I think what Dave is saying is he has a lot of time, experimentation, and the info is not for public consumption but clients only. I'm sure he uses a form of the old 297 patent as it is the best there is. Knowing the % is the real secret. Getting it there is easy. I'd work with him if you are serious about the direction you are talking about. Good luck,

Joe

well, being as i am serious about it, and haved succesfully tuned many nitrous cars on pump 93 as well as ethanol, and c16, Ill just give it a go on my own.. Im sure Dave has TONS more expierience than I in this department, but if no one wants to offer any advice Ill teach myself on my own as I have on everything else.. Its just a toy car anyways.. :lol:

Make sure your alcohol is as free of moisture as possible, the hardest thing about alky and nitrous is getting/keeping the alcohol atomized or you'll have dangerous lean spots and backfires. If you're strictly going to run plates I'd work on making a custom 3 bar discharge with the center one using standard V dual outlet for the nitrous, then two single outlet bars for the fuel, that way you can get 90 degree of nitrous atomizing the fuel. ;)
