What equipment you need depends on your et. If your nitrous bottle is within the driver compartment you must have a blow off vented to outside of the vehicle.

Here are some basic rules for the NHRA "street legal" drags -
What do I need to participate?*
Check with your local NHRA member track for its requirements, but generally, you can expect to need the following:


A valid driver's license
Valid vehicle registration and insurance
DOT-approved street legal tires
Seat belts
Muffler
If using nitrous, nitrous-oxide bottles must be stamped as meeting DOT 1,800-pound standards


and other info can be found at http://www.nhra.com/tech_specs/ETQuickRef.html
