Warning: nitrous noob with lots of questions.
 
I am a soon-to-be LFX A6 owner and I will be spraying it with the Ny-Trex Triple system. I understand just about all there is to know about nitrous except:

1.) How should I handle shifting with the WOT switch? Don't you have to let off the juice when you shift? And if so, how? Do you cut the arming switch off since you shouldn't let off the gas for shifting?

2.) Should I go to a colder plug with 100 shot? If so, what is the recommended plug? Will the colder plugs affect fuel milage or performance when I am not spraying? Keep in mind this will be a daily driver.

3.) Recommend fuel octane? Should my tank only contain the higher octane fuel when I spray or can it be mixed?

4.) Can I route the bottle pressure guage to driver's view? Reccomended bottle pressure?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks for looking.

If i'm not mistaken, with an automatic, you are WOT between shifts. the throttle body is open through every gear and between shifts. kind of like power shifting with a manual. so there's no worries about letting off on nitrous between shifts. Just mash the gas and go! ps, window switch is recommended.

2.) Should I go to a colder plug with 100 shot? If so, what is the recommended plug? Will the colder plugs affect fuel milage or performance when I am not spraying? Keep in mind this will be a daily driver.
NGK LTR7IX -11 6510 iridum is what I believe everyone is running, that has nitrous. me included, when I had it. I had no problems daily driving my car.

3.) Recommend fuel octane? Should my tank only contain the higher octane fuel when I spray or can it be mixed?
I would only put in the highest octane fuel.

4.) Can I route the bottle pressure guage to driver's view? Reccomended bottle pressure?
never got to this stage before I traded in my car. lol but i'm pretty sure you can do that. good luck!

Any help would be appreciated, thanks for looking.

see red :nod:

I wouldn't recommend using the iridium plugs, use a NGK BR7EF for 100 shot.

any particular reason? :popcorn:

The iridium electrodes are physically very small. Nitrous creates a lot of additional heat that can potentially melt/wear the tiny electrode vs the larger electrode of a copper plug

buy a window switch and set it to shut off between shifts points. Otherwise, you can spray between shifts without issue if the tuning is spot on.

2.) Should I go to a colder plug with 100 shot? If so, what is the recommended plug? Will the colder plugs affect fuel milage or performance when I am not spraying? Keep in mind this will be a daily driver.

ngk br7ef plugs, you wont notice any negative effects.

3.) Recommend fuel octane? Should my tank only contain the higher octane fuel when I spray or can it be mixed?

93 octane with a proper nitrous tune.


4.) Can I route the bottle pressure guage to driver's view? Reccomended bottle pressure?

yes u can, you have to be creative. 950 psi is optimal

Any help would be appreciated, thanks for looking.

Another question... Where can I get a switch pannel like this? I've been on the site and looked at them before but I don't remember what it's called.

they're from emblempros. He can put any text you want

PoorMansCamaro 05-10-2013 07:11 AM

when I had nitrous, I had the switches in the center console. I like it there better. more stealth. lol

I have an question to tack onto this...

I was talking to a couple guys that have very very large engines and spray like 1000 shot. He runs sub 5's in the 1/8th in his outlaw true 10.5 car.

They warned me off on a wet system on stock internals on the v6. said it would get to hot for stock, and should have forged internals before going with a wet spray.

Was wondering if someone had some extra input on that.

There's more than enough cars here running nitrous that have put many passes on their cars without anything happening. I'm pretty sure all if not 99% run wet systems

any particular gap I need to set it at, or is what comes out of the box, good?
