it wont affect it at all , i confirmed with the nos techs many times on this. the only thing the distance does it make it engage quicked or slower. . .
the farther you put it from the throttle body , the longer it will take it to get insde the engine when activatedm therefor allowing the tires to get better tracti0on between shifts.
the closer it is , it engages quicker therefore you will lose traction if dont have good tires , , ie , slicks, drag radials \
they just tell people 6-12-or12-16 or whatever is becuase most people on the streets dont use drag radials on the street therefore cant afford to have the tires break loose when engaged, i have mine a bit less than 6inches now and i felt a great difference from when it was like 12-14 inches before.
when in doubt call nos techs.

great input mtl ricer
Yea nice investment on that single winshield wiper.
But lets not get into a flaming war. We have our own opinions and lets just agree on that.

Well, the Zex is a dry setup essentially and the further you move the nozzle away from the TB the more time it has to cool the ingoing air and also the more time that it has to mix better with the air. It is safer with it further away from the TB, but it will sacrifice a little bit of that instant kick, but will help with traction and help keep you from breaking axles.

Later, Chris

Chrisneon is absolutely correct I talked with the ZEX reps and not the NOS reps and they told me optimum placement is about a foot away from the throttlebody. At four inches you are too close and can get uneven distribution through your cylinders which can cause detonation and then the big KABLOOEY!!!!!!

the distance has nothing to do with ditribtuion . how the hell would that make a difference the ony way you can get better dist is going direct port.

Obviously you didn't read that thread. The idiot in those pics double the diaphragms on his nitrous bottle and left his bottle heater on. When you ignorantly modify safety devices they become useless.
We all have our own opinions, but this is a nitrous forum. Maybe you missed the title at the top of the page. Obviously everyone in this forum wants to learn about nitrous and believes that it is a safe way to modify our cars. People have been using nitrous since before the accident that caused your mother to conceive you. Don't come in here and post bullshit on topics that you know nothing about. Actually, better yet, just don't come in here.

Fucking flamers.
And if you don't like me, you can stay out of this forum. I can guarantee that you won't see me in any other forum on this damn board. The only reason that I'm here is to help Wutangben out with distributing some tech. If he wasn't the mod here, I'd be over at p r e l u d e o n l i n e . c o m, where I don't have to deal with idiots like you.

Didn't you say when in doubt call the NOS techs... well shithead, he's got a zex kit and I talked to the zex techs. Go fuck yourself.
I am assuming that you are trying to flame me, but you have the wrong guy. I would never tell anyone to call the NOS techs, unless it was to get the correct jet sizes. I haven't talked to a competent NOS tech yet. Also, all dry kits follow the same phylosophy. Nitrous sprays out of a nozzle at 900 psi, is distributed to the cylinders by the intake manifold, mixed with fuel, and combustion takes place. It doesn't matter what name is on the bottle. Nitrous is always N20.
