yeah, the wet zex kit is roughly $600. purge kit is another 100, bottle heater is another 200, window switch can range from $50-150. So that's roughly a grand there. didn't even mention any of the other safety equipment, gauges if you want them, remote bottle opener, etc. but in the grand scheme of things, it's still much cheaper than turbo/SC, and you can go just as fast, or faster with just the change of the jets. which takes all of 5 minutes. granted, if you change the jet sizes, you should dyno tune the car, to make sure you aren't running rich or lean, but with gauges, you could probably get away with not needing a dyno tune, unless you need to retard the timing.

unless you inherited this car and have alot of money and time to waste or youre just bored, idk who would spray a fwd rsx...just doesnt make sense. 300+ hp and all you will do is spin while an eagle talon or evo or sti is bus lengths ahead.

do you see greddy, HKS, Spoon, Jun Racing, Js Racing, Jackson Racing, COmptech or the other plethora of Japanese/ American performance auto builders making nitrous kits??

even on the drag strip, where i guess you want to be, fwd cars are turboed all day. yes some do supplement with nitrous or meth injection, but turbo is where you make the smooth power that you can crank up and have better control of.
Uhhhh Hondata sells a traction control system for RSXs yaa knowww

Definitely going all in for nitrous. I was gonna buy a turbo kit but didn't wanna blow 3-6 k keeping up with it including maintaince. I've seen Bflakers vids on YouTube and honestly that's wht gave me modivation. I have Kpro already along with k&n intake. I'm planning on getting a RH and exhaust. Also have a rbc manifold. Sooo in the market for a nitrous kit. I wanna spend around 2k for everything including bolt ons

Zex

To clearify everything until now you can run 50 (or lower) through 75 wet shot without a tune. that said like what everyone said "wet" is safer however if you're looking into the means of better controlling your nitrous then "dry" kit is the way to go. Reason being is because you are running the dry kit to KPRO so it can activate, add fuel, deactive upon set RPM redline, etc. I don't have KPRO BUT I do have KTUNER.

KTUNER doesn't offer the feats of KPRO oin nitrous but you can still tune your car (KTUNER is for 05-06 RSX-S but now available to other models even 02-04 RSX-S. You'll need the jumper harnest though vise versa to KPRO going to 05-06 RSX-S).

I'm currently running the same ZEX wet kit that I had in my EJ1 & AP1. I was on a 55 shot but now I'm on a 75-80 shot. Reason I said 75-80 is that to run 75 shot you must have a 41nitrous pill and 23fuel pill (on NOS fogger) while I'm on 42nitrous and 24fuel. If someone can tell me what shot that is that'll be awesome. My hunch is it's an 80 shot.

Look out for your A/F colder spark plug before you slap on the bottle, and PSI for both fuel rail and bottle. A gauge for both is your friend. All and all my K20Z1 is taking the laughing gas well on the slightly more 75 shot pill (80shot until someone corrects me), I'm going to datalog it sometime today and see where I stand with the rest of my nitrous peeps. I'm getting a tune on 100 shot hopefully before my B-DAY:vtec:

I had actually considered going Nitrous on my setup... Car makes great Power already NA but there is just no more power to be made from the engine without boosting it, or honing out the cylinders, anyone ever run nitrous on a high hp E85 setup with high compression and seen what a car has made before?
