^^are you new?

it all depends on how the cars tuned...ive been running nitrous for about 45k actually. solid 65 shot.

n2o (get it right newbs) is very safe as long as its done right.

dont listen to these clowns. they obviously have no idea what theyre saying.boost can be just as safe. it all depends on how the cars tuned.

If your stupid yes, but if you know how and when to use it and have it set up correctly you wont have any problems.

the safest would probably be a 50hp wet shot with a tune, I've heard of a lot of people with this setup on their cars and no problems, you can go up to 75, but that's a little risky on a stock motor IMO

you will also need to make sure you have a fuel pressure safety switch, wide open throttle switch, a bottle opener "so you can shut off the bottle if a solenoid fails", a set of colder plugs, a tune, and a rpm window switch would also be ideal.

A lot of people get way with out doing most of this.
