Anyone running Nitrous?

I'm looking into getting NOS for the goat. I was wondering if anyone has some tips on systems. ie: wet or dry? 100-125hp or more etc..... I have found some really good deals just want to get your valued input. Keep in mind I dont want to tear this thing up, I just want to some extra kick in the pants at the drag stip. Some people think I'm nuts I have a car with 400 horsies and I want more? HELL YEAH!!!!

Just go with a forced induction system as soon as they start popping up in bulk for the 05's... that is as long as you're ready to void your warranty for some major power

Otherwise I don't have much experience in nitros

I wouldn't just FI a brand new LS2 engine. They come stock with 10.9:1 compression which is not the greatest for FI. Forced Induction does better with lower compression. I would think 5-7 psi of boost may be suitible for the LS2, but I have no experience with these things, just an educated guess. The normal LS1 engines were great for Nitrous. I am not sure how LS2 engines will do with this type of power adder, but I would say talk to a tuner about what he thinks about this set up. And don't run nitrous untuned or your car will go

Well with forced induction I mean SuperChargers of some type. Though none really aren't out yet, I know of a guy working with ProCharger to create the LS2 model. Should be really nice, making it pretty easy to run 10's if you set it up right. Though doing this will of course completely void your warranty... thus while I'm going to wait awhile until I install one on my baby

That's some good info. Thanks. I called and talk to a guy at Cold Fusion Nitrous and he said a dry kit, 100-125hp would be good for the LS2, he has kits in stock and he's allready installed the same kit on a few 05 GTO's with no problems. I have never messed with NOS so I'm just doing my homework so I dont destroy it. Let me know if you guy's have any more info................Later

Yeah $469 for the complete 100-125hp kit. I have been doing research on the net. It's fairly simple install 2-3hrs. The kit comes with great instructions with pictures!! Oh yeah I'm going to be on the bottle real soon. A couple of things I've learned is, go with a WOT switch, dont get a kit over 125hp or you'll need to run race gas, you'll have to get new spark plugs designed to deal with the temps the nitrous gives in the cylinder. Dry kits are considered a good "beginner" kit. Hope this helps. Later

Oh yeah, tuning...uhhhhhh I havent seen anything yet. I dont really know if there is any tuning involved but I guess I'll find out. All it is really is a spray that sprayed right before the throttlebody at WOT and then engine burns it. I dont know as far as the tuning aspec of it. I'm sure there is some tuning with the solenoid or the jets ??? I havent got there yet. I'm still learning. O yeah one more thing I learned, you shouldnt run NOS with a chip. A chip advances the timing and will cause detonation......dam I run on and on....Cheers
