Nitrous, quick question?

06 GT with 50,000 miles. Bone stock. What is a safe spray for it that won't cause any real damage? Longterm damage as well? I've heard no more than a 125 shot. Would run a dry shot setup too.

100 is really safe with a tune, and if your going dry, make sure your fuel system is up to par

Okay, great. It's not something that I would do all the time. I drive my car about twice a week on short trips with the kids. I would probably spray once or twice every year if I was at a track or something.

Is there anything I would really need to upgrade with my fuel system, or just simply checking for potential problems? Thanks

Just check, new fuel filter, and make sure your getting good fuel pressure under load, and your injectors should be good as long as your run good gas

Also it's good to change your spark plugs, I ran IGK 2 step colder plugs in my old car with nitrous. I don't know what plugs work with this motor tho

Make sure you get a TPS switch also, that way you spray in only WOT otherwise it can damage your engine.

Wet kit wet kit. IMO dry is like inhaling vodka after running instead of taking a shot.

Re: Nitrous, quick question?

This is just my 2 cents but stay away from the spray yes its quick easy cheep hp. and when everything is working good its great. but when and if something gos wrong its going to cost you money I have seen this stuff blow intake manifolds apart melt pistons ect. Im not saying it will happen to you just understand that it can and that you may not know that you have a problem untill the danage is done.

I think everyone has good advise. It's always best to look at something from every angle and weigh out every pro and con. I just dont know what is worst, spraying every once and a blue moon, or constantly straining from FI of a S/C? If I went S/C, I would run minimal PSI and just like the whine of it. It would be a year or two before I could afford that route though... Decisions, decisions

Re: Nitrous, quick question?

If you are going to only spray once and a while at tracks then go ahead and do nitrous, as long as you have all the safety in place and a good tune you should be fine... If you do get nitrous and later get a SC/TC don't spray with those on, they don't play nice with each other.

Nitrous is safe if done right, ive seen hundreds of cars use it in person and friends, nobody's car ever blew up, only thing I see bad is from YouTube, but you google anything it's always bad, google back pain= cancer

No, dry is safer! Unless you are directly injecting it into your combustion chamber, a wet system will puddle fuel in your intake and tubing and that's what causes intakes to blow apart! I know I have ran a dry 150 shot on a v6 SHO and never had any issues with it. I have also ran it on a thunderbird s/c no problems with it either. Just make sure it's at full throttle when you spray and have fun!
