Just about all the nitrous kits say easy install. From what I have been learning and reading this is the farthest thing from the truth. To do it SAFELY and effectively it takes days of wiring (to do it right) and plenty of tuning skill.

days of wiring...both solenoids are wired together so they are enabled at the same time. Use a swtched 12v source for the power. The black wires both go to ground. You can add a toggle for an arming switch and a push button for the "spray" button. Of course you could add a 5v reference WOT switch and pressure gauge if desired. Took about an hour.

you could add a "window swtich" which is made by MSD that will not allow the circuit to power until a certain rpm and limit rpm by means of rpm pills.

And..... if you want to do it right

window switch
progressive controller
bottle heater
low fuel pressure safety shutdown
dedicated fuel pump or upgraded fuel system
maybe some gauges and bottle opener
relays and fuse panel

I see a few days there once you build a relay panel and switch console.

only difference is the handy dandy plate that mounts between the TB and snout. A nozzle like above would suffice. All of the other "extras" are not included in that basic kit. Big question is why for N20...if you car is pullied up with heads/cam you should be low 10s worst case scenario. So, you really need an extra 100hp at that point...maybe. If I was trying to achieve a few extra mph for a mile run, this may be a valid mod.

trackman is dead right. i have the nitrous warehouse kit from hell. it cost 4,500 in the end. now i bought two of some items because i have the dual bottles/billet brackets and the kitchen sink. this kit is awesome and makes super power safe. torq speed lab out of miramar fl did the install and they did an excellent job on the install and tuning of the car on nitrous. off nitrous with the big injectors is another story. anyway everything is hidden and i'm using a 100 shot only. car has a k&n drop in filter and a 2.55 upper pulley with the 100 shot it made 600rwhp and 650rwtq through an a6 on a mustang dyno on a conservative/safe tune. to sum it up.....it rocks
