Zex Nitrous Safe shot

Anyone heard of this Safe Shot "cheater" system thats made by zex. Is around $300 and it states its aROUND A 15-35 shot. Does anyone have this installed or had any thoughts of it, planning on putting it on the stock engine or putting it together once lingenfelter comes out with thier v6 supercharger, any thoughts?

Lol once Lingenfelter comes out with their SC? I don't think anyone really still believes thats happening.

It would be a nice way to cool the intake charge but the water/meth injection does a better job at it.
My advice if you're waiting on Lingenfelter is give them a call and see where they're at.

i spoke with lingenfelter already, they are in the works, i think right now thier making sure about its durability and making sure they dont need any more tweaks. so hopefully soon, they just want it to be right

I take it the safe shot is just nitrous? (no fuel). You may want to check out nitrousoutlet.com. They have a wet system for about $450 good for up to a 50 or 75 shot with no tune. I think you have to call them to get the V6 specific unit.

Yeah zex says up to 55. I think 75 is fine but dont sue me on it.

Scrmng says you can use the system with CO2 for cooling if you go FI so it is still useful.

ive been reading that some people change timing or something, is that necessary?.. and about usuing CO2 if i go FI, does that mean just filling the tank with co2 instead of no2?

no timing change needed for 75 or less. Thats how I understood the CO2 thing. Maybe Scrm will chime in.

Yes, in theory they say you can run a 75 shot without a tune... HOWEVER I strongly suggest that the first time you spray you have the car on the dyno and make sure you have a good A/F! Also you will be wanted to run the highest octane gas you can find!

As for the CO2... yes, once you go FI you can get a CO2 spray bar for your intercooler and then just fill your N20 bottle with CO2...

well im just going to run a 55 shot or so, dont want anymore and make things complicated, then when i go FI, i'll get a spray bar like you said for the intercooler, sounds awesome.. other then the regular standard kit for NO2, what else do you guys suggest, bottle heater etc?

Just go with the 75 to 175 shot by ZEX. I am using it and I am happy with it. Im just using the 75 shot right now but it seems to be working perfect and easy install.700$

The zex V6 kit is 55-100 shot. Less cylinders and more compression.

sorry to revive an old thread but did you end up getting the 55 shot? I'm in a similar predicament... Don't want to have to get a tune/worry about over-stressing my engine, but still want to say I have nitrous lol.

there are a few people running nitrous i have heard of doing as much as a 100 shot with out a tune.....i wouldnt do that much but it has been done you will be fine with a 55 shot and you should still be fine with a 75 shot but as stated above make sure you are on a dyno the first time you spray to make sure everything is working right and you have good A/F

50 shot is fine as long as you make sure your intake is all sealed up and you arent running lean.
