Nitrous is possible for just about any car. Just start small and work your way up. I would recommend getting a accurate A/F meter and EGT gauge, and Nitrous Pressure Gauge. With all honesty I can't think of why it wouldn't work. Disaster strikes only when you get greedy and don't do proper tuning.

Nitrous in the proper ratio to fuel is safe for any engine until you get greedy and try to force your lil 1.8l to make 250 horse! Be reasonable with the shot and tune carefully, and you should be fine.

NOS = Nitrous Oxide Systems. A brand

Nitrous = what you use to make a car go faster.

Just clarifying for you :)

i was just messing with you, you didn't offend me i just don't want people to sound stupid, i almost smacked on the of the local guys for saying the word "NOS" in a sentance twice. I was like okay WTF do you want and he finally realized what i was getting at, needless to say i don't think he has said the work "NOS" in front of me. Sorry it's just like a pet peeve, i just like to think people that buy Subaru's are more educated. Don't want em soundin like some run of the mill civic kid.

oh yes on a side note a CRX with nitrous got towed in last night, yeah bottle was empty and mounted behind the passenger seat and the line runs into the spare tire well and stops there, he's got a ZEX sticker right on the side window(not smart) and the bottle in plain sight. He's supposedly been running nitrous for about 6 months and no one would race him cause of it...now if they had ANY clue what they were looking for they would have known he was talking smack...so much money wasted on a CRX HF(the really slow one).

I think this is very funny! The whole nitrous thing... It's kinda like rollerblading. If you wanted to be politically correct you would refer to it as "In-Line skating". The term "rollerblade" is a company that makes skates. Its so generic of a term now in-line skating is termed rollerblading. Same smell. :stinky: Its funny how brands become genaric terms describing certain products.

Q-tips - Cotton Swabs
NOS - Nitrous Oxide
Rollerblading - In-Line Skating

-Erik
One with lots of NOS!
:roflmao:
