I never see anyone with it? Has nitrous use been phased out pretty much except for big block 1/4 mile racers? Maybe it was only popular when Fast & Furious movies were all about street racing and blowing welds on intakes?

Turbo setups have gotten cheaper. Not just the turbo, but the manifolds and supporting parts.

I have nitrous in the Genesis. But I was using it as an IC sprayer until I put in my bigger IC this spring. Then I'll get a new intake manifold since the 1st gen IM's are unequal lengths, causing cylinder 4 to lean out if you spray and then BOOM! So need to get a better IM before spraying.

Thought about it but I'm not spraying anything crazy. Just a small 40 shot jet as of now for the IC. To go direct port with that low of a shot once I get my new IM, wouldnt be worth it.

A bunch of the 3.8 guys spray. It's still one of the best and cheapest mods per HP you can do.

I still want to get a nitrous kit for my car but the fear of blowing up my engine even with proper fuel delivery keeps the idea out of sight for me.

It's better to save up and turbo your car. Nitrous is just wasted money.
