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'll second all the above....

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?

To be safe you dont want to spray under 3K. This is because it does put excessive load on the rotating assembly. Also the air flow does not have a lot of velocity. This causes the nitrous/fuel mixture to not be ingested completely. This is what causes nitrous back fires.

Window switches are one of, if not the biggest safety feature that you can add to a nitrous system

I don't and I leave like a school bus because of it or I would be spinning like mad, even without NO2. I believe the manual cars would hold up well since it has the stronger SS diff and axle shafts, I've seen plenty of SS's with DR's hold up. I might try some this spring. My 60' has never been below a 2, but I've trapped 105 to 106.5 spraying. With a good launch I should be in the 12's easily.

Couldn't agree more, I've seen a few intakes explode at the track, I consider a window switch or some controller a safety must.

Only spray when:

WOT
over 3k rpm
use a fuel pressure safety switch

Does anybody with this kit know if a window switch like this one can be added?

I really want to run a window switch to keep everything safe.
