Nitrous Kit Choicesviney266

I would like to start by thanking viney266 for your input on nitrous and to clarify that the zex kits for the focus are wet kits. I have researched many different companies and basically narrowed it down to the Nitrous Express Ford Focus EFI kit or the Zex Ford Wet Nitrous Kit. I really like the the Zex kit, but have one concern.....the timing. It says that I need to retard my timing 2 degrees to utilize the 65 shot. How do I go about this? Also, if you have any other ideas on what nitrous systems are good out there, please let me know. Thanks for your time.

The Nitrous Works kit is a great kit (wet kit)

As for timing about any of the chip tuners can take out 2 Deg of timing for Nitrous

I didn't pull any timing with a 50 shot, but I run 93 octane all the time in the car. Thanks man.
Speed is only a matter of money; how fast do you want to go?

Nitrous Express and ZEX are both TOP quaility kit. Either choice would be a good one.

run 93 oct and you shouldnt have any problems with the timing. but for a bit more insurance id retard it
