Nitrous or turbo ?

I use my bike for drag ( 1/4 mile ) and street racing . My motor just need to be repair and like to try the velocity turbo kit . My bike was set with a 50hp shot of nitrous and was great . I like to know your opinion if i should stay with my nitrous kit or should move to turbo . Thanks

turbo doesnt need refil, and it's easier on the motor, the downside is the price though

buy a well developed kit, and a two stage boost controller. listen to your tuner regarding safe boost pressures on available fuels. set your first stage on 5-6psi (around 200bhp) which will keep it manageable on the street and for launching. and will look after your clutch. a good kit will give about 10bhp per psi boost. set the second stage to your tuners recommendation regarding engine spec and fuel you are running at that time. have the second stage working off a button and you still get your nitrous "kick" whenever you need it, but it never runs out! over 250bhp you need to look at a lockup or slider clutch. under should be fine with a quality clutch and strong springs. regular oil/filter changes and a good quality oil is a necessity!

someone who knows.

It sounds bad azz too

There are three rules I live my life by:
1. No matter where you are or what you are doing always look cool.
2. Don't be a pussy
3. When in doubt refer to rule number 1

nitrous is easier on the wallet but boost is the way to go if you got the money to spend.
