As i understand it, dry nos is injected into the air intake tract - in the intake plumbing or the manifold. A wet system as i understand it mixes the nos with the fuel being injected.

Isn't it illegal because you need a licence to transport it (explosive materials/gases)?

OK in NSW it is illeagle to have a NOS kit "hooked up". this means that the bottle cannot be attached to the lines. It is not illeagle to have the bottle in the car. You are correct EF 4.9 in that a dry kit is NOS only, and a wet kit mixes NOS and Fuel. Wet kits are substantially more3 expensive as they require an additional fuel pump, and lines etc. As for brands, there are several on the market now from NOS, NX Nitrous, OZNOS(australian made). I chose NOS due to prev ious experience with a NOS kit on an earlier car of mine
Nice link there EF Futura, it sums it up nicely. As to the parts i used, they are all available throu MR Landau, but i did soruce come of mine elsewhere as i wanted the kit installed straight away
