Composite can be tackled by drilling the nitrous hole, rough it up around the hole with 80 grit sandpaper. Buy the bungs that are aluminum and JB Weld or epoxy the heck out of them. There shouldn't be that much pressure to blow out the bungs. That is if not Turbo charging. If normally aspirated I know they'll hold. Something funny. We had a Top Sportsman race in Bowling Green Ky. and one of the crew lost a bolt near the starter. On start up, it broke the housing near the flywheel, eliminating our semi final run. I grabbed a kit of epoxy and slapped the starter back on glued with epoxy. Hell it only had to start once right? We took home 5 grand that day for the win.

I guess I would have an Aluminum plate made and run a spray bar. Think manifold/head flange. That's what I was thinking of doing on the FRIM ... I didn't want to drill holes in it ... there is lots of room on the bottom side though (sneaky Pete).

A spray plate??? Sounds doable. Find a bud that can run a CNC machine and have him cut it out, drill the spray holes, and slip it in his lunch box. Nitrous Oxide under controllable situations can be a life changer. And to think dentist waste all that giggle gas on patients.

zetec base?


And just to further how well my combo works, it's still running fairly strong. Rev to 8-8,500 daily a few times. Still holding together but finally showing some age, compression's down a bit.
Still on E-85 and not one issue.
Bottom end has nearing 220,000 miles.
Still my daily driver.
