Nitrous help

I'm looking at the possibility of putting nitrous on the car and know a few have done it. I was hoping the following could be put together for me and anyone who follows.

1. I'd heard the jets put together in the Zex kit are off. What should the combos be? Have they gotten better with the kit?

2. What are the correct spark plugs for running nitrous?

3. What levels are safe without a tune, and when are we at the point a tune is needed.

The performance some of you have gotten with it is really impressive and it's starting to cool down slightly so I want to get it together and get to the track.

Thanks.

1. Yup jets are off and not sure if they fixed it. Doubt they have. 55 shot = 17 fuel/36 nitrous 75 shot=19f/42n 100 shot=21f/46n 125 shot=24f/52n 150 shot= 27f/58n

2. Spark plugs are already a cold 6 so I went one colder (7). They are NKG LTR7IX-11

3. Zex claims 55 shot is safe without a tune but no more. Max ran his at the track and ran several dynos without a tune using a 100 shot. My guess is a 75 should be fine but its only a guess based on my own experience. Any more than that and you better get tuned.

The best person to ask for general advice is Scrmng. He has alot of experience with Zex nitrous.

Oh and by the way. The only thing that affects nitrous is humidity so, DA won't mean squat runnin it! As scrmng says, "it makes its own environment".

Thanks. After the headers go on this next week I am putting this on the short list, but I am looking at NX as well as a few others.

Actually talking to someone about getting the NX kit for $650-ish shipped and if NX will only still give me the $50 August rebate I'll be ordering soon.
It just seems from the write-up that Zex had issues with jet-sizes and quality of parts, so I'm looking in other directions. Plus, NX is a company right here in TX so maybe I'll get a TX-boy deal if I promise a write-up.

Does that kit come with a throttle position sensor?

I pulled the trigger on an NX kit. $445 shipped but have to order the TPS switch and it's another $76-ish.

I have an STS kit coming. Will dyno the car before installation, get some drag strip times and then do the same after. Next week is the finals for the street tire shootout. If I can't make that then test and tune after.
Hope to get it all done before the snow gets here. Michigan you never know.
I have a second kit available.

Now that is weird, how did I get in on a Nitrous posting, when I was on the turbo pages? How did that happen? And I didn't start up the post. ...

Brother, I wasn't going to ask. I was going to say good for you, though. STS makes nice stuff.

The headers were due in yesterday. Somehow Fedex lost them(I don't know if they ever picked them up according to their tracking).

Kit is due in the 13th.

Rod,
I had been wanting to avoid the big$ tune as I don't see much gains, but I have talked to someone in Austin that is a Trifecta vendor and he's willing to cut me a deal. It'll be worth the peace of mind to not have to worry about the nitrous on the stock tune. Tell me how you swap your NA tune for the nitrous tune? Is there a cable out there that I can just upload the tunes onto my laptop and swap out at the track? Thanks again for all the help

Yep, there is a cable you need to swap back and forth. And a software download.

Now I've got to get the giggle juice!

Awesome!! You will get the obd2 cable in the mail. At the same time they will send you the initial software via email as well as your initial tunes based on your mods and requests. Its a little confusing at first but just post up rather than struggle since lotsa guys here have alot more experience with it than I do. When you switch tunes, you dont have to remove the tune thats in there, it just overwrites it so you just load the tune from your lap top and it takes about 4-5 minutes on an average comp. The trani tunes only take a couple minuted to load. Thats all there is to it.

6-spd standard.

Pray for my clutch.

I'm looking at possibly running at the local track this weekend, if it still isn't under water and depending on if it took any damage. So far the car has a CAI, 2 1/2" x-pipe/catback, will be getting the drag radials tossed on, and that's it. The ported intake manifold and throttle body isn't ready yet. The headers were lost by Fedex, and the kit is scheduled for delivery the 13th.

Okay, got the kit today. Where did you guys tap into the fuel? Do these have a schrader valve?
Are there any pics out there?

with the Zex I believe you splice into the low pressure fuel line... The fuel rail is crazy high PSI...

The ZEX kit says to tap into the fuel line on the right hand side of the intake.after I spoke to zex and told them my concerns about using a rubber fuel line and hose clamps he told me to go and tap into the schrader valve this is located at the top back of the motor if you need some pictures let me know.

Okay, where is the low-pressure fuel-line located? I see 2 lines on the passenger side of the engine and it would be an ideal location to put the adapter from NX, just need to know if that's before the pressure gets increased.

Sorry, didn't see the replies.

I found the schrader valve. Is it before the pressure is increased or after?
