Default N20 on a series 1

I've saw a few post on here about using N20 on the series 2. I'm interested in doing it on
my series one. Dry shot ? or Wet shot ?
I'm not going past 50 or 75 Hp'*. I've nuked motors and split blocks with this stuff before.
I'm just looking for a little extra added boost when I need to " merge " in traffic.
DO any manufactures make a kit for the series one ?
Is it reasonabley safe to inject it before the SC ?
Also, I want it hidden as much as possible. It loses its appeal when someone
see'* that big N2O tank. I want to be stealthy.
My goal is to cut 13'* and stil look stock.

DrJay (93SSEi) and Allmachtige (former 94SSE) are your best friends now

I can tell you that getting into the 13'* by adding nitrous to your car as it is in your sig is going to be a neat trick. But it might help. I don't think MINE would get there with just adding the juice.

I used a dry shot on the L27 and I believe DrJay used the same on his L67 before he rebuilt it. I'm pretty sure with a SC you will want a dry shot over a wet shot to prevent puddling. Me and Jay both use(ed) the Zex kit, which works on just about every car out there with a TPS on the throttle body. The system is armed with a switch and once you reach full throttle it injects the nitrous. The only configuring you have to do is tell the NMU box (holds all the selinoids) when you reach WOT...aka: full TPS voltage. You can drive around all day with the system armed and not inject any nitrous as long as you don't reach that particular voltage the NMU learned.

Continue to ask away!

I respect your opinion and you make sense. If yours wont hit 13'* mine Da*** sure won't.
so it goes 14'* oh well. I still get to hit a little button and make it go faster.
I just can't think of much else to do besides geting into the block and heads.
My car has a full l67 crate motor from GM in it. It'* in prestine conditon internally.
I don't want to go all out and start yanking the big stuff till i have too.

I just want enough juice to hit a button and make folks spill their coffee. Thats all.

it makes for great bench racing and seems fun.

I'm not sure how 'real' the ratings apply? How much hp is a 50 shot REALLY? I think you can probably come pretty close in calculating how much HP you'd gain, and then back-solve for 1/4 times. You should be able to figure it out within a couple tenths of a second, I'd bet.

I'm not a juice-dude, so the hp numbers will have to come from others.

You know, I was really going to take the nitrous thing to a new level with some very critical tuning and data logging....but I felt I was wasting my time (personal issue).

There are many out there who can get over 75hp from a 75 shot when properly tuned. If you just slap it on with the 75 jets, I know for sure you're not going to make 75hp right off the bat. However, I honestly don't know how close or far you would be from that "75hp" rating. Jay?

In my experience the " real 'numbers are ALWAYS lower.
Otherwise my 5.0 mustang ( using manufactures specs ) would have about 500 hp'*.
Ahahahhahaha .. yeah right. During bench ( beer ? ) racing BS session one night
we actually added up all the manufacter'* claimed HP quotes and came up with a number close to that. It'* a 3200 pound car and cuts low 13'*. So they are about 200 off ..

Yeah, thats my style. i will just slap it on and hit a button. Oh , I'll say that I'm getting it dynoed later ...and talk about super tunes ... but in reality I'll bolt it on and go.
Also, I prefer to use a button. It makes me grit my teeth more. I don;t want the TPS sensor to turn it on. It'* no fun if I can't hit the " Go baby go " button.

yeah, but with the switch you risk blow you and yor car to bits and pieces. With the TPS activated N2o you are running alot safer.
And N2o is not a toy as I'm sure we all know. I've toyed with the idea, but I guess I'm a little to wary of using it on a daily driver (although the idea of blowing some LT1 Z28 away with a Bonneville SSE sure does have an air of attraction about it).

Ofcourse. Thats the whole mistique of it. It worked for Cobra ,
Walker texas Ranger, nicholas cage., AND Road warrior it'* gotta work for me. They lived in the movies though right ?

Just kidding. I may set up a WOT switch and a button. If I have N2o though... it HAS to have a button that says " Oh SH* " or go baby go " or .. Hyperdrive ... or something.

Otherwise .... I don't get a buzz when I press it.
