Nitrous Refill Run

After work I did a 370 mile round trip run in my Turbo Coupe to refill my 20lb bottle, that's the longest I've driven it since I bought it a few years ago. I found myself doing 85 to 90 down the road. This Boport/Stinger TC wants to run free down the highway, I was even pasted by a State Trooper and I was 20 over the limit ? I just dropped it in 4th gear and I'm passing everybody LOL !

Since the Nitrous factory blew up a few years ago in Florida all my normal refill stations closed down around here and AirGas doesn't allow in store pickups and will not deliver to my house. So I called Summit Racing in Arlington Texas and they could refill it. Just got to check the date on the tank and make sure it's not due a Hydro test cause they check it like 3 times at the store. So 20 pounds of nitrous cost me 134.78 out the door. Might buy another 20 pound bottle and use them as my mother bottles, still have 1/4 tank of gas too so I'm up for another run !

Thanks

I picked up another E6 manifold and going to send it out to Boport and have him port it out, then I'll put a 3" exhaust on.
