Richen the fuel delivery for one, not to mention ensure the internals are in good condition, clearances are suitable for NOS, i.e. ring gap clearances, etc., depending on how big a shot you're using.

I'm a boost guy, not into NOS, but do a search here and Google it.

I ran plenty of N2O, its a blast and addictive. It will depend on the motor and how much you want to push it. Anything over 100-150 shot in a decent built V8 should have forged pistons. You will need good ignition, will need to super tune the engine before running N2O, gradually add N2O and constantly read plugs and be ready to change them often. May need to run cooler plugs, file fit or gapless rings and consider a timing retard device for when its activated.

I have now moved to forced induction - like it much better. No more filling bottles and power is always there.

You can go to summit, check out the Nitrous kits, some of them will have pdf instructions. Its a good place to start.

Nitrous is the hardest on engines power adder.

Nothing below 2,500 to 3,000 RPM

Retard box for anything beyond 100/150 shot for the top end.Maybe even a knock sensor.Detonation in nitrous is a engine killer.

Atleast ARP rod bolts,but better yet aftermarket forged rods/pistons beyond 100/150 shot.

Secondary fuel source.If beyond 150 shot 114 race gas is recommended.1/2 line with separate fuel pump/reg/filter.

Activate switch and kill switch.I like the momentarily switch under the gas peddle along with a activate switch so you don't turn it on by accident.Gives you the choice to run without it or not.

Excellent exhaust system well tuned.Senseless you putting in and then can't get it out.

Accessories-bottle heaters,twin bottles,adjust-ability with pills etc.

Fire extinguisher.Most important!!.

To add to what I put on, 1Gary is right, there are lots of accessories that can be purchased. Not all are needed, but if you want it to work right and not kill something, they are needed. Heaters, blow off valves, multiple tanks, pressure guages, purge valves, sometimes extra pumps, switches, race gas (or you could try water/meth injection instead). You want to make sure you are under power when it hits. N2O is non flamable, but it sure can make power when used right, and also kill things when not used right.
