u dont want high compression for n20. thats a bad thing. its just like boost. it loves the low compression.

What are you talking about? the higher the compression the more power you make but with more risk of detonation, same thing with turbo. lower compression is for reliability, you can boost on high compression but it puts a lot more stress on internals. and I'm creating @!#$ for power with my low compression internals, which is why in putting an HO head on my car to bump up the compression, I was thinking of milling my 2.4 head but the pistons would have clipped valves, and I'm not ripping my motor apart again to put new internals in. <br>

no its not, because nitrous doen't like low compression at all. <br>

this is not here as a pissing match --- post whores



all he is saying is that it is much safer (better) to run nitrous on a low compression engine

for power purposes of course a high compression engine with nitrous will be more powerful but much more dangerous --

in most cases you can use a bigger shot on a lower compression engine safer


but really who gives a $hit arguments are for the j body versus and the newbie forums

azenis sports 215/45/16


why the heck would you get 45 series on 16's when they make stock size 205/55/16 for us!?!?!?

yes they are BARELY wider but you will actually lose traction from having no sidewall.

not true there is plenty of side wall and traction for that matter

I know it is dark but those are the best pics i could find with close ups of the tires

45 series is what i use on my 17's... yes you have SOME sidewall but stock size is better.

I have used BOTH size azenis on the same 16" wheels and the stock 205/55's gripped better by far.

Also another local guy did the same thing. He saw that the 55 series tires only came in 205 so he went for the 215/45 and realized it didnt do quite as well.

Im sure they still work better than stockers for sure. I'm just saying you might as well get 205/55/16's once those need to be replaced.

plus 45 series on 16's = ugly wheel gap <br>

might try those next but I do have an extra two 215/45/16 on my garage for when the fronts go --- I want to get some ssr comps ---- I have a sub and an amp already --


I really like the GC's and koni's and what wheel gap i can go as low as I want


<br>


Re: Just got my nitrous installed
Saturday, October 09, 2004 11:50 AM
front and rear wheel gap also... you cant change that by lowering it.

anyways how well do they ride? (sorry to change the subject)

any issues with them bottoming out on themselves? Bouncy?


I want SSR comps also... but im not willing to pay that much... im cheap <br>

koni's are nice --- ride is stiff but not like riding on blown shocks --- the car is pretty solid not any bosy roll --- i like them alot but the roads here are fairly smooth
