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.

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.

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.
