running nitrous

Anybody running nitrous out there? Any tips systems or set ups that work?
Seems like the way to go to knock heat down and add power! What does it cost to fill a bottle? How long does it last?:smoke

I don't run it in my truck but I do run it in my drag car...nitrous around here is about $4.50 a pound and how long the battle lasts depends on the size of shot you are spraying and how long you hold the button down.

Yep.....nitrous is totally safe and fine for the motor when it is used correctly.

It's all in the tune up...I've never ran it on a diesel but I run it on my Duster at the strip. I run a 100hp shot. You just need to make sure you have the extra fuel needed with the extra oxygen the n20 is adding so you don't run lean.

its really easy on a diesel. Just make sure its over fueled and add nitrous a little at a time until you just clean up the fuel.

Diesels don't run lean so you don't have to worry about that. (actually they do, almost always, but it doesn't have the adverse affects it does in a gas engine)
