i think u'd need a wet kit. if the shot isn't too big i don't think it should be a problem. but i'm not very educated in this area

Make sure it'* wet. Lot'* of fuel/ Try to get a high flow fuel filter. I wouldn't use it under 3k rpm. I think a 50 shot is fine.Full throttle.
That'* what they told me .

Well.. I would definitely run a wet shot if it'* for the */C'd. I heard 75 shots max would be fine too. I don't think it would kill your engine as much as maybe your tranny ( or due from the tranny ) while it'* shifting between gears. From my understanding of it.. the killer from NOS is really over Reving of the engine ( due to wheel spin and all )and over lean ( not enough fuel mixture ). But again, this is also through hear say. I"ve been contemplating over NOS for quite a while.. but the major thing holding me back is Insurance.. them ****** would try to find anything to bail out of paying out for you if you got into an accident. I don't know how it works in the STates either.. but in Canada.. you have to have a sticker on your front windshield to say you're carrying NOS on board ( I don't remember how the emblem looks like.. but it'* green ). And cannot be connected while on Public roads ( Damm.. when the hell do you think I'd be using it then?? Not as if we go to the track everynight ).

Nitrous is a risk, just like any modification to an engine. It'* a risk where you accept the possibility that you could fubar your engine. I personally enjoy taking risks!

I am not a NOS pro per say but the guys I get my product from have offered this info.

New plugs a must
Denso plugs were suggested.

The other products suggested were

NX T&T or VENOM kits.

zex has inferior valves and NX is so confident in there product that there valves are guaranteed and backed.

NX kits are cheaper up front than the T&T kits but the T&T kits are more complete.

Chillers are also available

Opps forgot you were running the zex.

The valves can be replaced though.

You will find a 50 shot with T&T is too much and same with NX. With NOS or zex a 50 shot is fine but be careful. The nozzle styles on the NX T&T and Venom provide a better atomization so they create more hp per shot. This means a 50 shot on there (NX T&T Venom) systems is too high for my shop to be comfortable suggesting. With the big 3 I would suggest a 40 shot. I also forgot to mention the higher flow fuel regulator and yes it is needed with a 50 shot.

25-40 will not "need" a regulator.
