Question nitrous

The local track is opening in a couple weeks, and I was thinking about installing a nitrous kit and testing it out on opening day. Problem is, I'm not so sure of what kit to purchase. I'd like to go with a wet system after hearing of possible problems that could happen with a dry system. I've looked at the Nitrous Oxide System website but they don't have a wet system for my car (2000 Impreza 2.5rs) but they do for the WRX. Would the WRX kit work on my car? Thats probably a stupid question, but I thought I'd ask anyway. If the WRX kit doesn't work then what are you guys using for wet nitrous systems and how have your experiences been with them. Any info would be greatly appreciated. (no pressure but I kinda need to know quickly. . . . . .track opens soon and I need time to order the kit and install)

jasona, how do you like your kit? Hard to install? Hard to use or get used to using?

I had a zex dry kit. Really easy to install (a bit of wor to make it look clean though),and its easy to get used to. You might need a new clutch, i never felt my 50 shot until i had a new clutch put in, it wuld slip all the time, never grabbed! Go with ACT.

PS: The switch for the kit is cool, but easy to spot by cops if you ever get stopped.

Get a bottle warmer 100% as well as pressure gauge, very nice things to have, otherwise you are pretty much blind to your bottle pressures when they fill it for you and the warmer gives you better sprays, even on low bottles.

freakin easy to install. if you know where the TPS wire and FPR are, you can do it in 20-30 minutes. sometimes ive done a quick install in a friends car so they could race something, in exchange for a full bottle after theyre done. using it is also easy. i put the switch down by the shifter, and when i leave the line, as soon as i'm completely off the clutch i flip it, usually right in time to grab the shifter and go to 2nd. its almost 2nd nature by now.

edit: yes, you will probably need a new clutch too. i bought a clutchnet one, i recommend not getting one of those. it holds the nitrous once its fully engaged, but if you try to give heavy throttle before its engaged (even without nitrous) it will slip like crazy. i havent been able to get better than a 2.3 60ft since i got it, since all i can really do is just roll off the line like i would from a stop sign then gun it after i'm off the clutch. i used to get 2.1-2.0 60ft's on the stock clutch.
