View Full Version : ***timing issues when on NOS***

07-18-2004, 03:09 PM
so retarding the timing is important from what i've read so far. but i see it as a hassle to retard/advance every time. if i was to get the apexi itc, wouldn't this work for retarding/advancing the timing without having to go to the motor with a timing light or adjusting the cam gears every time..

nice find..was about to buy a used msd 6a in the classifieds. didn't know they had one of these. good looking out :boink:

You don't adjust cam timing for nitrous, you adjust ignition timing. The best thing to do would be to properly set your ignition timing and then use an MSD timing retard module.

how much do you plan on running?

07-20-2004, 11:55 AM
i have a 75shot for the record....

but if you do retard it, 2 should be fine

Hey what's the RUN on your time slips? I ran a 14.3 on my f22a , 75 shot, Home depot cold air intake.

I had a MSD retard module on my 93' toyota pickup & it's the alot easier than propin' up the hood everytime you wanna run NOS... Touch & Go as simple as that...oh the truck ran a 13.9 on the 1320.

[B]N.O.S. Recommends that you set it back 3 degrees.

14.3?! u can't be serious! i only managed a 15.4 with the juice, what kinda kit was it? 75 shot as in flywheel or wheel hp?

07-24-2004, 03:54 AM
Yup! 14.3
Car: 92’ EX 4dr A/T (Old Car)
Engine: f22a, SOHC
System: Nitrous Oxide System (N.O.S.) Dry set up, HiFlow Valve upgrade, Glycerin Filled Gauge (The most accurate) HiFlow Solenoids upgrade, Matching Nozzle & Vaccume Jets, Bottle warmer Blanket
Fuel: Unical 76 – 110 Octane Race Gas
Suspension: H&R, Tokico
Tire: Yokohama H4 (Street)
Tire Pressure: 24 PSI (Fatter Foot Print)
Technique: Burnout box till I hear them “Bite” onto the TARMAC

Some ppl ask why an A/T? Reply: It’s more CONSISTENT. (Most Quick Cars Run a Slick Shifting”4” on the floor)
No Neutral BOMBS! That’s what Killed my first Tranny.
Yes, I did have a Do It Yourself Home Depot Intake (as long as you can get the air in there)
Everything listed above are the result of doing your homework & having friends who know their Stuff. There’s no bull shit here, just trying to help.

Post the slip and anything else you have to support your claim. I've seen A/T Accords running 60 and 75 shots and never be any faster then a 15.8 at factory wieght.

yea that's the biggest load of crap i've ever heard!!! 14.3 !?!?!?! even if hell froze over you wouldn't even be able to run a 15.3 lol...

my best past with a jdm h22a and tranny with bolt ons running 100hp wet shot on 110 octane w/ 6 1/2lb slicks and rear half of car gutted was 13.17 @ 109mph. w/ no timing retard(loss of power when you retard your timing) so you do the math...

f22 about 100-105 whp then w/nitrous about 60whp more so were looking at about 160 actuall whp in a 3000lb car with you in it AND an automatic tranny:lol: yea man you'd be running mid 15's maybe maybe maybe a 15.1 or 15.2 but there's no way in holy hell that you could even break 14's with that setup. it's just not happening. nice attempt at a lie though :D

let's see a slip that you photoshopped though ( just for effect :lol: )
