A little nitrous backfire this afternoon

Cruising at 70 mph and decided to hit the Nitrous.Forgot to turn the arming switch on.Guess it dumped some extra fuel or something,Because all of the sudden "BOOM" .White smoke from the shaker and right back at me. All it did (luckily) was blow the tube from the elbow on the CAI and expand the cone filter a little bit.Still ran fine, idled a little rough until i got home.Won't do that again. Bet it looked cool coming from the shaker though

It did startle me, but it kept running smooth.I had the windows down so the smoke actually came in the car!
