nitrous isn't just about what size shot you have. It's what system you use (and what safety devices it has in place), if the install was done correctly, and most importantly how often you use it.

Well if YOU don't have that much money, my advice is save for engine mods...if you blow your engine with nitrous...will your parents pay for a new motor??? Insurance wont cover it....warranty wont cover it....you will have to buy a new motor 10k+ labor....ie about 14k total....thats the reason why most people dont run Nitrous on this board.....

PS. Why do you want nitrous so bad?? you watch fast and the furious too many times or something???

look into a Zex 75shot kit. It's one of the safest systems around. Reads bottle pressure and also will not inject when it senses a lean condition.

It doesn't matter how much you use it (i know it causes wear)....but i mean, it only takes one time for something to go wrong and fook your engine....

Just be careful bro....i wouldn't want to be in your shoes if something happens...

except that they can plug in a diagnostics unit, open up and the engine, and get a good idea of what happened...
they will do anything in their power not to lose money, remeber that...

Remember he is in High School...so he can probally run a 14 flat with a 75 shot if he can shift.

He is most likely racing hondas/acura's which can only do 14 flat max without turbo/supercharger/engine swap. (I know Honda NA can do upto 10's but not without a full motor build)

you could definetly handle a 75 shot with the zex brand...but don't waste your money...bmw is a car with class...not a fast and frustrated japanese car

Seriously, nitrous and bmw's just don't go good together. Save up some cash and get either a supercharger or the stage iv kit. From what I hear about both, you won't regret it.

Nitrous sucks. I would explain, but it doesnt need explanation.

ok ok, i think he got enough negative posts, i believe he asked for help in the matter, not whether or not he should get it, he has obviously made up his mind...

a friend of mine runs NOS on his 323Ci. It kicks you back like you just got rear ended lol, i dont know much about his system though. you'd have to research what kind of system is best for a bmw (i.e.- wet shot, dry shot, and theres one other kind)...his bottle is like the 20 or 30 lb bottle so i dont know what "shot" it is. All i know is he has it and hasnt run into any problems. like you said, he only uses it when he needs to...good luck, just do some research on the net, search for "NOS +bmw" and it should come up with some good info, maybe even some applications, good luck...
