I don't know really anything about nitrous on a car, but I do know that with these cars, you'll need to reinforce the differential pin in the transmission. Hunt4steve did a complete rebuild of his, and did a very good write up on the procedure.

Others will need to chime in with more info on various things.

Start with: http://sixthsphere.com/showthread.ph...ns-and-answers
Then: http://sixthsphere.com/showthread.ph...can-she-handle

Pretty much browse the NOS section on Sixthsphere until your questions are answered.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

Was this really necessary? It's the first time I've seen that site. While I haven't sifted through it all yet, so far it seems to have a lot of useful information. The articles make good use of constructive criticism, and do not simply take jabs at people. Although, some proofreading is in order.

Nitrous can get expensive if something goes wrong. Be careful about playing with anything you can't afford to push off a cliff.

http://saturnpioneer.webs.com/sprayansseries.htm

I had never seen that site. It is pretty good. Claiming to be the Saturn god is probably bit far, but there is some solid info on the site.

Default Re: (nos kit) need to know what parts are needed!!

i just read some stuff on that site, i run nitrous on another car so i know it quite well. He says to use a dry kit for a 97...
Easiest way to add nitrous to a dohc up til 97 is to use a wet kit. they are available cheap. I personally only use NOS brand equipment. the nitrous line would go into one side of the fogger nozzle and fuel into the other (through a fuel solenoid and nitrous solenoid). Use the service port on the fuel rail to get the extra fuel. I cant remember what AN size it is off hand but it screws right on. First remove the schrader valve of course. A 100 shot of nitrous would require reducing timing on the motor by approx 4* when its activated. Otherwise you can have detonation and really damage the motor. MSD makes a distributor-less ignition system that works with our cars. i use to use it on my saturn years ago. forged pistons are absolutely necessary but definitely worth it if you plan on using it often.
