Default Any experience or preference?

I've decided that I am going with my original plan of installing nitrous to my 88 SSE and getting whatever I can out of it b4 I decide to rebuild or replace the engine. Has anybody used a direct port system? What are the advantages to it? I have seen some installs that look like they are simply a matter of plumbing? Is that correct or is there something I am missing? Another question I have is with a wet kit. Has anybody seen or used a plate system? The tech at Summit told me that it was the easiest install and the easiest to change jets. I looked and the part # he gave me which was nos05120 and that is listed to be used with camaros and firebirds. Will this work with my 88 3800? Guess that is enough to chew on for now. Have at it!
88 SSE, new rack and pinion, alt, ps pump, water pump, ac system, factory am-fm radio, 180 stat,chrome K&N intake,Belden 8mm wires, NGK plugs, Delco ignition swap, new coil springs front and back, Gabriel Heavy duty shocks front and back. Strut tower brace and new sway bar bushings.New ceramic pads and shoes. CAI w/Heat shield, tranny cooler, performance tranny rebuild w/HD TC at 500 above stock stall and Trick Shift. 88 SSE, she'* a beast in the makin'!!

I think Curtis (clm2112) did a nitrous setup on his 88-91 LE, you should search for his thread...IIRC, it shows how to set up the bottle and the lines..
