    I am not exactly sure the HP, but he is completely street legal. The nitrous adds a little jump :jester:

    Nitrous? in a Diesel? Water Meth maybe or Propane. Nitrous just send pyro's off the chart

    Lots of guys spray. It's not bad for a diesel, especially for only 10-12 seconds.

    Water meth or water is ok, propane is old school and mainly used for economy purposes than performance ;).

    Nitrous doesn't increase EGT's. It isn't a fuel, it's an oxidizer. Propane is a fuel and will pre detonate around 60 psi of boost from a set of compounds and melt pistons. Please don't ask me how I know this.....:cry: (Sigh)

    Diesels love nitrous. Remember, a gasser throttles on air. A diesel throttles on fuel. You couldn't 'lean out' a high performance diesel if you wanted to. The problem isn't too much boost, it's keeping the cylinder head on the block. Nothin' like 135 psi of turbo boost.

    The Schied puller used to see 215 psi from 2 HX-82s and stuff started comin' apart behind the bellhousing. They've since turned it down to about 135 psi. The Banks Drag Racer is in the 7 second range. The Audi R-10 turbodiesels dominate the 24 Hours of LeMans.

    If you ain't a diesel guy yet, you will be.

    I forgot to add, that 's a lifted daily driver on 1 turbo. Plenty more of those around dipping into the 10's and driving to work every morning ;)

    Well put.
