There are a few kits that offer a 35, 45, and 55 shot combo. It'* the one taylored for the 4 cylinder imports. I believe Zex has a kit as well as Nitrous Express. One of those kits will go for around $430 (Zex) cheapest price. Nitrous Express I would have to check my catalogs. I will if you want.

hector, if you use a zex system that goes off of the fuel in demand, is it possible to use a dry system and use larger injectors if you go with a small shot?
just curious. getting the itch of funny gas

Hector! I've been reading about how you can add NOS to the intake side after the intake but before the turbo to increase boost? Any take on this?

if you run a wet system and do this, it will do nothing but puddle the fuel in the intercooler.

Deathrat - where did I ever say where to put nitrous in a turbo setup. Noone has ever asked that question. To ansnwer this, in a turbo setup you have to put the nitrous before the MAF is it'* dry (bad idea) in any turbo setup or any setup period so the computer can read if there is more incoming air. In a wet setup in any forced induction car you do NOT spray through the MAF. It is not necessary since you are doing it manually by spraying the fuel and nitrous yourself so you don't want to the computer to add even more fuel and go rich plus you don't want to foul up the MAF sensor with fuel. And you NEVER inject nitrous into a turbo, crack city and failures will occur. The turbo is hot on exhaust housing from the exhaust, they usually glow. The compressor side is also hot from compressing air so not a good idea to "instanly" cool it with nitrous, will cause cracks even though its an aluminum housing, can't take that temperature change that fast.


Jeffery - IT'* not a problem to really use a small dry 55 shot. The Zex system is progressive and will allow the computer to adjust and you will have some saftey features. But!, does not guarentee something cannot go wrong. But using a 55 shot reduces those chances to much less.

thank you hector, i really think a ZEX system is in my very near future.
i have heard of ricers using nitrous to cool their intercoolers in classes where nirtous wasnt allowed in the motor. but a costly matter

Default nos kit

So will a 35,45,55, kit be available from ADTR in the future? Maybe with all hardware or a TB plate to spray into? Would we be able to use the NOS injecters that mix it with the fuel?
