Work Safely with Nitrous

Always wear eye protection and gloves

W when working with lines or hoses that contain pressurized nitrous oxide or fuel. Never transport nitrous cylinders loose in a boot or the back of a van / lorry and especially NOT within a vehicle's interior whether the cylinder is full OR empty.
Always disconnect the GROUND side of the battery when working on any electrical components.

When testing and activating the system

Never should this be done on a public road or motorway, Nitrous kits should Be used and tested off road, on a track or private land ONLY, using it in public will put the health and lives of you and other at risk.

After using your nitrous system

You should always make sure that the valve on the nitrous cylinder is turned off and they activationswitch inside the car is turned deactivated.

Nitrous Oxide won't fix problems

Before you install your nitrous system, be sure your engine is in good mechanical condition. Intermittent wiring problems, etc., can lead to erratic system performance and possible engine damage.

Never drill, machine, weld, deform, scratch, drop, or modify a nitrous oxide tank in ANY way whatsoever!

Never overfill nitrous cylinders

That little bit extra will put you and others at risk of injury. More often than not, when the cylinder warms up, the pressure goes above the limit of the safety relief disc and you lose all the nitrous you just paid for.

All the power comes from the fuel, not the nitrous

Nitrous oxide is simply a tool that allows you to adjust how much and how quickly the engine burns the fuel. If the fuel isn't there, the power won't be either.

Avoid detonation at all times

Nitrous enhanced detonation is much more damaging than detonation that occurs when naturally- aspirated due to the increased amount of fuel available for releasing energy and the fact that more oxygen is present.

If, when your system is activated, something doesn't feel or sound right,

BACK OFF: If you hear any detonation or feel anything unusual, get off the throttle. It's a lot easier to check everything over than it is to just try to drive through it and damage expensive parts.

Don't activate or have the system activated when you hit the stock rev limiter.

The stock rev limiter is a fuel cut-off. If you cut fuel while you're injecting nitrous, you're instantly very lean. This momentary lean condition has the potential of causing engine damage.
