    that's 'only' a T10 not a T10K . I agree an estate would be a better choice but hats off to anyone who can do this.

    By the end of the year I hope to be rear while drive also but unfortunately not in a Volvo, will be a Renault if all goes to plan

    dont try automotive nitrous, its not the same as medical stuff.

    apparently, all it would do is make you loose your voice.

    medical nitrous is a mixture of gasses, giving something close to a mild version of poppers.

    ...so I'm told.

    Looks a truly bonkers project so I look forward to seeing you pull it off!!

    My only concern would be [& I think someone else posted along similar lines] what the hell happens when you power into a corner with all that extra horsepower + weight in the back???? I know some Yank has already built a similar car, albeit a saloon, but they're not famous for producing great cornering vehicles - straight line speed yes......bendy bit on road, screech, eeeek, big tree, bang, oops....very bent motor [plus big fireball if it was a movie ]. How are you planning on keeping your Swedish rocket stuck to the macadam??

    Cheers, Shin

    Time will tell, but it will be very bias to front wheel horse power, MR2's and most supercars seem to manage to get around corners, so I don't expect too much of an issue.

    Probably OK to use it but I bet medical is more expensive....

    Automotive-grade liquid nitrous oxide differs slightly from medical-grade nitrous oxide. A small amount of sulfur dioxide (SO2) is added to prevent substance abuse. Multiple washes through a base (such as sodium hydroxide) can remove this, decreasing the corrosive properties observed when SO2 is further oxidised during combustion into sulfuric acid, making emissions cleaner.

    From here...

    this guy is a good read also....http://www.nitrous.info/nitrous-n20--refills.htm
