Is it safe to run n2o on a stock engine?

i've been thinkin bout nitrous but my engine is a stock h23, is it safe to run nitrous on a stock engine?

it really depends on the size of the shot, how it is done (wet or dry) and how often it is used....

i plan on getting wet, prolly 75-100 shot.

wet is safer because it injects fuel w/ the nitrous and most times has a tuning system along w/ the nitrous system. I don't think you'll have a problem, but i'm not claiming to be an expert at N2O....

thanks for the help, as long as i have a resonable chance of safley runnin n2o, then i'll probly get it.

75-100 is a bit much to be safe...i would run 65wetshot... it's a 39 mm jet that goes right into the intake... just remember to retard your timing.. at least 2 degrees... i did 2.5 to be extra safe, only downside is that i'm boggin down up to 2500 rpm. but in a race you wont ever be in that rpm range.. and if you wanna bump it up to 75 shot, it's 4 degrees timing retard, and 7 degrees for 100 shot!!

and if you wanna bump it up to 75 shot, it's 4 degrees timing retard, and 7 degrees for 100 shot!!

this is a stupid statement, dont listen to it. while it is true you should retard your timing more as you increase your shot, an exact amount like he is saying is not accurate. thats his own personal judgement.

but i do agree that 75-100 is too much. i would run a 65 like he suggested.

Ran a 75 shot for quite awhile on a B16. Follow the directions like it says, and you typically will not run into problems.

Retard timing 4 degrees, 2 heat ranges colder on your plugs, and always put in 91' octane fuel. And dont use it at every damn stoplight.

Can I also ask?
b16 in 4gen /stock/ and dry small shot /like nx incognito - round +25hp/ it`s that good idea ?? any tips where to find some kind of small set n2o/nx,nos,elb..etc/ to buy?

yeah i forgot to mention plugs!! keep a set of NGK 9's handy for when you wanna spray!! i put those in for when i race at the track, and i keep a set of NGK 11's for daily drive... the 9's reduce chances of detonation!!

also the guys down at the shop that builds my car have a used ZEX wet kit for sale... $400.00
