Question Nitrous: Where can I buy a Wet System?

I think I want to purchase a wet system for my 325iA perhaps even a Zex system considering i've heard alot of good things about them.

Where is a place I can visit in toronto to get a Nitrous kit for my car? And how much do they usually cost?

I'm going to go with a wet system, mainly because they sound like their less harsh on the engine.

Can anybody give me any advice on what to look for, tips, responses from using it in your own cars?

thanks

Hey, djcontra.

If you want to know where in Toronto can buy nos system, you should talk to Dave at Motronix. I think he might be able to help you out on where to get nos. Usually they cost around $500- US. I am not sure about CDN price. Friend of mine want to get nos for his bimmer, too. He's hoping to find a good price in Toronto.

There are couple of nos companies out there. such as NOS, ZEX, Nitrous Express (NX) and Venom. Out of all these companies, I heard that Zex is the safest one, I asked alot of ppl about ZEX nos system and NX nos system. And I heard alot of good thing about the Zex nos system.

hey thanx!
i'll actually be up in the area of motronix tomorrow
so i'll go ask them where and how much
i think you're right though, alot of people say the Zex system is the safest, and that's what i want is safety first. The last thing i need is to blow up my engine, or blow up my car

You can go to any performance shop and pic up the a ZEX system which is probably the safest thing... You don't necessarily have to go "wet" (cost a lot more too!)... that's only safer for large applications (100+hp shots).. a dry system with a stock chip will be reliable and enough for you to give an M3 a good run. Nitrous Express is generally the cheaper system, then NOS, and lastely ZEX. They usually start around $700.00CDN and go up to $1300.00 (for the NOS with all the goodies - safety switches, bottle warmers, NOS controller, purge valve, guage) Try this place for a price quote...

I used to have an 80hp shot of NOS (single fogger/ dry manifold)in my car for almost 2 years and it honestly didn't damage the motor at all.... just remember that it gets addictive and the bottle refills cost $70.00 each time (full 10lb bottle lasts about 90sec - maybe 1 weekend)

Yo Randy.

you said a dry system with a stock chip will be reliable and enough for you to give an M3 a good run. So is that mean If I am going to get "shark injector" for my car.. then I should go for wet system?

To tell you the truth... I've never heard of a "shark injector". I"m assuming it's an additional injector to provide more fuel to the motor?.... Explain please.

Shark Injector is a "chip" solution for OBD-II cars. It's a thingy that plugs into the diagnostic port, downloades the current software, and uploades the performace one. Then with a press of the button, reverses the software back to the orignal.(if you want to go to the dealer for example)

Only works on one car per shark injector though

yeah.. It's just a name of that performance chips. It's a pretty good chip, I heard alot of good thing about it. My buddy M52_Alpina is using it in his E36 328is, too. And after we install the chip, we feel a big difference.

So do you think I can use this chip with the Zex nos system?

DAMMNN!!!

That thing is cool! I wonder if you can switch parameters "on the fly" so when you run NOS, you're able to switch over to stock programming momentarily?

A wet system is not the answer for using NOS with a performance chip... Wet systems get very complex and become hard to feed the right amount of fuel for the motor. Generally, if the shot is no more than 50HP, you'll be okay with a chip... anymore than that and you'll need to either run the stock chip, or even retard the timing.

You said generally if the shot is no more than 50HP, I'll be okay with a chip. So if I want optimum performance, the best way to go is to get a chip that can give me a 15hp gain. And then get a nos system with no more than 50hp shot. this way even i don't use nos in every race, I still have a performance chip in my car, right? what do you think I should do, Randy?
cuz I really want Nos.. and I really want a chip as well....

thanx,
