Wet is the retard system right? You want the kind that only comes on when you turn it on.

you' should never have the tank near ya. lol

wet is safer, less chacne of detonation. (spelling)

dry makes alot of cars go boom.

reason why wet is nice because you tap a little bung on to your fuel rail and have a line run from there to a jet. and u also have a n20 jet. and then you have n20+gas+ engine=power. i only recomend a 55 shot. and there's no reatrd or timing adjsted needed.

someoen correct me if im wrong.

Shellshock, go here:

http://www.holley.com/HiOctn/TechSer...o/NOSTech.html

And read, read, read! It's a good idea to learn as much as possible about something like this before jumping into it. Please don't ever mount a nitrous tank inside the passenger compartment if you can avoid it. If it leaks you can become incapacitated...

Anyone seen Black Sheep?
Is the wet system also called the retard system?
