Nitrous is like a hot girl with an STD, you always want to hit it but are afraid of the consequences.
I purposely down shift when i pass a prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

you would be rubbing if you cut off two full coils. or at least i think you would be. look at burnts car for example. hes pretty low and cutting off two coils would drop it considerably more

your ride would be f-u-c-k-e-d. 2 coils is probably withouth a doubt dangerous. i would do 1 coil if you were even going to cut them

Never ever cut coils, you end up riding like a brick.

one coil is even really unsafe, everybody gonna tell you not to do it, but if you do it then its all you. one coil might get you another inch-ish
