You could try contacting Saleen... maybe they have some type of custom adaptor they could sell you, not only would it be a tested piece, but it'd also be kinda cool having a 'partial Saleen'

Yes, there is a fitting like that on the z-tecs, I'm not sure if the duratec has it or not. Just take a look at your fuel rail and see if there is a plate with 2 small bolts that comes off the end of the fuel rail.
If so, Mcnewsautomotive.com keeps them in stock.

I dont have a duratec but I have Zetec and I have the same kit. There is a special adapter that u will need. When I got my kit it didnt have the adapter in it. The good thing was that I bought the kit from Jegs. They called Nitrous Works and they made the fitting and sent it out. In short the adapter is suppose to be there but doesnt come in the kit. They ordered 2 kits to see if that was the case. Hope that helps

No tune needed with a wet nitrous kit. The "tune" is in the fuel and nitrous jets. It is a "stand-alone " system. If you are staying 50 HP or under, none is needed. If you are going with a bigger shot ( 75HP or above) I would see about getting a specific nitrous tune. If you have a tune or a "chip" in your car now, you should remove it to run nitrous.

Be careful though I ran a 100 shot on mine for awhile and I spun a rod bearing and blew the rings on it. The only thing u really need to do it make sure u use the right jets otherwise u will cause problems like to much nitrous or to much fuel or noit enough of either and thats when u come into ptroblems
