Just as an FYI, N2O is the formula for nitrous oxide and NOS stands for Nitrous Oxide Systems (a company formed in 1978 and now owned by Holley), so the correct way to refer to generic nitrous oxide is N2O. For example, "My new N2O system from NOS should be arriving any day now."

And that'* Mr. Language Person'* lesson for today.

I heard that in The Fast and the Furious they made a few mistakes with N20(NOS). First one is that when they open the Eclipse for the first time, they say he has a Nitrous Fogger System and a Direct Port Injection(or something close to that.). Someone said thats impossible. Another is that N20(NOS) isnt activated by a button. They really screwed up alot of things in that movie besides these two things as well.

** Hope you satisfied with my Nitrous references .

Nitrous can be activated by a button or a WOT switch is usually safer but a button you have to watch your tach and make sure you hit it at the right time. And a fogger'* are fun systems, and yes there are fogger direct port nitrous injection.

First thing that comes to my mind when I read "NOS" is New Old Stock. I laugh in people'* faces when they say they're going to put some "naas" in their preludes or eclipses.
