Yea, rho with the costs of living as they are now I think purge will be further down the road. I'll have to check out the difference in price between z3 ans m3 fenders..

I wouldnt suggest installing a nitrous system unless you plan on using it alot (and I wouldnt suggest getting one unless you want to have to get a new engine every 5 to 6 months)

well from what I understand, a purge kit is completely visual, has nothing to do with the engine. I dont plan on doin a performance boost with it, that costs WAY too much. I've seen direct port kits goin over a grand. I'd rather stick with a little kit that goes from bottle to hose to whatever vents I wanna set it up to. Most likely the fender vents. It doesnt have anything to do with the engine at all.
(not that I would mind a 3sgte in its place.. TURBO!)[sm=gears.gif]

I dont see how you can operate a purge without having nitrous. all the air from the purge is "purging the nitrous lines free of air". What else are you going to purge?

nah, I have the 5sfe.

I could be wrong, but from what I understood about running a show purge kit, not performance, you're shooting the nos vapor into the air. Its also common that people will buy the LED nozzle so the vapor shooting out will light up. Rather than shooting the nos into your block, you're shooting it out of the car. No need to touch the engine.

its not nos that you see coming out of a purge, its air (to keep the nos injection pure).

it actually is nitrous being blown through the lines to clear any otheroxygen or gasesthat may be in the lines. its done so that nitrous is at the closest point to the engine in the line. when doing just a purge kit never intending on anything touching ur engine i suppose u could fill ur tank with 02 if u really wanted to.

Never thought of that, I was just gonna talk to my buddy josh with Nitrous Xpress and have him hook me up. I like the NX brand, so havin some of their materials wouldnt be too bad. So i could fill the NX tank with o2 rather than NOS? Would that be cheaper?
