    No, that's only if he misuses it. You can run nitrous safely on a stock engine if you install it correctly and have it set to spray at the right time.

    Fuck that, it isn't the cheapest in the long run. You're gonna have to refill the bottle $$$.

    Turbo would be the cheapest, not from the start but in the long run it's just more efficent (worth the extra dough) and cheaper in the long run.

    I have a ungodly hate for nitrous, no matter what brand. It's just me, I'm not saying it's a waste but I wouldn't use my money on it.

    bah, bill ran a 60 shot on his CX motor - all 70 hp of it - for like 3 or four full bottles before he swapped it out for the ls build- NEVER detonated, pulled it- it was running mint.

    zex kits are good for small power levels

    the cash can be used in a much better way. Some cams and a mild P&P would be much more wrorthwhile in my opinion

    nobody said longrun, as far as bang for buck from stock motor nitrous is the way, use it enough and being trigger happy........you'll get melted pistons.


    the name of the game is - you have to pay to play.

    If you want to make the motor stall, go ahead.

    BB Guns run off of CO2

    We are talking about N2O

    At any rate....

    Nitrous is the least expensive per HP gained.

    I ran 120 shot on my LS engine for 2 years, no problems. Only after going "Turbo" did I end up with a shot block.
