What I meant by changing the shift point in the tune was, if you set it so that it will not shift before 5500 or so, then you wont have problems with it going into another gear because of wheelspin.

it shifts way after^^^ you said "so it won't shift before 5500 rpm, it doesn't now, it shifts at 7250, the N2O won't spray during gear changes with an auto then it sprays again as soon as the gear is engaged and then I get wheel spin at the begining of the gear.

ah ok i must have misunderstood something, I thought you said you were having problems with it going into 3rd because the wheels are spinning too much, simple solution is raise the shift point.

I had a tune that raised the shift points higher for my N/A work and higher octane fuel, it used to rev to well over what it does now but how healthy can that be for a stock block.

ZEX.COM its a universal wet kit I believe, the bottle warmer, and window switch are extras. The TPS switch will come with your system, it activates the N2O as WOT ONLY! So you can run it and throw the switch, as long as the pedal is to the floor it will spray instantly and click woosh vvroomm your gone. or for noramal street you can just set it to go aat wot and you'll learn your power band real well so it only sprays when you want it. Its a tru WOT sensor in the fact it has to be to the floor and then some.

The window switch lets you select a rpm band that it will activate at as well as end at. You can also buy a progressive (the shizzle) switch that pulses the spray according to rpms and will ramp your N2O spray with the rpms, and that is PRO style baby!!!

Billy, I'm jealous. But I will be getting nitrous.. sometime this summer.

I've been doing a little bit of reading on nitrous, switches, etc. Came up with the info that 2500-3k rpms is good place to start the spray, and about 500rpms before your shift point is a good place to turn it off. I'll try to find the source of that info for you.

Yes, that's in the plans as well. Too easy.

How much have you dropped in total on your nitrous setup? You consider it money well spent?

**looks up progressive switches**

Very well spent. Before I was a mid to low 17's car, now I'm mid to low fifteens and the window switch should drop another half to 3/4 second cause I can put it to the ground now.

Total cost is at about 600 so far not counting filling the bottle twice.

I look forward to the 75 or 100 shot the zex rep suggested next track day now that I have the traction control hooked up
