How do you feel about using nitrus, and does anyone have any info as to where I can get some.

www.thrashercharged.com or ZZPerformance sells the adaptor plates
if youre n/a or */c i would recomend you have proper supporting mods first naturally.

If youre running a supercharger do not use a wet shot it will eat off the coating on your

rotors. naturally aspirated is fine for a wet shot and so is a turbo app.

dry shot will help out gretaly on */ced cars for the intercooler effect it provides.

Buickman is dead wrong on the application, and should hesitate to give advice on the subject. Supercharged should NEVER run a dry shot under any circumstances. You have to run a Wet shot to prevent running lean while injecting.

I suggest you solicit the advice of someone that'* actually knowledgable about the subject from personal experience. Not hearsay.

It would also help if we knew what engine you had. Please put that in your signature.

FYI most people who run superchargers with nitrous have fuel settings to accomodate if you run wet shot you can kiss the teflon coating good buy maybe you and willren should look up 3800pro.com and search for nitrous apps

NA motors are pretty straight-forward. I've been running mild shots though my older motor for about a year now. Now ill effects. No additional internal modifications were done to the engine. I can't speak to running it through a SC motor yet..I haven't had the pleasure of trying that yet.

I prefer using wet systems. I feel it'* easier to tune the fuel that way and is less work for the injectors. I'm using a single fogger nozzle in the manifold just behind the TB. That was a compromise...I did it mainly to avoid shooting NOS through the MAF sensor.

I also recommend installing a activation switch on the throttle bellcrank so the solenoids can only fire at WOT. Using a pushbutton works for a little while, but you really don't want to fire the system at anything less than wide open throttle. (A backfire in the intake can blow the throttle plate right off...kinda ruins your evening.)

From the Zex website:
Q: What is better, a "wet" or "dry" kit?
A: It all depends on the application. A "wet" kit is ideal for both normally aspirated applications as well as forced induction applications. It can require a little bit more installation time than a "dry" kit, but is easier to tune if greater than stock HP settings are to be experimented with. A "dry" kit is excellent for normally aspirated combinations that have a return style fuel system. They are very easy to install and are a great "first time" nitrous system. It is not recommended that "dry" systems be used on forced induction engines.

By the way, Gen 3 M90'* have epoxy coating; the Gen V'* have Teflon.

From 3800Pro.com
http://www.3800pro.com/forum/showthread.php?t=741

In general it seems there'* mixed results about nitrious or water injection and rotor coating erosion. Some people are fine, other'* aren't...

The bottom line I gather is that dry shouldn't be used for fear of running lean under a boosted condition, and the best method for nitrous in */C applications would be direct port.

I have no experience but I would check into how many PSI or pressure the intake manifold (on a L36 assuming that he has a L36) can take without bursting. However if there was a nitrous backfire, I'm almost certain that the intake manifold would burst.

It would be beneficial to clarify what the ORIGINAL poster is driving as that will affect the type of system we'd recommend. I had to search to find out it was a 2001 SLE (N/A of course) and it would really help to have it in the signature.

You are misinformed and obviously inexperienced. If I'm wrong, please share your own personal experience with NO2 and an L67 with us.

L67'* typically don't inject pre-rotor anyway. Direct-port wet systems are preferred, and the most commonly used.

you can deny my advice but other members said what i said in a nutshell. you wont run lean with a dry shot if you have the proper TUNE, that is fact. Tthere are people running dry shots succesfully with the proper tune. So how do you deny the facts?how many people have a direct port setup?a handful at best. most will use the adapter plate and spray, from what ive seen wet shots hurt coatings but nothing else yea it may be safer but most of us dont have a couple of grand to spend on direct port systems. im talking mainstream nitrous apps here
