NOS for 202

hey people, i already know NOS is rather stupid, but i was just wondering if anyone here knows much about NOS, and knows whether or not a 202 could handle just the basic kit. We're talking about maybe a 75hp increase. Thanks.

If your talkin a stock 202, I seriously doubt it. You would need new pistons etc to handle it.

Cost aside a fresh 202 will handle a shot to some extent but if you decide to hold it down and flat change etc it will over rev a send a rod through your block. a 186 will handle it a little better but as revs increase liklyhood of engine failure will increase exponentialy. I had a 292 Chev 6 (basically the same as a Holden red) that had a 250HP fogger but it was rev limited to 6500 rpm which made the NO2 usless in lower gears...

well surely if ur 292 Chev 7 can run 250hp, then mine could handle a 75hp'er. But where did u get ur NOS from, i mean, i read that there is only one manufacturer in australia and i cant seem to find them.

thanks

Well can't tell you too much but it was freshly reconed when I got it. It was out of a Bedford truck and the previous owner reconditioned it and fitted it with tripple 45mm webbers and the Nitrous and had installed an aftermarket engine management system (possibly a Motec but can't remember it was nearly 20 years ago but it only controlled electrics but not fuel) he wanted to put it into his LC but ran out of cash and had receipts for well over 7K and I picked it up for $3200. I was still in school at the time and had just got my licence so the old man and Keith form K and S autos fitted it to my HR. There were many Teething problem with it but were minor issues, like the harmonic balancer vibrating loose X2, couldn't stop it pinging unless it was about 10 degrees retarded, and low oil pressure. But when it was working o.k it made almost all else look slow. the nitrous was pointless as you could only hit it in thrid and by that time you were already [Naughty Pottyword]ting yourself and if it was a quarter run you would probably be at around the 300-350m mark anyway.
if was a super motor and if you can still find one it would be a better option than stroking a Holden red, from what i remember all you had to do was change the engine mounts and it slotted straight in (but like i said i didn't fit it) I only did about 2000km in ti before i got a red sticker and lost my licence and sold the car off in parts I got $4150 for the engine and about a year later i was told by a mate that a bloke was using it in a HT prem for dragging and was pulling easy 11's but not sure if he had done anything else to the engine and what the cars set up was like...
