What size shot would be used mainly to cool down a turbo setup?

If you are asking about mixing a turbo and nitrous set-up, a simple word of advice, take no offense, but don't do it! It is really advanced stuff and the fueling needs to be spot-on, there are also issues with the turbo bearings and other stuff I won't get into..

Yes, but you are asking ALOT of the stock pistons and con-rods at that point, Also, keeping det. out of the motor is going to reguire one or more solutions ( timing, fuel, etc)

Vinney, I have been looking into getting a nitrous express kit. I have looked on the web-site and read all of the descriptions on the kits. Which one should I go with if I am just looking for a 50shot setup........stage one EFI, Hitman EFI, ???, I am not sure.

Also, is a Gen-X kit worth the money for setting up on a focus????

Finally, can a WOT, Fuel Pressure switch, and an RPM window switch all be hooked up one just one system???

Read, sticky above... Use a wet system, it doesn't need a return line, the fuel and nitrous mix together, trust me that is what you want, they are only a problem in there in case you hit the rev limiter while spraying, That is why I have a rpm cut-off before I hit the rev-limiter..
