Try a search here first. I've had 4 systems in my car in the last 2 years. Google after that. You have ALOT to read up on.

I would say to install an injector for a NO2 to be slowly sent into the in take nothing like the ricers do but enought to cool the intake and add a little O2 you might need a pressure regulator to keep the psi low and a small stedy stream.

Water injection will do next to nothing for you. It benefits turbo'* and supercharged cars quite a bit more.

actually, to tell you the truth, i was just thinking of doing THAT to steam out the guy behind me. i was thinking of tranny fluid before, or something like that, but i get that feeling that there will be a law enforcement officer that would have a different view than i do on the subject. any suggestions?
