    my vote goes HSW wet. if you plan on going over 100 shot, with a wet all you need to do is change jets. with a dry, you'd most likely have to upgrade injectors and maybe pump to supply the injectors.

    HSW is on many boards as advertisers, including this one.

    HSW Dry kit here....

    Both NX and HSW are good places to deal with. I went with HSW because they had some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. Matt@HSW was/is very helpful.

    NX is still probably one of the highest quality kits but HSW, dynotune, CF, tnt, etc are all top notch as well. Most of the vendors are more than willing to answer your questions and help you out. Regardless if you bought their kit or not.

    In terms of quality, I have hardly heard any complaints about any of the kits mentioned. I made my decision purely from customer service and HSW was having a sale on their kits. Up until that point, I was still trying decide what kit I wanted. The sale HSW was having made the decision a lot easier.

    This of course, is just my personal experience.

    NX

    I've been fuc_ing with different kits for 10 years and I can say I've had the least problems with their solenoids. Not to mention when they say 150hp it's 150hp tp the wheels not 127 on the dyno .
    Not to mention they have the sickest controller on the market right now called the MAXIMIZER...........Done by FJO Racing... http://www.nitrousexpress.com/Pages/Maximizer2.htm
    I would check them out for sure!!!!!! DRY kit would be something I would put on a rental car for the weekend not my own personal car!! To risky.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I agree...NX all the way! Never had one prob. Run 150 wet...all my friends are running NX...run what everyone else is running around your area so if you have probs you can have good support team runing the same kits.

    My friend just bought an HSW dry and he seems to think it will be great. We will have to wait a month to find out!

    Either company is good, but I know 8 people in San Diego that all run NX and none of us have any real probs to speak of!

    I'm using HSW with a 200 shot. I've had one problem with my intake, but changed over to an LS6, kept an eye on my 6,7 & 8 plugs, and I've been trouble free for the last 10 bottles. Runs great, I love that kick in the ass when it hits, and love the look on the faces of those who think they're going to eat my TA for lunch.

    I run Cold Fusion and never had any problems. But I have always heard NX is the way to go. I run wet also.
