Everyone is laughing, but no one has told a joke: there is nothing funny about speed! (You get it? Nitrous oxide —laughing gas…nevermind) In either case, if you’re looking to add some oomph to your get-up, the team at Accelerate Auto Repair can help with nitrous. Introduced to the mainstream world with the 2001 Box Office smash hit Fast and Furious movie (or epically continuous series of films), nitrous or NOS is an additive that can quickly add unrivaled performance to your vehicle.

Without further ado, let’s take a Fast Five-minute look at nitrous (warning…corny Fast, Furious wordplay below). But if you don’t need the overview, reach out to the nitrous mechanic at Accelerate Auto Repair today.

What Is Nitrous?

Nitrous Oxide is a non-flammable and colorless gas that may come with a mildly sweet taste and odor. Also known as N20, NOS, nitrous, and laughing gas, Nitrous Oxide has been used by dentists as a painkiller or anesthetic during surgical procedures. However, when nitrous is added to carburetors, it has an entirely different Turbo Charged effect on your vehicle.

The purpose of a nitrous system is to bolster the output of power and performance of your engine. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fuel available to burn and increasing its oxygen supply. While this sounds relatively simple, the nitrous system has several parts and components that must seamlessly work with impeccable timing to achieve the desired results. And to achieve the required timing and performance, it’s imperative to have your nitrous installation performed by an experienced mechanic.

What Are the Key Parts and Components Involved with Nitrous Installation?

Now that we’ve given a general explanation of nitrous that we hope wasn’t 2 Fast 2 Furious, let’s explore the most common parts and components involved with a nitrous installation.

  1. The bottle of nitrous. Yep — you guessed it. This is the tank that houses the pressurized nitrous in liquid form.
  2. The nitrous plate. The NOS plate is where nitrous and extra fuel are injected. It’s situated between the intake manifold and the throttle body.
  3. The feed line. Since nitrous tanks are often situated in the vehicle’s rear, the nitrous feed line supplies liquid to the nitrous plate for injection.
  4. Brass jets. These brass fittings feature small holes that allow different amounts of fuel or nitrous to flow through them. Large brass jet holes allow more nitrous or fuel to flow, which means increased performance. Your brass jet fitting will be based on the performance desired.
  5. Fuel Rail Adapter. The nitrous fuel rail adapter mounts between the fuel rail and fuel line. It enables the nitrous plate to access the fuel line.
  6. Electrical components. There are a host of different wires, electrical relays, sensors, and more employed to activate the exhilarating performance you desire in a nitrous installation.

Your nitrous installation may or may not feature purge valves. In addition to head-turning aesthetic appeal, purge valves can help ensure nitrous is sprayed immediately into the nitrous plate with precise timing.
