Default Nitrous Kit for '99-'04 Mustangs

Which is the best?

Called American Muscle, and they have none for V6's + the guy said it's an awful idea as even a 75 shot on a stock motor will destroy it.

Should I even waste my time getting nitrous for the V6? I'm on a budget. Supercharger is NOT an option right now.

MCR,

First, sorry that our rep didn't give you great information over the phone. If you remember who you spoke to, give me a shout via PM and let me know. I want to make sure everyone is up to speed.

Nitrous can be a very safe power adder if all of the right things are taken into consideration. I'm currently in the process of doing a 100-shot of Nitrous on my 2011 GT and it's about making sure you get everything you need and tuned properly. Nitrous gets a bad name from people bolting the kit on and thinking that's it.

We have a few good reads on our website about nitrous:

Differences Between Wet and Dry Nitrous on a Mustang

Nitrous Oxide & Your Mustang - A Tech Guide

A 50-75 shot on your V6 will be perfect. I probably wouldn't go much higher than that for now, but you'll still get a huge gain out of it! You'll want to get a wet system for the necessary added fuel demands (I'm personally not a fan of dry systems) and make sure that your tuner is pulling 2-3 degrees of timing for a 50-75 shot where the nitrous is engaged. Which brings me to my next point... You'll also want to purchase a window switch, so that the nitrous only sprays during a certain RPM-range and not just every time you go wide-open-throttle.

If you do this and you make sure to stick to a good brand name kit (Zex and Nitrous Express are my personal recommendations).

We don't currently carry a kit for the 99-04 V6's, but you should be able to get a universal system for Ford EFI that does the job. I have seen a few people buy a GT kit and modify it to work, but that's completely at your discretion. A shop should be able to make it happen with a few components.

Hopefully this helps! Let me know if you have absolutely any other questions at all. Good luck and make sure to post back if you end up getting Nitrous installed!

Dan
