Thinking about getting nitrous

What's a good kit to get?
Something small
Also do I just need to but the nitrous kit or do I need a whole bunch of other parts to make work?
I have $1000.00 would that be enough for the kit and tuning?

Re: Thinking about getting nitrous

There is a nitrous section of the forum, prolly with a lot more info.

I think you need to do more research before commiting to anything.

$1,000? I don't know much about nitrous, but usually any extensive modification is never cheap. Going turbo on a car (good setup) costs around 10 grand, and I can't imagine a good nitrous setup that won't blow up your car being extremely cheaper. But, I could very well be wrong.

Re: Thinking about getting nitrous

"Nitrous also works best with motors that are stock or mildly modified. Those with more modified motors will not see as great an increase in power as non-modified ones. Nitrous works the same in different size motors,depending on the kit"

I'm just looking for a little extra power every now and then.just want to know if anyone is running a nitrous on there stock motors and if so is it worth it?

Re: Thinking about getting nitrous

Well first of all. Nitrous is fairly bad for your engine since it forces lots of pressure. While your engine doesn't need to be modified, it must be in very good condition or it'll blow, and if your lude is an automatic, you shouldn't even be asking.

Secondly, H22a's (as many know) burn oil like crazy. With you adding more force, your burning more oil as well. My buddy had a nitrous kit setup in his EK and he spent closer to $2000 to make it right.

Re: Thinking about getting nitrous

Let's make this simple.

How many miles on your engine?
Which engine?
Which transmission?

Dont listen to this guy.

Ok so first off, do a compression and leakdown test and make sure your motor is in pretty good shape. Ur looking for the numbers u pull to be close to each other.

After that is taken care of u will need to look into which kit u want. What size jet are u wanting to run? 50shot, 75?......what?

Ive seen somebody running a 100shot on a stock block and head with a good tune.(I still wouldnt recommend it.)

If your running a 50 shot I would honestly say dont worry about a tune. Get you a set of step colder spark plugs(6 is stock, 7 is one step colder, etc....) and retard your timing by one degree.

Anything over a 50 shot and I would recommend a tune and other mods just to be safe.

Other than that, do your research. There is alot of info reguarding nitrous and h-series motors.

Yea thanks I did some research and the h22 motor can handle a 50-75 shot as long as u don't get trigger happy and abuse it but I'm still Going to get the 50 shot just to be on the safe side and it's pretty much plug and play besides getting the spark plugs.
Now I'm just confused on what's the best kit to get

This is the kit I'm thinking of getting

130000 on body

Transmission is just the stock one

Car runs perfect
