good luck with that...i haven't seen any cheap turbo manifolds for the d17...i bet you can probably do a home made set up for less than a 1000 though...

$500 bucks is in the range for bottle feeding your d17 not so much a turbo. If your on a budget, that's the best way to go!

Not necessarily....cause if ur on a budget and start spraying then what are you gonna do when u fry ur piston rings or ur engine starts knocking cause nothing was done to it to handle the spray.

Not if your gonna spray a low shot! I'm not talking 75-100 shot! If your that stupid to spray to the point of frying piston rings and knocking the engine, then your better of inhailing your n2o than injecting it 2 your manifold!

Everyone thinks N20 is so dangerous... Like 90% of the kits that are out on the market for imports are designed to run a 25-75 HP shot on stock engines and fuel systems with no timing retards or any type of engine management... just bolt in and go.

I know for a fact that the nitrous express stage one EFI wet kit is just like this from my own personal experience and they even state it on their website.

The only time I've even seen nitrous blow up a motor was after I installed a wet kit in a guy's Integra and he decided to spray a 75 shot for about 6 miles of driving on the highway. The recommended spray time with practically any nitrous system is 20 seconds at the most.

Yeah he basically blew the crap out of his motor but it was because of misuse of the system not having the nitrous itself...

Your dentist uses N20..that's what..20 nitrogen molicules! I know what nitrous oxide is, my mother is a dentist. As you quoted me I said your better off inhailing your nitrous, for a real good buzz, rather that run a 100 shot on stock internals. The person who started this thread wanted a turbo for $500. That's not gonna happen. So I merely suggested to run nitrous @ a low volume to gain some xtra Hp. That's all!

n2o used for engines is totally different than the n2o used for laughing gas. FYI.

N2O for cars and industrial purposes is like 99% N2O and 1% sulfur to keep people from huffing it.

Medical grade N2O is pure N2O since it was made to be inhaled...

Medical and Industrial grade aren't "totally" different but there are differences.

i was going to turbo my 04 but I just ended up spraying it because turbos are too much for a 04 and the fuel system is AWFULL. Returnless fuel systems suck because you cant raise the fuel pressure. If you want a good set up you have to make wat cardnoff (spelling?) did on 7thgencivic.com. He did a y8 intake manifold with a a fuel fuel return system so he could play with the fuel pressure.
I had a 75 shot for awhile and really loved and my car still runs fine after abotu 20 bottles run threw the motor.
