This is what can happen when an engine is moded the wrong way. Nitrous can be very very bad to you and your car if everything is not followed by the book. So please do not try anything your not sure of. Always ask lots of question about what the mod will do and how to do it the right way. These two hot rodders thought they knew it all. My younger bother took this photo, he is an investigator for the local fire dept.

was the driver street racing?

Looks like the car was in an accident. Did the accident cause the fire? Did the nitrous system catching fire cause the accident?

When the car went boom it ran off the road and hit the tree.
When they hit the nitrous all turned to hell, and no they were not racing just testing out their system.

I was just about to ask about this as well. I never had a car with nitrous in it. I figure it would cost me too much if I blew the motor, I guess thats true, but it looks like it could cost a lot more than just a motor!

Another reason I let the pros do the work for me. I can tune a carburated engine by ear no problem but start putting all kinds of stuff on it and I give up.

I think it would be a good idea to have a thread just for learning about different mods, cause & effect... maybe I'll add this to the suggestion thread.

Nitrous can be the biggest bang for your buck for making HP if installed correctly. I went with a supercharger in my truck to get the power I wanted. But even with a SC you must beef up the motor.

I came across a Charger SRT-8 that had been moded out so that the car was pushing 700 horses at the wheels. And the guy said he wanted more power. Can you say jet propolsion!!!!!

I was thinking more along the lines of those 1500+ hp engines monster trucks run.
