go to radio shack and get a splitter.

we got a splitter but still havent gotten a chance to g-tech it. we went to the track friday night and he pulled up to the staging lanes and tech'd in. we were gonna try a motor pull first just to see how much the mod's helped him so he pulled thru the burnout box and spun the new bfg's over a time or 2 to warm them up a bit. after staging he turned the engine about 3300 and dumped the clutch. the car bogged! the bfg's didnt even break loose! after the hesitation the engine cought up and the car took off. he went thru the traps at 67mph and went 10.29 with a 2.3 60'. so he gained 2 mph and a 10th with a gay 2.3 60'. so he pulls back into the staging lanes getting ready to make a nitrous pass and the damn bottom falls out of the sky. it monsooned out of nowhere. it was only supposed to be like a 30% chance too. we were pissed. so the nitrous bottle is still full. anyway were pretty confident that in cooler weather dumping the clutch about 4500 rpm's it should pull a 1.9 to 2.0 60' and run a 10.00 or maybe even hopefully a 9.9x. it has plenty of mph to run in the 9's all he needs is to get that thing to 60' like a mug.

here is the link to the compucar nitrous in a bag kit: http://www.compucarnitrous.com/index...kits&Itemid=66

I would want a wet kit or direct kit, although, that does look like a really nice basic setup!!!

why so your nitrous puddles up in your intake manifold and explodes and destroys the mafs and tubing? only way to do a wet kit is direct port other than that go dry.
