Default Nitrous Installed, such disappointment!

Well the 55 shot of Zex dry is in and I think I have some troubleshooting to do because I am sadly disappointed with the results.........here is what I have to report so far in the first half day of operation ( and yes I am well aware that my current setup is far from ideal and needs some changes, but I still thought I'd at least get a minor thrill out of it.

Setup

Jetting for 55hp Zex dry shot, nozzle drilled into TB beside MAF, MAF is NOT haveing nitrous shot into it.

Stock 41-601 Delco Plugs, NGK TR6 going in tomorrow.

Superchip module still installed, will be set back to stock program tomorrow, I was worried that the superchip might promote detonation but I felt absolutly NO abnormalities when I got on the nitrous ( knocking, hesitations etc. ) and when I did a plug inspection after a few good shot, there was NO sign of detonation and the plugs were a beautiful caramel tan color, not too lean, not too rich as far as I can tell......HELP?

I would wait till you got the right temp. plugs otherwise you could/more likely melt them. Also I would get an adjustable fuel pressure gauge and then get it dyno tuned. Had a friend that gained just about 70 horses from the Zex'* 55 shot. But then again this was also on an Accord.

Do you have a supercharger?
If so, "whats his name" will jump in and give you some ideas.

Do you have a CAI or Ram Air?
If so I put the nossle right at the beginning of the pipe bend after the filter (not 100% sure, will check for you). And angle it straight into the TB.

Put in those NGK V-Power plugs.

Interesting thought on the Superchip, also try buying NX replacement jets...I know I am very soon.
Personal experience: The 75 shot brings my car to life, but you gotta remember you're running a 55 dry shot. This isn't a 200 wet shot that most pro street drivers run.

If you are SC'd a wet shot is the best way to go. Dry shot is optimal for NA cars

Not sure adjustable fuel pressure regulator is avail for series 1

Plugs go in tonight, it'* not the plugs, zero signs of detonation on them, I'm leaning more towards one of my vacuum line connections is misplaced and the Zex management system is doing it'* job and shutting down the nitrous after a very brief spurt when WOT begins.


Yes it'* supercharged.
