NOS, turbo, compressors (superchargers) all generate kW/h (horsepower) and torque.
A NOS loaded engine will generate more kW/h and torque when NOS is injected. If NOS did not generate more kW/h, by heightening the burn temperature of the fuel increasing the engine performance, it would be pointless to use it.

its kinda funny though...the game has everything BUT nos... i dont get it.. most pimped out cars around here have nos systems in it... it ads a good 70+ hp and totally eliminates turbo lag... but..whatever
I beg your pardon? First of all it's not called "turbo lag". The name is load pressure delay.
NOS doesn't have anything to do with the turbo so what you're saying is plain bs.
The only way to keep the load pressure constant is to keep the rpm up while gearing.

turbo lag? well theres only turbo lag if u cant shift... and have too big of a turbo

i dont know much about superchargers and turbos, but i asked a mechanic what was that noise i hear when a wrx goes down the street when shifting gears and it was the blowoff valve that he said eliminates the lag from turbos when shifting gears
The common name is dump valve, and it doesn't eliminate the need to re-establish the load pressure between gear shifts. A dump valve releases overpressure.
