That's one of those videos where you say "oh fuck!" as you're watching it. Gotta be careful with your nitrous install and tune or bad things happen.

Here's the thing I decided to do a dry hop and my rpm's were basicaly at idle and I guess when I floored it all without any stall my rpm's were too low and boom. Just the intake blew up throttle body and everything else seems to be fine.

No it's not here's the deal. My rpm's were too low to spray the nitrous out of idle pretty much. My own mistake I got excited because this race was going to be a real good race he ran a 12.1 in that run.

I know it sux and it was my own mistake I flipped the switch to see how good it was going to launch/hook after the burnout but I forgot to stall it and my rpm's were way too low. :( dont worry guys ill be up and running in no time and faster then ever.

i hate to sound like the "know it all" but thats not caused from not enough RPM. the problem is not nitrous at all. its fuel puddling from the wet kit. when you are doing the burnout at WOT then no throttle the intake velocity drops real quick, before all the fuel can be sucked into the combustion chamber on that cycle. and its too heavy to be inhaled at idle, so it just puddles in the bottom of the intake runners. a quick stab at the throttle creates a high load situation that requires ALOT of timing, the quick change in timing allows the intake valve to be slightly open as the ignition happens, and POWWWW. nitrous backfire, or so everyone calls it. nitrous DOES NOT BURN without fuel and pressure.
