Nitrous on cars - January 28, 2013, 01:59 PM

Does anyone have experience with nitrous on cars? I have been building a mustang over the winter and would like some feedback. I've researched on car specific forums but am looking more toward the legality from a Virginia aspect of things.

Were you able to pass inspection? I'm concerned with being pulled over and asked to "pop the trunk". If so, what fines am I looking at? Can I just say it's off and only used at the track?

oh, and I researched the law. It says it has to be disconnected. Would the bottle being "off" and the armed switch "off" count as disconnected?

10 oz stealth bottle for the win. Or a 2.5lb bottle hidden in a false subwoofer box will work well also for a little more capacity!

My friend just got pulled over for NOS in his Camaro and even with it unplugged the cop was gonna give him a ticket. He got off the ticket because the friend he was traveling with knew the cop but moral of the story you will get a ticket.

I wonder if I can just throw some flippers and a mask in there and make them think it's scuba gear.

Been there and dealt with the cops. Big thing is having the line completely disconnected from the bottle; they need to think you only use it at the track). Some may try and give you a ticket but they never carry weight through court.

I never had a problem with inspections as long as the wires, lines, and mounting were secure/safe.

Think about it before running it, I spent the equivalent of a turbo kit just to keep things on the safe side and refilling the bottle got really old, really fast.

If you have questions about the install let me know.

Here's the setup I ran on my neon (srt4)

I didn't like how unpredictable an n2o setup can be...

I have run so much nitrous on so many cars over the years. I got popped in Chicago for transporting a pressurized cylinder. But for the most part i never had a problem. Than again a lot of my kits were for street racing so they were all hidden.

I once hid a 10lbs bottle in the actual seat padding of a car. On one build we ran 6 2lb bottles all over the car. We would fill the bottles by pressure alone since it would take about 2 hours to get all the bottles out.


Run it rich and turn back the timing unless you like replacing pistons.

Thats the way to do it. Hide everything. I hid my 20lbs bottle in the spare tire well of my 3rd gen Z/28 w/ a remote bottle opener. Its easier to hide the stuff under the hood when you have an air cleaner on.
