Nitrous Question

I have a 94' Chevy S10 with a 4.3L V6. I am wanting to install a Nitrous system on it but I don't know that much about them. Which system is the best for my truck and how hard would they be to install?

hard to install, would need a tune, and will put SERIOUS wear on your motor...my advice is if the motor isnt built, dont do it! I had a Nitroux Extress kit on my car for a week and yea it was fun...but knowin that im killing my motor wasnt so I took it off...45 dry shot tuned. biggest waste of money

P.S. illegal for street use...

Umm...I'm no mechanic, but I doubt a dry shot would be that hard to install.

Anyhow, I agree with the rest of it. Assuming your motor is stock, I don't think it would hold up that well on nitrous, although maybe a 50shot wouldn't be TOO bad. S10s have a nice big engine bay and RWD. A great setup for a V8 swap.
