Direct port or Sledgehammer

Post  John Myrick on January 19th 2015, 1:47 pm

Thinking about putting nitrous on and need to know the pros and cons of each. If anyone has used both your input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
John

With direct port you can fine tune each cylinder with a plate it is what it is. The plate will give a harder hit do to it being up higher at the carb pad.

A plate is easy.

Port injection is always favored.

One of the things I always ask a potential customer is how much MAX HP might you EVER be looking for. Sometimes room for growth is impotant, and sometimes if a guys only looking for say a max of 2-300 a plate is easier for many.. Thanks, SJ

ihave used both had 2 foggers on a small block and a big block with a fogger and a plate, The new sledge hammer is very nice for spraying the house down over 40 pills 400hp you can not beat an annular fogger, but under that the plate rules

With a plate set up how much better would distribution be with a 4500 mafia intake versus a 4500 victor? I know the TFS intake is better overall, just wondering if it would be more nitrous friendly also.
Thanks,

The TFS intake is bigger, but not necessarily better on all applications.

I don't think either one would be any better than the other as far as distribution
