How to Install and Tune Nitrous Oxide Systems By Bob McClurg

Written by Moore Good Ink

The use of nitrous oxide as a chemical supercharger has been extremely popular since the 1980s, and each year technological advances make it easier and safer to use. Veteran author Bob McClurg reviews the latest and greatest advancements in today’s engineering and the readily available equipment that allows us to apply liquid power to any engine. His vast experience brings irrefutable authority to the 144 pages of this fascinating book.

He educates on the properties of nitrous oxide and reviews individual components as well as complete systems. In addition he asks all the right questions associated with the use of nitrous oxide in this beautifully illustrated work.

McClurg, the Belfast-born American motoring journalist and Editor, first came to prominence in the 1960s, demonstrating his memorable prowess in drag racing photography — his late night fiery images remain indelibly in the memory. A premier enthusiast-book author, “Hilo Bob” who lives in Hawaii, is highly rated by his previous works. These include Diggers, Funnies, Gassers, and Altereds; How to build Supercharged and Turbocharged Small-Block Fords; Fire, Nitro, Rubber, and Smoke; and Yenko: The Man.

  1. Greetings. I’ve been looking for years for a photo l think Mr. McClurg might have taken. I can’t find the magazine it was published in but have vivid recall of several details that might help me find it, or at least who took the shot. Don Schumacher’s blue Cuda Funny Car, night shot, rear angled view, up very close. l have more but too many details to list. If you can help me find this pic l’d be forever grateful. Dave

  2. If it’s a night-time flame shot taken at Budd’s Creek, Maryland of Bobby Rowe driving Don Schumacher’s purple ‘Cuda, then I’m your man.
