Can i handle NOS?

98 GT with 140k miles. If I decide to get nitrous I'll have full exhaust and bolt ins before doing it.
Is this too risky or could my car handle it?

First of its Nitrous or N2O, not "Naaawwws"... NOS is a brand just like Nitrous Express, Nitrous Works etc... Ok now that my OCD tick is satisfied, if your motor is in good shape and if you have a good custom tune there is no reason you can't run a nice shot of the sauce. You'd be better off doing a PI swap though.

Sorry haha. In person I say nitrous. Could I handle it after PI swap? Or no cause of higher compression?

Just do 75 shot tops to be on safe side

Depends on his compression and condition of his motor etc... And if you read I did say he'd be fine with a good tune if his motor is in good shape. And he WOULD be better off with the PI swap as far as bang for the buck.

OP, the PI swap will do nothing to make you handle more nitrous, it will just make your motor all around better.

IMO, bottles are for babies, real men get blown.

I thought I couldn't run boost after PI swap?

I was looking into piecing together a vortech but that $1500 piece together doesn't include fuel system which costs a lot

Why not? The PI heads came stock in the newer sn95's and are boosted all the time.

He has a NPI bottom end, he'll be running around 10.5/1 with PI heads. You CAN still boost but you need an intercooler and need to keep it pretty low.

And yeah, guys have done $1500 including fuel and a self tune but that was back when you could get used headunits for a reasonable price. The word is out on piecing together your own kit.

A good option for ppl who want to supercharge a NPI car is to do the PI cams and PI intake and either find SVO heads or just boost the NPI heads. Its a known fact that most of the PI power is locked up in the cams/intake.

I know of a guy that goes to Bay Area racing and has nitrous on his stretched busa. That thing is crazy.
