Questions on N2O

I'm looking into getting a nitrous system for my 2002 3.0 edge. By what I've read online it seems like I should go with a wet shot. But this is my first time doing anything of this nature so am I able to do it with a bone stock engine or what mods do I need. I'm not looking to be racing all the time I just wanna have a little fun every now and then.

What would be a good beginner shot and what mods would I have to do before installing it? Also what are some suggestions on doing this?

Th 3.0L engine is the anemic V6 of the two offered. If you want to use nitrous I would not use anything more then a 50 horse shot. You can also do something like a lift kit or something similar for a different kind of mod. You can throw a cam into your V6 but that will give a small power increase.And if you are up to a 5.0 swap,it is a solid choice for any ranger.

Nitrous is cocaine for motors! Haha but Like prerunner said are better options and maybee look into new gear ratio for the axle. I wouldn't put nitrous on it but it's up too you. If u did go with nitrous I would get a tuner to pull a couple degrees of timing out and run 93 octane when spraying also no more then a 50 shot.

Really I did not know that.
I know this thread is old but Nitrous can be run on just about any motor if care is taken.

If your gonna run NOS run a dry kit! A dry kit is simple and will only add 50 HP and is a lot safer than a wet kit. A dry kit sprays the NOS into the intake tube and mixes with the fuel as its sprayed into the combustion chamber, and a wet system will spray the NOS directly into the combustion chamber with the fuel. A dry kit wont do any real damage as long as your not spraying at every red light. I had a 93 Ford Escort and ran a dry NOS kit (I still don't know why!!) and never had any issues from it!

Your truck is still gonna be shitty at racing ten with N2O. Just get body lift and 33s, much more noticeable. Nobody can see your N2O under the hood nor will they be able to tell your truck is fast because face it..Rangers are pickups not mustangs.

I know it's been 3 weeks but i gotta say........
Thats what i love about this thread....Lots of advice from people that don't have a clue.

I really love the guy that tried to tell us the difference between wet and dry kits.

The injectors are already at about max pulse rate for the stock 3.0L at WOT.
So you really want to run a wet kit and inject it right in front of the throttle body.

You can blow your motor sky high with a wet or dry shot. A tune is a must have if it is a auto tranny.
Otherwise you will be in the rev limit before the trans. will shift. Then it goes boom.

Our trucks are tuned for 87 octane from the factory. So if you have a stick you can get by with a set of NGK TR6 plugs and 93 octane on a 50 shot.
I know from doing it not BS.
But if you get on the rev limit it will be all over quick.

I would suggest a tuner to raise rev limit a couple hundred RPM's and a N2O controller to cut off the nitrous before you hit the rev limit.
And a wet kit.

My nitrous tune and DD tune are very close. It is the fuel octane that changes.
170,000+ Miles on my 3.0 and have had nitrous on since about 30,000 miles.
I have turned many smiles upside down with my lil' 3.0 and it still runs perfect and don't burn or leak a drop of oil.
So if you have NOT done it PLEASE don't give bad advice.
