Umm why do you think i said "Kick what?? That would only effect your initial cranking, and a cold engine ain't gonna like what that **** will do directly in there..... Wtf..."

It would only effect initial cranking cause it would all detonate at once! Causing a big chain of events... I'm not stupid, i know what i'm talking about, but im not talking like im dictating an encyclopedia. Just having a conversation... Not writing a tech sheet...

NOS is not a bad way to go if your engine is prepared or if you use an appropriate boost level for your engine. All added strain from gained HP regardless of what is used to produce it would reduce the life of the engine. So be prepared to replace parts. If you are ready to go for it NOS can be very effective.

It might be wiser to build an engine ground while you drive what you have. Often it will pay at this time to swap in a newer series2 3.8l.

Managing a forum or post is much like a game of chess back to the center/topic. Usually that is all that is needed. So if you are ready to go all the way NOS is a great way to go.

A small shot of NO2, like what you want, should not harm the car to an extreme. Just change to some colder spark plugs and maybe some better wire.

maybe a 60 shot from what i've heard on a relativly stock engine. Anything over 75 and you must have some serious mods/rebuild.

It'* not really that unbelievable that my car only has 45,000km, the motor and transmision were just recently replaced. the motor from GM and the tranny from aamco. anyhow i guess i will keep my car stock, considering today i found out i have a cracked manifold, exhuast that is, to take care of now. It never ends.

ohhh, I thought it was original 45K, see if you can get a manifold from the wrecker. Or call Zorro Discount Muffler in Mississauga, good prices and they give you the INSTALLED price
