Ok, so I've been seriously looking into a Nitrous kit for my stock '89 L98. I'm going to be honest and say I don't really know much about Nitrous, but I have read alot of the FAQ's and info pages so I know most of the basics. I've been looking at these two kits...

and

What do I need to know when purchasing a nitrous system?
What else do I need to buy that isn't included here?
What purge valve do I need to buy?
Would you recommend Nitrous?

Any other info would be greatly appreciate...

:huh::cheers:

I personally like the kit made by Holley. It comes with a throttle body plate for the nitrous lines to feed the plenum. Holley part # 05151NOS. It is basically a complete kit, very complete instructions. You will have to get a purge kit.I am currently building a nitrous system for my LS1.

Where did you get the NOS smiley icon? That is great.

what ever brand you get, make DAMN SURE its a "WET" not a "DRY" KIT
and you both read the instructions and adjust the ignition timing and fuel system to match the combos requirements

most DRY kits that relie on the EFI to read the A/F ratio change on the O2 sensors and COMPENSATE by richining the injector flow rate have a very bad habbit of burning pistons under some condition,s WET systems that spray a mix of nitrous and fuel in a fog are FAR MORE DEPENDABLE and MUCH less likely to burn PARTS

Thanks for all the info, I've heard alot of horror stories about Nitrous and I guess I'm a little sketchy about getting it... I can't afford to be replacing engines. I just want the easiest and safest setup, I don't need anything with huge shot hp. Like a 75 shot should do just fine.
