honestly i don't think people are crying about it. I think they are just trying to give a public service announcement to advise people against it due to the high risk it has with an engine. Im sure someone will counter this post saying that it is safe if you know what you are doing. Even so, its just never a good idea. At least wait until your warranty is out.

nitrous is no less safe, its improper use that causes most of the failures.

most of the time its from someone spraying too early (too low of rpm), or launching on a manual trans car full throttle then bogging, seen that a lot.

its more shocking to an engine than supercharger/turbocharger but at the same time the iat's are MUCH lower. more or less evens out.

making big power with nitrous is the hard part (on stock engines anyway). sticking with a 75-100shot, and using it properly (and sparingly) only at the track, is just fine.

Any dealership would be able to recognize if you brought the car in for damage caused by NOS and do a thorough investigation. The amount of damage that NOS can do and the price tag on the repair, no dealership will just open the hood and say "ok yeah we'll warranty this.....we trust you that it happened on its own".

If you want to juice your car I'd say go for it, I dont think you're going to find many people here that are wanting to purposely trash their engine on such sweet a ride.
