    It really isn't.

    You use it when you are racing to give you the edge or just want to have some extra fun.

    When the system is off you maintain a reliable lower boost level for DD application fun. You can have a 350 HP truck and a 450 HP truck at the flip of a switch.

    Once the "new fun factor" wears off you will find yourself not really going through a ton of it that quickly.

    Man he just loves that N2O. That stuff scares me. It seems tricky. And if you don't get it just right kaboom!

    For a damn good reason, it rapes!

    Same can be said about boost :-D, doesn't take much detonation or stupidity in your setup and boom.

    Comes down to not being an idiot for the most part and think things through.

    Small quantity nitrous systems are of the least risk to novice users.

    Well you did make the poll between an STS Turbo kit versus a TRD s/c.

    Apparently enough members know the proper choice there. The few that did vote for the turbo, probably did so for turbo in general snd not necessarily the STS one.

    I've known a few people to run the STS and they ended up with oil problems for the turbo. Besides how can you pass up the sound of that blower whine.
