Cool Wet VS Dry Nitrous Oxide setup

Hey guys im putting a nitrous oxide setup in my 2014 v6, 3.7 and im concerned about the saftey of my car. It is on a lease, i know my warranty is voided i don't care im buying it out at the end. The main concern I have is wether its safer to go dry or wet kit. I have done alot of homework on Nitrous and from what i can see if not set up properly, both can be dangerous. Fortunate for me I have a guy who specializes in this stuff but im looking for second opinions. If you have Nitrous leme know your experience and if your **** as blown up I wana know why and what kit you used. My two choices right now are a "Gym Bag System" Dry kit, or a Wet kit. Im looking to spray a 75 shot, nothing crazy because I want to ensure the life of my engine, and or Intake manifold. Appreciate it guys all advice is welcome from people with experience.

Current Mods:
3.73 Gears
Intake
Tune

Mods to go:
Throttle Body
Full exhaust
Strong Driveshaft
MGK Short throw
Wider wheels and better grade tires.

+1 on what he said ^

Most people usually do a wet kit though.

Well wet mixes with gas so if you are not dialed in right it will create a much bigger explosion. Both are safe if they are set up and dialed in right. Both are nasty if they backfire due to improper setup. I would stay dry personally because it is easier to install and tune. Dry is also cheaper. I guess it depends on how much you want to spend, what your HP goals are and if you have somewhere to have the car setup and tuned properly. Dyno tune it. If anyone doesnt want to dyno it and says it will be fine dont do it. Dial it in and get it right.

appreciate the info fellas I did send in a PM to the guy you suggested, also as far as dyno tuning it I have a guy who can do it hes got a lot of exp with nitrous, his nickname ive heard is actually "nitrous Pete" and hes a dealer for a couple companys like Compucar, NOS, and one other one i forget. I feel safe with him hes done good work to my car before but of course like I said my concerns are safety, my new car blowing up is not an option, Ive also taken the initiative to obtain a controller and a bottle heater to further improve safety.

With a dry system you are relying upon the computer to recognize the added oxygen and send more fuel through the injectors. I prefer the wet system and adding the fuel at the same time as the nitrous; just seems safer to me and is what Lidio suggested on my 2006 for safety.

With a dry system the nozzle placement is also very important. You would want it to feed into the intake as direct as possible. If the nos when sprayed has to fight with air intake turbulence iit will throw the mixture off nearly every time and that could lead to backfires and inconsistent response. If you are going dry a throttle body plate injection work really well but are more expensive than the shark nozzle system. Just be sure your installer (or you) chooses the best spot if going with the nozzle type. Jim is correct on the wet system but the computer controls air intake and regardless the tune would be dialed in for the nitrous mix. The key is to have the mix to be the same every time. A wet system is superior for that. If you went dry the Nozzle would be after the maf.

Apparently rapinator126 is the man on nitrous. After speaking with him on forums here, he is a huge fan of nitrous and is highly knowledgeable about it. I'm sure he will chime in here soon. Lol

I'm assuming you do a good bit of track racing which is why you want a nitrous system?

I've always ran dry kits before the maf. Wet kits after. Either way I highly recommend dyno time to get it dialed in properly.

Depends on the setup I guess you dont want to run lean. I havent seen it run before but I am sure it is possible because you have had that setup.

The MAF doesn't add fuel based on measuring the extra oxygen from the nitrous. You either need to either run a complete system which adds fuel by shutting off the return line, increasing fuel pressure, or you need to run a wet kit that adds fuel itself.

Wait for the nitrous guru to get here or PM him. Keep us posted.
