Nitrous on turbo

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.

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.
