides had a bottle mounted under the bed, and the nitrous lines snaked around under the intake tube. Since diesel engines operate on such a wide air/fuel ratio range, oftentimes you can just inject nitrous straight into the airbox without hurting anything.
