Since you have an SSEi I highly recommend a wet kit made by one of the many companies. NX, NOS, and VENOM are the big ones. I've only had experience with Zex and NX though, so I can only recommoned NX to you. They have basic simple setups that will get you going in no time.

No I still got it. I only have personally experience (physically handling) NX and Zex.

Allmachtige and DrJay are the best resources we have here for NOS. DrJay is running it on an SSEi, and is the only one I know of so far. I belive Jeffrey10x2 is toying with the idea, and he'* an ASE certified mechanic.......Speedguy is also quite knowledgeable.

Just trying to work up a list of guys to bug.......to make sure you do it safe.

How much can a non-sc engine handle of nitrous? Safely that is. I have heard of people running 150 shots in cavaliers and blowing up their motors. But what can we handle?

My understanding (unmodded L27 or L36) is a 75 shot. But I'll defer to more experienced bottle-boys here.

Well, well, the vicadin is not holding you back. Take a few more, thats when the fun starts (j/k).

Anyways, a 75 shot should be safe? Is it safer (again this is kind of an oxymoron with Nitrous) to run wet or dry shots. I have heard dry is a bit easier, thus making it safer.
