Is Nitrous a Bad Thing?

Really starting to look into nitrous.. A power adder would be great but I've been told nitrous can be super safe with a good tune and a behaved foot.. Somebody chime in? Wanted a 75-100 shot. What all would I need. Fuel pump? Clutch? Injectors? Is a purge system a must? Really confused about how it all works. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Stock motor can handle a 100 shot. Run a wet shot. Not sure what all you'll need. Others will chime in.

And also, is a pressure gauge needed? What about a bottle heater?

Thanks for the help. I know the motor will hold. With a hundred shot it should be about 430ish RWHP. But the clutch won't hold much and it's the stock clutch..

Nitrous sysTems are very safe now compared to the old days. You will need a few more items once you buy the main kit. This is a good kit on eBay.

ZEX Nitrous Accessory Kit Purge Heater Gauge More | eBay

Also, read this info on AM site. It will give you a good insight.

How to Install a Zex Wet Injected Nitrous System on Your 2005-2010 Mustang GT

I'm thinking of the same thing and have been looking into all the different systems.

Also with that much rwhp I would go with a stage 1 clutch and a one piece drive shaft.

Im going to school right now to be a auto tech and in a high performance class asked teachers about my 07gt running nitrous they all said that i had a good motor and my car could handle up to 100 shot no problem but did recommend a true wide band 02 sensor, copper core spark plugs colder 1 degree, a bottle warmer, purge kit, boost gauge nitrous is very safe now but i was warned to stay away from nitrous plates...

Would I need a clutch with a 75 shot? Is a bottle warmer a must? Also, I got a quote from my Dyno shop and the price he gave me for installation and a tune was $660ish. Is that a fair price?

No your clutch should be fine.... If its less then a 100 shot and a bottle warmer is kinda a must i mean you can run it without it but you will make it easier for the nitrous to come out with a bottle warmer and also get more shots out of your bottle with a warmer..

Mmm i have no clue as far as dyno time and tune pricing lol because we have a Dyno here at school we can use lol

Electronic bottle openers are more of a luxury lol

---------- Post added at 10:39 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:37 PM ----------

Bottle openers are more like a luxury lol you could always get out of the car pop the trunk and open your bottle but at the same time its cool to have the power to instantly open the bottle with the flip of switch and race someone

So if I wanting to randomly race somebody I would have to pop the trunk and open to bottle? Like every time? When do I turn it off? Lol I'm confused as hell

Dont worry i was just as confused as you where lol nitrous kits are simple but can also be very complicated but ive seen alot of people mount bottles behind there rear seats that fold down to open their nitrous bottles from inside the car... But basically yes you would have to open your bottle by hand if you do not have a electronic bottle opener... And just close the bottle when your done.... Ive spent a lot of time researching and talking to people running nitrous to figure all this out lol... Whats really cool is a window switch which basically turns on the nitrous at a certain RPM and Turns it off an a set RPM you decide like if you only want your nitrous to come on like 3000 to 4000 RPM ...

I was lost on nitro till i started reading about here. I pictured a bottle opener in your hand like a beer being opened. Twenty minutes later and I am alot more educated on the subject(Thank you google), not sure my boss is keen to how i am working right now now but he will survive.

If you guys have seen the first Fast and Furious movie with the first drag race, Vin Diesel had a nice little nitrous setup underneath the passenger seat, check it out.

Or you can always get a WOT plate, but window switches are just as effective.

Hey guys I have to say all of you have a good idea of what nitrous is all about... I own a 00' gt and run n20 on it so if you have any questions pm me and ill answer gladly when I have the chance. But I'm also here to assure you that the anxiety can go away because its so safe and easy a three year could do it...

To me the money could go to a different cause. I just don't see many benefits beside the obvious. Seems dangerous and costs a lot.
