heh yea using nitrous when the engine isn't running? hrm... Anyway relocating the nitrous is the whole kicker. I put it there because I want to make it work where it is. I was wondering if putting a partition between the nitrous nozzle and the maf sensor would be good so none of the nitrous hits it. Probably not good for the poor thing anyway. Guess I'll try it this weekend and see what happens. A neat little thing I'm gonna do is relocate the activation switch to the cig lighter. Put a turn switch behind the dash and glue it to the end of the cig lighter itself. Then mount the whole thing in the dash. It'll keep the stock appearance but once i turn the cig lighter to the right the nitrous will be activated, neat huh? Was also trying to find a way to use the gain controls just under the stereo to control the ride height. Min = Low Max = High (duh right). Radio shack should have a few parts to do that, then its just a matter of running the wires. Should be pretty cool. If not i was thinking about hooking it up to the volume controls on the steering wheel but then I'd probably have to hold the button to get it exact. I could use capacitors to move it up an inch at a time but I like the sliding bar adjustment idea better.

you cant put a partition there. first it will disrupt the airflow to the MAF and second, the jet is made to produce a certain spray pattern.

the only way is that if the pcm doesnt keep up is to repostion the jet around the intake tube till it does or get a spacer for between the TB and the intake

Uhhh, I think I confused you guys. When I first installed the system I turned the ignition on and shot some nitrous in to make sure it was working. No I dont shoot nitrous in, start the car, and take off! Thats mental!

I have a series 1 plate comming and it will be at my cost (cheaper) just to keep you guys from blowing your cars to bits. I have a tester lined up and a few other goodies too. I work directly with people who have 20years exsperience with NOS and I also work directly with NX ,T&T and Venom. The upper intake for the series 2 non SC 3.8 is on its way and I will have a quote very soon. I can also do upper intakes for the series 1.

I'm confused are you spraying a dry shot after the MAF and before the TB
If so your computer not going to make the necessary fuel adjustments.

OK I JUST READ WHERE THE TB AND MAF ON THE 3800 v-6 ARE INTEGRATED

If you're spraying the Nitrous directly on the MAF you may damage the sensors filament or throw off it'* readings.

For this application the nitrous nozzle would have to be carefully aimed so as to completely miss the sensors filament, ideally being installed in the MAF meter itself on the opposite side of the filament.

I hope that this helps.[/b]

Well this probably isn't news to many although nobody mentioned it. Putting the air filter right onto the TB is cool for looks but not for performance. After doing so my boost gauge only goes up to 7.5. I realize this is more accurate to what the actual boost levels in the 93 SSEI are BUT knowing the gauge used to go up to 10lbs+ and really I was only getting 7-8lbs what is it when its only reading 7.5? So what causes this, the lack of air in the intake tube which no longer exists? That was my thought but whatever it is I'm putting the tube back on. So it all makes sense on why car companies aren't saving money on plastic tubing for intakes when they could put the air filter on the TB....lack...of...performance haha. This is how I've learned about cars, most have died in the process but oh well. Cars destroyed by my curiosity and heavy foot:

1987 Caprice
1988 Thunderbird 5.0L (loved it)
1976 BMW 2002 (RARE!)
1979 Monte Carlo (Straight pipe exhuast on a 305 mmmmm)

Yea they were old but they were in great shape, especially the Monte. Fully rebuilt 305 with Edlebrock all over the engine. *sigh* R.I.P
