How much

How much of a nitrous hit can a more-or-less stock duratec 2.0 take? Assuming one has intake, header, exhaust, and a tune?

Someone I know has nitrous on their accord and it just ain't....floating my boat.

like project2point said, 50-75 shot but only dry. A wet shot could start to give you problems after several sparys.

UMMMM please elaborate on this theroy. I think a dry kit is a dangerous setup, especially on a focus. I just wanted to know why you say dry?

Yeah, everything I've read said dry is NOT the way to go. How would a wet system end up producing problems?

I dont use the giggle gas, but I would go wet shot.... its just safer especially if you have an aftermarket tune thats NOT setup for NO2.... most tunes have more aggressive timing for NA unless specified.

for now, though, I really don't have $5k for a turbo set up, so nitrous is the next best thing :p (of course, I've gotta replace the header, exhaust and tune it first)

:) A wet giggle kit is gonna cost about $500 or so (not including install). A tenth of the money going into said turbo. Plus, I'll probably stroke my 2.0 long before a turbo.

Header: $500, exhaust: $300. At the end of the day, for those two, nos, and a tune, installed, a couple grand. Remember, the first 2 things and a tune are essentials!
