I am thinking about getting a 75-100 shot wet system. My dilemma is I just purchased Evolve's CF Airbox (CSL Type Rep) running alpha-N; was wondering if it was possible to run a wet nitrous system with this airbox? Anyone here running nitrous with their CF CSL Airbox (Rep or original) and alpha-N tune?

I have searched but cannot find the answer. Thanks!

My apologies if this has been answered somewhere before.

How suitable is nitrous for street use, where you want an extra kick for occasional accelerations such as getting on a freeway or scaring the **** out of an unsuspecting passenger?

My main concern is how safe is it in terms of engine damage?

Will a reasonable size bottle last long enough so that I'm not always having to fill it (yes, I know, "it depends.")?

Do you only have to purge once, when changing the bottle, or does it need to be purged if it just isn't used for awhile?

Thanx, guys.

Hey Just read thru this entire thread...awesome encouraging and very excited to start this project on my rce car...
Im about to buy no2 for my e36 m3 s52 with 80k on it, its a pro/am drift car for comp use only however i do drive it on the streets sometimes to my local tracks...
Goal is to get about 100-150 extra whp for comps.

im asking to see if someone wouldn't mind helping me walk thru buying the right kit and right parts for my install.
what do i need?

direct port on the stock manifold (s52)or single on the intake pipe after MAF?

wet or dry?

what gauges etc do i need

a wide band with a/f lean cutoff etc

heard i need colder spark plugs and make sure my timing isn't advanced.
how do i know if my timing is advanced?
Im running a old tune(chip) from RMS with a CAI and 3.5 maf

I've heard about horror stories and really great stories so if you wouldn't mind walking me thru the best set up
and things to do right the first time id really appreciate it. Im sure you guys know and understand drifting however my only problem with running a setup is sometime i sit on the limiter so how do i set up a system for this? can you program is to on work on a rpm range and this shut off before i get the limiter etc?
thanks for your help in advance.
any pictures of a set up or if you know of a thread for a e36 send me the links haven't found any yet thanks

Does any one know the percentage / ratio for nos for fuel increase for a dry system per jet size? Im running a Aem ems and I add fuel on a 17x 20 rpm / load table as a percentage increase. Looking to get a ball park idea for tuning

It's kind of sad that this thread died, I guess people are scared of N20. I've been reading up for over a week and I think I want to try a 125 shot with Direct Port. Still got more reading to do just wish there were more pictures of set-ups and dyno graphs.
