Nitrous, worth it?

4.0 mustang, manual, single flowmaster 40/cutouts... I was considering a 50 or a 75 shot of NOS at most. Is this mod worth it? Has anyone done this to a similar car? Any feedback would be appreciated!

I'm trying to figure out if it's worth it for such a small amount of boost, but I don't want to do 100 or more, I'm scared I'll blow the motor up...

Re: Nitrous, worth it?

im against it just because i was in the place you are and i realized that if you give to big a shot you will hurt the car in one way or another.

go for something else to add power. go for a supercharger instead

Its expensive ( you may not think so but when all is said and done you will be thinking... why didnt I just go with a blower)

Its illegal to use on a public highway

Overtime its not great for the engine

To much hassle with it for a DD... for a track car sure though

Ive used Nitrous for years. no problems just dont be a dumb with it. use non platinum plugs 1-2 steps colder and 91 or better fuel. what ever system you get, make sure it uses a wot or tps switch.

Yeah, you have to think about what you intend to use it for and how often.
Some show. Some go.
