Lucky it was the Nitrous line - although the fuel line is only 12 psi - fuel spraying onto hot exhaust manifolds is never a good idea........

Then again if it had been a loose fuel line the pistons would not last.
So swings and roundabouts.
anything loose on the nitrous system can be a real bad thing Sad
