    Hi, has anybody thought about or tried nitrous, have heard a few horror stories about this but is cheaper than £7000 turbo upgrade. AB

    "caney" on the TT forum has been using NOS for a while now and quite successfully. I think RichA3Turbo said he was running 400bhp+ now!

    A fully installed kit will set you back about £1000. Cheaper than a turbo upgrade, however you have to refill your NOS tank - expensive if you're using it a lot!

    Definately much stronger rods, but sure if hes changed the pistons too... i doubt it. Could just be the rods as they are the weakest link

    That's strange, because when I PM'd him on the TT Forum, I asked if he had upgraded anything for the NOS kit and he replied:
