I've always wanted a small nitrous shot on my (summer only) daily driver. The cars got great pistons and a cam that's suited for it, but I wonder how often I could use it without fukking my car up

Any power adder will take its toll on an engine. You just need to make sure that you tune the car correctly for No2 use.

I Fully expect to replace an engine when it reaches 100,000 to 110,000 miles no matter what.

I rebuilt when compression starts to go and when the rings start to see blow-by. Unless you have forged internals, parts start to deteriate. 100,000 miles or so for me is enough.

Plenty of 5.0's just on this board that have way over 100k. Mine has 119 and has no blowby or lost compression. But if thats what you do then ok.

In the summertime I use N20 at least once a week. Even if I'm not racing I'll use it for my own amusement. My stock motor just turned 200K, I've been spraying since about 150K. This car is my only means of transportation and I expect it to last a quarter of a million miles. As long as your motor is tuned for it you should be fine. Even my T-5 was holding up untill a few thousand miles ago.

nitrous usually causes damage because of user error..

I have dozens of NX customers that have had no problem..
and 1 that has. The admitted the problem was his fault...
