The Stars At Night
just to let u know i searched for about 30 min straight and i found nothing about how to brake boost and what it is.....i was just wondering cuz i read it in a thread a little while ago.

Yeah he should take advice on brake boosting from someone with a Celicacrucible said:I can hear your brakes scream!!!!!!!!!!!!! and your transmisson cry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How does nitrous work out on the street? Does it really boost instantly from a stop without stalling it up? Are you able to maintain traction? Im thinking about running a kit shortly and am wondering what size/type of a system I am going to use.

Unless terminology has changed in recent years and I'm unaware of it ...very well could be ...IMO some of us are mixing up brake boosting and power braking. Most of the answers here are right but I'm just referring to the correct terminology. Power braking applies only to auto trannies from a standing start ...yeah yeah I don't even have an auto Supra but I've had other auto tranny cars; hold the brake push the gas pedal but not enough to move, release the brake and off you go. And we know the turbo will build boost at the line cause you're able to load the engine against the TQ without moving. Not as easy with a manual trans ...unless you're using a two step or the launch control option like on my Racelogic which also builds boost at the line. But brake boosting is when you load up the engine against the brakes while moving which then also builds boost so when you release brakes off you go.
the formula for nitrous oxide is actually N2O, not NO21997SilverTT said:Andrew,
Whats up bud? With the 75 shot it spools the turbo instantly. Actually it doesn't increase spool time but allows the car to reach the spool rpm instantly. I am not sure with the 6 speeds but with auto's and higher stalls it's great. You have the AEM so you can shut it off when you reach desired boost to keep traction and can run a safer dry kit. I have not hooked up the NO2 with the AEM yet (I'll leave that up to Sean). I had the NO2 hooked to my horn as a switch (biggest button I could find) I would let off just when boost was climbing. Traction was a little better cause the car was moving faster when the turbo boosted. You should get the kit you'll like it. You will need a bottle heater to maintain constant bottle pressure. Cold bottle will push 400 - 600 psi but when heated will do 900 - 1000 psi.
