There are quite a few people with nitrous on their cars. Not with Cobb stage 2 though...bad choice of EM IMO.

To answer your question, yes there are many people that run nitrous on their cars, one of the best tuners in the nation (Clark Turner) used N20 for a very long time, on a stock block EJ205 that he took into the 11's. However for this application, you should look into getting your car custom tuned, as most base maps advance timing, which can result in very bad things happening to your motor...

ya you need to be very careful with nitrous its very unpredictable and if you dont know what youre doing bad things will happen the four things you need to remember when tunning a nitrous system are 1. bottle pres. 2. fuel pres. 3. spark plugs and 4. timing extra fuel is required bottle pres. is consistant withhow well it will perform plugs need to be replace 1 range colder for every 50 hp and timing needs to be retarded 1 1/2 to 2 degrees for every 100 hp made

So your Stage II is on order and you already want nitrous? Why did you order the EM then?

Install your parts and learn to drive the car first.

Best bet for nitrous, talk to a tuner who is also an authorized seller of a nitrous system, they will have more experience with it than those who oppose it.

Their are many things to consider with a nitrous car, and they will offer a better idea of what to expect.

Cobb AP runs lean w/o nos so say goodby to your motor. Sell the AP and buy a utec if you wanna run nos. My buddy runs a vf22 w/ 60 shot (JDM2.0 block) and it runs fine.

you are totally asking for trouble with a dry shot....say 'goodbye' to your pistons. IMO 'wet' if you have to do it. it is safer than a dry shot.

I would surely rather expose myself to electric shock rather than place NOS on my car
