Red face the new BOATING issue

Guys I got the scare of my life when I flipped through the new boating magazine...

They have a how to on installing a nitrous system in a boat...

The article goes something like this....

Tired of seein big joe fly by in his high speed boat, well no more, once you hit that button youll be flying right by mr high performance making him wonder what the heck you have under the hood....

to say the least, that is a scary thought...

can you say chinewalk= accidents......??????

What are these people thinking in boating magazine?

let alone they say nothing about the stresses involved in using NOS. All they say pretty much is Nos is like a supercharger but the supercharger just forces air into the intake while all nitrous does is cool the air to - 127 degress and is better then a supercharger because it is pretty much on and off, unlike the supercharger which is always on.....

I didnt read anywhere how, people who install this may need to be careful because the extra power may cause the boat to chinewalk out of control.. nor did it say if you hold the button down to long youll blow the motor sky high... especially with non forged pistons.....

anyone care to vent about this? im glad I just did,


but im just warning everyone

LOOK OUT!!!!!!

I was surprised to see that too.. I can't wait to have all these average joe's with juice running around All i can see is people going back to mercruiser and saying " It just quit".. "sir the motor is one melted mass" ...


That was a pretty lame article i thought... someone possibly could get hurt.

I think I can smell lawsuits brewing......

Im pretty sure you have to jet 3 or more sizes rich for NOS...

anyone care to buy some nos and sue boating mag when you blow the motor up since they never said what could happen?
lol j/k

We have to deal with enough BS with the PWC out there, now this?

damn, whats is the world coming to?

what I meant by that is that the slow "bayliner" types will supposedly have the high performance guys wondering what they have under the hood, obviously the high performance guys wont be wondering.

it was just a ploy by boating, and im not even sure it says exactly that, but I think you got my point?

your kidding right shooter?

the Nos allows the motor to push more rpms....(or rather explode)

precisely my point - unless there is a rev limiter - oh, but they probably show you have to remove that...

The rev limiter is when the pistons melt to the cylinders..
