One of them (I assume 'wet') injects the nitrous into the fuel mixture, while the other doesn't. I don't pretend to know, so someone feel free to correct me.

That's what I understand the difference to be - a wet system injects fuel and nitrous, while a dry system is nitrous only. I have no idea which is better, or how much of a difference performance wise there is - not something I have looked into.

A wet shot of NOS is more harmful to your engine then a dry shot. A dry shot would be something like a shot of NOS into the intercooler. Dry shot is "safer" then wet shot.

this link will explain it in more detail of the 3 types of NOS.

Whoa there CUO4, maybe you should keep reading about nitrous before you make any other assumptions. For some reason or another, a wet shot is safer for your engine (less of a chance of leaning it out possibly??). Dry shots are used, although I don't know why, cheaper perhaps ( I didn't verify that statement). The previous two are completely different from the third use of nitrous. The type of NOS for the intercooler that you are talking about is not sprayed INTO the intercooler but rather ONTO the intercooler ( to cool down the charge of air that is circulating, much like the STi uses a water sprayer).

Not only are you wrong, but the link you provided proves it too. Generally, wet shots are better. Also, a dry shot is NOT spraying onto an intercooler. A dry shot just doesn't mix into the "wet" fuel.

Wet is the safest.

There are dry shot, wet shot and direct port (which is considered a wet shot).

Dry shot only injects nitrous into the intake. This is a good setup for NA cars.

Boosted cars should run wet kits.

A wet shot injects nitrous and fuel into 1 nozzle which is sprayed into the intake.

A direct port injection is also another version of a wet kit. Same setup as a wet kit but you run individual nozzles for each intake runner where each nozzle still sprays nitrous and fuel.

Then you can go into the dual stage setups....

That is what a fuel pressure safety switch is for. It comes with all nitrous kits (well, it at least came with the NOS kits). As soon as there is fuel pressure drops, it cuts off the nitrous.

Not sure why there would be fuel cut if it is properly tuned. Plus boost should be turned down when running with nitrous.
