you will need a rock solid bottom end and some really good strong pistons for the NOS if you intend to go mad.

Think i read somewhere, (might have been a boy racer monthly like max flower or such like),That you could hook up 25bhp or at a push 50bhp worth of NOS without having to strengthen the bottom end. Make of that what you will,but i wouldn't take it as gospel,especially considering the source.
Now of course if you've already tuned the engine by adding lets say, twin-turbos and thus already overloading your motor with horses then even that amount of NOS will probably prompt a piston or two to pop up through your bonnet to say hi.

Noswizard, a vendor of all things nitrous, reckons on their website - and there's even a huge statement on the front page - that nitrous, if done correctly, will not damage a standard engine. Have a look at their site for info.

I have to say, it's sooooooo tempting....

I just looked into it a bit more... they even offer an engine warrnaty for the price of £1 per extra bhp, so a 25 bhp increase will only cost you £25! (for those who can't do the maths!). It's just the tenfold increase in your insurance premium that would be the killer!

Many NOS users don't declare it to their insurance companies because of just that,
killer premiums.

I guess its down to the individual whether
or not its deemed an acceptable risk?

Not for me it isn't,thats why i won't be getting
any.
