This question may sound very gay...

Ok, this may be a really lame question but I have to ask it anyways even if people call me an idiot afterward. So here it goes,

Do you have to hook a Nitrous kit all the way up in order to get the purge to work, and if not, what all needs to be done to get the purge up and running?


So really, I ask this because I cant see myself using the nitrous for regular driving, and I really dont go to the track. So what I want it for is to purge it all the time and make people look at me. Call me lame or whatever, but I think its cool, and its funny when you do stuff like that and people who dont know what it is get strange looks on their faces. I laugh at that sort of stuff.

So yea, let me know.

And, if you feel the need to make fun of me and call me a poser, thats cool too. Im pretty easy going and I know its a funny thing to ask to begin with.

Thanks

No, you don't have to hook it up all the way.

^^^^^ Exactely. You only need the bottle and a purge kit... If you never intend to spray it for power you can even use CO2 instead of nitrous just for show, its cheaper to fill the bottle.

thats cool. That would be alot cheaper than the whole Show Kit. I found a link for the show kit and its like 300 bucks, so at least I think it would be cheaper. Any idea how hard of an install this would be? Probably pretty easy eh?

If you do get a show kit, definately go with CO2 because venting N2O is typically illegal (it's a NOX so you'll be contributing to that awesome smog you see all over the place). Besides, it makes no sense to buy nitrous just to vent it into the air! Also it sounds like you already realize this, but you'll take a lot of crap for ricing out a prefectly good SVT if you do this mod... try not to give us all a bad rep!

LOL Yea, im still debating this because I dont like ricers at all. I do however think the purge is cool, and like i said, I like messing with people so it would be perfect with my sense of humor. Make no mistake however, I am very proud of my SVT and I do not want to soil its name or the names of others that own them. I have loved ford and SVT since a I was little and my dream is to get myself a Sonic blue Lightning and a sonic blue Cobra before I die so I can have myself a little sonic blue family. So yea. Ok I just went on a tangent. Sorry lol.


Oh BTW, yes, you can get the colored purge like in fast and the furious.,
