There's a hole in the intake after the Mass Air Sensor because this is where the nitrous is sprayed. He ran a dry system, probably zex. If it's zex, it's very simple how it works. The nitrous comes from the bottle, goes through the no2 line, through the microprocessor unit, which activates the solenoid, which shoots the nitrous into the intake manifold. Then you hold on tight as hell as hope you can stay on the road. :)

ok, makes sense... but since its a DRY set up, wtf is being sprayed? i mean, isnt nitrous a liquid? or is it like a gas? then whats so bad about running a dry set up as opposed to a wet?

nope, osama had a wet N.O.S. kit.. it is like a 1/4" tap into the intake.

you can plug the hole with a very short 1/4" bolt, and it is in a location that you can't see without taking intake off.

nitrous oxide = gas

wet means that fuel and nitrous are sprayed from the nozzle.. dry system just shoots nitrous, and the ecu is supposed to handle the fuel duty..

NOS dry kit (5122 i think). direct port. love it. no problems at all. i barely use it because there's not much racing going on since i started college, but when i used to race at home i'd probably refill every 2 or 3 weeks because i only raced on weekends. the place i go to charges $2.50 per pound to refill, so $25 to fill the bottle. :D

N20 is actually a liquid. When it decompresses it becomes a gas. Shooting it too close to the intake manifold will cause it to puddle up. This doesn't give enough time to atomize and them...BAM, you blew a piston.

N2O is a liquid at high pressure, at 1 atmosphere it is a gas. hence the name "laughing gas" etc. and redline is right about the shooting too close - you want to give it time to gasify and disperse.
