i just did a search and i couldn't find all the info i was looking for.

my questions were
-which brand is the most reliable? NOS, ZEX or VENOM?
-whats the smallest "shot" available? 20shot?
-is 20shot OK for a stock bottom end? how long would it last?
-if i build the bottom end for NOS, can it be used for Turbo too?(ditch the NOS when i buy the Turbo kit)
-will building the bottom for NOS cost the same as for a Turbo? (im guessing yes)
-do i have to adjust the fuel requirements? how?
-are there any god websites that explain the pros and cons of NOS?
-am i forgetting anything?

ya i was just wondering because.... a friend wanted to know, yes thats it.

I thought nos.com would have a faq but its a sommunications company. I dont know NOS's web site, but they have a faq there.

Smallest shot available in Nx is 55 shot though. That should definitely be safe though. I'm running 75shot</font>

im assuming by NX you mean Nitrous Express? are they the same as NOS (the company that is) is that 75 shot on a stock bottom end? if it is i don't think that'll last to long will it?

No NX (Nitrous Express) is a different company than NOS. I know a guy thats been running the NX 75 shot on his lude for 2 years with no problems. Just depends on how often you use it. Of course its not gonna last too long if you use it every other day. Just gotta be careful. Good Luck with your decision.

-which brand is the most reliable? NOS, ZEX or VENOM?

This is going to be highly opinionated by alot of people. I use a NOS brand system. I fully support NOS and their products. I am afraid to go with ZEX or any system that is controlled by a computer system, if I am going to **** up my car, I want -me- to be the one that ****s it up, not some lame Nitrous computer.

-whats the smallest "shot" available? 20shot?

Your car is fine running a 50 shot. No problem. That is what I am running. Just don't use it every day.. it is for racing, not pimpin around town.

-is 20shot OK for a stock bottom end? how long would it last?

As I said, go with a 50 shot, you are not even going to notice a 20 shot to tell you the truth.

-if i build the bottom end for NOS, can it be used for Turbo too?(ditch the NOS when i buy the Turbo kit)

Yup, same price, same parts.


-will building the bottom for NOS cost the same as for a Turbo? (im guessing yes)

Yup.


-do i have to adjust the fuel requirements? how?

Get a V-AFC, you can feed your engine more fuel with that puppy.



-are there any god websites that explain the pros and cons of NOS?

Try overboost.com
