Work Safely with Nitrous
Always wear eye protection and
W when working with lines or hoses that contain pressurized
nitrous oxide or fuel. Never transport nitrous cylinders loose
in a boot or the back of a van / lorry and especially NOT within
a vehicle's interior whether the cylinder is full OR empty.
Always disconnect the GROUND side of the battery when working
on any electrical components.
When testing and activating the
Never should this be done on a public road or motorway, Nitrous
kits should Be used and tested off road, on a track or private
land ONLY, using it in public will put the health and lives
of you and other at risk.
After using your nitrous system
You should always make sure that the valve on the nitrous cylinder
is turned off and they activationswitch inside the car is turned
Nitrous Oxide won't fix problems
Before you install your nitrous system, be sure your engine
is in good mechanical condition. Intermittent wiring problems,
etc., can lead to erratic system performance and possible engine
Never drill, machine, weld, deform, scratch, drop, or modify
a nitrous oxide tank in ANY way whatsoever!
Never overfill nitrous cylinders
That little bit extra will put you and others at risk of injury.
More often than not, when the cylinder warms up, the pressure
goes above the limit of the safety relief disc and you lose
all the nitrous you just paid for.
All the power comes from the fuel, not the nitrous
Nitrous oxide is simply a tool that allows you to adjust how
much and how quickly the engine burns the fuel. If the fuel
isn't there, the power won't be either.
Avoid detonation at all times
Nitrous enhanced detonation is much more damaging than detonation
that occurs when naturally- aspirated due to the increased amount
of fuel available for releasing energy and the fact that more
oxygen is present.
If, when your system is activated, something doesn't feel or
BACK OFF: If you hear any detonation or feel anything unusual,
get off the throttle. It's a lot easier to check everything
over than it is to just try to drive through it and damage expensive
Don't activate or have the system activated when you
hit the stock rev limiter.
The stock rev limiter is a fuel cut-off. If you cut fuel while
you're injecting nitrous, you're instantly very lean. This momentary
lean condition has the potential of causing engine damage.
