you can use a basic LS1 kit with a "shark" nozzle (n20/fuel) with 100hp or 150hp pills to wake up the LSA. It is very easy to install and an extravagant system like above is not necessary unless you want to get really serious. Here is a pic of a nozzle that can be simply plumbed into the air intake.

cool. Inexpensive, and cools the rotors too.

yes..you need to pull timing..how much is dependent on how big of a shot.

Really? I was under the impression that those nozzles were flow matched for proper mixture so long as fuel and bottle pressures were within specs.

most tuners definitely rx pulling some timing when spraying n20. Small shot of 75hp is probably no big deal. 100hp and up may be a problem without retarding the timing a few degrees.

So what parts would be necessary to acheive this inexpensive nitrous set up? I can't seem to find any info on such a basic set up. It sounds like a good idea but I don't know anything about it. can an amateur install it properly?

Just about all the nitrous kits say easy install. From what I have been learning and reading this is the farthest thing from the truth. To do it SAFELY and effectively it takes days of wiring (to do it right) and plenty of tuning skill.

days of wiring...both solenoids are wired together so they are enabled at the same time. Use a swtched 12v source for the power. The black wires both go to ground. You can add a toggle for an arming switch and a push button for the "spray" button. Of course you could add a 5v reference WOT switch and pressure gauge if desired. Took about an hour.

you could add a "window swtich" which is made by MSD that will not allow the circuit to power until a certain rpm and limit rpm by means of rpm pills.

And..... if you want to do it right

window switch
progressive controller
bottle heater
low fuel pressure safety shutdown
dedicated fuel pump or upgraded fuel system
maybe some gauges and bottle opener
relays and fuse panel

I see a few days there once you build a relay panel and switch console.
