Can nitrous injection be a constant source of power?

Can nitrous injection be a constant source of power?

Although nitrous oxide injection could be used as a permanent power booster (like a turbocharger), it is impractical to do so, because it is impossible to carry an adequate size cylinder in a car or on your bike. The fact that nitrous injection provides a temporary increase in power, which can be switched on and off, is however an advantage in many situations. This is particularly true when fitted to street cars/engines that produce enough power to satisfy the driver for normal day to day use. When the occasion arises that you need that extra burst of power, you can reach for the arming switch, put your foot to the floor and unleash some of your power reserve. With just a flick of a switch, the engine can be immediately transformed from mild to wild and back again. In contrast to other forms of tuning which constantly have an adverse effect on an engine’s fuel economy, a Nitrous Oxide System only adversely affects fuel economy while the system is activated. With petrol prices as they are, fuel economy should be an important consideration when deciding which power enhancing method to choose.
