Gday,

Iv been thinking about this for a little while, prob a stupid idea, but hey Im no expert so I dont know any better :wink:

If U have an oxygen bottle bleeding O2 into your carby at a constant rate, and then you tune the car to run with the higher level of oxygen. Will it have a higher output?

Im not saying run it totally on oxygen...just a trickle to lift the O2 level a bit. The engine would prob run hotter. But hell I dont know, anyone got any ideas?

Im not too keen on trying it out, just want to know if it would make a difference.

Like nitrous, only less safe.

Read up on nitrous oxide & you will discover why it is better (safer, more effective, simpler, less stressful on the car etc) than what you suggest.
