If the car is prepped to use it, its not any worse than a turbocharger. However, gas prices arent that wallet friendly, so if you're thinking of boosting, I'd say turbocharge, on a long run its cheaper. 10pound bottle isnt big, and you can use it all in one evening.How bad is nitrous oxide for your car? I mean, not that I'm thinking of getting it, but it could be a future possibility, cause it's cheaper than a supercharger/turbo. Also, is there a big difference between direct and dry injection?
I'd have to say no, its not. It will increase strain on the engine. Nitrous prepped engines are build the same way as turbo-/supercharged engines are, low compression and strengthened internals.is it a good and safe investment for a car with a 1.8L 4-banger?
i'd hafta disagree. i'd say DP is safer than wet because then u ensure an even mixture in each cylinder. with wet, u can still get a large enough difference in cylinders that it's dangerous. as a general rule, anything over 100shot should be through DP, under 100, and wet is fine.Flashmn said:If the car is prepped to use it, its not any worse than a turbocharger.

Direct injection = each runner has a nozzle with gas and fuel going in
Dry injection = only gas injected through nozzle
Wet injection = gas and fuel injected though nozzle
Wet injection is the most reliable and cost effective method and the least risky method of n2o delivery.
Flashmn said:Wet is safer because you inject fuel, ok if you just have one point, sure you'll get uneven distribution of fuel, but since its combined with the n2o mist, approximately the correct amount of both will go to each cylinder. Dry is generally less safer, because you're trusting the injectors to inject a substancially larger amount of fuel into the combustion chambers, whilst it may sound ok, what happens when you get a variance in the injector or if the injector malfunctions for some reason. Your engine would be done for.
I'd go with wet myself.
Which are only resistors.. so you can basically make two variable resistors (potentiometers) and then adjust the RPM's without pulling or installing new pills.The rpm pills are small plug in used in the window switch to select the ''on'' rpm and the ''off rpm''
