    I was reading a magazine and I saw the word "NOS " as listed for a modification. And I started to thinking. If you use the word as an acrynom it would be technically correct, Nitrous Oxide System, even though you dont have the Holley brand. But if you out right just said NOS as in, " I have NAWZ," it would be rice, right?
    I guess the question is, is it rice to just say NOS even if you dont have the Holley brand?

    technicalities, technicalities......if you look at it, nx is a nitrous oxide system, so every nitrous setup could be considered nos. its like saying "i have headers" and being considered "ricy" just because you didn't call it by its name brand. to me it really doesn't make a difference.

    just my 2 cents

    No, what's rice is saying, "I have headers" on a 4-cylinder.

    No matter what brand it is, I refer to it as "nitrous".

    if you have a runny nose, do you ask for tissue or kleenex? i always say kleenex, even tho it's another brand. the whole deal is, who cares.

    for a while, it seemed to make you 'true jDm' if you made fun of people who said naaaws instead of nitrous. i was like that.

    now i really don't care. i know what people are talking about. why try to make myself look 'oh so much more knowledgeable' .

    really. who cares..

    That was my point. Who gives a shit? But then again, there are some people who always gives negative feed back.

    This topic just came to mind when i saw someone get flamed for spelling nitrous wrong.

    Anyway, to each his own.

    You aren't considered 'ricy' by anyone for not calling your header by whatever brand it is. You're considered 'ricy' or unknowledgable because Hondas only have a header, not header(s)...

    Exactly.

    And reading the 30 second F and F rendition made me have an epiphany... F and F kinda reminds me of porn... There's no real plot, and everything you're supposed to enjoy looking at is completely fake. :lol:
