yes. you can put nitrous oxide onto nearly all engines but its not a good idea unless you build up the bottom end. the diesel engine would be built in a truck application but not a car one. Besides, you have plenty of torque and power with a diesel engine on its own....


Back wen I was working for a wholesale distributor of performance/race parts I had a customer(Performance Chips of Utah) with a 2004 Dodge Ram Cummins quad cab short bed that had NOS, propane, water-methanol injection and an upgraded Banks turbo and intercooler. I believe he was making around 800hp and 1400tq at the wheels. With a lift and 38" tires he would run a 11.2 second quarter mile at Rocky Mountain Raceway in Salt Lake City which is 4500' above sea level. Another customer (Gillette Diesel) had a Chevrolet Duramax that had similar power.


no im pretty sure u cant run nos thru a diesel. but you can run propane while using the same set up as a nos system tho

if its tuned right you can run lp, nos, and a blower in a deisel. there compretion rasio 18 - 24. its possible if you know what youre doing.
