Question Nitrous and Diablo tune

I plan on buying either an Edelbrock or ZEX nitrous system for my 2000 zx3 (50hp). I have heard your not supposed to use nitrous kits with a previous chip install (or retune).

Is this true?
If not would I have any problems with a 'general' tune for my car with nitrous?

My car is a daily driver and will use the nitrous rarely, and I would like to get a diablo tune as well for my car.

Wouldnt haveing the chip tuned for a nitrous kit mess up 'all motor' performance while not using nitrous?
Would a nitrous tune be bad for a daily driver?

A chip is used to advance the timing. Which is very bad if you plan on doing nitrous. You'll spark before the intake valve is closed and possibly cause a the nitrous to backfire into the intake mani causing a lot of problems ie: detonatioooooon. *kablooie*

Correct ^^ Mostly... There are specific tunes for nitrous, but like said above a generic tune will advance the timing for power, which is not a good idea with nitrous. If you are going to spray it, get the tune out of there or have it replaced with a specific nitrous tune ( depending upon which "chip" you have )
