Nitrous!!!!!!!
 
Is anyone here using nitrous on their duratecs???

I wanted to hook up some nitrous to my car, do you think a 50 should would be fine or is it too much?? My car is stock btw.(dry shot)

DON'T USE A DRY NITROUS KIT. Several Duratecs have nitrous and 50 shot shouldn't cause you any problems if you know what your doing. I recommend from the "dry shot" that you read this and search around.

get a wet kit... save yourself from having to pick your engine up after blowing it to pieces...

dont go more than 50shot on a regular basis with stock internals some will say 75shot but 50 shot is the safest and best bang for buck..

I am using n2o and havent had any problems yet. Stick with a 50 shot and make sure it is a wet kit.

Ok so if I get a 50hp wet shot with a WOT sensor and a arming switch how often can I safely use it? What are you callin a regular basis?

As many times as you fill your tank with premium and fill your nitrous take. It costs 40 dollars for a nitrous fill so as much as you can afford. If set up properly you could use it forever in short bursts.

ok...i know how a turbo and supercharger works and ive been part of n/a builds in the past(not the focus though)....but how the hell does nitrous work?....i mean in the movies you see people pushing a button down(constantly holding) to use it....is that bs or not.....its my understanding that its used is small.."spurts".....id like a little insight on this.

nitrous(wet >no2 + fuel mixture) is released into the intake, after the maf sensor, by a switch that senses wide open throttle, when depressed the nitrous is released, goes into the chamber, ingnited, exhausted.
