100 shot of nitrous on 08 GT. Good or bad?

I am thinking of adding some nitrous. I am wanting some extra HP from time to time. What are the pros (if any) or cons?

the 100 shot for the 3V is probably the most common. i also believe (from memory) that you won't need any real upgrades/supporting mods with it. about all you'll need is a tune, but that is pretty much just removing 2 degree's of timing for each 50 shot. so for 100 shot you're looking at your regular daily tune minus 4 degree's.

pro's: cheap, simple install, can use an email tune (i'd still want a dyno tune), isn't being used unless you want it.

con's: one night at the track w/a few runs and the bottle will be empty (from what i hear), isn't always there like a blower, illegal to have an open bottle driving around town (might be illegal to have it hooked up?).

a complete kit w/ ALL the accessories will be over a grand. that's of course if you buy new.

if you think you'll use it all the time (daily almost) then i think you'd be better off just getting a blower or turbo. you can get a blower or turbo for about 3k

supercharger or a turbo is a much better option plus you get to use it whenever you want.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know it wes illegal to have the bottle open around town. Not much point in having it if you can't have it ready whenever when you want it.
