Contact NGK or even contact Scott @ CobaltPerformanceParts.com, he can help you with this department.

But yes, 55 wet shot is fine.

Becareful spraying off the line...with your intake manifold, fuel loves to puddle. Fuel puddling + High Temperature manifold = Bang. Not necessarily engine damage but you could damage your intake manifold and other exterior parts...technicially, it's minor stuff.

But you have to spray at wide open throttle, so no matter what gear you go through (assuming track style) you should always be above 3000 RPMs.

I would get an MSD BTM for use with the nitrous, or a window switch set to WOT. You want to make sure the tiing is right, its just as important as the correct fuel mixture.

isnt that for boosting? im just going to wire up these 2 switches i have, one for arm, one for engage, im going to wire up the relay to the engage switch where the WOT normally goes. i have an electronic throttle body and i dont feel like spending 250 bucks on a tps switch just to spray it a few times. i think im gonna go with the srt-4 spark plugs tho, i keep hearing people using them in 2.2's for spray. have you tried those?

You could use those plugs if you wanted to.

I would not use nos on a ecotec engine. However the ecotec is the bastard child of the 2.0l Saab 16 valve engine which has proved itself to be very durable even in poor conditions, but the gaskets and pistons and such are of a different alloy, not a better alloy but a little more dense. Saab freaks have made a system of injecting water into the combustion chamber to reduce intake temperature. "Think Fuel Injector with a old school electric fuel pump". Now think about alternative fuels, Gas+Nos, Diesel+Propane. Now think about Corn Fuel- that's some bad stuff, but if regulated it's wonderful. Now think about ethanol, did you know that ethanol holds nearly the same amount of Oxygen as Nos? Where do you get ethanol if your name is not Ether! Go to a Mopar Parts house and Get their Quart size windshield washer fluid, oh I know you think I'm a dumb ass, well go buy some and take a smell. Because of it's incredible evaporating quality Mopar brand Washer Fluid is great for an additive fuel, poor some on your hand and blow air on it with a air hose, you will notice your hand is about to freeze. Now In a very safe way try to burn a little "again in a very safe way" you will see that It burns very blue and clean. Some performance Saab sited sell such a kit that would be very easy to convert , but when you see that their kit would be just as easy to build yourself for much less.

and what does this have to do with nitrous . washer fluid has methanol and its not the same as nitrous an in no way compares to nitrous

and injection of METHANOL has been around for a while and it works good in forced induction applications to cool the iat temps
