all this stuff is confusing me.


i have a just intake and exaust i wanna put a 75 what else do i need thay wont ome wit ha nx kit.

my friend is really expeirenced with spray i think hes got like a 300 shot on his race car right now.

and ive always heard whether you have a 35 or 75 shot you need to retard the timing is that true? and wouldnt a chip do that for you instantly retard the timing when you spray and actually advance when you are running all motor.

With a 50 shot, no need to pull timing with premium gas in the car.,with a 75...maybe pull 2 degrees and colder plugs as well.. Try the 50 first and see if it isn't enough for you, get a bottle heater and it will be. Keeping consistant bottle pressure is the trick to a good clean hard hit from nitrous.

Are the bottle heaters dangerous? I will be installing a ZEX wet kit eventually (november or december) but the whole heating the bottle in my trunk worries me... Any chance of over heating and causing a fire? What precautions should I take for a heater if any? Is there any specific route you yould recomend running the lines for safety?

As long as the bottle pressure doesn't exceed the bottle's max psi, everything should be good. Then the valve should open up to relieve pressure. As for fires, my friend has been using a bottle heater in every single one of his cars for years and hasn't had a single problem with them. You could also get a bottle blanket, which is pretty much what I have. I put the blanket in the floorboard with the heater on high, let it warm up, then put it around the bottle.. the pressure goes up some, but not as much as what could be done with the bottle warmer.

As above ^^^^ the bottle heaters are very safe. They are not cheap, and the shut off before they over pressurize anything...Also here is a list of facts most do not know

1. Nitrous is best used at 950 PSI
2. The bottle is rated at 1800 PSI
3. The blow off valve on the bottle is rated at 3,000 PSI
4. The bottle burst strength is 3600 PSI.

So as you see at 950 PSI we are operating in the safe limits of what we are using, still at 950 PSI it should be respected , but it is SAFE... Oh yeah, one more fact.. nitrous is an oxidizer , but it is NON-FLAMABLE

I know its non flamable, I was just worried about the heater causing a fire with the trunk liner. It all sounds good... thanks again.

A logical question..I wasn't trying to be mean with the flammable comment, alot of folks don't know that.. To answer your question... The heater does get pretty hoy, to hot to touch at times...I would not mount it where it came in contact with a trunk liner or anything, just give it a little air space and you should be fine, but yeah, it gets pretty hot..

Sweet... I can't wait for the first to come around... I hope to have the kit by december at the latest. I will buy the kit first then I'll start with the accessories... heater and remote opener are first on my list along with a Fuel pressure switch. I will PM you with more Q's as I get closer to the install. Thanks.
