    start with small jets, and dont go over a 150 shot on a stock bottom end.


    if I was you, I would read a bunch of how to's, and as much stuff in this nitrous section as possible. also, I'd get a wet system.

    first thing is, its NOT NOS.... thats fast and furious talk.. Its Nitrous. NOS is a maker of spray kits.

    Agreed with nitrorustler. Dont go over 150. Also remember playing with nitrous is never 100% safe for the engine. Cars with perfect setups still pop!

    to start out i would probably go with just a 100 shot dry

    plumb two nozzles into each side of your airlid and you set

    not really sure about the tuning tho

    get you a good wet kit like nitrous express - $600 or a little more
    get a window switch to turn it on and off at certain rpms -$100 and chips $50
    get a fuel pressure safety switch to cut it off if fuel drops- $30 i believe
    get a bottle heater -$120
    get a better spark plug like tr6 gapped at .30 to .35- $20

    you can do it for around $1000 and from what ive seen the tune is almost dead on spraying a 100-150 shot or for most cars it seems that away

    it was the best money i ever spent on my car

    get a cheap and simple dry kit. All you need colder spark plugs if you stay at 125WHP shot. Maybe a cat back kit.

    I'd recommend the Harris Speed works Sudden Impact kit. They do great work, they will tell you every safety feature you can add. Just look at my sig for the results:
    2002 A4 Z28: SLP LM exhaust and HSW 100whp dry shot.

    NA: 323.4WHP@5360 RPMs, 344.2ft-lbs@4610 RPMs,
    N2O: 417.0WHP@5200 RPMs, 467.6ft-lbs@4210RPMs

    NA: 13.351@107.48mph, N2O: 12.324@117.88

    I think the most important bit of advice you could take from this thread would be to take some time and do a good bit of research before you buy or install anything. Read up to learn more about the different types of kits (wet vs. dry; plate vs. nozzle; etc.) and all of the related safety equipment. After acquiring the most basic knowledge regarding N2O, then you'll be better prepared to select a kit that meets your specific needs.

    Personally, I wanted an idiot-proof setup that was safe, concealed and easy to operate. By the time I was done paying for the kit and the install (by far the most expensive part of it all), it ran just over $4,500, but it's done right and meets every one of my criteria. Here's my full setup:

    Nitrous Express MAF wet kit
    Nitrous Express Remote Bottle opener
    Nitrous Express Bottle warmer
    Nitrous Express Purge
    FJO Mini Controller -- progressive setup, WOT switch and window switch
    Racetronix Fuel Pump and hotwire kit
    Auto Meter Cobalt Fuel Pressure, N2O Pressure and Wideband A/F gauges
    Vengeance tune and install
    Plenty of other odds and ends to clean up the install, etc.

    From the driver's seat, I simply flip the arming switch on, hit the button to open the bottle and hit the gas pedal. The electronics handle all of the rest.

    1989 Corvette L98, A4, Full bolt ons, etc.

    I agree with midnight,
    I think the ZEX wet kits come with all that stuff where it only sprays at WOT,
    I am not sure about RPMs but I do know when its arms from a dead stop and you hit it, it would still take a a sec or two to actually kick in.

    no if you do not have a rpm switch and it is wired to a wide open throttle switch and you floor it from a dead stop the nitrous will kick on instantly

    So it probably does come with an RPM switch.
    The I seen the shop down here install that kit a few times, and I driven one of the mustangs with that system on and it took a sec for it to kick in.
