Ny-Trex v6 Camaro Kit

I'm highly contemplating a nitrous kit because other forms of FI are just not cutting it for me. So for anyone who has the ny-trex kit, could you post on your experiences with it? If you have a vararam, even better! Specifically, I'd like to know if the kit came with any safety items or if you had to buy them! And how you like the spray and how much you're running!

You know I am super happy with my Ny-Trex kit!!!!!!!!!

Running a 100 shot, purchased the bottle heater but haven't used it yet (tracks closed by me). Best run was 13.39 in August at Zmax with my stock 20" tires and no posi.

Is your car a daily driver? Do u run any safety features on it?

the standard kit comes with a fuel pressure switch and a WOT switch, I added the bottle heater and controller. I couldn't be more happy with it.

Car purchased 7/2009 and to date has 82,000 miles so a daily driver it is!!
I never really use the NOS on the street, just the track.

It uses the "Wide Open Throttle" switch and it also has a solenoid that cuts off NOS if fuel pressure is low (all that came with kit).

I started with the 50 shot on the track and now use the 100 shot (over 10 passes so far on 100 shot).

http://youtu.be/2k4rvTyqTJc - Here is a video of my last pass with the 100 shot @ Zmax

I don't, I have my controller set to 15 MPH, but I think automatics spray out of the gate.

If interested in our plates we have you covered as well with our hard lined system or soft braided line system. We can get you something from mild to wild.

Thing is I don't think a plate will work with the vararam.

yep, got the bottle heater and the remote opener too. the system comes standard with a purge which you need to use before AND after your run.

My last run at Zmax I sprayed as soon as the car got moving. Now with the drag radials I will be spraying right out of the hole.

we have a customer that has the vararam and our plate. It does take some trimming though.

No, I use the gas pedal throttle switch so as long as I am full throttle I have the juice flowing. I leave the line with the main switch off and as soon as I leave the trap I flip the main toggle switch on to activate the NOS.

I will eventually get a progressive switch to control the nos but not at this time.

I have the NYTREX kit with over 100 runs with the 100HP jets in mine. I'm 51 and have used many good nitrous kits over the years. This kit took me about 1.5 hours to have up and running. I did bypass the WOT switch and made a finger activated switch. You can PM me for more details. I'll give you my cell # if you want to talk in depth about this subject. There are many good systems out there, I just happened to buy the NYTREX because I saw them at SEMA in 2011 and they presented a very complete kit for the LFX.

What would a system like the ny-trex kit have in advantage over a kit like the zex kit?

Most of the kits out right now are good quality for the V-6, just see what extra items comes with the kit of your choice and warranty.
Pressure gauge
Purge solenoid
Plug & play harness, ( No cuttiing required )
Does it use ( + ) or ( - ) voltage to fire the solenoids. This is a debate issue for some. The newer cars use Ground signal ( - ) to control electronics in them, so you make your choice.
Lifetime warranty on solenoids
WOT = Wide open throttle switch ( I did bypass mine for a momentary switch )
Low fuel pressure cut-off ( kills trhe solenoids on low fuel pressure so you don't melt a piston or six.
The above is why I choose the Ny-trex kit, plus the fact that all solenoids ( including the purge ) are mounted on one block.
I am NOT bashing any other kit, this is just what I've bought and have had good, SAFE success with it.

I know the Ny-trex doesn't come with a window switch but do you know if maybe one will work with it? My dream setup would be one that I can choose when to spray like you have with the momentary switch but also have a set rpm where it cuts off by itself to not cause any damage. I'm really liking both the ny-trex and zex kits. Don't know what to do at the moment.

I think this link will answer your RPM trigger questions.

Thing is... that controller is 400 when a window switch like the one zex uses is 200. I would gladly get the ny trex one if I was going to use everything it can do but I just need a way to cut the nitrous off at certain rpms

The concern is spraying too low in the rpm range, I spray at 3k, the other feature I like about the nytrex controller is the logging, you can tell what's going on during your entire run. You can also hook a wideband O2 to it for more protection and the results are also logged. I'm sure a window switch can be used pretty easily if that's your choice.

Yea, I'm going to do a little more research on it.

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?
