Nitrous, not NOS. NOS is a brand. Nitrous Oxide Systems. Others include ZEX.
Anyway, nitrous is far cheaper then a proper turbo setup though I think a turbo is worlds cooler.

TURBO. Nitrous is basically just a way to blow your engine to smithereens. PLUS with turbo, u get that dope blow-off noise and sweet looking stuff like an intercooler...I dunno, a turbo is more expensive but it makes u sound about a trillion times sweeter to say "I have an MX-6T" than "I have an MX6 Juiced"

definitely TURBO. With turbo.. you get that nice kick in the ass all the way through your RPM range... isnt it nice to go faster ALL the time, instead of only at WOT at the track? turbo is so much funner.. and yes, you do get that fun whoosh blow off sound... but personally, i like the performance better than just the sound =/. If you get creative, you can custom make a turbo setup.. instead of spending all the money on a 'kit'... everyone has a kit.. but noone would have your custom made.. heh.. hell, Turbo it, then juice it. but def turbo first... youll be WAY happier, i guarentee it.

A well set up nitrous system is no worse for the engine then a turbo set up.

ya ummm...

Sure it is
Even a well done Nitrous setup can damage your engine if the other parts of the car/engine don't support it to a certain HP. Also, it's a lot easier for an amateur to mess up a shot of nitrous then driving with a turbo.


Also, depending on how much you use it, a turbo is cheaper in the long run.

The same can be said for a turbo. If the engine can't take the strani of the added power it doesn't matter if it's nitrous, turbo, s/c, or anything else. You may be right about an amateur screwing up nitrous. An amateur can also screw up a turbo setup quite easily. (How many people come on here thinking turbo with no thoughts of added fueling? ) Either can be bad if done poorly. Either can be reasonably reliable if set up properly. As for lonf time savings maybe..... Really depends on how much you use the nitrous.

a turbo for our mx6 i priced it at about 2,900 for a complete kit with bov. intercooler,piping ..ect... Instalation is a different story.

Id go with a nitrous setup myself using it occansionaly not every single day wont ruin ur motor considerably. A 55-65 shot is recomended on a stock motor with no internal modifcations. Next summer i want to be running a whole shot which is a 100shot for those of you that dont know. Already aquired stronger rings,lifters,rods,axels (step 9 actully, about 500 per side) i need some more parts before i send my motor out. BTW the motor is sitting in storage and i drive my car everyday. How is that possible you ask hmmm guess i got 2 motors te other one hehehe all i have to say is i love Japan.

Rylinkus, I'm pretty sure he's talking about a KLZE...or maybe if hes totally insane and full of money...20B ROTARY??!! oooohhh
In his 4 cylinder? Does he swap motor mounts and trannys when eh puts that in? Or is he running the mythical FSZE that has only be swapped sucessfully a few times. (Like 2 or 3)

I have the zex kit
A: because I dont have 3,000.00 plus whatever else comes up during install
b: because I want the power sometimes not all the time
C: cost me 500.00 bucks for everything Heater purge zex kit pressure gauge A/f meter
If you dont install either right either way turbo or nos it will screw up your motor. I think nitrous is the best bang for your buck it's easy to remove for emissions or what other reason and you can put it on your next car without worrying if you have the right this and that.

i built myself my own custom turbo kit for the v6. its very time consuming, and it takes a lot of talent to get everything to work right. i had a very good welder who knew his stuff for making the pipes work well with each other. ive spent about $1500 or so to get my car running. i might see what i can do about making a kit for the mx6 v6 members...
