This is incorrect. I ran a 4bbl carb on my 66 stang with no problems, and this was back when you had to smog 66 and above. No, the car did not come with the 4bbl. Anyways. In cali you can have the nitrous, just not have it hooked up. Its legal for 'off road use only'.zac83 said:are you crazy, everything is illegal in cali... you cant even run a 4bbl carb on an engine that came with a 2bbl no mater what year it is, grandfather or not
and the lowdown on nos. its ILLEGAL. EVERYWHERE. dont have the bottle connected and your all gravey tho, but cops arnt exactly mechanical savvy so they will probably still write you a ticket if you have a disconnected bottle sitting in the trunk. best thing to do is hide it very well, or dont physicly keep the bottle in the car when your not on the track.
Obtaining NOS: any welding suply place will sell it to you, my family has opperated a welding shop before, its as simple as taking an empty tank to the place and saying, 'hook me up brotha', only problem is they usually just take your empty tank and give you a full one so youll probably have to shop around for a place that does on spot refills. maybe buy two bottles and leave one overnight for refill when you have a full sitting in the car? i dono, but nos isnt that hard to get, just dont go though an aftermarket store, they'll charge you out tha booty.
fingers are hurting now, im done.
Very interesting. Thing is they were all for v8's and NOS brand kits. Nothing on there about Nitrous Express, Zex, Venom, etc. Oh well.David Draper said:Hey guys,
I don't know about the rest of the country, but California has legal kits.
Lookup nitrous kits.
Ummmm, No. Check again. It is ILLEGAL to use nitrous on the street in California.
I never said anything about transporting it, I said USING it. I know I can have it in my car and all, thats not my point. If its hooked up to where I could use it, then its illegal. Having it there and not hooked up is not illegal.cruzerz545 said:Must be a local state law because there is a national law that says you can transport as much nitrous as you want up to 1001 lbs. Heck you can transport 1000lbs of TNT if you want to.
Basically if you get pulled over and you have nitrous installed they cant do jack about it, and they canr proove you were using it.
I called the CHP to clarify California law and the use of nitrous. He couldn't find it so he is going to call me back sometime tomorrow. I will let you all know what they say.pensfan83 said:It definitely varies from location to location. I can't remember where, but you could even have it hooked up as long as you didn't use it on the street
Well, actually, if any nitrous kit can get CARB certified, that means that they are not inherently going to be illegal (like an exhaust that removes the catalytic converter would be for example), it simply means that they are taken on a case-by-case basis.SiCivic99 said:

It is not explosive. They wouldn't use it in reddi wip cans if that was true. In that case it's the pressure that would cause an explosion, not the Nitrous Oxide.It's not legal anywhere. Let a cop see the tank and see if they don't write you a ticket for carrying explosive material w/out a permit. And if it's connected to the motor and they check...bye bye car. Experience Sucks.....
