    Question What Set Up Would Be Right For Me?

    Hey guys, let me start out by saying I know absolutely nothing when it comes to nitrous oxide systems. With that said, I have a 02 WS6. As of now, I have K&N, lid, Dynatech Header Exhaust System, Borla Cat-Back, Granatelli, Thermostat 160 degree and a few other minor things. Within the next 4 months I will be putting Patriot Heads (stage II), cam, rockers, springs,(and all the other little essential things) FAST LSX Intake Manifold, Throttle Body, and Fuel Rail Kit (all 90mm). I also plan on doing some suspension work too.


    After I get done with all the mods that I plan on doing in the next few months, I plan on running a nitrous system. My question for yall is what would be the most beneficial system for me to run on my set up and what could i expect from it? I want to run a direct-port system... so if yall could help a fellow LS1 'brother' out, Id really appreciate it! ! !


    Thanks- Corona

    The Nitrous Express NXL system is pretty cool. You should look at it.

    The Nitrous Express NXL PN 20220 GM LS series kit is rated from 80-250hp. And it's well known NX rates in rwhp.

    ok, reread what he's been getting for answers from NX. it comes with 180 rwhp jets. you can buy 250rwhp jets. even they are steering him away from it.

    All I suggested was for him to look at the NXL because it's a very nice system. My second reply was just saying it will go higher than 180rwhp. I'm not disagreeing with the advice he has been getting. As long as he stays with NX, he'll have made the correct choice.

    and you did nothing wrong with suggesting it. it's a fine product. i guess i worded my last post a little wrong it shouldv'e read I went back and read what he's been getting feedback wise. my statement wasn't directed at you.

    well i guess i will be the honest one hear.. dont run a 150 or a 200 shot on your motor unless you are planning on buying a new motor. be safe stick with a 100 shot.. besides a 100 shot will get you about 125 at the tires and over 100 lbs of torque... stay away from alot unless your shits built for it

    Anything less than 150 shot is a tail wind.

    You can run up to 150 shot on a stock car. My transAm has handled it very well and it pulls hard.

    It means I'm aggressive with nitrous. It's just a running joke between friends. I'm not exactly the poster child for conservative/safe tunes. Stick to what these guys are telling you.
