The 100 jets are a success. The performance of the Musty is much more satisfying and the climate keeps the nitrous and fuel flow greater than standard, meaning I should be making even more power on the 100 jets.

The Maxy ramps up to over a period of 0.5 seconds and it isn't enough to get any traction in 2nd (stock rear gears) until time to change to the next gear. I also am concerned about the stock clutch, so this will be the max level for the time being. I'll experiment with the Maxy settings to maintain traction on the street.

This car is buku fun now.

No tunes, no need for expensive fuel mods.

Win, win, win!!!

Ordered some jets to max out the system, which is at the perfect level for the stock engine. Still, the car needs tires and suspension work to take advantage of any extra power being made. The stock clutch works well at the 100 bhp level, it's unknown where the limit is because of its age. Engine should be making north of 400 lb ft to the ground around 3k rpm, a I welcome that on the stock rear end ratio.

I'm not willing to spend too much on this car besides the basic maintenance, but it will be involved in some kind of racing eventually: some fun strip events and auto-x.

Installed a fresh cylinder and topped off the propane as well. I can get about 20 lbs of nitrous safely to one 11lb cyl of propane (about 5.5 lbs filled). But best to have good habits about topping the fuel off.

I haven't hit it again, mainly because of the poor condition of the tyres. That'll come sometime soon.

I also found that my previous cylinder valve was leaking nitrous very slowly as it would lose some weight over a couple of days without any use. I managed to xfer the remaining liquid out and replaced the valve with a WoN valve. The generic one is still good, the issue was that it wasn't torqued to the bottle and a minor effort was needed to unseat it from the cylinder. Again, its best to ditch the junk and go with the best and safest valves.

I don't wanna go too long without some kind of post, but the rainy season is here. Of course, that means that spirited driving is off the menu currently. I still need new shoes on the musty, but overall, the 100 hp boost definitely gives it a fun factor of 10!

My goals are pretty much reached on this car. The 100 hit is very balanced between performance, reliability, and consumption. When I get around to installing a second cylinder and supply pipe, I'll juice it up a tad more to 125. The second cyl will decrease the need for having to hot swap bottles on a spirited drive.

After being a WoN-head for what now is a few years, I can't say enough good things about these products and the WoN team.

For those interested, I post on instagram from time to time under the user 'doctornos'

I find it super simple to post what I'm up to on that.

good job pity about the weather, just out of curiosity how much do you pay for nitrous in your neck of the woods?

I pay about $4 per pound ~ £3. Considering the drought that occurred for the past year and a half, I thought the prices would be double that. I think UK prices are higher currently?
