Nitrous?

Alright, when I get my car paid off, hopefully by Christmas, I'm gonna have a little money to spend on it. What I want to do is get a hypnotic tune with the new SCT programmer with the datalogging ability AND get Nitrous...maybe a 50 shot or less if they make them smaller. Seems like I've seen a few 30 shots with adjustability to 50 and 75. What do you guys think about this? I know the basics about nitrous and I know there is a risk involved if you don't know what you're doing with it. I want honest opninions here, do you guys think nitrous is a good way to go or not? The reason I am posting in the SVT section and not forced induction is I want opinions from SVT owners....nothing against the other foci, but I would rather people with SVTF's post on this matter since if I do this it will be on my daily driver SVTF.

Yeah im thinking about doing nitrous just for fun im interested as well but i'll prolly be doing a 75shot.. i think nitrous is a fine way to go but not for daily use proly once in a while and keeping a close eye on internals to make sure everything is running smoothly. You also have to keep up maintaince i believe such as spark plugs and things like that. A friend of mine has been running alot of nitrous in his car but he does have an integra iono if the reliability factor on the motor is involved in how his car is fine.

I wouldn't be using it much at all. I would like to get a kit that used the TPS for activation and have it set up to kick in at WOT or maybe 3/4 throttle. So I wouldn't be using it daily, it would be going on my SVTF that I drive every day though.

Sorry, what was Nitrous again?...... dang, sorry couldn't resist! It's 3:30 over here in louisiana, and I'm quite the delirious ff right now.

I'd say that if you know what you're doing, a NOS install could be quite beneficial and really fun! DO it...

Nobody has any reason for their no votes??? From the poll it doesn't look like many people have an opinion of N20.

I say go for it! If, I end up modding the crap out of this little car like I did my stang then I'm looking into a ZEX or NX kit. My first choice would be a good blower but N2O seems like more fun on a little car like ours. If, you go the nitrous route then make sure you get all the recommended accessories and not just the standard purchase kit. Things will work better if you go the distance......

More than likely due to the fact that those folks that use N2O frequent the Forced Induction Chat.
I'll gladly move this to those forums if you'd like.

Well, I guess you can go ahead and move it since nobody seems to be posting here. I just thought I would get the input of other SVTF owners on using N20 since that's what I have...different results and install requirements between the SVTF and the normal focus I'm assuming. But go ahead and move it and see what the FI regulars think. :)

You can probably blame our 10.2:1 compression ratio for the lack of Nitrous users.
I'll move this, and hopefully you'll get some more feedback.
Thanks.
