Default Only $525 for Nitrous kit???

If nitrous kits are so cheap, how much would the install be on one of those?

Do it yourself. hardest part would be wiring the solenoids up to your switch and power source, and the throttle activated switch.

Other wise you poke a hole in the intake tube, and strap a bottle down.

Buy a kit wholesale on Ebay if you can. Got mine for a little over $400.

most kits are around $500, but if you dont know what youre doing, it will cost you more in the end. its not a good idea to mount the nozzle in the intake tube due to the fact we have a MAF sensor in the throttlebody. the more you pay, the more you get. im going to mount my nozzle in the opening of the supercharger just past the throttlebody. VENOM has a kit that ties into the O2 sensor, TPS, tach signal, and each injector. plus it has a computer that monitors the O2 readings and lengthens the pulse width on the injectors to keep the air/ fuel ratio where it needs to be, and if the O2 sensor falls below .60 volts, it kills the system. the kit is the VENOM2000. more money, but how much will it cost to replace motor parts if something goes wrong with a cheap system

The VCN-2000 is a nice unit if you have 2 grand lying around. The arent hard to install, mounting the bottle can be a bigger pain the wiring the rest of the system up if you dont take your time.

the venom2000 isnt 2000 bux, it is like 1400 , but well worth the money. the key to nitrous isnt how hard it is to install, but how well you tune it to your car.
