I have never had the bottle pressure to high in the summer, the bottle heater gets HOT!...The summer you usually do not need the heater, but don't worry you are safe..

The bottle prressure is 950 std. 1200 is max. The bottle is rated safe to 1800psi, which the blow rating on the bottle is twice that at 3600PSI. and there is a blow pff cap that lets go at 3,000 built into every bottle. I have never seen the bottle in my car above 1050 due to ambient heat.

I run a .055 gap with the screamin demon coil pack and SD wires and have no issues with a 50 shot. The stock coil is also quite good.

Man, I thought nitrous was supposed to be cheap. Been lurking on prices, and a basic 4-cylinder direct-port setup from NX is $800, and an extra $400 for the extras not included, like blowoff, fuel cut, NHRA pipe, etc...

Could one piece together parts to save some coin, or are kits usually the better buy?

Kits are def. the better buy as the parts are all VERY pricey. Yeah, nitrous CAN be done on the cheap, but to do it right costs $$$$$. I have between 1100 and 1200 in my set up. If you need a remote bottle opener I have a spare one New in the package I can sell you, otherwise I'm using everything else.

Hmm. Things keep adding up, even in my wish list.

For the things I'd like to do, it seems I see a lot of suggestions for an inline fuel pump for something like a 100 direct port. Is that really needed on a Focus, and if so, how hard is it?

(I'm sure its been asked before, but this thread got long)

Not sure if the stock fuel pump can support that or not. I would guess not.

Its not really that hard, you have to run switched 12v to your new fuel pump and supply it with fuel. We had to do it all the time with carbed motorcycles, so its not terrible, but it is more work. If you call the NX tech guys they can lay the whole procedure out to you, and tell you what you need to buy.

I just thought of it, if you have to put a seperate bung in the tank to pull the fuel, that will be a PITA, but I"ve done that before ,too. But it means dropping the tank and doing it. Call the NX tech guys, they may know, or you could do a small seperate fuel cell as well, and draw from that. That may be easier.

Yea, I was wondering how a second pump would work with a factory in-tank pump. Wasn't sure if it needed a second line or not.

I know they work well for the guys with blown cobras that up the stock output. If it can be used for a focus ( and it should be ) it may supply enough fuel for a direct port hit. If you run a fuel safety switch ( I recomend it ) you will know if the stock pump falls short. The SVT pump is great, not sure if it works on the dura.

That kit is fine to start with. You may want to add a bottle heater, and a fuel pressure switch if that kit doesn't come with one... Jet it one fuel jet size rich on the fuel, and start at the 55HP hit. Also go a step colder on the plugs. I don't have any experience spraying an svt, but you may need a tune as well if you want to go to a 75 shot. The SVT seems to be a bit pickier on the tune than the regular zetec.
I would contact Tom at focus-power.com about the need for a tune for your svt.
Any questions just ask.
