    Nitrous Oxide, when installed and used properly, does no more wear and tear to your car then running shitty 87 octane pump gas. If n2o itself fucked motors up, do you think they would have ran it in planes in wwII?

    Yeah exactly it does no more damage to your car, than running 87 octane when your car needs 91 or 93. Nitrous does a lot of damage, even companies who make nitrous products will warn you of the severe damage that their product can and will do to your car. It also depends on how much you shoot and how often you do it, but trust me it will take the life out of your motor. I know so many people who bought nitrous 2 or 3 years ago, who now have blown motors or are on their next rebuild, and are not running nitrous systems.

    nitrous = more air.
    more air = need fo rmore fuel

    if you don't give it the right amount of more fuel, you lean the fuck out and go boom

    nitrous, like anything else, just needs to be done right. If your motor is leaning out every time you push the button, yeah, it's going to ruin your motor
