Check out prices with Zex, Holley, Nitrous Express
The correct answer is contained right in it's name. Nitrous oxide is rich in... wait for it... OXYGEN. By introducing additional oxygen to the engine it allows you to burn more fuel resulting in more power. The cooling effect (if any) is just a side benefit. We run our nitrous bottles at about 450-500 degrees Fahrenheit or about 1200 psi (kids, don't try this at home, it WILL explode) so there is little cooling effect.

ok you have obviously figured this out already but I dont know anything about this stuff. How do you refill your nitrous? How many times can you use it before it runs out? What else will I have to install in my car so that it can handle the nitrous?

Depends, the internals have to be strong enough to withstand it, you can use it a couple times before it runs out depending on HOW you use it

So than why not just get turbo and not have to refill it? I dont know anybody with nitrous thats why im surprised its the best thing to get. Most of my friends have turbochargers.

absolutely nothing. I dont know enough to help anybody yet. Im trying to learn as much as I can and eventually I will be able to help people. Everybody was a newb at some point. I dont see why you have such a hard time understanding that.

And that's four bottles and eight soleniods feeding twin plates. Either it works or goes bang. Bang is cool, but expensive.

What else can I add for a reasonable price to make the car better? It has new headers. I was looking into a new intake but again, I am not sure what kind to get. Here is the car.

Headers on that engine won't be a big gain, nor will playing with air intake pipes. By now you will have figured out that the concensus is electric hairdryers will do zip.

You need to define a "reasonable price" and also ask yourself why you are wanting to up the power. Might be cheaper to get your thrills by purchasing a little 3 pot Suzuki with a turbo as a second car and hack around the track.

Love the pics! I had a 2000 prelude and I loved it, only problem was it was an automatic. Anyway.. if the electric turbo is what I think it is (i'm new here also), it's not even worth the money. I would just get a turbo system or nitrous. Do you have a CAI or anything yet? Basic mods aren't too expensive and they help some. Well, I think the car looks great, good luck and keep up the good work!
