Fast and the Furious, The - Does Brian Really Need NOS?
During the scene when Brian and his Mistubishi Eclipse first pulls up and stops and when he leaves after testing the limits of his car, you can CLEARLY see the NOS (Nitrous Oxide System) sticker on the rear panels between the rear tires and door on both sides of the car. Two scenes later, he walks into The Racer's Edge where he works and says he needs a NOS system.

He doesn't ask for a NOS "system". He points to the cans of NOS and asks for two of the big ones. He needed refills...not a NOS "system". Agree...?

Actually in Dallas I see cars all the time with universal exhausts and a decal sporting "V-Tec". Which doesn't make sense on a ford focus. Or how bout the Type R Prelude? Some people just throw decals on because they add horsepower. I mean the "V-Tec" sticker adds a minimum of 35 HP.

I think when they say. "NOS" they just mean nitrous oxide, not the brand. He means he wants the bottles not the whole system.

This isn't too hard to figure out. Each car in the movie was already fixed up before the movie was made (read Sport Compact Car I'm not sure which issue though it gives bios on the owners and the cars history and everything) Since these cars were already done before the script was made and the part about Brian wanting NOS was ever made. The car was probably already equipped with NOS and the movie didn't see the sticker or didn't think anyone would notice. The whole thing about him wanting NOS was just to add to the effect of the movie.

Ummm... Duh? If he had already had a NOS system in the car why, oh why, would the car have topped at such a low speed and they never indicated that during his little machine test that they hit a shot of NOS in any way, shape, or form. So my assumption would be that he did not previously have NOS in the car and if you wanna go all technical about how could it be done in the time frame... well he's a cop... you don't think the PD couldn't pull together a crew to do all this as long as they had the parts and all that. Besides, ever hear of a little something called the "Suspension of Disbelief"? Anyway if I remember correctly this is the morning and right after he gets to work and the race where he uses the NOS actually takes place that night, so they had a full 8-hour and then some work-day to get this done? Anyway I think people shouldn't nitpick so much. Just enjoy the movie!

I think the sticker is on the car because the place he 'works' at sells it and he is promoting it.

I don't think so. As ANY owner of a customized car knows, you NEVER EVER advertise a product/company on your car UNLESS you have something from it/them installed somewhere in/on your car. It is one of the rules of being the owner of a customized car. I think ALL customized car owners would whole-heartedly agree....

I agree with "NUMBER 8" He says EXACTLY that....and then Harry says "No, you'll blow your self to pieces"....which all means......there wasn't a NOS system in there before!

No he definitely goes "I need NOS," and he walks over to the bottles and says something like "i need one no two of these big ones" meaning the bottles

Ok, I have seen this movie (no joke) 18 times. Brian does in fact say "I need NOS" but he is referring to the tanks, not the system.

The NOS sticker is put there because the garage where Brian works sells NOS, not because he has it.

First of all, Brian was asking for a NOS system (NOS is a brand by the way). He had the sticker on his car because they purchased all of the vechicles for the movie from ricers in the SOCAL area. Speaking of modifying cars, yes most people who are serious about the hobby will NEVER put stickers on their car if the product isn't in fact used. The "riceboy" trend has now become for some just putting a loud exhaust on the car and slaping stickers on it.

Okay guys, I didn't want to get dragged (no pun intended) into this, but this is my view on things. Firstly, fitting all the lines from the tank to the engine bay would require time, with maybe even a bit of cutting a welding. Secondly, you can't just slap on a set of nitrous injection rails, particularly not on top of an EFI MIVEC engine (MIVEC is like VTEC if you didn't know). This sort of work couldn't really be done in the space of a few short hours, and anyway, who was going to do it for him? The shop didn't seem to have people milling around ready! This is why I reckon he just needed a bottle - hence he needed "the big one".

a lot of "kids" put these stickers on their cars these days. My brother is in a car club and a lot of the cars have the decals of things they don't have.

In the scene where Brian needs "N.O.S." He tells hairy he needs N.O.S. Twice.. But the thing is when he walks over to the display case of N.O.S. Bottles or Tanks whatever you want to call them, he says I need one of the big ones pointing at the bottle, and then he says better make it two. How can you get mixed up with something like that? Plus if it was a system it would take hours to install... Just think about it.

The fact that Paul Walker decides that he needs two bottles instead of one shows that he did not have nitrous. The only reason you would have two bottles is if you had a two stage nitrous system, and if he already had two stages he probably would have remembered because that would be pretty cool for a street driven four cylinder.

Ok, AFTER he's done washing up and puts on the store shirt, he tells Harry "I Need NOS" and "I need it by tonight!" He was asking for a NOS system, not replacement bottles. If he was asking for new bottles, he probably would've said "I need some new NOS bottles" or something like that.
