    Re: frequently asked n2o questions and answers

    I like to think each second of purge is about 50-75 cents.
    use it as it was intended, to clear the lines of warm gases and fill with icy cold go juice.

      Agreed, it's sole purpose is to put cold gas right at the solenoid. A lot of people like to just purge it to show off, hell I have actually seen guys hook up compressed air or CO2 to a line just to pose like they have spray.

      If you don't mind wasting money, purge away lol. I only hit it right before a run at the track, otherwise I don't cause it gives it away.

        the purge forces the "gas" out of the line. the line should be filled with liquid n2o when you are done purging.

        purge until you see a nice white cloud coming out, then thats all you need to do. you'll also be able to tell when your bottle is getting low by the cloud that cmes out

          I just purge the line once when I hook the bottle up, or before I got to sue the bottle the for the first time after getting it filled. All other times I just open the bottle ans don't purge. The crap that is left in the lines from the last time the system got used is still n2o, the pressure from the bottle will just compress the small amount in the line back into a liquid or very high pressure gas.

          When I do use the purge, its very quick, One or two pops of the button for less then a second.

                      is it the motor itself that cannot handle a dry shot? I have been looking into it and have seen a couple post about how its a no no but just curious if saturns just don't like it or not

                        The issue with dry systems is that as per the name, it doesn't add another fuel source. Which leads to a much higher possibility of a lean condition, and an ensuing KABOOM!

                        Wet, on the other hand. Sprays a Nitrous/Fuel mixture simultaneously.

                          so basically it is just safer correct. I am only planning on doing a 35 or 50 shot on stock internals.

                            Don't do it. If you can find a great deal on a dry kit, go for it. But spend the extra coin on converting to wet. That extra bit beats the shit out of windows in your block.

                              It really isn't a matter of your engine not being able to take the dry shot. It is a matter of your fuel system not being able to adjust for the added air and causing a lean condition that burns valves and pistons. Probably even melting pistons.
