The N52 is mostly made from magnesium and aluminum. I don't think it could handle such a beating.

I have no experience with nitrous and N52 engines, but I wouldn't run a 75 shot dry kit...it just seems a little too lean and dangerous without introducing fuel into the equation.

Craven, do you know what kind of setup Mjb88 is running?

looking at my dyno runs, I noticed the n52 runs a bit on the lean side until about 5500 rpm during WOT. So I would be a bit concerned about running a dry shot. If it's too much to plumb in a fuel jet, you should get a bmx power box, which adds fuel across the entire rev range. Then a dry shot would be much safer.

NOS Sniper Kit.

Pretty bottom end kit but works very well, and yes my motor is still intact and running well!

I recommend it, its a fun project. It can be a little dangerous but so is any mod. I have a wet kit and havent exceded a 75 shot. If you have any questions i would be happy to help

No, i'm not sure where you got that? I installed it about 2 years or so ago and have used it through the summers since.

Currently the WOT switch, but i'm gonna add in a momentary engagement switch for a little more control.
