Okay, heres a question I hear all the time but Im just cerious.. I dont want to put NOS in my BMW cause I love it too much.. but whats the diffrence between force induction and NOS? they both create more O2 burning in the combustion chamber.. which is safer? the NOS I hear leaves carbon deposits but I've never seen it. Some claim that N2O is much safer then Turbo... what do you guys think?

go turbo, but not over 12 lbs...should be fine.

and a smaller turbo will spool fast, and give you light to light speed...

nos is cheaper, and also more dangerouse.(i dont know anyone running it on a bmw and glad your not planning (although part of me wants to know someone who has/is))..

turbo runs off the exhaust and forces more (hot) air into the throttle...with an intercooler it helps the engine breath bigger breathes and gives out more power..

nos is a liquid and goes into the fuel..

am i guessing correctly?...

Just curious what you're basing the "Nitrous is more dangerous" claim off of.

If you set the motor up properly for it, there shouldn't be any problems. Surely you've seen someone blow up a turbo motor before....also, if it was so dangerous/bad & blew up motors on contact, do you think people would still buy it??
