      @John Yazbek Poly bushings are for a track car. And they really shake the whole car in temps below 50F degrees. Bad idea on street car. Where can you legally drift @4 g's on the streets? Nowhere.

      Scotty, What about polybushes? There's so much advice out there to install them, but saw a video the other day where they transferred all the vibrations from engine to chassis in a guy's car. What's your take on them?

      Hey Scotty, what about engine performance chips? Good idea or not? I’ve got a 2000 miata and manufacturer says it may increase horsepower and gas mileage dramatically.

                            I say NOS should be only used in drag racing (if rules allow ofcourse) and should always be professionally installed

                              I don't use NOS for my car, but I drink it from time to time in the morning, and scotty is right, even the biggest cans don't last for more than a few minutes.

                                                          Originally nitrous oxide was used during ww2 by some Russian airplanes like LA7 due to underpowered engines and inability to keep up with German Messerschmitt.Short speed boost allowed them to gain more speed during dog fight.

                                                                In my days ( same days as you) NO2 was much too expensive in Canada so we used Naphtha gas, a cool can filled with dry ice and an electric adjustable gas pump. Not as good as NO2 but not far behind. If mixed too rich, it would also blow holes in the pistons or melt the valves. Ahhh the good old days.
