NOS

NOS is completely legal, it doesn't blow your engine, and what the insurance man doesn't know !!!!

Isn't Nitro the same as NOS ( Nitrous Oxide )

Nitro vs NOS

NOS is nitrous oxide (or laughing gas), which releases oxygen when it burns, basically you're adding more oxygen to the fuel/air mix.

Nitro is nitro methane, which is used in dragsters. It's more an explosive than a fuel, and gives off a caustic gas when it burns. It's used instead of petrol, it has triple the calorific value of petrol...I don't recommend it for road use!

It'd be pretty hard to hide the NOS after an accident, you'd be in deep **** if anything went wrong and the insurance company found out.

Nos Details

I've also looked extensivley into Nos as an alternative to a turbo to increase the Performance of my Bravo 1.6 100sx. And every one I have spoken to has given mainly positive results. As long as you don't have big jets and keep the Kit under 30 bhp there should be no damage done to the engine, as long as it's not used all the time that is.

Some details of Nos company's, the kit types and money involved.

Nos. Big blue bottle (used in the Fast and the Furious) a wet kit that is not really suitable for my engine. The base kit is 40bhp and retails for about 580

NX: Dry base kit starts with jets that deliver 30bhp for 600ish quid. Comes with cool looking white bottle, DIY instructions and all the bits you'll need for the install and should go up to 100 bhp (this is the kit I'll probably go for with the remote turn on button).

Nitrous solutions: aka Nos Wizard based in Doncaster http://www.noswizard.com/ The Ecoblaser 100i dry base kit starts at 450 and that's with jets that will deliver 25 bhp it comes with DIY instructions and all the bits to do the install the kit is capable of delivering 100bhp.

I've got a few more websites on my favourite at home. The Noswizard site was the only one I could remember of the top of my head. If any one wants me to post the other websites just say so.

Hope this helps you out.

NOS?

I am still unsure about nos, but have spoke to a few peeps who say it is not as bad as use to be.
so may be a viable option, have u had it done to your car and if so what results.
Any more info would be much appreciated.
Cheers spyder.
