Nitrous Questions.

Well, I've got a few questions concerning NO. I've searched, but it may just be easier for everyone with questions all in one place and definitely for me. Here they are:

1. Can you get a NOS for a 2004 v6 Mustang?
A: (Edit) Yes, you can: http://www.mustangevolution.com/articles/20077/

2. What NOS would you prefer for a great price and good (not incredible) quality? (75HP Shots is good)

3. Is Nitrous illegal to have in Arizona? What are the laws here? I searched on the internet, but no definitive answer.

4. At around 00:57, in this video (), vapor comes out of the grill. Is that standard or how would you get that?
Thanks ahead.

Re: Nitrous Questions.

If I'm not mistken, those "vapors" are a nitrous purge. Which, I assume you "purge" the system to get air out of the lines....basically that is a last minute "prime" before a launch. If I'm wrong, hopefully one of the guys with actual knowledge of NOS will correct me.

Re: Nitrous Questions.

Is definitely a purge as a few of my friends have had nitrous on misc cars.

Re: Nitrous Questions.

We'll I've been told that Zex kits are very good because they rate their HP to the real wheels, but then again I've never delt with nitrous. NOS, Nitrous Express, and Zex would be the only 3 kits I would choose or possibly edelbrock, but I haven't heard much about their kits.

I would agree with this as well.

As for the illegal in arizona question, yes, it is. In fact, it is illegal in every state. That doesn't mean people don't do it, but it is not legal to drive around as a bottle hooked up to your car. Cops may or may not be jerks about it. Just don't go purging at red lights or in parking lots and what not.

Re: Nitrous Questions.

I ran a NOS powerfogger kit on my Saturn for years. awesome system. I have about 90% of that kit in my 04 V6 Stang now. I plan to be using a ZEX universail TPS switch with the NOS system.

Re: Nitrous Questions.

You have alot to learn before even thinking about buying any nitrous products. At least you have asked before spending money on a useless kit.

There are two main types of nitrous kits. A dry kit and a wet kit. The difference between the two is the dry kit is simply a nitrous nozzle/ring with no added fuel. In order to properly run a dry nitrous setup you will need a tune to add more fuel to compensate. I would also highly recommend spraying a dry shot before the MAF so it also has time to adjust for the added combustion.

A wet kit is when you have a nozzle that uses both a fuel and nitrous line together to compensate for the added combustion. A wet kit does take a little more work to install, is more expensive, but is the safer of the two systems to use. When the proper jets are installed it is adding the extra fuel you will be needing for the nitrous.

That was an extremely quick rundown for you on the general setups, I would recommend spending several hours talking to a few knowledgeable people on the subject and researching on the internet. When used properly it is a safe and efficient way to add power when you need it, when not used properly it's a good way to get a new engine.
