100 shot NOS safe?

Is a 100 shot of nitrous safe for a stock motor? I was told 100 shot should be alright to run on a stock motor. I think I might order a dry kit from NOS for $700 just so I am not getting embarrassed by Integras. I have saved about half the money I need for the turbo kit so I should have it in a couple months.

Any opinions on what brand I should go with? Alot of kits I see are universal for all year Mustangs and go for around $500. NOS makes one specially for '96-'98 Mustangs adjustable from 75-150 and it goes for $693.95. Is it worth the extra money? What is the difference between wet and dry? I will probably stick with a 100 shot because of the stock plastic intake.

I'm not certain but I believe the NOS kit is a wet kit which is why it's more money. The difference is that the dry kit has one solenoid to spray nitrous into the intake while a wet kit has an extra solenoid to also spray fuel in at the same time.

They both have their pros and cons. A dry kit is obviously easier to install, but a wet kit should be safer due to the lesser chance that you'll have a lean condition. However with a wet kit there is the possibility that fuel could puddle in the intake which could cause an intake destroying hood popping backfire.

I think you'll be safe with either one as long as you do exactly as the manufacturer recommends.

Thanks for the link. The kit I am looking at is a dry system and it says the extra fuel is delivered by the EFI. I thought it was adjustable but it only comes with a 150 size jet but I think I can buy a 100. Here's a link to summit racing. Is this kit worth the extra money or should I look into ZEX for $500?

Where is the $500 zex kit? I tried looking it up and the one I found for a 4.6L Mustang was $635.

What brand to buy is up to personal preference. The Zex kit uses an electronic box which reads your tps voltage to know when you're at full throttle while the NOS kit uses a micro switch. The Zex kit seems a bit more foolproof because it supposedly "reads bottle pressure and adjusts fuel enrichment to give optimum power safely at all bottle pressures". On the other hand some people may prefer the NOS system because of it's simplicity.

Yea at that price I'd probably go with the Zex kit if I were buying. Looks like you can select a lower power level too with that kit.

My only real gripe with Zex is the color of the equipment. What were they thinking when they made it bright purple??

LOL. I don't really like purple either but I suppose if I wanted to I could sell the ZEX bottle and buy a NOS one. Now for the decision. What should I buy first. Bassani SS O/R X-pipe for $300 or ZEX kit for $450. I only have $450 to play with. :? I hate decisions.

Yea thats a tough decision, the exhaust will make the car sound mean but won't ad anywhere near the hp as the nitrous. The nitrous will make the car fast, but you won't even know its there during day to day driving.
