I need some serious help with Nitrous on my 2010 Camaro 2SS. I only want to do a 75 shot right now. I was going to get one from ZEX but apparently there only doing one for the LS3 not the L99. (manual not automatic) If there's anyone out there that can point me in the right direction with my L99, I'd give my Hot smokin Girlfriend for a few months.. lol. Whats the best one, Should I have someone put it on for me, how much is installation, How should I hide everything, Can I even put the gas pedal option on a Automatic, etc. Anything will help me. And any good pointers?

Where ya'll putting your switch when you want to inject the Nitrous? ZEX says they make a (In addition, the system also offers an electronic TPS switch for reliable system activation at wide-open throttle; perfect for the Camaro’s throttle-by-wire system.) But when your in Competive Mode or just in Regular mode, When you put the gas pedal to the floor the R.P.M's only go to like 1800 or what ever. Is that gonna mess up with the NOS? How is that gonna work when I have the pedal to the medal but I dont want it to run when I want to. I want to be able to spray when I want to. Maybe I want to tease someone for a few races? Where is everyone putting there switches? Sorry if I was going back and forth from Manual spray to Throttle-by-wire. Bare with me please. Thanks

i am thinking it would be better to sell my ss car and get a z28 when they come out. seems to be an easier way to get Hp and maybe have a more valuable car in future

If you have it setup the right way and don't take any shortcuts and have the right tune nitrous can last a long time. Just like any modification you make if you don't do it right it can go bad.

75 shot is fine on a stock motor, there's some people running upwards of a 200 shot on stock bottom end motors. its all in the tune. as long as you get a full kit (not just a nozzle and a bottle) from a reputable vendor, it will perform just fine.

Any of the kits on the market can be configured to do that. What you will need is a "window switch" to set the on/off times. If your car shifts at say 6200 you set the off time to 6000 so it shuts off the nitrous right before the shift then it will activate it again after the shift. Your on setting can be 3K, 4K whatever you want.

I have a nitrous kit for sale in the following thread: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104855

Like previously stated a window switch will help with the spraying through the shifts issue

I'm seriously thinking of putting nitrous on my 2010 SS (m6/ls3) but I'm curious as to how much I should be spraying. what supportin modifications i might need and how I'm supposed to tune it.
I have CAI and minor exhaust work. I also know that the LS7 fuel injectors that I have stock should be able to handle a decent load.
I'm good at tuning with a DST (DiabloSport Trinity) but I'm used to tuning turbo'ed applications. Never turned for nitrous before. I assume I will need to move on to another tuning system..

First step would be to decide if you want to do a dry or wet shot.

There are quite a few people hitting their stock bottom ends with 200 shots... i think orange chevy even hit his with a 250. a 150 shot would be very safe.

Great article, thanks, Spike.

I've just started reading about nitrous and meth injection. I understand both increase oxygen intake and cool things down to increase performance.

Can someone explain in noob terms what the differences are between meth and nitrous? I mean, I'm trying to figure out if one of these is better for my application and goals. Is mitrous better for TT cars, whereas meth is better for SC cars?

I've done some searching and I find articles on each set up, but I'd like to find something that compares them.

Meth and nitrous are two totally different animals.

Nitrous is an oxidizer that combined with fuel is a power adder. It cools the intake charge because it is cold when it comes out. You can make a lot of hp with it. I have a buddy who squeezes a 500 shot all the time and can go higher than that.

Methanol is a fuel that supplements more power. It is usually combined with water and together their rate of evaporation and latency help cool the intake charge. Also, methanol is like 120 octane. With the higher octane and cooler intake charge temperature you can add more timing and/or boost to make more power. Typically you can see up to 50 hp on a forced induction setup.

I'm good at tuning with a DST (DiabloSport Trinity) but I'm used to tuning turbo'ed applications. Never turned for nitrous before. I assume I will need to move on to another tuning system..

So I did go ahead and order the nitrous kit. I ordered a NX wet/plate system and the upgrade package.. I'm jetted for 150-shot and tuned with 5.5degrees of timing pulled and AFRs set. I have to say nitrous is the best bang for the buck. My entire kit with upgrades and wideband O2 only cost around $1,500... which beats the hell out of any turbo or supercharger kit.

The car takes the 150-shot great. (Though I think it would be better if I removed the converters out of my exhaust)

For the person that ask about where everyone is mounting switches.. I mounted both arming switches (master arm and bottle warmer) as well as the purge button along the side of the center console. (Yes this did require drilling).. works great for me.. I launch 1st gear then right after I grab second gear i reach down and flip the master arm back on.. car has a few traction issues with the nitrous.. hopefully this set of NT05Rs I just ordered will fix this.

is the bottle warmer necessary for a place like Las Vegas? Should it be on whenever I want to spray, or just when I want to spray in the winter time?

On a full bottle probably not.. but as the bottle starts to get down to a half or lower it comes in useful. N2O is best at about 1,150psi. A full bottle at 90ish degrees for me is getting 950psi. Once the sun goes down and I'm in about the third round of an EFI shootout with only a half bottle left I can't get over 600psi without a bottle warmer.. (600psi isn't even enough to frost the air when I purge.. and would only give me like a 40hp - 60hp jump instead of the 150 I'm jetted for)

As far as when you have it on.. I have mine on whenever my bottle is open. I have the NX automatic heater. It keeps mine at 1,150psi. (just don't ever turn it on with the bottle closed)


On a side note. My Nitto NT05Rs did help with my traction issue.. I'm now launching on the bottle.. I cut a 1.83 60ft and went 9.76 in the 1,000ft. Tried to launch from a higher RPM to get my 60ft into the 1.7x range.. but unfortunatly my passenger side halfshaft disagreed with me... it got replaced this afternoon.

Not For Me!

If you search YouTube, you'll find way too many videos showing disastrous explosions on cars using Nitrous! These happen to people who know what they're doing...imagine what would happen if I tried it....LOL, no, that would not be funny!!!

Only time I have ever seen them blow up was from back fire or leak. Sometimes even the people that know what they are doing try to push it a little to far with the timing.. Also leaking solenoids can flood the intake manifold with n2o and when you go to start the motor.. boom.

I know alot of people that have been spraying motors for years.. one of them has an LS2 on a 350 shot. He has never had a nitrous backfire.

Just got a zex kit for my SS, we will see what happens.. I'm holding off on the install until I grab a cam, clutch, injectors, fuel pump, ported oil pump and axles.

Need Help!

I'm thinking of putting a Nitrous Plate System on my 2010 SS. (150 shots)
My question is Can I use NItrous Outlet Progressive Controller (part# 202-00-6101) to correct the timing and the airfuel?
or do I have to get a Time Delay Box ?
