People keep saying it's come a long way, but they still keep grenading their engines.

You run what you want, but I'll never touch the N2O.

I am having RDP Motorsports put the Zex system in, these guys really know what they are doing.

Still wondering where you guys put your purge nozzle if you have one. Also is there any sound difference when the nitrous kicks in? I am curious how I would know when the engine is getting nitrous? Do you really have to push the gas pedal all the way to the floor for it to activate, or will it activate before that point.

You should be able to feel it and you'll def be able to see it in your logs. Yes, gas pedal to the floor to achieve max value in the ECM. You can stick the purge anywhere you'd like.

thats why they make diff stuff. 1.5 shutdown must be a shitty track for a backfire clean up. i see blower cars blowing oil out all the time down the track . but oh well thats part of racing if u dont like track clean ups then might not want to go to the track cause its almost a fact that theres at least 1 every night.

That's to clean all the oil and engine parts off the track. Like I said. Grenaded.

$700 N2O kit = -$8000 engine.

these cars can EASILY handle 100-125 shot as they roll off the showroom floor, on the L99s, you are going to want to go to the LS7 lifters for a 150+ shot and stay in that range(175 at the most) on the stock internals, but I wouldn't spray a 175 shot as it, lol

personally, i'd probably do the Ls7 lifters and a 125 as a safety precaution... its all in the tune and your setup... you can have a 5th gen on nitrous for $650... or you can do it right and its going to cost about $1800... your choice, your car... the problem is the guys with the $650 kits that blow shit up and give it a bad name... the people like my best friend who took a bone stock Ls1 Z28 and sprayed a 125 shot from 2200 miles all the way to about 156,000 miles(and through two 4L60es, lmao), no one mentions them....

I had my engine tuned at the same place that is installing the nitrous, will the car need to be tuned again when adding nitrous?

The system is going to cost around $1100, which included the nitrous system, 10lb canister, and the purge option. I don't drive the car in the winter and it's not a DD so would I need a pressure system? Is a 10lb canister the right size? How much do they cost to get refilled?

You guys are worrying me a little with this blowing up stuff.

10# bottle is fine. You don't need a 15.

In CT nitrous is $7 a pound. You may be able to get it cheaper but that's what it costs me. It would be wise to check everything on the dyno while spraying to check afr's and fuel pressure, etc.

What the pressure system you're referring to?

I have been wanting to do mine like that. Looks bad a$$.
As for now, the purge tube goes straight down into a hole for the engine cradle/crossmember. Stealthy, excecpt for the sound during the purge.
