Hey everyone, I am considering installing a small (maybe like 50 or 75 shot) of Nitrous (most likely dry shot from NOS Nitrous) however I have a few questions seings how this is the first car I would have nitrous on. Firstly I am leasing the car and was wondering if there would be a way to install the kit so if I had to un-install it there would have been no trace of having it on the car. Also which kit do you guys think would best fit our car? Would there be anything else I would have to purschase beside the kit (ie engine parts) or could I spray with a stock engine? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks guys!

I'll let you know that after this friday. I got that guy w/ the yellow CSS talking trash and he "supposedly" has N2O on his car. I am wanting him to run once regular then once w/ nitrous to see the difference.

Nitrous Now

Hey Guys,
This is my first post on hear but I have browsing for a couple weeks now. I currently have a yellow 05 SS and have begun my engine modification. In a few hours I will have installed my nitrous kit. It is the Zex Progressive Shot System, works it's way up to around 55 HP. My local performance guy suggested it and he has not lied to me yet. It has controls that will not allow it to run too lean or too rich and guarantees it's HP numbers. According to my local shop the supercharger will almost double the power from this nitrous. Not only will it cool the air allowing the supercharger to compress more and cooler air, there will be the HP gains from the actual n2o itself. I will post some pictures and time slips on friday, as that is our track day and we got rained out last weekend. Can't wait to try this out.

Go with a wet kit. And I would splurge for a window switch. You should be fine with a 50 shot, I don't know about 75, but I would try the 50 first. NX arguably has some of the best kits on the market, so you should check them out. Hope that helped a bit.

depends on where it's plumed on which kit you need correct? the way he was saying it would be in front of the blower, he should definitely use a dry, and not a wet

Yes, I agree. Go with a smaller shot first to see how well it takes to it.
The wet/dry question is more a matter of safety. Wet is safer to run than dry since it's mixed in with the fuel, but then again like someone else posted it depends on where it's plumbed in.
There's a guy over here with a Firehawk running a God-knows-what-but-it's-damn-fast DRY shot. Of course, they also called him the "engine-killer" in a recent newspaper article.

Well I called a local vendor who sells and installs nitrous kits, and he said that the best kit for a supercharged car would be a wet shot, and that it didn't have to be direct ported and he said that it could easily be uninstalled if I needed to take the car in for warranty work or when I am turning it in when the lease is up, and he said that there would be no post evidence of it after it was uninstalled. His estimate was 1100 for a 50 wet shot installed, however I didnt ask him what kit that includes... i'll be going in with my car on Friday. He said that the switch can be installed in several different spots, or I could have an on off switch, when turned on and the gas floored all the way it sprays, which sounded good, but then again I burn through first so fast as it is I dont think I would be good enough at shifting in time so I'm not too sure yet. Anyone on this forum who has nitrous that could give me some pointers?

Well yeah depending on where it is plumbed like everyone is saying determines if you want wet or dry.

$1100 installed sounds like A LOT! I was thinking $500-$700 installed at the most. For everything you need. Here is an awesome thread that you should read before you start spraying... http://focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=11534.

For $1100, the kit should be fully programmable, meaning you can tell it when to spray and when not to. Like no spray in first, spray in all of 2nd and all of 3rd. Anyways read that thread before you buy or have a kit installed.

Please edit your previous post and delete all that crap, it is jaking up the thread, I know you have contributed to this thread with earlier posts but that last post deffinetely needs to be deleted.

Laugh. I'm sure that once a Cobalt SS/SC forums FAQ gets built, there will be a load of N2O information in it gleaned from the forums itself.

I believe the best you can do is probably ( depending where you plum the nozzle) is to have another intake hose on the side. No matter what, drilling a hole may be needed. Or you can hide it underneath & put in a rubber plug so there will be no air escape. ;)

Sorry about that, obviously you know what I mean though :cool: ...anyway the kit is on now and tomorrow night at Freaky Friday in Fayetteville, NC is where it will be tested out. Should have some good videos uploaded within the weekend. It was installed by Competition Auto in town and installation and parts total came to about $720...wet is the way to go with a supercharged car...will keep everyone updated...

You guys going direct port or before the blower? Every company we've contacted and talked to an actual person, has suggested NOT spraying before the blower. Everything from possible explosions of the blower from a compressed air/fuel/n20 mix, to the intercooler fins having gas pool up on them, changing you metered shot.

Quite interested in it myself. Just want to find the safest way for me and the engine. Some of the GM people we talked to said a direct port is the only safe, professional way to install it on the LSJ.

How many of you are running juice right now? I know of one or two Redlines, all going preblower wet shots. Everyone I talk to without a Redline/Cobalt/Cobra thinks that's nuts.

ZEX suggests going with the injection before the blower for best results - They say that forced induction vehicles really benifeit from this and its totally safe...
