How long does a bottle of NOS last? How much $$ for new one / refill?

I am intrigued by the NOS kits that some members have gotten. I think it would be pretty cool to have that extra boost on call when needed.

But how long does a bottle last? Is it measured in terms of total seconds on NOS? I'm sure it depends on driving style, but what are the rules of thumb?

Once you start a bottle, how long will it "keep" without leakage?

How much money for a spare bottle and to refill the bottle? How/where do you get spares/refills?


Thanks!

The usual NOS setup that ASR Engineering installs is a 20lbs. bottle.
Now how long a bottle lasts depends on how much you spray, how long and how often.
This is a short version to explain the setup.
Now the system runs on its own software flash created by ASR and installed by Active Autowerke. This is in addition to whatever ECU software upgrade you may already have. This manages the nitrous delivery. You can have the system off and you can have the system on but drive around normally and no nitrous delivery unless you go WOT.
The system is designed to spray when you go WOT and shut off the second you lift.
It is up to you and how often you go wide open and for how long you sustain WOT. Usually it is very short because there are no areas you can sustain such distance and speeds.
The 1/4 mile strip is about the only place to allow you such distance, time and velocity.
A rolling start from 60 mph and run to 180 is very short.

After the initial novelty wearing off (it is a blast) and you become judicious with the use, a bottle (20 lbs) can last about 5 to 7 days.

A bottle refill is $50. BTW the system has no leaks.

Regarding the E60 M5 accept no other NOS setup except one designed by ASR Engineering. If you have any more specific questions feel free to call Abid at (786) 258-0009. Abid will travel to you to do your install.

The system is totally automatic. Bottle opener and closer is automatic.

This was the M5 back in January. Abid and I are taking the car back this month and lets hope for better results.

Cheers, M5Ranger...Juan

Thanks M5Ranger. Great info. Very tempting.

My mod budget is currently being consumed on my 700 EVT kit for my 997, but the M5 will be next.

I'll give Abid a call when I get serious.

While I find the idea of Nitrous tempting on a car such as the M5, my biggest reservation is that the install is such that it's not easily removed or hidden.....and there goes my warranty.......what do you guys do if you take it in for service?

The bottle in the truck is the only give away of the system. There is absolutely no evidence of the system in the engine compartment, none!
All is run through the trunk, under the back seats, center console and under the rug to the glove compartment.
The switch in the glove compartment (window switch) is in the ceiling of the compartment and the digital control module is in the second compartment of the center console.
Some have put the bottle cross-wise against the back of the trunk and had design a wall compartment to hide the bottle. You to have access to the trunk through the backseat.
Theoretically the bottle is better to have along the long axis of the car though.
Abid takes care of my car completely so the dealer is no issue for me.

Cheers, M5Ranger...Juan
