Total Hp With Nitrous?
Tuesday, July 01, 2008 12:21 PM
Right so I just purchased a new Zex kit for my car its the 55-75 shot kit. I also bought the racers tuning kit to go with it. I realise that these numbers may not necessarily mean that I gain the same amount at the wheels, in fact im almost certain thats not the case. But anyways I am wondering how much approx HP you guys think ill be pushing with the I/H/E lightweight crank pulley and a 75 shot which is what ill try at the track.

click link

should give you a good idea you just have to fill in the figures that go along with your application, also as far as HP i believe they just use a general percentage friction loss through the drive train. Of course every single car is going to be different because there are too many factors to consider but it should give you a good idea.

Its purge kit, bottle warmer, blow down tube, and a guage.

Yeah thanks for link, it seems to be pretty accurate because when I input the Nitrous Jet size its within like 0.001" of the Fuel jet size supplied so im thinking its a good guess. Says with the 75 shot I should expect about 61 hp at wheels which aint too shabby. If I were bone stock that would be approx 205 hp because i think we run about 145hp stock with the 2.2 eco. So with the upgrades I have is it reaching to claim around 220 hp with that 75 shot?

That's the Nitrous Express GEN-X Accessory Package which has nothing to do with tuning.

I'd say to expect around 190whp with a 75 shot but nitrous is hard to gauge.

So I stand corrected, I still don't know why they call it the "tuning kit".

The 2.2 Eco is not 145 hp stock for one and for two i would agree with the above that your more looking at 180-190 hp with the 75 shot

i thought the 2.2 eco was either 140 or 145 hp stock? not to the wheels obviously.. but that's what they rate it at ..

No, the 2.2 Eco is rated at 140hp @ the crank and the 2.4 is 150@crank,that is the ratings per GM ,but whatever

Yeah my bad I thought the 140-145 was wheel..lol as if . but it still seems to be quite low ball for 180.. I mean I understand a lot of hp is lost on its way to the wheels but like OhForKav said he dynoed 137 with just exhaust and if the 75 shot pushes approx 61 hp to the wheels and I have a few more upgrades then he did when he dynoed..put 2 and 2 together id say closer to 2 bills..but hey enough talk there is only way to find out right.
