Nitrous Oxide: Supply & Distribution For Motorsport Use

Nitrous Oxide: Supply & Distribution For Motorsport Use

Serck Motorsport are the official appointed Nitrous Distributor in the UK, our supply is national to many customers and race teams. We are also building a new program for filling stations that are being set up throughout the UK mainland. We even have a filling station at Santa Pod Raceway as well as our Serck Motorsport facility in Hayes so you can fill up directly at the racetrack or bring it to us directly. Nitrous is by far the most cost effective way to produce massive horsepower gains with much more bang for your buck which is why it is so popular in the racing world.

Serck Motorsport are also suppliers of Nitrous Kits from Street to Race Track and can provide technical information on the ranges of these products to help suit your application from Drifting to Drag Racing.

There are many questions we get asked about Nitrous so to help you understand more about the benefits of Nitrous Oxide see the most popular questions and answers below.

How Does Nitrous Oxide Make a Car Go Faster?

So the injection of nitrous oxide into an engine means that more oxygen is available during combustion. Because you have more oxygen, you can also inject more fuel, allowing the same engine to produce more power. Nitrous oxide is one of the simplest ways to provide a significant horsepower boost to any gasoline engine. By using the recommended jets by the manufacturers you can specifically tune your Nitrous System for the correct amount of power you need and see the benefits immediately once its activated by your controller.

How Long Does A 10lb Bottle Of Nitrous Oxide Last

How Long Does A 10lb Bottle Of Nitrous Oxide Last?

For a NX system, the calculation is you will use . 8lbs for every 100hp per 10sec. So if you are spraying 100hp you should be able to get 6-8 good 10 sec. runs out of a bottle.

Why Do Nitrous Cars Purge?

The purpose of a nitrous purge is to ensure that the correct amount of nitrous oxide is delivered the moment the system is activated as nitrous and fuel jets are sized to produce correct air / fuel ratios, and as liquid nitrous is denser than gaseous nitrous, any nitrous vapor in the lines will cause the car to “bog” 
If you have a pressure gauge that is visual from the drivers position it also helps to bring your nitrous pressure to the correct level.

100hp you should be able to get 6-8 good 10 sec. runs out of a bottle.

Can You Put Nitrous On A Stock Engine

Can You Put Nitrous On A Stock Engine?

Nitrous only adversely affects engine reliability when used incorrectly or excessively. … You can use nitrous on a stock engine without problems. Most nitrous kit manufacturers recommend using a 60-hp shot or less on a stock motor.

Other FAQ's

Nitrous Oxide provides the oxygen that allows an engine to burn more fuel, more burned fuel equals more power.

A “Wet” system introduces a homogenous mixture of nitrous and atomized fuel into the incoming air stream, thus providing a perfect air/fuel ratio for each.

Of course, the nitrous system only affects performance when it is being used.

Nitrous in and of itself cannot “blow” an engine. Nitrous kits of poor design, poor quality, and improper air/fuel ratios damage engines.

Nitrous backfires can be caused by two situations:

1. A nitrous system that is too rich or a system that atomizes the fuel poorly, thus causing pooling or puddling of fuel in the intake manifold.

2. A system that is operated too lean.

“Shot” is commonly used slang in the nitrous community to refer to the amount of horsepower increase provided by the nitrous system.

With an NX system the only limitation is the capacity of the N2O bottle or the RPM limit of the engine.

When you want to go fast.

All NX systems come standard with wide-open throttle switches, however we offer an electronic TPS switch as well as a push button.

The only safe way is to use a wide open throttle switch, however you may configure any number of ways to “trip” the system but all must be used in conjunction with some type of wide open throttle switch.

A quality bottle heater is essential to proper nitrous system performance.

Yes, by utilising NX’s digital progressive controller, the “Maximizer”. This device allows the user to precisely control the amount of nitrous delivered to his engine from the comfort of the drivers seat.

NX has a system for every car manufactured in the world today.

All NX systems make within 2% of their claimed horsepower, if you jet the system for 50 horsepower then you can expect no less than 49 horsepower, but usually a few more than the rated amount.

That depends on the level of power being produced. The formula for calculating your nitrous usage is: 0.8 lbs N2O X 10 seconds = 100 horsepower. I.E. If your system is jetted for 100 horsepower it will use 0.8 lbs of nitrous for every 10 seconds of usage.

NX makes a system for every car manufactured today.

Most NX systems come complete with a 10 lb nitrous bottle, stainless steel bottle brackets, 16 ft aircraft style supply line, N2O filter, lifetime warranty nitrous and fuel solenoids with mounts, all standard jet settings, an NX patented Shark nozzle (nozzles), or a patented carburetted plate, wide open throttle switch, a complete installation pack that includes all bolts, nuts, washers, wire, wire terminals, lighted arming switch, and complete instructions with pictures.

To complete the installation a Gen-X package should be ordered with the system. This includes the bottle heater, liquid filled nitrous pressure gauge, low fuel pressure safety switch, and a external bottle vent fitting and plumbing kit.

Yes, it is quite easy to hide an NX system from the casual observer.

Yes, NX specialises in turbo-supercharged nitrous applications.

Generally speaking the amount of power that can be created with nitrous is almost limitless. To avoid a catastrophe, the internal components of the engine must match the amount of power that is going to be generated. The use of proper air/fuel ratios is essential and the quality of the nitrous system is paramount.

No other power adder will offer you the the horsepower per dollar that you get with nitrous oxide.
