    After further review: I decided that my first mod will be nitrous!!

    Im looking at dry kits. 75hp of maybe 100hp.


    i dont want to wreck my engine that has only 8K miles on it!


    I have some more questions because Im a newie to NOS...
    has anyone heard of : http://www.snowperformance.net/default.asp

    since a dry 100hp shot might cause a problem, do you think this methanol/water spray can help with prevention detonation with 100-125hp shot on NO2 on a stock motor??

    why bother with a water/meth kit, when for less than both, you can get a wet kit and not need the water/meth?

    You shouldn't have any issues on a properly set up 100 dry shot on a stock engine. No need for the methanol kit.

    Get a wet system and run it dry...then convert it to wet when you realize you wanted more power!

    just do what I did and start big lol. put a fuel pressure safety switch on it and run 200 wet shot right off the bat your fuel pump will let ya know if it wants to handle it!... Ok just kidding. just make sure you buy a good kit and get your required safety features
    Alright... I'm starting it now. Try not to piss yourself.

    But the question is....... Can a motor run for an extended amount of time on the bottle without major damage and if so how much is to much. My car has 120K just did heads cam and the works, if I spray it will it be around for my son to enjoy are is it an only a matter of time thing.

    Don't worry if something breaks, then you'll have to fix it with bigger, better, faster parts. Everytime I have ever broke something my car or sled ended up going faster, see its a good thing.

    the motor will be fine so long as you have the nitrous set up correctly and have no failures with any of the pieces over time.

    nitrous is no harder on your engine then other power adders. way back when the kits weren't sophisticated enough to have all the safety features that they do now there was damage done to engines because of either human error or faulty tuning..
