    Oh no,the bottle has to be empty!

    Also,you need a special fitting to go were the burst disc previously was (the tube screws on,there about $20 for the NOS bottles).

    Ill look it up in a sec.

    Well then your all set,just hook it up like the instructions on NOS shows.

    MAKE SURE YOUR BOTTLE IS EMPTY!

    Or else,you better like sever frost bite....

    frost bite? I live in canada. opening a nos bottle in my igloo would probably warm the thing up. Canadians laugh at the thought of frost bite.

    If your nitrous bottle ever exceeds a certain pressure, the blow down tube vents the nitrous outside the car.
