As long as its properly run, yes you can. That being said, you will want to tune for it, it will decrease the longevity of your motor and you would be much better off getting alky injection and a tune.

Why not switching to water/meth injections? It can actually help the engine instead of putting more stress on the components like NOS.

My 2 cents

As it is I don't beat on it at all it's just to have. The car has never been to the track. I treat it like my 3 year old (pamperd) This is my first tuner car i was a ford guy all the way but had to have the STI 06. It's awsome.

Running a 50 shot of n2o would be similar to running 5 more pounds of boost. If you don't feel safe running 5 more pounds of boost, you probably shouldn't get n2o. On the note of water/alc, the more power that is created, the shorter an engine will generally last. Doesn't really matter if you add 30hp by upping the boost, running n2o, or whatever. Having that extra power will most likely hurt the longevity of the engine, even though one solution(to get more power) might not put quite as much stress/wear on the engine when tuned a given way as another solution. I would personally run water/alc(if I had to pick between that and n2o), but that's not cause it's any better for the engine then n2o(even though it might be). As always, this is just my opinion....

peace

I suggest running both haha, but seriously, you can and it works great, the alky is great for the daily driving and then when you go to the track you turn on the nitrous as well and you have yourself a beast, but there are some hidden costs you don't always see at first such as a clutch...
