50 Shot enough??????

Will a 50 shot of nitrous make a considerable difference? I mean will it just be a little boost or will it put me in my seat????
Thnx for any input.

It's a matter of opinion....either way 50 shot is what you should start out at and then go from there.

why do people feel the need to put 6 question marks after their questions when one would do the exact same thing?????????!

yes, you will feel the difference. Consider this... a factory stock focus puts about 100whp down, you're essentially getting 50% more than that with the "push of a button" also consider that a $4k jrsc system will net you about the same amount. 50 shot with good driving will get you anywhere from half to a full second at the drag strip. It is noticeable. go wet kit. place it about 4" from the tb, it'll kick harder.

Yes, it feels about like an instatant v6 at the push of a button, not crazy, but noticeable, and as said above, start with 50, its safe and an easy place to start, and about all the stock tires can handle anyway

good point, before doing ANY go fast mods, for god sake get some good tires. going fast is great, but the only thing that is ultimately important is traction and stopping. stock tires blow, get at least some cheapo z rated rubbah.

Sounds like some forged turbo pistons and maybe even doing the bottom end are in order, too..And make sure that fuel map is PERFECT!
