2 things.....if you're gonna buy NOS from DP, it'* safe, or he wouldn't be selling it. Just follow the instructions.

And if you have specific application questions, Dr Jay and Allmachtige are our resident experts. Mach for the NA, Doc for the SC.

Woah, I didn't know you were gonna jump into this so soon bud!

Well if you need any help feel free to take the few hour drive up here...I would love to install a wet NX kit on your car. But yes, talk to DrJay on the specifics with your L67.

You really have til spring to put this on. This is one mod that you definently dont want to rush & slap on. Which will probably cost you more than you think to do it right.

Heeeeeyyyy.... Aight well honestly I'd be careful with that 2.2" pulley. At that level the delta temperatures are in excess of 250+degrees (2x normal) and introducing nitrous to it may not be so great an idea. Ever taken a glass plate out of the oven and put it in a bowl of ice? The other thing is to avoid spraying your MAF sensor. While not immediately damaging it uses whats called a "hot wire", in other words it heats up the element much like a lightbulb and checks the resistance at the other end. The flow of air over it changes the temp and hence the reading. Blasting cooollllddd nitrous over it will throw it into a tailspin. I wanted to add more but I have to run. Let me know if you have any questions, otherwise I'll check back in a day and add more.

Whatever you do, don't cut corners. If you don't have the money, WAIT. I'd suggest the pulley before the Nitrous system.

You seen the meet next march? Check it out in my signature, and see if you can come btw.
