NOS on tundra help! Please!

I am going to be purchasing a NOS kit fairly soon for my tundra. My only doubt is, can a pretty much stock engine (only a couple bolt ons) handle a 100 shot of NOS without damaging the enigine? I know there are no tuners for our trucks so would my engine also be able to handle NOS without a tune as well? Answers would be much appreciated, thanks in advance! Sorry if this thread is somewhere else in these forums too, I searched an searched and couldn't find much about NOS and a stock engine.

Lmao, is that honestly gonna happen? I've read some threads on here that people use NOS on their 5.7 tundras without hardly a problem. I'm not trying to do 200 shots and up, that's just crazy. Mainly 50-100 shot is what I'm looking for. I just want to make my truck faster. I'd buy a supercharger but they don't have one for 4.6. I'd buy that turbo kit that Chris (Spoolin07Tundra) makes but he won't reply to me about fabricating a kit for the 4.6l. So my only other option is NOS.. I figured 100 shot and below should be fine for the engine but am I wrong?

Lol yes, it added some enlightenment to the thread. I just wish their was more of a market for the 4.6l tundra so i wouldnt have to buy NOS, id rather buy a turbo kit honestly. Actually I wish there was more of a market for all tundras.

NX proton plus wet setup with a window switch. Get with Chris, he is a busy person but has ran a healthy wet shot without any problems.

Okay thank you very much. I have been trying to get ahold of him for a turbo kit but he won't reply back. And when you say "window switch" does that mean a on/off switch for the whole NOS system or does that mean you have to hold that switch down for the NOS to spray? I hear WOT sprays are better and safer but then again that's just what I've heard. Please any input would be awesome.

^^^ the Window switch should only run at WOT. The window switch will turn the NOS on and off dependent of RPM you choose.

I'm still a little confused. Does th window switch spray the NOS or does it just turn it on and then WOT sprays? Or do I have to hold the switch down for it to spray NOS while at WOT? That's my confusion.

The window switch turns on at WOT. From there the window switch will spray NOS at the desired RPMs. Lots of people don't like spraying at low RPMS and at Higher RPMs just before shifting. So lets say you can have it to spray NOS between 3000- 5000 RPM. Sorry for making it confusing.

BTW, if you can buy a supercharger kit why not just trade in your truck for a 5.7 and start with that.

I use to have a heavily modded Mitsubishi Eclipse AWD turbo (aka, DSM) and from experience, being the first to stick something like NOS on your motor is gonna lead to a very expensive lesson. Make sure to have another car too because when that motor blows up, and it will, it will take a long time to fix. Even if you have money pouring out of your wallet, it'll take at least a week to fix the motor. If you don't have bribe money to get your mechanic off another job and to start working on your car right away and if you don't have bribe money to get the machine shop to work on your motor right away it can literally take months to get your truck back on the road.

On average it use to take a month for a machine shop to work on my engine parts. Why? Because the ones that do a good job and have the proper tools to do a good job are usually very busy.

I'm not going to be spraying NOS 24/7 though. I thought our engines could handle 100 shots with no problem. I wish I could have gotten the 5.7 but it wasn't up to me. Still in high school bro. Now that I have a job I can start paying for goodies like NOS but at the time of buying a vehicle, I had hardly any say so. Is NOS really gonna hurt my engine that much even if I'm not spraying all the time?

I don't know how tough the 4.6 is but even if you shoot a small amount of nitrous into the motor once things can still go wrong and boom! IE., the nitrous controller has a glitch and turns on the nitrous at the wrong time. Or your spark plug was handled badly and comes apart and takes out your valves, etc....

BTW, I got my DSM back in HS too and I had the same mentality as you. I learned the hard way how to mod my DSM to spank just about everything that lined up against it. I learned one expensive mistake after another. And that probably lasted around ten years. Actually, I had the DSM for over 20 years and toward the end I started to be a little bit more cautious about how I modded the car taking the approach that if I spent more money I'd have a more reliable car. And even though I was careful and researched things thoroughly things still went wrong once in a while.
