who is successfully using N2O on their PZEV?

reason i ask is because the dude at my a local speed shop was saying that i need to do some research about the intake manifold on the pzev before adding nitrous. because if it has a dual runner intake, it can cause nitrous puddle and do lots of damage to the motor. also seeing as the intake is a synthetic plastic of some type, it seems easy to destroy the intake...
any info would be greatly appreciated!!

thanks,
russ

Haven't used mine yet since it needs some final hookup...but it came with NOS and I got a few pics on my page of the setup...

Sorry I can't be of more help...when I get it hooked up I'll let you know

(Needs a switch and something else that they dont hook up until I decide to since it voids the warranty)

Is this a 2.3 or 2.0?

Think about it for a minute and remember that not everyone is responsible enough to handle it

Not to mention being its the first time a car has com from the factory with nos(as far as I know) they are probably being extra cautious.

I guess it really doesn't bug me...I planned on "voiding" the warranty anyways by ripping out the exhaust
