Post nitrous, auto tranny?

if you have the nitrous being injected in the car at wot, and you have a auto tranny, when the car shifts, your still going to be at wot, wont the nitrous still be injected in the motor when the tranny is between the shift points? wouldnt that be continuous redlining...

i was talking to a guy and he brought that up so i thought i check into.....

thanks,
space

it's a good point. most NOS kits i've seen inject nitrous at WOT by sensing the throttle position, but with an auto, you aren't going to take your foot off the gas in between gears, so no break from the nitrous.

i don't know how bad this is for the auto transmission, since i've never bothered to think about an automatic. but it can't be too good, I'm sure.

I've never noticed any contiunuous redlining. I can't speak for anyone else though. With the car at full throttle, it shifts just like flooring it without the nitrous. That is until you start having tranny problems.

I rest my case.

Yeah, it sounds like it just shifts like normal. At least, I know that turbocharged cars shift like normal too, that can't be too different from NOS.
