NOS breaks down at about 800 deg centigrade releasing the additional oxygen which is why additional fuel is added to maintain AFRs. NOS is typically reccomended not to run above 10 secs at a time.

A full tank of nitrous lasts about 8 to 10 shots (uses) at the most.

If N20 Shots / NOS not used properly or by chance its been abused by the driver, it will blow up your engine.

Ofcourse frequent use for N20 shots can result in damaging your engine soon.

I was just thinking, if you press the brakes right after you've hit the NOS button, what would have happen? I guess the engine might not blow up, but it definitely cannot be good for the engine as well.

Please enlighten me on this.
