Hey, you need to understand that N20 is harmless by itself. Well, it's good for a laugh and forty winks...

Now if you over nitrous your engine, it will run lean, and blow up. Just like if you were to run too lean, ie not enough fuel and too much air.

If your nitrous leaks, nothing really happens. Your engine will flood because extra fuel is being injected, but no nitrous to burn the fuel. So you will slow down.

There are two dangerous instances:

1. Over NOSed and engine blows. A really bad blowout could be dangerous, ie damage firewall and compromise passenger safety.

2. Nitrous leaks from tank at high rate. Then the tank acts as a missile and flies around. Like the end of Gone In 60 Seconds, except the missile is inside your car.

So it's not safe as it is made out to be...?
If by any problem you end up being lean, you blow your engine!

That's just bad tuning, then. Like using too small injectors or carburettor jets, or underfuelling. It's dangerous like any other bad tune is.

Hello to the gurus of NOS ...

Would someone be able to tell me if NOS can be used on a diesel (naturally aspirated and turbo) ?

Cheers,

Yes, NOS kits are available for Diesel too.
In fact there are plenty of videos on YouTube...

Yes it is possible. Zex produces NOS systems for diesels - Zex.com - Nitrous Performance
