    It's around a 4-6 hour install, but if you're too lazy your can always get someone else to do it

    I would love to see a complete nitrous kit that was installed in 4 hours.

    Guess we have different definitions of the term ‘install’

    Noticed you didn’t show any completed installation pictures. Huh....

    Eh who cares we’ll see you in another 3 months. Keep that thing together there, Spilner.

    There’s no consensus on having to spend 10k on a boosted stang. You throw supporting mods towards the boosted car but not towards your car. You add labor to boosted car but “choose” to do your stuff yourself. You assume you’re at 600whp or 650whp. You assume a 200shot is more reliable than 9-10psi of boost.

    I like nitrous, but no way is it cheaper than any other FI. Nitrous guys always leave out the cost of filling the bottle when talking about cost. A better title for your thread would be "How I made 600 rwhp for under $3000...ONCE"

    Lol. I honestly dont even know what those hashtag things do or what the purpose is. Always thought they were just for memes on SVTP

    You clearly didn't read the post. If you had you would've noted that I clearly stated that a 150 shot is no more dangerous. I also stated that anything more than a 150, especially with stock pistons & rings is like playing russian roulette. I also included the supporting mods necessary for my application, and I didn't assume anything. The car dynoed that output. As far as the installation goes, I did the installation myself as do most others running spray because it doesn't take as long, nor is it as complicated, as installing a turbo, or S/C kit.

    I've been running the same setup for 9 months now. I haven't thrown a code or run into any issues to-date. A 10 lb. tank will last 2-4 weeks because I've found it much easier to get a race N/A as most cars in my area seem to be in the 400-500 hp range, however I do run into an arrogant asshole w/ a Z06 on occasion that needs to be knocked off their high-horse so it's nice to have the spray as insurance. The point of the post was to inform others who are working on a budget that there's a safe alternative that will allow them to stay competitive until such time that they're able to boost their cars. It just requires responsibility of the end user. I fully intend to boost my car in the near future, and I'm in the process of saving the monies required to upgrade the necessary drive-train components such as transmission, half-shafts, etc.

    Nice looking car. Glad you're having fun wit it. Seems to be working for you.

    My foot goes straight to the floor on every freeway on ramp, most off ramps and a few places in between. Not sure nitrous would be a good fit.

    Also, it would probably just feel too weird to open the hood and not see a blower. Not sure how anyone would ever get used to that or even why they should have to. Doesn't spending $3000 on stuff that is not FI just make it take longer to fix that unpleasant situation?

    Nice writeup. Impressively detailed and long.

    And yet I see no dyno video or sheet
    or track passes to support these claims.

    Nitrous?? Sorry im not trying to pop all the bolts out the passenger floorpan and have it fly out onto the street!
    You're lucky that 100 shot of nos didn't blow the welds on your intake!

    Quit saying your car makes 650whp and everybody will leave you alone. It's obvious you're misinformed.
