came across this 14.6 cobalt LS(for those guys who didnt think the LS could go fast), and when he goes for a second pass down the track with a mustang, he loses it!

I never can get vids to embed here either.

The title of this thread should be "this is what happens when you spray on the launch. Rule #1 of using nitrous is "do not spray on the launch". Rule #2 of nitrous is "do not spray on the launch".

Nitrous is perfectly safe if you aren't stupid.

That's Dan, he's a good guy. I bought his strut bar since he converted his 2.2 to a drag car with a 1450hp engine.

Not to blow my own horn, but before my Balt, I had a 98 Kia Sephia with a 1.8 engine and NOS and I was running in the low 11's. Truth be told, after a year blew a hole in the block...but it was a fun year.

OBVIOUSLY wired incorrectly if he did, or set wrong.

It hardly matters when you spray from a dig off the line. You dont really want to risk it until higher RPM's
exactly! If you spray below about 3k RPMs the air velocity in the intake is not enough to keep the nitrous in suspension so it falls and puddles in the manifold. Then it goes BOOM!!!!!

It wouldn't have mattered. Maybe it wouldn't have destroyed the manifold but it still would have caused catastrophic damage.

Where does it all come from? Do you have a ride with some ridiculous shot of nitrous? Or just alot of trial and error like the rest of us lol.
Myself and my two best friends have a LS1 Camaro that we race competitively with. It has a dual stage direct port set up running a 150 shot on the first stage and a 300 shot the second. Honestly though it was a lot of trial and error and some help from some gurus along the way. I've done installs on the Camaro, a GSX eclipse, a WRX, a Mustang Cobra, and Impalla SS. I will probably do a 50 shot on my Cobalt when I start getting bored with stage 2.
