Default Nitrous Question

Well I searched but didn't find what I was looking for. So here goes. I got an 2001 5 Speed. How safe / unsafe would a 50 shot of nitrous be to run on it. I was given a Zex kit the 50 - 75. I've dynoed at 128 hp at the wheels. I've read where the hp on this engine should not go past 200 hp. Looking for some insite. Thanks in advance.

Hopefully MX-5 will reply to this for you. But here is my humble opinion. I would think it should be ok. I have been planning to put a 50 shot in my 03 auto. however if you want to pass on that great deal on the zex kit to someone else... wink wink nudge nudge.

I believe MX-5 has a 75 shot of the good stuff. It is the kit that you should use I hope he chimes in on. I know he says there is only one made for the Cruiser.

The kit made for the pt is: NitrousWorks by Barry Grant™ #13097
that is the kit that he used. He also reccomended to me getting a bottle heater and purge system.

What they said.

A wet shot of 50-75hp is OK for the stock non-turbo internals.

I set mine up at the razors edge of 115hp.
I only did this because I'm a NOS authorized installer and refilling station ....... and my personal relationship with my Chrysler dealership.
Last month, I made them a killer deal on a $6000.00 brake lathe and I know they would bend the rules on a 7/70 powetrain warranty claim if I toasted the engine.
