looks kind of silly to me. I can't see the little whippit cartridges doing crap considering isn't the average "big" nitrous tank only good for like 10-20 passes at a drag strip? One of those cartridges probably wouldn't last for 1 pass, and they'd probably only spray for a second or two. If you want nitrous save some cash and get a real kit.

Where is the fuel adder? What good is nitrous, without more fuel?

I guess you can custom burn a chip to run rich at WOT...but then that kinda defeats the whole purpose of saving cash. Might as well go all out and spend a couple of extra dollars more for the real thing.

The beauty of EFI is that it takes care of the fuel delivery for you. So long as you dont overclock the fuel system (and with this kit you won't) you shouldnt have a problem. Small shot systems usually work well as long as theyre installed upstream of the MAF. I see no problems with this kit as long as you opt for the larger tank. Just dont expect a long burst from the tank.

You figure the PCM has a way to guess that you've just cracked a whip-it?

EEC-V is not bad, but it ain't magic.

**edit:

Oh, I see. Upstream of the MAF?

I'm not sure about that. I think most people would say do not run nitrous thru the MAF.

It wouldn't report the correct amount of O2 to the PCM anyway, as there is a lot more O2 in nitrous (per volume) than air.
