What is the max amount of NOS that I can run on my Swift GTi with no mods to the fuel system? It has 98000km on it and the head has been worked for better flow. Also have a 2.25 exhaust and filter. I would like to run a 50 shot but I'm afraid of blowing the engine. Will be getting an air/fuel gauge with it too. <p></p><i></i>

are you going wet system or dry system?<br><br>With a wet system, 50hp will be no problem for the fuel pump, or the stock ignition. As for experiences with the dry set up, there are a few other guys on here that are better to ask on that. <br><br>Wasted 2 bottles of NOS on the 40-50hp jets lately and no problems with the motor. <br><br>transmission, axle/wheel hop, clutch, are usually always the biggest concern when running NOS.<br><br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>

You'll be fine with a 50 shot. But, if something is wrong with the engine to begin with. Nos will speed the process of a cooked engine.<br><br>Good luck... <p></p><i></i>
