I'd be really careful if I were you. I looked into the nitrous thing and there's more to it than shooting the spray. Extra fuel has to be added and with the right amounts or everything will burn lean and burn things out...really quick. You'll get your burst of speed for only for a few seconds before it all goes up in smoke.

I have been running nitrous on my Accord for some time now..what you really want to know is the shot. How much nitrous are you putting in? You cant just shoot as much as you want[B)]

It says it's a 30hp shot, seems pretty low, that's why I thought the risk would be minimal[:I]

The ad says, "Portable 30 HP Shot Of the Good Stuff, Good Ol' Nitrous, Plug it into any intake and Hit the button whenever you need it. Will Work on Most Intakes and Can be used on 4 wheelers, Motorcycles, Just about anything. A Hand held Trigger (or Mountable) provides the Shot."

You are betting a lot of money (an engine worth) that the risk is minimal. Do you have a wide-band 02 sensor hooked up or any other way to monitor your engine?

It looks like a squeeze trigger to activate. So you have to take a hand off the wheel to do this while you are racing? Also, hope you don't have to shift. Does it lock open or something when you squeeze the trigger so you have your hand free? Nitrous usually uses a throttle switch to activate and then turn it off at the end of the run. There are a lot of unknowns with this kit. No way would I experiment on my car with this.

Don't it, that thing is crap. We'e already talked about this thing on another board (where alot of veteran drag racers and mecahnics hang out)

That stuff is basically the same thing they use to refill whip-cream cans.

It's trash, don't waste your money.
