First off its Nitrous....Naws is a movie term.
Im fairly certain an SPI can handle a WET shot of Nitrous from NitrousExpress.
A wet shot sprays in fuel and nitrous at the same time.
A dry shot sprays in nitrous only while upping the output of the injectors. If you max out an injector you are screwed.
So all in all....lets just stick to the wet shot.

But then you have to decide how you are going to inject it. Through the intake or through the injectors. Nitrous is very tricky if you don't know what you are doing. My opinion, don't mess with it unless you got a motor built for it.

A small shot should be cool, I wouldn't do any over 30 on an unmodded motor. Same thing as everyone says, use wet. Less blowing up your motor.

NOS is not just a movie term. Nitrous Oxide Systems was one of the first companies to offer nitrous kits to the public for street applications.

The only reason people say nos is because it was the sponsor for the first F&TF movie. I challenge anyone to go through 2F2F and find one instance where someone says NOS. They always say nitrous because they switched sponsors to Nitrous Express for the second movie. General car etiquette (according to me) is that you say nitrous. 17 year old kids with civics say NAWZ.

I have seen a ZEX wet system it says no mods needed, I dont know the size of the size of it but it was around $700 for the whole kit. I think it is controlled so if your air/fuel gets to unbalanced it will not blow you to hell and back.
And about the NOS who cares how its said its only a name.

There was a guy on Fj that was running a 75 shot. He tried a 100 shot and scattered the motor from here to Mexico. I still don't recommend the 75 shot. Most of us will still have to make the payments even if it's broken.

Just stick to the 30 unless ur doing some major "racing" but then if u were y would u have a focus and y wouldnt u have mods...j/k do what u want just dont kill ur self and good luck[:D] !!!

The Wet 50 shot on the SPI should hold up just fine!
