2.3 Nitrous??

I have done a extensive amount of research and have found very little info on how to do a nitrous system on a 2.3 (2004). I know some of the saleen focus's were 2.3 but im not sellin my foci and buying a saleen. i want to add a nitrous system to my car. I have found only one person so far that has sprayed his 2.3 but doesnt tell how, just what kit he used. plus i cant ask him how since he hasnt been online for over a year.

Also what would be a good kit to use, i want a wet system. and i know this is kind of a basic question but do nitrous companies make kits for our specific car or are all the kits sort of universal.


I have read that there might be some issue with puddling due to tumble flaps and that nozzle location is crucial. Were would be a good idea to locate the nozzles? basically, im hoping that someone can help me and point me in the right track and hopefully a nitrous powered foci.

Thanks for the help

Talk to Bwinklesas (Brian) in the South Eastern/ Florida forums. He just installed a NX wet system (50 shot) in his 04 Duratec. The car is running very strong. I would tell you to that the NOS and NX kits are very good kits. I have used them both. I dont know what your budget is, but I can give you a list of things to get started:

N2O wet kit (NX or NOS) Your choice
Bottle warmer
N2O Guage
MSD Window switch (Set at no less than 3K)
Fuel cutt off switch
Colder plugs (Copper)

As far as nozzle placement talk to Bwinklesas and see where he placed it, but in all cases it should be between throttle body and MAF. I have mine about 6 inches from TB. As far as puddleing, some people spray their cars at WOT but the car is still at low RPM's causing some puddling and backfire. The RPM window switch will not let the system activate unless the engine is at the set RPM on the window switch even at WOT. I have mine set at 3000 RPM. Hope this helps out.
