Guys, what is the risk of installing a nitrous system on my Gt 2005? it has 115000 miles on it. Does mileage make any difference on an engine?

if you do add N2O then make plans for a rebuild... the car has to be a highway car for it to have that many miles on it... so that might be a factor in how much ware is on it... and if it is loose than any poweradder is going to put more stress on the powertrain.. it could last a long time but I would think it would cause a shorter life of the motor mainly.. it also depends on how hard it is driven and what size shot you hit it with.. does it have anything done to it at all? cold air intake or a tune?

No it is still stock nothing added. is there anything better to add power without risking of loosing the motor?

that's a good question. I have been wanting to put a cam in and spray my '07 with 30,000 too. I'd rather have the car last a while more than having it that much faster for a short time.

You'll need to put more than one cam in or you'll probably blow the motor right away. I've got 90k on my 07 and I've got 500rwhp... You'll be fine with a little baby 100 shot:D

Do a compression test, if everything looks good and the engine sounds good I would add a 100 shot. I have friends put 20 psi on a vr6 engine with 200k miles on it and makes 400whp. Granted it's a totally different engine, but as long as the engine was well taken care of and up to par it should be fine. Make sure you have all the supporting mods for the nitrous kit such as bottle heater, window switch, fuel shut off valve etc etc. Do some good searching and you will be fine.

I think it has a lot to do with how you break in the car and how you drive it. I have dogged the **** out of all my mustangs. I literally mean abused the **** out of the motor and have never, I repeat never have blowed the engine. The last one I built I had bought all the parts to do a complete stroker rebuild, so we tried to blow the motor a week before the build was to begin, and I can honestly say I couldn't blow the motor. Now granted, I didn't just redline the **** out of it. That is the reason I have always been a mustang fan. But take it for what its worth, you play, you will eventually pay.

So which power adder is safer to add. The car is in Lebanon and im shipping all the parts from usa. The car was for the police i knew this from the flash lights installation kit, it still there, thats why she got the high mileage. Are police cars modded in anyway?

the things id be worried about with that car, is the rear and trans as it was being used as a "utility" vehicle.
Bic criss you mean the gears and the transmission? i was also shipping a 3.73 gears, i canceld the nitrous and went for a cia + sct, is it also risky to upgrade the gears yu think? im lost here.
