    yea, a hypothesis, but theoretically we can figure it out by just doing a bit of chemistry

    the only thing that may possibly work is if u feed a very small ammount of regulated oxygen into ur intake along with the normal atmosphere. this would just increase the percentage of oxygen ur engine gets and keep it from blowing up for at least 2 passes. and ud have to compensate with fuel, a fuel injected car would probably work best for this... but this is all madness... it would be worthless... N2O is proven to work and is still the cheapest most efficient power adder.

    ok now you have 80% more oxygen which does not burn it only supports the combustion of the fuel of which you now need 80% more of. if your nitrous tune is off a little lean you melt alum if your pure oxygen setup were to go lean your intake would leave your car in an iraq car bomb kind of way

    O2 doesnt compress worth a shit.
    O2 is HIGHLY flammable
    O2 burns wayyyyy toooo HOT

    My idea is turn run liquid dynamite. I'd be safer than O2.

    isnt liquid dynamite nitro glycerine?...
    ur right that would probably be safer anyway, lol
    but u still need the o2 for combustion
    fire cant exist without oxygen

    its not that o2 is more flamable than anything else, its that o2 is necesary for a flame.
    u need fuel (hydrocarbon in most cases), and oxygen.

    in most cases the fuel doesnt combust completly because it doesnt have enough oxygen, but if u put enough o2 for them to combust 100% it burns too rapidly for an engine to handle

    in the case of adding direct 02 u wouldnt need much compresion... its gonna make a big combustion anyway

    what ur talking about isnt well suited for an internal combustion engine... this is more of a jet engine, or rocket concept, where compression is not an issue.
    (actually rockets do basicly work on the concept of o2 injection)

    basicle what im saying is put a jet engine in ur car and then inject pure o2... that would be bad ass!

    i saw a pic of a vw beetle with a jet engine in it, in a hot rod magazine i think

    it was really gay looking in a beetle
