    okay, i have heard that adding propane to your fuel system can help against detonation. So i was wondering, if i add a nitrous system AND propane, that will be a very safe way of using the laughing gas, right? anyone know where i can get a propane "fogger" system from?

    i dont think there is such thing as a propane "fogger". you could use a direct pipe going into the IM. good luck using propane without having to refill it every time you use it.

    oh, i just got the idea because i remembered a horsepower tv and they had this whole propane system for this ford truck, so i was just wondering if i could use that...but i guess not...oh yah, and i only plan on using the nitrous and propane at the tracks....not really into the street racing scene anymore...

    Ok, I have read about this before on the d-series board... Propane is approx 133 octane so one guy was running it in his fogger system instead of race fuel but I cant remember the details. I'll see if I can dig it up.

    i dont think propane can keep up with high rev engines b/c they are injected at a lower pressure than nitrous.
