    I've got a 96 GT with your basic mods and it runs perfect. The only thing is that it's got 92k on the clock and I'm worried what Nitrous will do to it? Should I leave it or can Nitrous be a safe alternative for my car? I know good tuning makes things better, but I just want to make sure I won't encounter any problems if used properly...

    a properly tuned setup shouldn't yield any problems, i been on the bottle for almost 4yrs now and no problems here.

    Got 109,000 on my cobra and as soon as I get the cash the 75-100 shot is going on.

    Alright I'm going to start looking into some kits. Don't I need bigger injectors and stuff like that though too?

    make sure it's tuned correctly.
    Detonation will break the cast pistons / rods quick. not to scare you, just a fact.
    The newer kits have more safeguards to keep it all mixed and timed correctly.
    gotta love the mega torque it gives you.

    Looks like the ZEX Dry Kit is a winner for me. I'll let everyone know how it goes!
