I know nothing about NOS, can you have a bigger tank with this system? How long on average would that purple tank last? How much do they cost to fill up? Why would this be better than turbo or SC?

Does your Active Fuel Control and your A/F ratio controller retard the timing of the engine? I understand this is critical to prevent from blowing your pistons through your hood, but I would like to hear from you on how this works electronically.

And Bently78, I have heard great things of Nitrous Oxide with a turbo. Usually the big turbos have some trouble spooling up quickly at low rps, but you usually can engage the nitrous early, spooling the turbo faster, and generating even more power gains, sooner, for better times down the track.

But I am no expert. I reccomend that your go read Spike's sticky on Nitrous information in the Forced induction thread

Good preoduct by the way. Just wondering on the timing issue.

ZEX offers a larger 15 lb. bottle as well. Nitrous is a little different than adding a supercharger or turbocharger... because all you have to do is flip the switch or press the button!

Forrest asked a question that I would like to know also, regarding retarding engine 2 degrees per 100 shot, can anyone address this? As the thread on most asked questions skipped right over that one...
