How Much Nitrous Can a 305 Small Block Stock Engine Take?
The 13th episode of Engine Masters, presented by AMSOIL, is an unlucky one for a poor little 305ci Chevy small-block. It was the victim of our test of how much nitrous oxide power boost can be tolerated by a completely stock short-block with the original cast crank, rods, and pistons. Yeah, it ends badly, but before the engine’s demise we learn a lot, showing you how nitrous oxide increases horsepower and giving you tips on how to use it safely on any engine. You’ll also learn a pretty good power combo for a 305 Chevy! Engine Masters is supported by Mr. Gasket and Earl’s Vapor Guard.
