The dangerous part is the self-control N2O requires... It is very easy to get GREEDY!!! The instant torque of N2O is a friggin' rush and is very addictive! And it will leave you wanting more and more!!!

Might need to get into a rehab center after your mind and body start building tolerance for nitrous. Getting off nitrous might cause a nasty withdrawal enough to cause hospitalization.

When you think of nitrous think of this,

This is your brain, and this is your brain on nitrous.

I ran a 36 hp setup on a 2000 Harley Sportster for years on the street. The engine made around 90 hp naturally and 130 on the bottle. The bike weighed 490 lbs. By no means was this 'out of control' provided some simple rules of use were followed. Many of these rules are taken care of by all the control that are available. If your opinion of nitrous is based on any movie or TV show, then please don't share your opinion. OP if you are seriously interested, find a local speed shop or two or three which sells and installs nitrous oxide systems and speak with them at length about it. Find out the weak parts in the 3.6 first. Are these forged pistons? If not I would limit the jetting quite a bit because hyper and cast pistons do not do well with the forces of nitrous. It is quite safe when properly set up and operated given than any power added (nitrous, supercharger, turbo) is going to cause more wear to engine components.

Ran it for 5 years on my GTO. 3 years with a 100 shot and 2 years with a 150 with 0 issues. run a fuel pressure safety switch, a window switch/tps and since i heard the V6's have fuel issues you may want to look into a dedicated fuel system. Be smart about the amount you spray and the higher the activation the easier it is on the engine. 3500 rpm is a good starting point. if it's an auto have the deactivation a couple hundred rpm below the shift point and it will be easier on the transmission. Sorry if anything I said was a repost because I didn't feel like reading the post. Also Nitrous outlet is a very helpful company and very community oriented and i'm sure they would be more than happy to answer any of your technical questions. Good luck with everything and have fun.
