    wet or dry is about the same.

    dry - you have to make sure the nozzle is placed and aimed correctly towards the MAF to get good results. depending on size shot, you might need larger injectors and/or fuel pump. you may need to have the PCM tuned.

    wet - nozzle placement isn't as critical. don't need larger injectors. upgradde fuel pump is option as well. PCM tuning optional.

    I just picked up a HSW wet kit for my '02 WS6 M6. Can't wait to finish the install and get this thing out on the road! Look at getting an auto heater and a window switch with your setup. I'm also considering a fuel pressure safety switch just to be on the safe side.

    Ask for Matt @ HSW!

    Its easy really.

    Wet kits spray both fuel and nitrous @ the nozzle. This means that you have to tap into your fuel supply to feed the fuel solenoid - while at the same time spraying the giggle juice. Wet kits spray AFTER your MAF, and therefore the ECM is not responsible for adding fuel to compensate for the spray, unlike DRY kits...

    Dry kits spray straight nitrous into the airbox (usually), so that it passes through the MAF. When the nitrous is fired, it travels thru the MAF which then tells the ECM that the fuel mixture needs to be richened up due to the additional air it senses flowing. AKA: the ECM adjusts the fuel mixture on the fly to attain the proper A/F ratio.

    Its late, so I hope this makes sense... LOL

    WET IS MUCH BETTER!!! You can tune the air/fuel ratio where YOU WANT IT NOT HOPING THE COMPUTER COMPENSATES FOR THE LIQUID OXTGEN YOUR INJECTING. If you didn't know already thats all nitrous is basically is liquid oxygen.
    Not to mention you can get a plate design that goes BEHIND the throttle body not before and trying to evenly disperce itself to all 8 cylinders.

    If you do some different worded searches we have debated this in GREAT DEATAIL already.
