NOS, Love it or hate it?

I feel that nitrous oxide is often overlooked by most people. What are the

main reasons for this? One of the quickest cars I have been in was a near

standard s2 rallye running 50bhp progressivley controlled NOS using a dastek

as the controller. It also had a LSD to aid traction. Is this a very un rallye

thing to do? Of course I prefer N/A power mods thats why my car is modified

like it is, but the plus of having NOS in my eyes is that you can drive your car

perfectly normally, and economically and when you want to overtake, have a

moment of madness you have 50bhp at the flick of a switch. Also I think

there are alot of misconceptions that NOS will blow your engine up. As long

as it is injected at full throttle I can't see there being any major problems

using up to about 30bhp jets, possibly a little more? What are your opinions

about it or suggestions?

I've not got it, but there was a kit for sale on here not too long ago that I was seriously looking at getting. Just finances getting in the way! I personally think its an ok mod. The reason people don't like it i think is because its kind of fake power. Its only there when activated then its over. I think thats a good thing personally. But i'd rather have that extra 25 or 50 bhp etc permanantly! Its also not easy to set up. Without progressive controllers etc you're not really getting the most from it.

When mines on bodies with stand alone management, i'll get it. This way you can control it perfectly. I'll probably destroy gearboxes, but nevermind.

So yeah, I like it.

Nothing wrong with nitrous in my book. Its been around alot longer than the max power brigade has. As long as its installed correctly its a good idea for cheap upgrade in power. But you cant use it all the time and it soon runs out if you do! Do some research into it and decide on the safest option. A 50bhp jet sounds like quite alot on a 100bhp engine. Id be tempted to stay safe and go for 25bhp.

I love it.

Obviously I cannot afford it at the moment and the refilling of the bottle might get a bit annoying as I understand the stuff don't last too long.

General power mods are always gonna be the way forward as these put a smile on your face when you are just driving normally, but for those special driving occasions I have no problem with it, it is just another way to burn petrol.

140 brake solidly built TU with 50 BHP NOS, why the hell not.

so 190 brake and 220 bhp per tonne, not much could keep up at that, gear box included as mentioned above. and would for sure need an LSD.

Would keep up with 330 brake impreza or evo with 190 brake, and associated increase in torque. Might even take them.

i no alot of the turbo people us it as an anti lag , just to get that kick before the boost winds up.

i think those with the larger turbos do this and only use the smaller jets
