wasnt sure where to put this so i figured here would be ok maybe. got my hands on a compucar wet kit and was hoping to install it on the celi. motor has 25xxxx miles on it. motor doesnt tick make noise or anything. i was gonna do a compression test also. i did some searching and seen that a guy named nuke? did some nitrous stuff but i cant find any of his topics for some reason. now how much can this motor take? i was only thinking bout a 25-50 shot. now this is my dd but im so use to my vw im missing the power and want to give the celi a little push to keep me happy till the vw is back together lol. what other supporting mods should i get?

nuclearhapiness is the member your looking for

ya that was the name. i searched his posts and only found a FYI on a wet kit install guide being wrong or something along that lines. u think even on that small of a shot it will cook the motor?

i sprayed with a 40 shot dry kit. ran colder plugs and retarded the timing a bit. some say thats over kill and you dont even need to do that with such a small shot but i just wanted to be as safe as i could. my motor held up fine and had more miles then your motor. in a couple months it was my clutch that bit the dust.

i honestly hated nitrous. it was fun not gona lie, but 35$ to fill up the bottle and then it wasn't even dependable power. it varied with how hot the bottle was, how full the bottle was, or if the bottle was even open or not. and its not like you can just leave the bottle open because it'll slowly leak out and there goes 35$... nitrous sucks ass

Ya not so fun but you could always buy a remote bottle opener and a bottle heater. Once you see the price of them it isn't worth 40hp.

nitrous is like a tampon, every pussy needs one.

yeah... electric bottle heaters cost around 200$ and the same for a automatic bottle opener. much better to invest in "real" forced induction that will always be there when you step on the gas from a turbo.

don't let me cock block your decision man, its your car, do what you want. just giving you my 2 cents. seeing as how you already bought the kit it seems your pretty set. its fun for a lil while, i beat a beemer 328ci from a roll =P.

dont tell him that a 25 shot is going to kill his engine. thats such crap. if you install a nitrous system right and put a colder plug in, you will be fine. if the engine is already hurt then thats a different story.

I ran a 50 wet shot in my 04 GTS with no problems... just do it right the first time and take the necessary precautions. Check out http://www.dynotunenitrous.com/store/Scripts/default.asp for parts.
