Nitrous on a 2003 corolla question

I was thinking of putting a nitrous system on my 03 corolla. Is this a good idea? What size system would you if you would. Any pointers?

no no no no no... (only my opinion(i hate nitrous)) why nitrous? youre only going to ruin it unless youre going to build the crap out of it... the newer corolla motors arent exactly the strongest.

Donít know much about nitrous,
I think it would be hard on your engine.

Just wondering do you need it or want it?
Are you actually getting your engine to bottom out?

Maybe all you need is a turbo.

have you dont exhaust and intake yet? they woont do a hwole lot, but something is better than nothing. a supercharger would be pretty nice (im planning on supercharging my car) or you could turbo it. but i myself am more of a supercharge guy, cuz i want my power now! haha

I herd with a turbocharger you have to use a higher octane fuel
Cus of early ignition do to high compression of the air and gas.

If thatís even true
I guess it would be the same case with superchargers.

high octane in the sense 91-93, available at most gas stations.

but back to the main point, do a motor swap or something. try for an older mr2 motor, or maybe a celica gt-s motor if possible, heck even the jz supra motor
but even then, modding a corolla is a bad idea imo. just take a look at the civics and the kind of respect they get...

but if you must choose f/i, get the turbo.

I have one deck of playing cards left and a few clothes pins available...I'm sure you might be interested in putting one on the wheel of your Corolla too...they make your car sound killer and up the HP too.
