Emailed Edelbrock about their dry nitrous kit.

Basically I told them that people blow Zetec's all to hell because of dry nitrous systems. They simply don't understand that spraying through the MAF will not work and that the Zetec cars don't have a return style fuel system. Their reply was:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Blane,



We have done many Dyno Pulls on our 2001 Focus with the Ztec motor with no problems using the Nitrous kit. With the 70408 kit the directions state to place the nitrous nozzle in the air box directed at the MAF sensor. When the nitrous is activated it will cool down the MAF sensor and the computer will add fuel to compensate for the Nitrous. .

I sent a reply asking for the dyno sheets with A/F ratios. No response yet.


I sprayed a 35 dry shot on the fofo when I first got it and could immediately hear it detonating. I was spraying through the MAF as Chris stated above.

I think they should take it off of their site and out of their parts catalog. If people buy it they'll blow their engines.

I guess we can wait to see what their dyno's and a/f mixtures say.

I could be wrong, but I didnt think you could use dry nitrous on a non tpi type fuel injected car.

It's kinda like putting a turbo or supercharger on and not getting a tune. Just wait and it'll blow up.

really? it blows up? I honestly didn't know that. I thought A turbo just spools up freely and you hope ur pointed in a straight line when the boost kicks in.

TELL ME MORE?

If you don't have the proper tune you will detonate. Detonation is bad, mkay? lol

Here's what Edelbrock just sent me:

Focus.pdf

and

Dyno spreadsheet



Somehow I don't think it works that well. When I hit it with the dry 35 shot and detonated I didn't feel ANY extra power, but when I hit it with the wet 55 shot I couldn't stop spinning.

Somehow I think they're mixing up dyno sheets and kits, unless they tuned the focus for a dry shot. If they tuned it then they should say "hey, we got our car tuned to work with the dry shot. don't run this without a tune!"

Then you'd need to adjust the jets in the carb(s) appropriately.
