Default NOX my Tucson ?

Hi guys,
I need some information. I have a 2009 Tucson with what I believe is a 140 HP 2.0 and it's pretty gutless. I looked at the Turbo options, and that is a lot of money, and with all the supporting hardward and sofeware I don't want to go that route.
I was just watching some videos and I stumbled across a nitrous oxide kit for a Hyundai Tucson. I thought that would be a much less expensive way to add HP to my little family truckster.
I understand that nitrous is only safe for a factory engine in small "bursts" at a time. I am only interrested in extra HP for getting on the highway from short on-ramps.
My question is should the internals of the engine be modified to stand the extra heat and extra power if I only expect to use it once or twice a day, for three to five seconds at a time, or could catastrophic engine failure occur with those small amount of times?
I would plan to use a single nozzle "dry system" for this application.
Has anyone here put nitrous on their ride?
If so, do you use it for the street, or for racing?
(I imagine if for racing, then your engine has been beefed up to handle the more frequent use of the NOX.)
Any and all comments are welcome.

Nitrous is technically illegal on the street. And dangerous. If your Tucson doesn't have enough power for you, buy a different car.

I didn't know that it wasn't street legal, thanks.
