wet kit is the way to go. all those brands have safe kits, you just have to make sure you have it installed right, and not let your finger stray too often to that little red button

Agreed^^^^ I really prefer the wet kits as well. As long as it is properly installed and the shot is reasonable. Nitrous can be very safe....The big hits are for built engines, but a stock motor can live with the smaller hits... Also, read the Nitrous sticky above it may answer some of your questions...NOS and NX build almost the same stuff.. I have been using NX for a while now, just to answer your next question...lol
