    Thought I'd ask you 2, and anyone else that might know.

    How much of a shot of nitrous do you think these things could hold with out taxing it too much?

    50/75/100 shot?

    I figure 50, but maybe 75, 100 not on my car, but I just wonder what ya'll think?

    it would be a wet kit.....opps said to much....I mean, Uh...
    Hypothetically, oh course...

    Re: jefferyG and Speedingpenguin

    well just because i dont know how easy it would be to replace internal stuff (rods, pistons, etc.), i would go easy on the juice.....
    I wouldnt go more than a 75 shot, but most likely i'd stay with a 50 shot of n2o
    Post if you actually do this, it would be interesting to see. It probably wouldnt kill you to go with a 100 shot, but just to be safe, 75 would be safer. Good luck

    I will post when I get it done, I'm rebuilding the air intake and all the pipeing, just have to have time to test fit some things, and I have to find a way to get to the schader valve, should at least supprize a few people with it.

    take pics along the way!
    what nitrous kit are you going to use?
    N.O.S.? Zex? Nitrous Works? (I think thats the brand....)
    Get something adjustable so that you can find a level that you think is the lowest you can go while fitting your needs.....dont wanna over do it :-)

    The Catera's V6 has thin (width) connecting rods, and i'd really caution using anything higher than 50 at first... then if it can handle it, you could go higher. Your best off changing the rods though.

    Hadn't really thought of that, but yeah...you could probably use the stock rods for a little nitrous but if you were gonna use a bigger shot of nitrous, you would proably be best off replacing the rods....

    You probably could order some reinforced engine components from germany, for a larger shot, however for that price, you could probably fit a V8 in there.

    We know for a fact you can, its being done as we speak, theres an Australlian car company called Holden doing it... i gave him some info on that. The chassis is almost a spot on match from the (in simple comparison terms) new Pontiac GTO which is a Holden Commedore. And the Catera/Omega is a Holden Berlina in Au.


    Saab also uses the same V6 as ours, but in a FWD configuration. Saabs connecting rods are thicker and also provide more lubrication. There's some companies in that make performance rods or im sure you could get custom made ones in the US here. $$$

    All the info you wanna know on our engine, the X30XE:

    Yeah I have a up it till it blows kind of thing going on, but I will try to find me some good rods and pistons before I do to much to it.

    Any one had the heads off of one of these?
    are they thin walled or do they got some thickness to them?
