Looking at adding a wet shot of nitrous to Sneaks. Nothing radical, 100HP or so. Just enough to keep the interest when I hit the go pedal.
Who's running it, what system you running, and pro's and cons of the system.
I don't wanna hear, "Do H/C or FI and be done with it" crap either. Funds dictate neither of those at this time. Also, don't gimme the, "Nitrous isn't safe for your engine" stuff. Todays systems are way advanced over yesterdays stuff, and I'm not going to be running the stuff all the time. Just when I wanna have a little go pedal fun. :D

I've been wanting to put a dry system on my car for a while now. I have nothing constructive to add but hope someone chimes in here. LS1Tech has a great nitrous section but you probably already know that. Roberts Nitrous Service has some good write ups and info for the C5 as well and he is always happy to answer questions. I also think Harris Speed Works is having a 20% off sale right now but it might be over.

Do you have a specific kit you're looking at and why did you choose to go wet?

I just like the idea of the nitrous being mixed with additional fuel. Not having to rely on the PCM to add fuel is a plus to me. Even though, the C5 PCM can handle this easily, it still makes me more comfy knowing there is a designated fuel delivery system to go along with the nitrous.
Have looked at a few different systems, but haven't made up my mind yet.

One of my buddies did a wet 100 shot on his 02 Z and the only other mods were headers and cold air intake, he did 175 mph at the Texas Mile last Oct, before that was 165 mph, sprayed once he got into third, go for it, TNT kithttp://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c293/elsloan22/emotions/55425421.gif

Not personal experience. I've known a few people running nitrous and they LOVE it. I think it's too dangerous for my motor.:D

Your H/C package already makes what I would be getting with a 100 shot. And it's there all the time, don't have to turn it on and off. :above:

Oh oh, now you've gone and done it.

Tim,

Help me with some math:

(521/403)x427= ?

and

(480/403)x427= ?

:D:D:D:D:D

Making calls looking for a place to play this morning.

This isn't just your basic add/subtract/multiply math. You have to use what we call CRAPFACTOROMETRY to figure this equation out.
521(403)
________ X 427 = People gonna crap themselves when you hit the go pedal!
480(403)
