Buncha butthurt N2O users.

I'll say this again.

NITROUS IS THE MOST DANGEROUS POWER ADDER YOU CAN USE.

Most users have never ever had a catastrophic failure with it. True. And I am glad for those who haven't. Don't wish that on anyone.

No, I've never used it. Because I don't want to sweep my engine off the track. I've drag raced for over 25 years. Dozens of events every year. Seen enough to steer me well away from it.

most backfires blow a filter apart or bust the intake . so out of 100 backfires u may see 10 that really do damage . but us said it
No, I've never used it.
so how would u know anything about it. oh ya u like lookin a videos that go kaboom . u do know n/a motors can go kaboom aswell. just overheat one. or let the oil pump fail.or have one have some bad detonation u will be picking up ur engine too. thats alot more common then a nitrous backfire and that destorys a engine.
i got to the track alot on weekends and ive seen 1 in the past 2 years that i can think off and it blew a quarter size hole in his intake. about a hour later he was back up and running .

Exactly, 1976 Chevy Monza 400 Hp 350 with Nitrous.
Very da** Fast till it Vented the Block. It ran lean on the top end one to many times. when we went to put it back together, we stayed away from the Laughing gas

But it was very fast

I'm about to get the same system because I haven't heard any bad things about ZEX except from people that don't have it......

The people that have or were beat by it love it....

Never had any problem with the ZEX kits. Nitrous Outlet has a lot more supporters here, and rightfully so. They make great kits as well. I have used their kits on customers cars with no issues. I used ZEX on mine and love it. My biggest point is there are more than one good kits out there. See what your shop or tuner recommend and have fun beating up on the cars that are afraid to use these "junk" nitrous kits

I've been using a ZEX dry kit since last fall. I'm very happy with it. It's about time now to step up to the adult size shots.....

I run Zex. On my 383 sbc vette I drilled out the nozzle a little and fitted a -4an line to it on the nitrous side. I then ran a 225 shot even tho the kit was only made to go to a 175 shot. Ran a 10.55 @ 133 and the car looked bone stock and had a pretty mild cam.

I now have a stock cammed L99, mods in sig. Putting a 100 shot into 12 psi and all is going well. Can't wait to get to the track with it. I'm wondering how high I can go with the shot size.

Without a stand alone fuel system or a bigger in tank set up I would say you're about maxed out with that 100.
