To be safe you dont want to spray under 3K. This is because it does put excessive load on the rotating assembly. Also the air flow does not have a lot of velocity. This causes the nitrous/fuel mixture to not be ingested completely. This is what causes nitrous back fires.

Window switches are one of, if not the biggest safety feature that you can add to a nitrous system

Since a bunch of nitrous guys are here already, I have a question. Do any of you use drag radials or slicks? How's the car holding up to them?

I don't and I leave like a school bus because of it or I would be spinning like mad, even without NO2. I believe the manual cars would hold up well since it has the stronger SS diff and axle shafts, I've seen plenty of SS's with DR's hold up. I might try some this spring. My 60' has never been below a 2, but I've trapped 105 to 106.5 spraying. With a good launch I should be in the 12's easily.

Couldn't agree more, I've seen a few intakes explode at the track, I consider a window switch or some controller a safety must.

Only spray when:

WOT
over 3k rpm
use a fuel pressure safety switch

Does anybody with this kit know if a window switch like this one can be added?

we always highly recommend the window switch. The NOS that you linked can be added to just about any car. Its pretty universal.

Yes, it fits no problems at all. You can see it installed in the photos on my profile page.
