Yes, soon I will be offering all of the Nitrous Express products since I get great deals from them. I am trying to get Zex but its a challenge to get good prices. And yes you could use the NOS injectors that mix the nitrous and fuel together.

You talking about plate style like on the TB?

Yes between the TB and the Blower or,under the blower on top of the intake manifold. Also i've been thinking about the TB spacers i've seen on ebay. I e-mailedone of the guys that sells them for the series 2 and he told me if i gave him the part number of my series 1 gasket he could make on for me for about 35-40 bucks. The material was PNEOLIFIC or something. i know i spelled it wrong but the first couple of letters are the same. It is suposed to drop the tempature of the TB alot. I wonder if we could use one of these under our M62 to help drop the charge temp.

I already have a plate kit per say and yes I will have it up very soon. Actually there are other companies who also have kits available. There are a few custom offers but be careful watch out for mixed materials that blow apart. I do them in a custom format as well the plate is made to the exact specks for your need.

Hell yeah!!
I you are giving to testers give me shot. I've been toying with the idea of running the giggly stuff in my SLE if I can find a fullt time job soon. I want to take this car to the track this summer when I get the mods done to the engine (of course I plan on gutting the car before going to the track though). Would be sweet to get some funny stuff and run some 13'* with it and mid 14'* without.
As for gutting the car, I know I can get 300 lbs out of it easily (not counting my junk, tools, etc I'll also remove from the car -I mean an easy 300 lbs off the weight of the car totally as it came off the assembly line). I would also guess I could probably even get the car into the 2900 lb range (one of my favorite things to do for building a car up is to tear it down). If I remember correctly EVERY 10 LBS LOST IS THE EQUIVELANT TO GAINING 1 HP. So if I lost 300 lbs off this car it'd be the same as 200hp in stock form.
So figure stock 3400 lb Bonneville SLE = 170 hp
add:
30-40 hp of mods to engine (without giggly gas)
minus:
300-500 lbs
Equivelant of stock Bonneville having 230-260 hp stock 9if you can understand what I'm trying to say. I guess that'd be a scooting Bonnie? Anyone agree or am I short on sleep?

I can now beat jegs price on NX and T&T and Venom "kits" but the cost on individual "bits and bites" is still cheaper at the big stores. They actually dont make any money on them. They only make a bit on the kits.

I've been running a Zex dry shot of 55hp on my 1993 SSEI for about 5 months now and I'm working on my 5th bottle. Although it doesn't seem to be at its full potential I haven't seen or felt any adverse effects from it. I actually contacted a few places to include Zex themselfs and everyone I've talked to said its "ok to use a dry system on a supercharged application". But I am looking into changing to a wet system. Zex now offers this as a universal kit. You can check it out at http://www.nipponpower.com/nitrous/zex_wet.html

DP offers both Zex and NX but here is a link to a poll of users of Nitrous products and you will get an idea of what system is preferred. Yes ití* a rice site but for a Nitrous kit comparison I cant see what would be a better place to find a real world opinion poll on the best system.

Regardless of the system you use the plate is very important and can be made by any machine shop.
