fuel in the SC is not good at all for the teflon on the rotors. if you put it before the throttle plate, and ever backed off quickly and had a small pop, just think if there was raw fuel in there too

I'm pretty sure a wet or dry EFI nitrous system would be safe on a SC application as long as the kit comes with the proper failsafes. I will know for sure this spring from experience.

Well really the only failsafes they come with are a sensing of sorts of the amount of fuel that is going in with the nitrous. Most will hook up to your fuel pressure regulator and make it think the throttle is heavier than it is resulting in more fuel. It reads manifold pressure to see where the throttle actually is then makes the regulator think its 10 or 20% further. This is somewhat a "dumb" system though because if for some reason the fuel actually isn't being delivered (Faulty fuel pump, clogged injector) the system has no way of determining this and will continue as if nothing happened.

here is an example how fuel will puddle if you put it before the SC, look inside the lower intake with the Sc off. between the intake runners, there are like caves cast into it, like an intake runner, but it goes no where. a good place for fuel to collect.

Direct port is great.

Inline also works great. Yes inline systems made by "Nos" are known for puddling. I have done a lot of research and other than the price “Nos” is still playing catch up in a big way.

NX, Zex, T&T and Venom do not have this issue. They all use good mixing jets and NX uses the best to date. Most people do not use several different systems so they have no idea what the difference is. Most retail shops offering NX that push the product are usually “Nos” users who swap in NX jets to see the difference. Then they become NX pushers. Lol


-There is an increased wear that happens with our SC when we use a smaller pulley, or add nitrous. Yes there is wear when using nitrous and also when adding a smaller pulley. I always laugh when I hear SC warnings about nitrous but the same guy is using a pulley the size of a pinhead. Lol

the extra wear using a inline nitrous injection system is smaller than 20%.

-That means around 80.000 miles on a SC instead of 100 thousand miles.

-A stock SC with a nitrous injected with an inline plate using a NX jet with a 35 shot will gain 100-foot pounds of torque and 60hp. Now that is with a 35 shot of a NX system.
