Wanting to go nitrous and want to know stuff.

I was looking into nitrous because it seems to add decent power, at not too much of a price.

Where should I look at getting a nitrous kit?
How much would it be?
Is it worth it?
How hard is it to install?
Wet or dry?
What do I all need? Anything I need to upgrade?
Anything else I should know? I don't really know much about nitrous.

I know that these are a lot of questions, but even if you only know one answer, that is fine! I just want to start saving up for nitrous and I want to know answers before I dive in. Thanks!

I would look at CFM. Look for the Nitrous Express Kit.

It should cost a bit more than $600.

I love Nitrous on Mustangs, I'm sure you will enjoy it. It is just what it is though, a temporary boost. Many who frequent a track will tell you just to turbo cause it's always there. I have been on a track twice ever, and just like pulling out the spray from time to time.

It is pretty easy to install.

WET WET WET WET!

Get a Fuel Rail adapter from CFM or Massive so you can get your fuel enrichment from your fuel rail. Colder Range sparkplugs A nitrous tune is also recommended. With anything up to a 75 shot, you shouldn't need any other upgrades.

So if I bought this:
http://focus.c-f-m.com/nitrousexpres...t-35-75hp.aspx

Would I need anything additional to make it work?
Would this bottle come filled already?

I know how to get colder spark plugs, and a nitrous tune, but I don't really know how to get the fuel rail adapter or anything like that. I'm not familiar at all with the installation.

I also found this thread, which used this same kit it looks like:
http://www.musclemustangfastfords.co...web/index.html

So would that bottle come filled? Would that kit be ALL I need?

Wow, that is a pretty nice thread there! Thanks!

But I still am looking for answers to my previous questions.

And also, anyone out there actually have nitrous?
What did you all get and how did you install it?
Which of the following kits would you recommend for ease and reliability?
http://focus.c-f-m.com/nitrousexpres...t-35-75hp.aspx
http://focus.c-f-m.com/zexuniversal5...idesystem.aspx

I think that replies from people who actually have dealt with nitrous would be great!

IM not an expert but im gonna say it does not come filled just because i doubt they would ship an explosive bottle with out alot of pain in the ass costs.

How did you go about installing it? Do you have a tune or anything? How long have you had it?

Most of what the install involves is running the Nitrous and fuel lines to the solenoids. I have only done nitrous on a 87 Mustang 5.0 so I'm a limited amount of help I guess.
