Old nitrous

My nitrous has always worked fine but it has sit for about a year and now seems like it does nothing when used. Does nitrous go bad?

do you still have pressure in the tank? sounds like it may have all run out on you during that year....otherwise, check lines, trigger electronics, etc.

As long as no contaminates got into the valve...it should pretty much last forever.

EDIT: Tilt her forward. See if liquid runs out when you crack it open.

It's only a 50 shot, I didn't want to over do it. The "kick" was never really too noticeable as it was. Does this sound about right to others using a 50? It's a professionally installed Edelbrock system.

What do you mean you can hear the line charging? I don't understand what you mean by that...

If your purge works like you described thats a pretty solid sign that nitrous in the bottle is still good.

Yes. The "kick" isn't all that noticeable. But, you do feel it.

What I mean by that it when I turn the knob on I can hear the sound of the pressure pressurizing the line. Like when you screw a CO2 tank onto
a paintball gun for the 1st time (if that helps).

That exactly what that is...the line is filling.

So whats the problem...? Sounds to me like you're ready to rock and roll.

I feel very little when I hit the button. I didn't expect a HUGE difference but a 50 shot = around 50hp so shouldn't I feel some kick in the ass?

Maybe I just remember it being more powerful than it was

Are you tuned at all? If not then you are running crazy rich! That will make your 50shot feel like a 30 shot.

I think part of it has to do with your adrenaline. Honestly.

When I'd hit my 50 shot, if I was pumped up already I wouldn't feel it. If I hit it just out messing around I'd feel the little bump.

I wouldn't call it a kick in the ass...

I barely feel my shot. Its a bump...you just know you're haulin' ass because the tach is moving like crazy and you're passing everyone.

I got a buddy on a 100 shot...different car...and literally there is 0 feel.

He is right. The leaner you are the more you'll feel that pull.

Overall, sounds to me like you're fine. You may be able to lean it up a bit but you're running just fine...sounds like it anyway

Just get the bottle filled then you'll know for sure you have nitrous in there and no just leftover air..And when you purge do you get a white cloud ?? If not your on empty...
