    Nitrous for GenF GTS?

    What are your opinions on getting a nitrous kit installed on a 2015 GTS. As it is at the moment it has had high flow injectors, larger lower supercharger pulley, vcm air intake, Texas comp cam, and 3” SS eng back xforce exhaust with varex muffler installed.
    So is getting a nitrous install worthwhile? I won’t be racing it but more just think having it would be kind of fun.
    Anyway, thoughts?

    It's a lot more combustion pressure and heat created, so your weak links are going to be if the stock pistons can handle it,
    ring end gaps of the stock pistons, if the cylinder head will lift and if the tuner is capable of tuning around the nitrous in terms of removing power to suit.

    There is a lot that goes into a system, most guys run a wet system which is fuel and nitrous usually you run a stand alone fuel system for the nitrous, purge solenoid, remote bottle opener, bottle heater, ignition retarder box just to name a few things.

    Looking for colder IAT’s? we’ve achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    Not sure why you'd want nitrous if you're not racing it. Pretty hefty fines if you're caught with a bottle hooked up on the street

    Why?? I can't undersatnd why you would want it with out using it on the track?
    its expensive for the short period of gain you get, and as stated above if your not using it for racing, well its seems a bit over the top for the run to the local super market to get the milk in.

    If you really want to run it, speak to your tuner. Refilling the bottles will long outweigh the cost of the install

    In WA this is the law...

    "Nitrous oxide injection systems must not be fitted. This prohibition includes a partial installation or a disconnectable nitrous oxide system that is fitted to the vehicle ready for use."

    So even if you're found with the lines and bottle not hooked up, you'll still cop the fine.
    I believe it slightly varies (or used to vary) state to state but most are pretty similar. I think some used to allow the system as long as it wasn't hooked up.

    Ok thanks for that. I’m not sure of the legality in NZ either to be honest
