signature ..... even though you posted the info

N2O is around $500-600 installed.

Look at Apexi electornics such as V-AFC. Perhaps a Unorthodox Racing pulley set.

You can get away with a small shot of NO2 without damaging the internals, you may need a tranny cooler though.... I'd just do the basic upgrades, headers (if you can find them), catback exhaust, under-drive pulleys,

I wouldn't expect any problems from a 35 dry shot or 50 wet. I'm thinking of throwing in a 75 wet shot! ... and SN is correct, the 6th gen AT needs a tranny cooler.

I rather you save your money for a tranny swap.

Tranny swaps cost about half of the value of our cars! Not worth it IMO. I wonder about swapping to a newer OEM AT, but I'd expect that if it were possible, I'd have seen it done.

yea it does cost alot, but it'll save you alot more when his transmission blows from shots of NO2 or any kind of FI.
Even with goodwill from Honda, there's still a chance of the new rebuilt tranny failing. And trust me, Honda is not going to do goodwill if they know you have some kind of FI on your car.

From what I've read, there's almost as much of a chance of failure on the Dr. Evil tranny. The shots that I recommended are safe enough for his car. As long as an rpm window switch is used, there won't be a lot of extra strain on the tranny ..... and the engine can take a whole lot more than the tranny.

Oh yeah ..... did I forget to mention that bolt-ons really don't do much for a 6th gen AV6? It would cost AT LEAST 5 times as much to get the performance out of bolt-ons that you can safely get out of juice.
