nitrous

i called nitrous express and n.o.s. today and they
told me that i can spray a 75 shot
wet on the 2.0 duratec with no problems.
Now my question is can the internals really hold
a 75 shot with no problem like the guys said.
is anyone out there spraying a 2.0 duratec
please give me some feed back guys.

that is that size shot that comes on the saleen focus. and they do no internal work so yes it is safe. BUT the second you hit the button your WHOLE warrenty is VOID over gone nodda.

If there is any major warranty work, he never had spray.

If you are worried about your warranty, nitrous is not for you. The general rule of thumb, around these parts anyways, is that most modern engines can handle half of what they put out. Safety is the key, just strap a bottle on there and go and you'll blow. Get a window switch, run cold plugs and high octane, and you'll more than likely be ok. Hitting the bottle out of the hole is more than enough to break most any parts, including the engine. Just be reasonable and 75 will be ok. I ran a 75 shot on the zetec for a year or so, it's a real kick in the pants. Once you start, you can't stop.

Yeah, what he said ^^^ LOL

The big trick to nitrous being safe is taking the time to do it right. ALWAYS run the good gas , run colder plugs, etc etc etc... Do it right.

^^ What these guy's said and don't spray below 3K and never hit the rev limiter on spray.
If you don't have a window switch of course. .
Also, you may want to start a bit lower than 75 to get used to the extra power and work your way up. I was satisfied with 50 for a long time.

Just out of curiosity, how much work is involved in adding Nos to a car? Presumably it's extensive work, no? Also, I assume it's not very friendly on the wallet?

nitrous is pretty cheap. if you think about bang for the buck its better than turbo/supercharger. they only major beef i have with nitrous is that you have to know some one whoe knows this guy whos got this dog who knows where to get n2o tanks filled. the nearest place around here is and hour and a half away plus you need to kiss his butt to do it. I had my zex kit installed by a tuner shop. i wouldn't reccomend doing it yourself. plus if something goes wrong you can always blame it on them!
