my son has a cavalier that he put a 50 shot on and is running 14.4 thru the qtr. yesterday he lost the compression rings on#2 cyl, i told him that the stock rings would not hold up to hitting the system very often. he has 40.000 miles on car. what i would like to know is will the nitrous do this to a stock engine if you throw alot of nitrous to it. i will not put it on my 04 goat if this happens alot. or do our cars have better rings in them. hope i came to the right thread.
