Yeah, I've never seen it blow an intake apart like that before unless it was plastic and that giant fireball lighting up the other car was impressive too.

NAWS - Proper tuning is mandatory, or else!

Who knows for sure. Trying to activate it that quickly you definitely have to have it properly tuned though.

What plugs are you running I ran NGK tr6 plugs with my wet kit. Go back for a re-tune. Also my car did the same because one of the damn tips from the iridium plugs fell off and the gap was to open.

I don't know the plugs or heat ranges for your car, but you want a plug that may be 1-3 heat ranges colder than your stock plugs. To get the right plug you will have to make a WOT run with nitrous, shut the engine off at the end of the run then remove and "read" the plugs to determine whether or not they are suitable. You should be able to find a plug reading chart through Google search for comparison.

Also don't forget you need to ****** the timing a bit too. How much will depend on what is recommended for your engine and the amount of nitrous you are using. An aftermarket timing ****** would be a great addition and you could set it to only ****** when the nitrous is activated so you don't have to drive around with the timing retarded all the time.

Good luck and be safe.

For a GT the tr6 are good and what I like to do is pull 1 degree for every 25hp on the shot (100shot I pull 4 and for a 150 I pull 6 to 8 depending on the fuel. But its all in the tune my tuner/friend likes to pull 8 degrees on 150shots while i only did 6 thats why I have yet to see any of the cars he has tuned get messed up because he is very conservative when it comes to tuning.

Yeah sounds about right but check your AFRs when you drive around and spray some times you might lean out a bit. If I were you I would run the jets for a 125shot on the fuel only and the 100 on the gas thats what I would do on a self tune that you don't know the afr just to make sure its not leaning when you spray. My fox would run very rich with a 200shot so I put a 250shot gas jet and the 200shot fuel jet and the afr at wot with the spray was perfect even netted a extra 16hp and 33tq. When they dyno your car they check the afr or just buy one if you self tune best investment you can make imo.

That's what we needed, some "real life" examples. Thanks!

It sure does graphically show what can happen without a proper tune or when something just plain goes wrong.

I've always been against nitrous but if tuned rite its instant horsepower. But everytime you put it threw your engine your doing damage

I ran a turbo/nitrous set-up with no problems made mid 800s with boost alone never dynoed with the 150shot but should have been in the high 900s low 1000s with nearly no turbo lag with a 88mm so its just the people not the product thats the error.

It does as much damage as a turbo or supercharger since it does the same basic thing adds more air and fuel just that it on when you need it. I have seen a bolt on mustang blow because of a bad tune and a nitrous fox with just a swist of a distributor run with out problems.
