In that case, say he gets a Nitrous Kit for about $600. That plus careful installation, will come out to under a grand. Is it ready to use or is there something else?
Pretty sure thats it. Except the super dooper cool steering wheel buttons

Whats the Magnum head? Ive seen them for sale for the first gens on neontuners.com. Guy wanted like $135 for it, but not sure of the miles on it. He said 3000 I think. What does it do, and what parts does it contain?

BUT the air will be cleaner!! Who cares if we have to replace our engines every 1000 miles?!? WE MUST SAVE MOTHER NATURE!!!!!

Yes because he made a joke. Flaming starts. Intelligent comment.

I'd LOVE to see someone push a stock neon motor up to 330hp and see how long it lasts.

N20 doesnt add more fuel on its own, Altima. It adds oxygen. Additional fuel is just something the fuel system does once it detects the extra air.

And yet, 2 of the three types of nitrous systems add fuel with their nitrous solenoid.

Nitrous, by itself, is nitrogen and oxygen. No gas in there.
