thats what i mean by small, its only a few tenths any way. a hundred might give you .8 on a full weight car but your pushing it with reliability

My ears were burning.

75 shoot should be fine. GOT to be a wet shot. You want a purge so only liquid NOS sprays at nozzle. Put the spray nozzle combo (gas and nitrous) just after the MAF. It doesn't give alot of room to vaporize through the throttle body but you don't want to damage the MAF or it actually knowing what is going on. Let the motor and it'* electronics do their thing, and the nitrous do it'* own thing. Better results would likely be had replacing existing airbox with a 3" x 12" pipe and clamping the flex portion with the MAF in it to that. "afterthought on my part"

Off the line don't get greedy. 1500+RPM then spray. Be careful when activating that you have "room' to backoff the throttle halfway for a few seconds before deceleration/braking. You don't want to "flood" a low rpm engine with nitrous, nor do you want to chance having residual nitrous in the intake manifold when you throttle down. Either can cause a violent intake "backfire" Our plastic manifold wouldn't take the pain. Not sure all that aluminum would fare well either.

I can't speak about reliability, I've only used 3 bottles (10 hits a bottle) and have just over 52K miles on the car. I had my fun but the car is now a Sunday Driver. It'* just another toy I have no time for anymore.

Cheap thrills? Hmm. My kit and extras topped $800 and $50-60 a bottle. Not so cheap thrills.

you do anything to increase the strength of the front stuff like the control arm bushings or strut mounts?

No I didn't. I don't think the strut mounts need to be beefier than OEM and the GXP comes with a hardy tower brace. Control arm bushings "seem ok" but I'm going to replace them along with the sway bar bushings which are trashed. I'm sure riding inches off the ground for 35K+ miles did those in. Even with the camber adjusted for the drop the sway bar was definitely an issue that should have been better addressed. The car had serious steering instability over "highway speed" with the body dropped.

Sorry I am have been crazy busy, Thanks for getting back to me on this. I am actually not going to do this. The more I think about it The more I just want to drive the car, for an extra 75 shot it doesn't seem worth it. Im not even sure if I want to keep the car. I just hit 81k miles and all in all the cars in good shape but it is showing its age. I need to search the forum on some items. all the trim is faded, the headlights are shot. Id love an aftermarket set of headlights but I know that'* not going to happen. I want to get my rims fixed so they look new.. car just started leaking oil.

with all that said I may just fix some items and put up my car for sale and buy a new car, as long as I get the price I want.
