I have always used a wet kit. I never did like the idea of the injector being the only source of added fuel. What if your injectors were close/maxed at WOT car goes lean and bye bye motor. Granted I have fouled plugs when the bottle runs out and you are spraying the extra fuel but I would much rather replace plugs than a motor.

On an older car like ours, using a wet nitrous system that injects both gasoline and nitrous simultaneously into the intake manifold can prove to be dicey. This is because all the fuel being injected can sit in the manifold and cylinder head's ports and get absorbed into the oil sludge and carbon buildup like a sponge, making it a bomb in the event of a slight backfire. All that fuel wants to combust, and it will rip apart expensive hard parts in the process. Therefore, a dry kit is the safer, more preferred choice for our Killer Whale.

Guess they said older cars with lots of sludge in the intake is the main reason they didn't go wet.
Said it once and I'll say it again. I wouldn't to rely on my injectors to be the only source of fuel go lean and burn up pistons cylinders ect. Been there done that on a good nitrous tune. On nitrous unless you plan on over sizing your injectors go wet.
