That doesnt mean its reliable as a non nitrous car. Meth is safe to run all day everyday. Spray nitrous all day everyday stop light to stop light apex to apex and then come see me.
Ugh, just stop.
Adding nitrous and adding a turbo are doing the same thing, adding more oxygen into the intake charge.
Nitrous has a bad reputation because people a.) install it wrong b.) don't tune it correctly c.) abuse it.
A straight comparison of nitrous vs. boost use isn't a direct comparison anyway. With nitrous, the extra combustible air is instantly available. It would be like your turbo being on a switch, where it either provided 20psi or nothing at all. If you were constantly running peak boost, including off idle, of course that would be terrible for your engine.
Safe nitrous use is just about using it intelligently, all there is to it.
