I know one other who did a venom system on his 2.3, thing was faster than stink, I think he was running 13's until he sucked down a valve...

umm, if you are serious about this you may want to get the tittainum valve springs from Marcy

I thought nitrous was dangerous in our duratecs because of the flaps in the manifold?

Donít listen to the people telling you its not safe. I spoke with a ZEX rep and they told me all about NOS and how if installed right its perfectly safe. Just donít get the dry system thatís the kit that IS dangerous if not carefully monitored

That is BS.
There is no such thing as safe nitrous.
There are many things you can do to mitigate the dangers of it, but it will never be a safe power adder.

Of course a rep will tell you their product is safe. They are trying to sell you a product and make some money.

The "safest" nitrous system is direct injection. Of coure it cost as much as several normal mods and is usually not worth it.

A small shot is plenty safe. No FI is perfectly safe on stock internals. Some one else said we can only spray past 4700rpms because of the variable runners in the manifold.

yeah thats what i meant by saying its safe. heck even just driving alone isnt "safe". anything you put in your car has the potential to not be safe like\e for example i've heard that for CAI if you go through a large puddle its not safe what so ever. so I was just pointing out that you shouldnt have anything to worry about if its installed properly and you use a moderate amount of boost.
