Another question if I may. What kind of window switch do you recommend. I was reffered to a MSD Digital. But I'm all about saving money so if there's something cheaper or if someone has a used one.....for under $100. I'll take it.

Just one more I promise. Can anyone tell me what this is. I tried to edit an arrow in there, but it didn't work. I'm asking about the thing on the left. Thanks.

^^Agreed, its a purge solenoid.. I have an older MSD window switch on mine that uses the pills for RPM, and it was about 60 bucks. If they are still around. It works fine, but I got it about 4 years ago.

They are still around. I think you can even pick one up at Autozone now.

I know, I know I'm a liar. Any tips on installing this.

I haven't seen anyone use a bracket, but then again I haven't seen anyone w/ pics of the WOT switch. It was the same price w/ the bracket than w/o so I got it. Does it go in the engine bay under the throttle cable assembly or under the gas pedal. Thanks for all your help guys, you've made my NOS upgrade easy as heck.

I plan on adding Nitrous to my 08' but I'm wondering what you guys think since it's an ATX..................

If everyone thinks that the tranny can handle it then I plan on going with a Zex wet kit.

By the way..........very helpful and informative post.

As far as running the 75 shot goes, I am now running into problems. The 50 shot will get me to the stripe almost as fast as the 75 so there is an unarguable change in fuel pressure. I will be ordering the inline pressure increaser from ZEX.
As far as the window switches go, I have a ZEX traction control unit that works great. You can skip gears, control when the spray starts and when it stops. I spray about 40 ft out of the tree and cut it at 50 rpms before the shift point for smoother shifts. And feel free to pm if you have any personal questions about my setup. I run slightly diffrent jet set up's than what they suggest for our cars.

Stock TB, or 65mm? I have pics of it mounted on both.. I"ll see if I can find them.
