I'm guessing that the unit your getting has the TPS so is this a spec item for SVT usuage?
The ZEX unit will NOT fire during a shift in my car because the voltage at the TPS drops below WOT so it automatically deactivates the system then reactivates once the shift is complete.

I may need an extention for the nitrous lines...the bottle will be in the spare tire well....you should be good, mine sits back there and I have a ZX4 and there is one loop of slack.

Did you get a bottle opener-no and will get one Check with your state laws first, in my state they are illegal if you get pulled over and have an auto opener and the bottle is full they can confiscate your vehicle for inspection.
bottle heater- no and will get one...:::> http://www.dynotunenitrous.com/store...?idcategory=15

any cool gauges-no, gonna keep it stealthy...maybe one EGT, or a scan gauge. I will if I HAVE to....you can do a single gauge/controller or a 2 pod with 007 & 705... http://www.dynotunenitrous.com/store...idcategory=116

want to buy a:
progressive controller- for???>> http://www.nitrousexpress.com/Pages/octaneseries.htm
window switch - thought it had that on the Zex....if not YES def. see above
2cnd bottle---nope...one is good right now...lol don't be so sure...

P.S. although those gauges are super sweet and TOTALLY fulfill my ADD needs () I will stick with autometer NV series so I match the dash. I already have 2 and they are dimmed to perfection

soo........

I looked up what else I want/need from Zex.com Looks Like about $600 total for the rest of the stuff....

-Bottle Warmer
-Window switch
-blowdown tube
-remote opener
-other little pieces I can't rember

so, thats about $925 (with $325 Zex kit) without tuning for a pimp setup. Approx. $1,300 for everything including tuning......now THAT is what I like to hear........

^^^^ Yeah, I have about 1100 -1200 in mine. Nobody believes it, but that is what it costs to do a good system.

.....so I guess I should buy all that shit now....huh........





OH!!!

question......when mounting the spray nozzle, I am guessing I need to get a piece of metal intake tubing to tap the holes to, instead of the stock rubber piece......I should be able to get some of that and my dad and I can fabb it up....I don't wanna lose the Volant, and I am not gonna pay $200 for an AEM to cut it up either....

and Tom was talking about a 180 Deg. Contour thermostat? is that a must?
