ive heard this before and it always made me laugh

nitrous is like vaiagra, its awsome when you got it, but your ****ed when you run out.

i wouldnt wantto put it in my car, because i wouldnt want to spary on every race i ever did. id much rather go for the engine build and have the power all th time.

but i guess the price is right, 300$ and it will make your car hella fast.

It's like fuel, don't be a douchebag and run out and your fine.

The guy on youtube blew his manifold because his window switch failed or so he says. In reality it was probably a piss poor install and a bad wiring job. Do it right and you won't blow your manifold even if it's made out of cardboard.

Oh, I won't use the nitrous everyday,since I barely get a race out where I am located lol.I am just going to jump on this opportunity for 300 dollars I am saving myself 200 dollars and the guy is local by me so it makes it even better,but I am going to get the 2.4 intake manifold still,just to be a little more safer on the side where I won't blow off the 2.2 intake manifold lol.

The manifold really wont be that much safer. It's still a plastic composite not a sheetmetal manifold like you should have to run nitrous. I wouldn't go with nitrous without a tune and engine prep.

The dangers of nitrous are greatly exaggerated. Seriously, just make sure you have all the safety precautions, run a conservative shot, and you will be fine. BTW make sure it's a wet kit since you have no way to tune the extra fuel you need. Nitrous always boils down to not doing anything hastily or crazily, take your time, do it right, and enjoy.
