wet is better because it mixes with the fuel before it enters the engine. dry is more dangerouse because it just sprays into the intake. there isnt the same amount or...the mixture isnt consistant in each cylinder....i almost did the no2 but i was to afraid of breaking something. just be safe...dont run a 200 shot haha.

(ps, did you read the " Nitrous Questions..read here first" thread?)

Search some more, There are many topics. WET is MUCH safer, dont even consider running a dry setup. ALso NX is probably one of the BETTER kits, but I am a bit partial!! .02

same here. I like nx a lot, the fact that nos was the same for years, then changed their parts to be like nx says a lot imo. old nos solenoids were 1/3 the size of nx, now they are all the same. I have owned 3 kits from nx, and have never been let down in any way. Yeah, do some reading, lots to learn. Good luck, nitrous is a LOT of fun

i have about 73000 miles on my car would that affect it, i was thinking a 25 or 50 shot would suffice.

35-50 is what you will normally find to be the smallest and your miles are fine.

its all a matter of opinion....so a wet is the safest but what if your fuel solenoid goes out....then it just sprays nos and boom.......now as for a dry if it goes out it just doesnt spray...it can all be safe/unsafe just dont get a 10 year old kit.... buy all the bells and whistles and dont run too much.....and a new clutch would prolly be a good idea

The wet kit is fine as long as you run a fuel pressure safety switch ( shuts it down if you run outta fuel ).

Good opinions above BTW.. read the nitrous sticky it may help with a few questions.
