    Question Nitrous on S65 ?

    Just out of curiosity,but why hasnt anyone run a nitrous setup on the S65's ? I've tried finding some stuff on it,and the only one i've seen run a nitrous setup on these cars is ASR. I'm currently an N54 owner..but if I ever switched to the S65 platform,I think i'd want to try nitrous,as long as its done the smart/right way.

    Nitrous has been run on the S65!

    These motors love nitrous people just have some nitrous stigma with BMW's. On the S85 V10 AWDmotorsports ran a direct port kit with a 150 shot. They ran 10's and dyno'd almost 600 whp, very nice. The S65 could easily do this same kit as it is the same thing with 2 cylinder missing, so it would be a 120 shot. With the nitrous and fuel being delivered directly this is the safest setup as well.

    ASR used a dry shot which seemed to work fine. I attached the dyno:

    Wet shot is much safer! As far as tuning, if anything timing should be reduced slightly however without a tune it can still work properly. You need good fuel for sure.

    I can see the s65 taking a 120 wet shot with no issue at all. I would personally run the shot on 100 octane or higher for peace of mind and a lil more power.

    I prefer wet and definitely prefer direct port if going all out.

    You can't run a dry shot with a tune, if you are running a tune, you need to back off the timing. That is also why I prefer direct port as you can run it with a tune.
