    Nitrous does not mean it will be dead, though it certainly does increase the chance for damage. If the car was tuned to run with it, then it might be fine.

    Have them perform a compression test.

    There's been days when i seriously contemplate installing a second fuel pump, lines, and running a 25-50 wet shot. Then i think, "well i'm gonna have to retard the timing significantly, and run less boost, so maybe i wont actually gain that much." Im far from knowledgeable about tuning for NOS however. So maybe it could be done safely. On the stock turbo? Who knows...

    NOS is like crack. Great stimulus. But you get hooked and eventually leads to a downfall.
    Car has a great power adder. I'd drop the NOS.
    I work on vehicles that make 650hp and 2400ft/lbs.

    If it's the car in your avatar, FMIC ...

    Are you sure it's wired for nitrous instead of meth/alcohol?
