    depends on what you want out of the kit. If you are just looking for a little something to toy with you could just go very simple and run 100 shot dry. or if you wanted to spend the money and plan on getting more into it later on I would reccommend going with a wet kit right off the bat and you could safely run 150 shot as your car sits right now. Yes a 10 lbs bottle will fit in between the back seats however if you have a 45 degree nozzle on it then it wont be possible so if you want it there you need to make sure your bottle has a 90 degree nozzle.

    run a search to find more about wet kits vs dry.. and all the safety features you will need.

    you could mount the bottle there... but I think most ppl prefer hiding the bottle where the spare tire goes.

    I have the same deal as u... auto tranny & catback exhuast. With a HSWs 100 shot dry kit... my car makes 417whp/467ft-lbs.

    as mentioned earlier... you might want a wet kit if you want more than a 125 shot. Its safer, but harder to install.

    you only have those 2 things and make 417whp/476ft-lbs, thats good to know. i was looking to do about the same when i get one but a few other bolt-ons.

    Money would be better spent on exhaust. Nitrous systems need upgraded exhaust to expel the additional gases.

    Thats 467ft-lbs...
    Be careful of the jet you use with the stock intake...
    My car ran lean at first because the nitrous/air mixture/airflow sucked.

    HSWs changed the jet, got a better/safer mix.
    Definately dynotune for safety. Dry kits arent as safe as the wet ones, but if you do it right... its worth it.

    I know this has been beat to death, but here's my $.02:
    Dry kits are easy to install, easy to tune and can be very stealthy. Be careful with the stock 26lb injectors (1999 & 2000) if you are running a 100shot or more. Make sure you get a window switch and gap your TR6s around .038...
    Wet kits are usually rated at the wheels and take maybe 20 extra minutes to install vs. a dry kit. Fuel puddling can be a problem... Make sure you have a good fuel pump. Invest in a tune...
    Always run good gas and a dedicated fuel-cell is a great idea, but overkill for most set-ups.
    I've sprayed my wet TNT kit on stock, bolt-on, heads/cam and now stroker set-ups and have been smiling the whole time.
