I'm looking into buying a Zex Wet Kit for my 2000 ZX3. I know they sell them where the nitrous kicks in during WOT. Does anyone here have this kind of kit installed? I'm kinda newer to the whole nitrous thing, so i dont want to install it myself and have it detonate on me. How much do nitrous kits generally cost to install?

Also, I have a CAI, catback exhaust, shorty headers (soon to be 4-2-1 headers), and a chip. Could i run a 75 shot? or even a 50 shot with these mods?

so noone here knows about any of this???

alot of people have this installed and it would be my choice to have a wot switch. people say a 50 shot is safe enough, but a 75 is pushing it. your mods dont affect it because you didnt do anything to strngthen engine internals. use a 50 shot (wet), rpm window switch and wot switch, and ull be fine.

o ya and make sure u have a way of retarding the timing, whether it be a chip or high octane gas. Ditch the chip you already have too. it advances timing to make more power, thats not good for the happy gas.

i reprogrammed my chip so it doesnt advance the timing at all. i've heard of people running 55 shots without retarding the timing at all...even 75 shots. but thanks for the info, guess this isnt that "hott" of a topic here

im runnin a 75shot with no timing changes just copper plugs works nicely ive been thru 2 bottles on the 50 shot and 2 on the 75shot about to go fill up again...DO NOT PUT CHIT GAS IN IT! it will own you and ur wallet

how much are refills on the 75 shot??
09-03-2004, 06:31 PM
refills dont have anything to do with the shot, it all about the bottle size. and like the other person almost said. a way to retard ur timing is to put high octane fuel in when u spray. around here it is 3.99 a pound to fill.

yea im runnin a 10lb bottle cost me 40$ to fill

22.00 for a 10lb in o-town. def looking at getting the zex kit for my focus. so you guys think 55hp shot on high test gas with a colder plug will be fine? i don't have much timing options...
