Hi people first post long time reader.

I am looking to get a Jaguar XJR with Nitrous for drag racing as well as a bit of weekend use. I am wanting a lot of gas to get good times.

So which would be the best base the older inline 6 or the later v8, does one engine have a better proven history with nitrous than the other. Looking for any advise, I have seen one of each in the price range

Look forward to your advise.

regards
stefan

I don't have experience specifically with Jaguars, but I can say that engines with more displacement or the same displacement but with more cylinders typically handle more nitrous granted it is built to the same standards. All things being equal I'd go V8, it depends on your goals.

I have some very quick customers using straight 6 Jag engines but some are a better design than others, so you'd need to find out which is the best one if you went that route.

I've also had a couple of customers with the Jag V8 but I've not had as much feedback from them about their results, so I can't pass on much about them.

I suspect that as long as the V8s have decent pistons, they would be the best option.

Interesting, I know the supercharged V8s have better pistons than the normal ones.

Looks like I will have to try a v8 then, I hope to get another motor to build into a nitrous motor to take big amounts gas but will start with retarded timing and colder plugs on the original on.

Time to start hunting for a car
