So I'm currently running 13 pounds on stock block. 13 pounds is where the turbo ran out of steam, that is why I don't just up the boost.
I'm considering adding nitrous on top of the turbo. Not a large shot...maybe 50 or 75. Can anyone offer advice? Advantages, disadvantages, etc?
Before anyone feels the need to go into it (though I'm sure someone will), I know tuning is important. Also, I know about wet v. dry. My kit is a wet kit. Tom is my tuner.
Now, any help is greatly appreciated.

I would just spend the money on a bigger turbo. It will at least save you trips to fill up the bottle.

I already have the nitrous kit w/ accessories.

my friend's focus back home, stock, pushed 50 just bolting on and no tuning...though 75 might be pushing it idk i havnt seen done...but it might be possible...

Lighten your car
[screwy] Thanks for the awesome info. I feel thoroughly schooled on the use of jetting nitrous while boosting.
Now, since my car is already gutted...

i would invest some money in your internals first like a aset of eagle rods that would be the weak point of you engine if something were to go wrong then shoot 50 wet style and get tom to send you a kickass tune

Yeah i agree with badass, 211whp on stock internals is fine, but 50-75 shot of nos might break something, esp on the SPIs, not sure how different there internals are compared to Duratecs or Zetecs. But you should def look into upgrading your internals, then bro youd be just fine, except maybe a new clutch eventually, lol.

i think he already has a clutch with turbo going 13pounds and pulling 211...(probably im mistaken) [dunno]..... for one if you get nitrous with your turbo not only do you need to go with internal work because you have a single cam stock block but, your gonna have to end up buying a bigger turbo either way because with nitrous and and the turbo you have you will over work the turbo,oh and with nitrous/turbo it's always good to do a fuel system. but other than that if you want nitrous yeah go for it is your car [headbang] ...my opinion is if your boost and you've spent your money on boost then go all boost and no juice... becuase when your turbo and you put nitrous it'll mostly work for your spool time so sell the nitrous kit and turbo and with the money you get from both buy yourself a bigger turbo [;)]

I wish I could upgrade the internals, but I know a guy that did and he spun that rod as well. We don't have a lot of options for forged internals.
I do have a Spec stage 2 clutch. I have 39# injectors and upgraded fuel pump.
I would like a bigger turbo, but right now I'm at full boost by 3000 rpms. Can you recommend a turbo that will have me at full boost early enough to warrant the upgrade?
Maybe I should not bother... :(

what turbo r u running? also i would even do a 50 shot on top the turbo. i think stock internals can only hold about 250 wheel.
