Hey all,

What are the 'Shady Shot' dry NOS kits like (9oz bottle & all accessories)?

I'm thinking about fitting one to my JMM Dev 5 equipped EL XR6, what do you think ...will it do more harm than good?

Says it can add 50HP per shot, ...is that applicable to an EL?

Stick with a good brand like NOS or Edelbrock.

A 50-horse shot from a nine-ounce bottle won't last very long at all.



Play it safe and fit a "Single fogger, wet kit".

Any good performance shop will know what you're talking about if you ask for that.

Play safe and the fun lasts a lot longer.

Is that similar to one of those NOS Sneaky Pete kits?

Not sure on the NOS kits, but is it really worth saving $500 or whatever it would be on a motor thats worth a bucket load more...

Hey Mark, go grab the latest issue of Zoom, or the one before... the one with the 20B drag rail on the front cover, belching flames.
It's got a nice writeup on the pros and cons of n20, and the different bits involved.
I learnt a s**t from it.

Hehe, is that a 'deliberate' typo in your profile mate?

EF 'f@rt', ...does it run off a 100 HP (Hot Pepper) shot of 'Nitr-a***' Oxide? :P

The cover car isnt the 20B rail, it should have been but...
The cover is yellow with the Autobarn Supra on it.
Vinyls and s**t.
Oh, it also says "NITROUS FOR DUMMIES" down the bottom of the front page :D
I'd copy it out, but its a fairly large artical, and im only a small lazy bastard.
