The Kia story is hilarious! Nitrous on a Kia? Lol, what will they come up with next, a supercharged Prius?

From what I have read, heard, and been told this is most of the benifits, Now the down fall is on a N/A motor your going to loose a little power due to propane isn't as explosive as gas, But in my application if you boosted, All I have to due is crank my turbo another pound or 2 and im right back to the same power plus I have ALOT of room to work for more power.
But propane is so much easier to tune and you don't have to run any maps, and injectors and a ECU to run alot of power so I am personally going to save 3 grand just by switching and not tuning with gas.

He stated about a 200sx in the orginal post, But I have a 240sx Im going to come run with.
The 200sx's are FWD, Which I don't understand why anyone with common sense would want to build, But the 240sx are RWD and some, not many but some are QUICK!!!
I have never been to a 1/4 mile track but my 240 should trap 120+MPH
I should be trapping right at or a little over 100MPH in the 1/8th this summer.
The silvia you probably ran at the track more than likely had the sr20 swap which is a 4cyl turbo motor, Its the most popular motor for the 240's, But I personally don't like them, Thats why I went with the RB skyline swap, The RB has some MAd torque for a 6cyl.
Not bragging but I have not had a v8 pull me out of the hole yet. I had a few Nitrous mustangs get me ( Full 6 second drag cars), But not 1 N/A v8 has stood a chance. I think its weird but cool!
