    I could think of 10,000 things I would buy for the raptor before I ever even thought about NOS.

    Bad investment idea.

    I haven't even talked to him about it. Wanted it get feedback from you all before I did. I know the ls3 took a 300 shot and liked it. I didn't realize we had weak pistons. Sounds like a bad idea. I figured I would toss it out and see what you all think.

    Ever seen formula offroad ?

    NOS is something they use to get the wheels spinning at faster then that they aqualy move.
    One of the heavies verhicles to be able to aqua-plain across lakes


    So for uses in combo with a raptor
    - dragracing
    - short course racing
    - GLRE time attack

    Even tough fun. I don't see me going for it fast
    Rather build an engine like biggest or
    Livernois 6.6L with the TMX/UPP twin turbo

    With my corvette I went all out building a beast with a supercharging and ended up with one bad ass daily driver that ran 10.2 quarter mile and 625rwhp. I will tell you I regret I ever did that. I wish I would have went with heads and nos. I did some autocross and it was a pain in the rear with overpowering the track and overheating. And in average everyday I never used the power but the I was always stuck with the heating issues. In Florida it was hard to drive in the summer. I would not do that again. That's why I thought about nos for an occasional spray.

    Should be fine with a good tune and all supporting mods.....but I wouldn't try it personally!

    150-200 shot is plenty enough btw. You will burn through bottles so fast with a 300 shot.

    I had a 125 shot on a mustang and I felt like I was refilling bottles constantly.
