NOS / MPG questions

So I have two questions here.

1.) Can nos be added to the v6 5at without causing transmission explosion if used conservatively?
2.) Who has nos and where them pics at.
3.) Can a nos bottle be kept in my trunk in arizona (outside temp 100+ regularly, car parked in sun can probably reach 150 degrees when left for a while).

MPG:

What engine mods can be done to improve mpg? I talk to sherp a lot and he said before he got a tune he was at 30+ mpg because of his engine work. Are there specific things I can do to drastically improve mpg like this? RN i'm getting aboug 18 city 27 highway and 22mpg on average per tank.

I'm interested in the temp thing too(same town) as I measured my IAT outside of the tube at 140 the other day.

As far as mpg, 1. Bring your car to me and bring 1k and I should be able to get it up to around 20 or 22/30. 2. We're simply screwed because of the heat.

It's hard to make free power at 100-120iat. Fresh sparks, if not one step colder, clean intake system and heads, lapped valves or a valve job, and running good 5-20 oil or 20 oil are what have led me to the best. Also low rolling resistance tires and a proper suspension are key around here due to the amount of waves in our roads causing some serious bounce. Cutting weight helps too.
The mix milled to the right size spacer helps with city some thanks to added torque at low rpm.

Send me your number in a message Andy can take a look, plus I have a load of milled mdx spacers.

I'm pretty sure this guy has pics up in his build thread.

I'm in FL and left my car out with the bottle full, but never all day. There is a pressure safety valve (forget correct term) that will go around 3000psi, so your bottle technically will never blow but will blow that valve out. I don't advise letting the shop to "overfill" your bottle.
