    Thinking about spraying

    I'm really starting to think about sprayin my 98 formula. Current mods are in my sig. I want to just start out with something small (50-75shot) i found a kit on nitrousoutlet.com but would like opinions on it.

    http://www.nitrousoutlet.com/catalog...3&product=2523



    i have never used nitrous before but i do have a couple friends that do use it and know what they are doing with it to help me out with getting it setup. I do have some questions for you guys though. I have heard that if your just running a small shot you don't have to tune for the setup, is that true? How big of a risk is it running a small shot like i plan and is it going to be something that noticable?



    please just give me some opinions/advice!!



    thanks

    do you have a stall converter? If not I'd go with that instead of spray.

    Also may want to add SFC's

    Only stupid question is the one you don't ask. You can't learn if keep quiet. I'm not saying some members won't razz you but you'll at least get an answer.

    SFC= Sub Frame Connectors - this is the one thing our cars need the most. Body flex is not good.
    STB = Strut Tower Brace
    CAI = Cold Air Intake

    i appriciate the help!!

    i'll see how much i can talk the wife into letting me spend to see if i can get the stall or not. All of the suspension and what not will be getting redone next year around this time, and for now the car is basically just a weekend driver, every now and then to work. Just looking to get my best bang for the buck right now

    I understand, My wife is giving me the because I just spent $1100 on some stuff, then our bank notifies us that we have a $1100 shortage, then this past weekend my alternator dies and takes the battery out with it. She knows I want to fix it but I'm having to do some serious kissing right now.

    yeah its really tough for me right now. I am in the Airforce and i just re-enlisted in December, i got a re-enlistment bonus in January which was only supposed to be $4800 after taxes... well i received $9400 instead, i called and they said everything was right.. then a couple days later after i went and bought my formula for $4k they decided that the $9400 was wrong. I told them that was fine because i still had the extra amount, then instead of collecting that extra amount they paid my another $5k... So i have a bunch of money in saving that i have to used to live off since they decided to take my entire paycheck for the next 3 months!!! pretty cool huh? lucky i kept that money in savings!
