@nitrous in a GTS@

i have a gts 2002 and since income tax is coming soon and i cant get the Hood i want, i am going to get nitrous-(i am leaning towards zex nitrous) keep in mind i am a beginner with nitrous so i want a simple nitrous system i am thinking of putting it inbetween my back seats but the only doubt i hav about that is cops and whether or not that will cause some bad attenion and if its illegal in pa i dont know-if you could give me a few ideas on where to put it and what a good system is that would be great i think im gonna want to keep it at a 50 shot to be somewhat safe thanks in advance

well I know for a fact in minnesota having nitrous is not illegal, cause I got caught driving DAS and they searched my car and the cop found the nitrouse hooked up in the trunk but didnt give me a ticket or anything for it. The only thing he asked about it was if I used it to try to get away from him, I would of but unfortuanley I had all the switches for it disconnected for it at that time, but the bottle was full and Open.

^^^which ever one it is I would recomend not getting direct Injection unless your engine is built up at least a little bit so it can handle the extra power.

my dads propane company has done converstions for cars so that they run off propane. Normally trucks so you can have another gas tank in the bed. Burns clean jsut aliuttle pricy.

Sure maybe but if Nitrous is so Blatenly illeagal like everyone says it is then I think he would of given me a ticket for it. I am not defending that it is leagal or not I am just saying in my own experience that I was never given a Citation for it. And I am not lying about my story. thumbsup

the cop will only give you a ticket for laws he knows or half-knows. if he doesn't even know about N20 how can he ticket you for that?

but does he know it's not legal? anyway, my point has come through, and unless you can come up with a guidline in minnesota air/ car modification law...this thread is moot. thumbsdown

my first advice is not to go nitrous to begin with. if you want power go with something conitious like s/c or turbo...i dunno about other places but it costs 20 bucks just to refill one bottle here in cali.

but in my opinion if it was nitrous any system would do (NOS, Zex, Venom, etc...). get a wet set up with WOT switch and not some switch on your steering wheel or console.

the guy who dynoed had AEM CAI, Greddy EVO Exhaust, NX (0, 50,75 Shot) @ 212.9 whp 216.1 tq...with a turbo you can reach the same numbers @ 6psi and you don't have to fill up the bottle all the time. thumbsup

wet system injects it into the CAI right next the throttle body. Zex is very good because of its built in control box with constantly monitors the a/f to make sure everything is running sweet. you can expect a good 20second of use out of a 10lb bottle. You want purge because it looks cool and helps the system. Remote bottle opener so you don't have to goto the trunk. Gauges and crap adds up to around 800$, not bad for 50-75hp of fun.

thank you importbabe for actually trying to answer my original question that turned into whether nitrous is legal but for everyone else i really would like to know what your opinions are of a good n2o kit for our cars specifically a gts
Your welcome, i dont know what crawled up that other guys ass and died.


i can't question what other people say? i was just trying to find out what was what. please display facts and leave personal opinions out of it. if you want to take it to that level i will.


Unless you can also prove that it is illegal in MN to posses nitrous in car than you are also wrong. so as it stands right now nobody is right or wrong. I was just posting my experience which is not a opinion but is a fact that I did not get a ticket for possesing something you say is illegal.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...you're in minnesota. you're suppposed to know. am I supposed to do that research for you? there have been numerous articles that using nitrous oxide was only for off-road use, in magazine and even the liability section in some of the nitrous packages!

i was questioning you STATING that it was indeed legal in minnesota and not wether or not some cop gave you a ticket or not. that is irrelevant...would you want me to post your quote or can you find it yourself? rofl

Back to the question of which Kit you should get.

It depends on how much of the operation you want to do yourself and how safe you want it to be.

From research that I have done, a 50 shot is a very safe amount to run on any engine. Also, many peoplehave jumped up to 75 without any major safe guards like timing retard and stronger internals.

Wet systems are nice because they spit extra fuel in with the N2O to keep the Air-Fuel mixture at the proper and optimal levels.

If you have a lot of self control then I think a 50 shot NOS system should be fine as a begining stage. But, if you think you might want to hold that little button down for longer than recommended then get a system that controls the spray for you.

Many companies make systems that only allow the N2O to be released at certain RPM's and throttle positions. Also, if you ever get the hunger for more, you can get Timing retard units that alters the firing of the spark plugs to help eliminate detonation.

Really it is what kind of money and gains you are looking for. N2O is a very safe and effective way for increasing horsepower. Alot of people blow cars up because they don't research what they are about to attempt, they also get greedy and run bigger jets than what is safe from their setup. Just do some homework and see what is best for you. I would suggest a NOS 50 shot system either wet or if you want to run a dry system then do a small amount of retarding to your timing because you have a lot of compression as is. Just be smart and you should be fine.

An auto gts with an Intake and exhaust gets 154 horsepower? Is that to the wheels? Makes you question dynos and peak horspower numbers since the auto gt is WAY below that in horsepower and suppose to keep up or even beat the auto gts.

OMG...tell me you're joking.
first of all the whole auto Gt and auto GTS myth has been debunked.there was a race held by CaliGTS and the auto GT lost...BAD. a auto GT stock can run 17.1, a stock auto gts has run 16.9 (check msn.com)
second-it's a 2ZZ engine. it would react the same way any 2zz would react.gearing is why the auto gts can supposedly lose to the auto gt.
third-don't listen to everything you hear. guys over at N.C. are pure performance guys and frown at anything auto...again this myth has already been debunked.
