Default Nitrous Purge Kit - The 2 fast 2 furious Nissan Skyline .

Guy I hope each one of you must have seen the movie 2 Fast 2 Furious.When Paul Walker is asked to reach the venue in 10 mins for a drag by one of his colleague.He turns up in a customised Nissan Skyline..When he enters and is showing off his machine smoke seems to be flushed out from the front bumper vents.Can all the inhouse tuners help me with,as to what it can be and can we have that technology in our customised cars too.

Busa.

it is called "purge" and is used to clear the gas from the lines which have accumulated, since NOS is best in liquid form.
BUT in 2F2F it is CO2 that they use.

CO2 to clear the lines...?? Then doesn't that slightly contaminate the NOS leading to a leaner mixture...?? How on earth does that help...??

no no they dont clear teh lines. some cars have co2 kits instead of NOS. they do this for purely cosmetic purpose.

Guys,

It is called Nitrous Purge kit and can be used in any car irrespective whether NOS is installed or not.

It is sold as a seperate kit and has its own cylinder and the gas used is available in various colours.

they use led lights at the tip of the nozzle to get the coloured effect ...
also NOS purge is used as a blow off valve in order to maintain optimum pressure ...correct me if i am wrong ..
CO2 are pruely for show purposes and refills are cheaper ...
