finished the nitrous install last week too, here are a few pics of it. zex dry 55 shot w/ zex nitrous ejector air filer and zex bottle heater. yes the car is dirty, I need to wash it. Before I run it im getting colder plugs just to be safe, and running car on 91 oct. gas.


Bottle mounted wrapped in the heater.



Zex filter, nitrous line wrapped in wire loom to keep it as stealth as possible(as if the zex filter with something going into it is stealt lol)


switch inside of the coin pocket, again for stealthiness.
The "smart box" is behind the center console.

let us know what you run 1/4mile time. you should change you wot switch to a push button so when you launch you can hit the switch on the last yellow and come off the line with nitrous. If you hammer down the throttle to get it to kick in fully you will spin really bad unless you are running drag radials or slicks. trust me.

Not exactly sure what you are saying... when launching you dont want to "hammer" down the throttle anyways, and you dont want to spray right from the start... you want to ease into launch or you will get wheel spin with or without nitrous. My suggestion is keep it armed but dont give her hell till atleast 2cnd gear. I ran a 75 shot never had a problem with wheel spin at launch yet i always had the system armed.

Good setup though but I would move the spray nozzle close to the intake manifold. Nitrous separates and thins itself out the farther it has to travel when not compressed. The less distance it has to travel to the combustion chamber the better. What size shot are you running?

Just remember... don't go out there balls to the wall expecting to run great times the first time using spray. Play with it, experiment with launches, learn when the best time to spray is. In honesty you will probably be dissapointed with what you run the first few times, but eventually you will start running faster with each run once you get used to it.

running a 55 shot. I may put the nozzle closer to the throttle body, but I have heard that the nitrous atomizes with the air better because it has more time. comments on this theory? im not a nitrous guru at all, just know a little.

Yeah I was thinking of wet kits, with a wet kit the farther it has to travel the more the nitrous separates from the fuel, and the fuel starts sticking to the intake walls and can puddle in the intake manifold... it was early when I posted that response... wanst thinking quite right yet lol.

i've been using nitrous for a while now and my best 60ft.'s and 1/4 mile times have come from hitting the nitrous right when the last yellow kicks. check out my in car video. it is in this nitrous forum and you will see how good my launches are. If you are not running radials or slicks I don't recomend it though. on a dry shot the farther away from the man. the better. wet shot direct port is the way to go.

my friend has a y8 in a 00ex coupe and is running low 15's on a 55 shot. you should be doing better than that b/c your lighter as long as you have a good clutch. it didn't take long for me to replace my stock for a good one. good luck and let us know how you did.

well it doesnt really mix with the air different it just gives your sensor enough time to figure out how much more fuel your motor will need when u spray.. keep it 3" from the throttle body u should be good
