    What is the diffrence between Wet Nos and Dry Nos

    Hi I was very interested in adding a nos kit to my LS1 I wanted to see what the diffrences are between the two and which one is better. I was thinking a 100 shot.

    It refers to whether the nitrous passes through the manifold or not. Its a wet kit if it goes through the manifold. If it dry, it will be directly injected, after the manifold.

    incorrect. it's whether or not the FUEL is injected with the nitrous before the throttle body, or if only nitrous is injected before the throttle body.

    wet = nitrous and fuel through the nozzle before the throttle body.

    dry = only nitrous through the nozzle before the throttle body.

    neither is any safer than the other.

    Dang...I was close. Err--I mean...Thats what I meant to say.

    I'm retarded...I'll go back to the non-Nitrous sections now.

    Ok wet is safer then dry due to the fact that it will inject gas and nirtous into the intake rather then just dry nitrous which your computer has to add the gas, alot more can go wrong with a dry....Take a look at the NX kit really high quality stuff evrything you want in a system...

    allot of stuff can go wrong with a wet kit aswell like a fuel noid getting stuck and dont forget that backfires are usually nastier with a wet kit sure a tune can help you with backfires but not with the noids

    Make sure to get a tune and will help prevent this, I have just always heard good things about a wet vs the dry...And so far I love the NX wet kit so thats all im sayin....

    neither one is safer than the other..things can wrong with either set up. the only benefit from wet/dry is that you'll be able to run a higher shot safer with a wet kit.
    u should get tuned for juice wether if you install a wet kit or a dry kit and you'll want to make sure that your fuel system is up to the task of the extra hit...ie: injectors/fuel pump etc.

    just got off the dyno with a wet kit and it runs amazing! however im changing to a dry because when the shot gets activated it takes teh fuel about half a second to catch up with the nitrous and runs very VERY lean. itwas running 14.3-14.4:1 which is about to explode! hahaah!

    anyways once the fuel catches up it runs great 11.3-11.5 ratio all the way to red line... but im converting so it wont lean out. it feels like the car falls right on its face, then takes off very hard... tried to jump off the dyno!

    well ive always been a wet kit guy, but now im converting. p.s. on a dry hit i recomend upping the injectors with a serious shot 150+ to compensate for the loss of fuel being injected on a wet kit.
