nitrous

Can I run a shot of nitrous on a stock WRX? All I have is turbo-back exhaust and I figured that I could run maybe a 75 shot, or maybe even a 100?

Yes you can, but on a mostly stock car, it's a good way to blow your engine up. If you want to run it, I would say not to go too much over a 50 shot. Even a 75 shot might be pushing it.

For the cash that you'd spend on a good nitrous set up, you could buy some form of engine management and tune the extra power out of your engine safely. I'm not trying to talk you out of the giggle gas, but it's not really going to be best at this point in your cars mod path.

Just my $.02

Here's a thread with some pretty good info in it though.
Nitrous ?

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

alright, understandable. what about an intercooler sprayer? like the n-tercooler system? how well would that work? or, what would i need to run a 75 or 100 shot? like what fuel upgrades and how would i get a good tune?

I've never used that system so I can't really elaborate on it.

A good alternative to something like that would be a co2 type system. Nitrous is pretty expensive for what it is, Co2 on the other hand is a little cheaper. This system isn't bad.

Hmmmm....a 50 shot of nitrous, or a cobb access port flashed to stage 2.

Let's see....a 50 shot of nitrous will give you instant gratification every now and then.

A WRX flashed to stage 2 will give you another 58HP all day long, and it's done safely. Not to mention all the other benefits you get with an AP and the ability to pro tune and grow with it.

Don't waste your money on nitrous, get a cobb accessport and be nice to your 2.0l

I was running a 50shot on my WRX at the track with no problems. Just run one step richer of a fuel jet. I had UTEC and was somewhat tuned for it tho.
