Work Safely
Always, wear eye protection and gloves when working with lines or hoses that contain pressurised nitrous oxide or fuel. Never transport nitrous cylinders loose in a boot and especially NOT within a vehicle's interior whether the cylinder is full OR empty. Always disconnect the GROUND side of the battery when working on any electrical components.

Nitrous Oxide won't fix problems you already have:
Before you install your nitrous system, be sure your engine is in good mechanical condition. Intermittent wiring problems, etc., can lead to erratic system performance and possible engine damage. It is usually a good idea to do a quick service on your engine including plugs and leads to get the maximum benefit from the system.

Never . . . .

Defeat the operation of the safety relief disc in the nitrous cylinder's valve stem: It's required by law and is there for your safety.
Never drill, machine, weld, deform, scratch, drop, or modify a nitrous oxide tank in ANY way whatsoever!
Never overfill nitrous cylinders: That little bit extra will put you and others at risk of injury. When the cylinder warms up, the pressure can climb above the limit of the safety relief disc and you will lose all the nitrous you just paid for.

Avoid risk of detonation at all times
Be aware that HIGH percentage power increases of nitrous oxide injection can increase the risk of detonation and following manufacturers advice is vital for avoiding such a condition.

If, when your system is activated, something doesn't feel or sound right,
BACK OFF: If you hear any detonation or feel anything unusual, get off the throttle. It's a lot easier to check everything over than it is to drive through it and damage engine components.

Don't activate or have the system activated when you hit the rev limiter.
The rev limiter is a fuel and / or ignition cut-off (depending on your vehicle type). If you cut the fuel while you're injecting nitrous, you're instantly causing a very lean mixture. This momentary lean condition has the potential of causing engine damage. If you cut the ignition while injecting nitrous your allowing a build up of unburnt charge in the system which will ignite at the wrong time and in the wrong place and could result in component failure.
