I am looking to build a NOS Car CAD prototype, where we can design a chip that can help release the NOS into the fuel injection system. I am doing this project primarily to learn programming and NOS injection.
Current Task in Progress
- Finding Teammates
- Figuring out schematic layout of the project and project parts
- I want to design a diagram that helps me understand the process and flow of the project.
Where I Need the Most Help
I want to design a diagram that helps me understand the process and flow of the project. This is where I need the most help on this Project – because it enables me and our team push forward with the next steps, tasks, and milestones of the Project.
Why I’m Passionate About This Project
I want to learn NOS and Programming. 😃
Supporting Material & Info
The power output of any engine is limited by the amount of oxygen it can ingest. That’s why most go-faster solutions—larger displacement, higher rpm, forced induction—focus on pumping more air. But you can achieve the same result by adding a substance that contains oxygen. The most common of these is nitrous oxide, or N2O, which is 33 percent oxygen (atmospheric air is about 21 percent). Injecting it into an intake manifold increases the oxygen that ends up in the cylinders. The nitrous itself doesn’t make more power; it helps the engine make more by allowing it to burn more fuel, which you must make sure it gets. Nitrous’s benefits to power output compound because it is stored as a liquid in a pressurized tank. As it evaporates, it also cools the intake charge, increasing charge density, further boosting the oxygen intake.
GAIN: A typical 10-pound bottle can provide a 100-hp boost for about two minutes, but that go-fast time drops as the power jolt increases.
Because diesel fuel starts to burn shortly after it’s injected, there’s little opportunity for the fuel and air to mix thoroughly. Diesels leave about one-fifth of the air in their cylinders unused, which is one reason they make less horsepower than gasoline engines. This problem can be addressed by injecting another fuel, such as propane, into a diesel’s intake manifold, giving it plenty of mixing time. The combustion process still starts when the diesel fuel is injected, but the leaner mixture of propane helps consume the otherwise wasted air. The propane and air mixture also increases the speed of combustion, which improves efficiency. Injecting alcohol into a diesel nets a similar result.
GAIN: A claimed 25 percent.
