I search but doesn't really answer what I am looking for. Can a small dry nos kit just tap right into the take before the throttle body? Insted of drilling into the inatke mani? Or is it just for wet nos that you have to drill into it? An dry you can hook up to the intake path?

to my knowledge your not supposed to drill in the mani or t/b but only the intake tube 2" from the t/b

really the only one that involves tapping the intake manifold is a direct port kit... everything else is just pretty straight forward, fogger in the intake.. but id stay away from any dry kits..

i hear ya, i'm going the same route but i'm gonna do the zex wet kit #82021 to be exact, i'm sure that oc_civic is a perfect example that if you do it right then your not gonna have any probs

thats bad imo...

to make a good pass on nitrous preasure is teh key.. low bottle preasure generally equates to too much fueling and not enough spray.. generally causing you to run rich.. as the bottles become less fill they lose preasure.. my 10lb bottle is heated to increase preasure even more.. also.. the zex kit has and will always be kind of shaky to me. i dont like "mystery boxes" that control s**t.. you should post pics of it when you get it because as far as i know zex does not make a kit with 3 small bottles..
