Very helpful information.....thanks Viney...

What is your set up and how long have you been running on nitrous??

Is there a need to also upgrade the injectors??

Peace.......

Nitrous express, since about 2 months after I bought the car, so about 14 months now. No, the injecters are fine if you go with a wet setup, which is what I reccomend, the injecters don't even know the nitrous is there, it supplies its own fuel!

I do most of my business locally with Westminster speed and sound, in westminster, md....where I live, nice guys...As far as web stuff New edge performance and MAD performance both seem to have it together. I have talked to these two at a personal level and like what they have to say.

thanks viney, i just have one more question. as long as the arming switch is on and my bottle is open and i have it floored i will be using nitrous? Or will it just spray a certain amount that time (say 50 hp if thats what i have on) until i shift and floor it again or flick the switch?
I think if i am going to get nitrous i might as well be as safe as possible so i guess im going to get: fuel pressure safety switch, RPM switch, tach signal generator, fuel rail adapter, and nitrous pressure gauge. Oh and my car didnt come with a tach and i bought an after market one and had it wired up. whatever RPM i am at, it read half exactly. So with the tach signal generator will my tach work properly? I guess I am going to check new edge and mad for these parts. I really appreciate the help viney.

The tach signal generator will fix the problem with your aftermarket tach.

I think you can get them from the ford dealer, otherwise, just look online. I know I've seen them at a few sites.
