NITROUS ON 05 zx3

I havnt seen many threads about nitrous being used. Has any body used it on a stock motor? How big of a shot would be save?

NNNNIIIIICCCEEEE!!!!

I'm installing a 50 shot on my stock motor. I think some members are using a 75 shot, but that pretty much the limit for my comfort on stock internals.

this is from the stickied threads right above your post:

Nitrous Questions..read here first.

tons of good info there. 50would be the highest id go on a wet kit without a tune. 75 or 100 are doable after assuming you have all the gear

If I use a dry kit, do i need to up grade the injectors? Im looking only to use a 35 shot or a 50 shot at most. Ive use a Zex kit on my ef civic I had. It worked out great with a 50 shot. Im just not use to the newer carS. Do i need to play with the ECU? Ive had my tuner mess with my tune with his SCT already. Thanks for the link to that thread.
