Nos is cool but it is way too hard on your engine. Avoid it unless you have lots of money to blow on rebuilding your engine.

OK the best way to go is a TURBO kit.Because unlike the NOS the TURBO is always there it is a part of the motor and it is unlimited in what Horsepower it will create. Its better on stock engines with a low amount of boost added like 7-12 PSI. Turbo will never run out of power unlike having to refil a NOS Bottle over again every time your out taking on thoes challenging races.Turbo is emissions friendly and helps the engine to burn better fuel / air mixture.ATurbo Bolt on means that its made for your car and it can be installed in a short amount of time with just a few tools.

Repeated use of NOS on your stock engine will slowly eventually ruin it unless you upgraded all the internals. A turbo kit, though costly is the much better use of money for power. If it is a bolt-on system, it simply means that you can just bolt it on without having to do much work like having to remove things from your engine bay.

Turbo all the way. NOS is not permanent and has to be refilled. There are only a few bolt-on kits to go with the two that I would recommend are Greddy, and Turbonetics. They offer everything including the fuel management.

all of the people saying to go turbo b/c nos is hard on your engine are rediculous to say the least! First of all turbos can be just as hard if not harder! like the b16 tuner guy said a turbo is permanent, and if your engine isn't built for it you are going to constantly be puting stress on the engine. you can control when you use nitrous. a bolt on turbo is basically a turbo kit, it just sounds nice when people say bolt on it just means that you won't have to remove anything on the inside of your head or block.lastly I wouldn't suggest doing either without tuning or building your bottom end but if you do only use a 60 hp jet with the nitrous or 6-7 psi of boost with the turbo. Good luck
