Re: DRY KIT VS. WET KIT ???????

You needed a new thread for this?

You should just ask this question on the other thread you started "Nitrous!!!"

Dry kit is where it is injected in the airbox. Wet is injected in the cylinders. Dry kit is alot cheaper, and pretty much your only option with a stock motor.

No, it's not. A dry kit uses no fuel solenoids to inject additional fuel with the nitrous, you must get the engine enrichened some other way. (Injecting in the airbox "tricks" the ECU into doing it with the temp sensor) A wet kit injects fuel and nitrous, and therefore costs a bunch more as well as being a bit more involved to install.

Re: DRY KIT VS. WET KIT ???????

Dry kit doesn't inject in the cylinder right? And the wet does right?

Just cause I didn't go into detail doesn't mean what I said was wrong right?

A dry kit can inject into the cylinder, a wet kit can be injected in the airbox (though at the intake of the airbox would probably be a bad idea).

Dry means no fuel from the nitrous system, wet means you add fuel with dedicated fuel jets in the nitrous system. It's that simple.

DRY and WET are not just applied to nitrous on the 929, they also apply to other bikes, cars, pocket bikes etc etc.

Re: DRY KIT VS. WET KIT ???????

Your right LTL, I stand corrected.

DRY= Nitrous without fuel.
WET= Nitrous with fuel.

It can be used as an "active" intercooler for turbo'd or supercharged engines. It's original application was in WWII fighters (nice "OH ****" button eh?) which also had superchargers. They tried pure O2 but combustion temps get too high, N2O has nitrogen which doesn't burn, but cools everything down so it won't melt.

I got kinda insistent there because there are lots of misuderstandings about the spray out there, and we don't need to add to them here.

Would you still say that when my sponsor ate a Gixxer 1000 Turbo/NOS with his 1400 Busa on NOS? The Gixxer is normally faster than me, and I normally beat stock Busa's on the track....1/8th...but I watched him beat it in the 1/4. But I guess you could argue that it wasn't a Busa Turbo. On the other hand, the turbo is MORE $$$$$, harder/longer to install, and the Gixxer was having a hard time from jumping up/down, and handle, or be consistant. It (Gixxer) was being riden by Richard Gadson....PRO! Just my 2cents though.


Busa: 8.60's-8.70's 1/4 mile @ 165
Gix T: 9.00's-9.30's @ 150's I believe.

Re: DRY KIT VS. WET KIT ???????

I think the few of us on here that run NOS all use Dry systems. My buddy on his 54 runs a progressive Wet system.

Re: DRY KIT VS. WET KIT ???????

Dry system has less parts to worry about going bad.
A wet system is more efficaint, but more stuff could go bad, like fuel cyliniod going out or fuel pump goes out ,........................... motor goes out

Re: DRY KIT VS. WET KIT ???????

I'll just add another pitfall of the Wet system...

When the bottle goes dry, fuel continues to spray....drops the motor on it's nose in a big hurry due to the over rich condition....takes a few seconds to clear out...but you get a front row seat to your competition's bumper as it whizzes away from you....

Dry setups make perfect sense for bikes...but for cages though, I'm still a Wet fan....

a bottle should never be dry or close to it because your performance is gonna start falling off when the pressure gets too low .... you want it at around 900 psi
