So I know NOS is good for big power, and big holes in engine blocks, but what about small amounts for towing. I know it clears the smoke, but what effect does it have on EGTs? If you had a small shot and good programming would there be any benefit in using it to get up over those big hills.

Just thinking. :D

NO...nitrous should only be used when the tach is rapidly rising...like racing.

If you're looking to get over those hills with lower EGT's you need to look into a water only injection kit. It can be used like you describe.

Water injection is already on this list, I was just thinking. I don't know much about NOS in diesels.

Water injection... I can tow about any hill or mountian pass pulling 8-10k on the race setting and hold 1200 all day long...

Adding NOS will spike the temps......but I would be lying if I said I never sprayed while in tow....does a sled count?

I didn't know about the effects on EGTs, with an increase it wouldn't work well for normal towing, now for sled pulling ............
