go to dissagree really, building an engine speciffically for nitrous is completely different from adding a cam, then a filter, etc, thats kinda my point really, you can build up bit by bit an engine, work on it, develop it, if you put nitrous on, thats it, nitrosed, done, its the nitrous making most of the power and governing the engine,
as for the comment about phase kits, yeas they arent the best way to tune a turboed car, but there is no way you can call them a cop out, they are a cheaop way to get more power form your engine without needing the expertise to map an ecu or whatever, by your analagy everyone who fits an airfilter should be getting tbs and mapping the ecu, otherwise they are copping out, think not, just different levels of wanting to tune your engine
Read that back mate, its SO funny, how exactly is a phase kit different from a basic nitrous instalation because your description of one works perfectly for the other and vice versa.
Im not saying everyone with a different cam should have TBs and a custom ECU, or that everyone with nitrous should do a total engine build specced for nitrous, im just saying that in both instances you can, or you can just fit it to the engine you have and see smaller gains, any of
can be fitted on their own, or with a complete engine rebuild to optimise the whole spec to work better, thats the same for ALL tuning and is no different with nitrous.
If you change cam then to get the most from your engine you should raise the CR etc
You dont HAVE to, but you have that choice, same with nitrous, you dont HAVE to lower the cr to allow you to run more, but you can if you want.
