i really cant tell you how much NITROUS to hook up, but say goodbye to any warrenty you had left... that engine is not known for its internals... you may want to look into the forced induction forum...

well, if they see that the damage was obviously caused by boost or Nitrous, and neither of those parts are on your car, they are going to be a bit suspicious...

if youre careful, and dont go nuts, your car can handle boost.. got to the forced induction forum and ask aroud... personally on the ser i would go with headers intake exhaust, pully motormounts, not necessarily in that order... that car is pretty quick on its feet as it is... the qr2.5 and b15 sections are a big help for things like this, you should sniff around in there...

Most people with your car are running NX wet kits with 50 shot nozzles. Some are running higher, but I would run the 50 shot for a while first if you do go NO2.
NO2 is like hookers IMO. They look really cheap and fun but could have nasty consequences. I personally haven't tried either :p
Your car fully bolted with an SAFC should yeild over it's factory crank rating.
And once you have the SAFC (or some fuel tuning, which you would do after IHE) you can run NO2 a little safer if it's still not enough :)
If you have an exhaust go for a header next and you'll feel it on the butt dyno. I would get the NISMO if I were feeling rich and HotShot if I weren't. Then I'd get the NISMO or AEM CAI. There's more avail when you start searching around. Motor mounts are inexpensive too.
Here's a shop that could answer all your questions and then hook you up with competitive prices www.powertechimports.com It's in Canada but does teh magority of it's sales in US.

Their are people doing 75 shots occasionally with no problem. They are fully bolted on. Tell me your car is not stock?

Heath. Do this:

1) Don't listen to your buddy. He doesn't know a thing about your car
2) Spend some time researching about your car before throwing any odd nitrous kit on it.
3) Spend the money wisely. Research nitrous kits and features and make your decision based on the research you've done.
4) Always spend the money.......going cheap will cause problems ;)

also, if you have a 2004 SER, that means you have an automatic transmission, right?

that could be a complication...our autos are not that strong. i cant say for sure one way or another though since ive never ran N2O on my auto.

Seems like the new engines are pretty weak, I wouldn't put anything on it til you can figure out how to build it up internally, first.

50 shot is fine for 3-4 bottles on these small motors then up grade your clutch for a "track 75-100shot". I'm not sure how long the tranny will hold-up in an auto. If you just wanna drag the car then take out the springs in the accumulators and the auto will slam each gear. ("Don't drive to the tack like that")

I would NEVER EVER EVER run higher than a 75 shot on a stock QR25. Please PLEASE Don't EVER suggest something like that again.

a 100shot is a LOT more likely to blow the internals on a QR25.

we're not talking SR20 here...get it straight. Besides the fact he's got an auto tranny, a 100shot could likely eat the crap out of it.

just because of the fact he has an auto tranny. I'd say don't do anything to the engine before modding the tranny.

You really don't think the motor will hold a 100 shot a few times at the track?

I'm thinking he has all bolt-ons for max velocity, but are you suggesting he would need internal work?
Ive heard of a guy blowing his engine although I forget what part. IIRC he used a 100 shot. Most guys use a 35-50 shot, some do 75. 75 occasionally seems safe but not any higher. All of these were on a 6 speed Spec. The guys who run without a problem know what they are doing. As a start, you CANNOT run N2O on our stock platinum tipped plugs, you must go Irridium and 1 step colder.
