    You can do it. I would definatly go with a wet system tho. I dont think the fuel system/injectors are up to nitrous

    I know it CAN be done, just wondering if anyone here has. I was thinking about piecing it together with a square bore injection plate(wet) and other used parts. Think besides filling the bottle and possibly bottle cost it could be done for under $200.

    I put a 75hp wet fogger on a stock probe and ran 3 bottles through it and it survived just fine. I am also going to put a 100hp shot this spring on my chevy 1500 w/ 4.3 engine.

    Just make sure you call NOS and get the correct jettings for your fuel pressure and nos. Also get an AF guage to watch for lean conditions and make sure you very rich on WOT.

    Best thing you can do for any Nos system is buy a controller. It makes things soooooo much easier.:D

    A progressive controller duty cycles the solenoids clicking them on and off to smooth out the hit of nitrous... but the downside is it wears out the solenoids way faster... and when the solenoids stick, they stick open! :blush:
    I'm working on a sportsman fogger setup for my camaro and will be running two nitrous solenoids inline in case one sticks open the other closes it off and saves your motor. however, then you're twice as likely to have a solenoid stick.
    I also wouldn't run nitrous without using a fuel pressure safety switch.
