Over the holidays I came to appreciate the performance of my Smart Car on the Dallas mixmaster at the height of rush hour on the way to a funeral. I was rather surprised and I daresay I surprised a few other drivers. It's late at night and I have silly ideas at these hours. I engaged in the question of what it would be like if I installed a nitrous system on my Smart? Has anyone done this? I unfortunately have a gearhead friend who gave me the calculations to figure out how to order one for the engine size. I love him, but when it comes to gear, he's kind of an enabler.

Anyway, anyone actually tried this?

…oohhhh…have some faith on the little 3 banger…
…can it be done??? sure…if you know what you’re doing…not easy
…plugs need to be copper core not platinum…one step colder…and gap reduced..
…timing pulled 1 to 2* per 50 shot…and here is where it gets tricky…you need to have access to the ECU or a piggy back controller to do this and tune to keep AFR happy…dyno time
…now…are the clutch and transmission healthy enough to take that shot at WOT???…

jetfuel…just the basics…
