View Full Version : nitrous question

02-09-2006, 07:07 PM
My 96 has about 98,000 miles. Should I bother putting a nitrous kit on and what kind, wet or dry system? Local speed shop has wet nitrous express kit for $550. Will I ruin my engine quickly with those miles? :( My Cobra runs good and uses little oil and still runs strong. I do notice some smoke at high rpms close to redline and the few times I have hit the fuel shut off at 7K. Thanks.

6200 rpm's she is all done pulling as for nos if you see smoke now the end is near nos will only quicken it:)

Im actually getting ready to order an NX race kit for my 99 and run somewhere between and 100-150 shot on the stock shortblock. I cant really justify a chip and dyno tune at 500 bucks, but if I go nitrous I will absolutely dyno tune w/ and w/o nitrous. My question is how do I know my tuner is giving me a safe tune?

From what I know, i think that timing must be retarded about 4 degrees and also I should set up a window switch to activate/shutoff at 3500-6500 RPMs. Should fuel be added in the tune as well? I will be switching to the SVT focus fuel pump as well. Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated for I dont want to blow my motor. thanks
