Ok, this may be a really lame question but I have to ask it anyways even if people call me an idiot afterward. So here it goes,

Do you have to hook a Nitrous kit all the way up in order to get the purge to work, and if not, what all needs to be done to get the purge up and running?


So really, I ask this because I cant see myself using the nitrous for regular driving, and I really dont go to the track. So what I want it for is to purge it all the time and make people look at me. Call me lame or whatever, but I think its cool, and its funny when you do stuff like that and people who dont know what it is get strange looks on their faces. I laugh at that sort of stuff.

So yea, let me know.

And, if you feel the need to make fun of me and call me a poser, thats cool too. Im pretty easy going and I know its a funny thing to ask to begin with.

Thanks[thumb]

^^^^^ Exactely. You only need the bottle and a purge kit... If you never intend to spray it for power you can even use CO2 instead of nitrous just for show, its cheaper to fill the bottle.

thats cool. That would be alot cheaper than the whole Show Kit. I found a link for the show kit and its like 300 bucks, so at least I think it would be cheaper. Any idea how hard of an install this would be? Probably pretty easy eh?

If you do get a show kit, definately go with CO2 because venting N2O is typically illegal (it's a NOX so you'll be contributing to that awesome smog you see all over the place). Besides, it makes no sense to buy nitrous just to vent it into the air! Also it sounds like you already realize this, but you'll take a lot of crap for ricing out a prefectly good SVT if you do this mod... try not to give us all a bad rep!

LOL Yea, im still debating this because I dont like ricers at all. I do however think the purge is cool, and like i said, I like messing with people so it would be perfect with my sense of humor. Make no mistake however, I am very proud of my SVT and I do not want to soil its name or the names of others that own them. I have loved ford and SVT since a I was little and my dream is to get myself a Sonic blue Lightning and a sonic blue Cobra before I die so I can have myself a little sonic blue family. So yea. Ok I just went on a tangent. Sorry lol.


Oh BTW, yes, you can get the colored purge like in fast and the furious.,

oh yea, almost forgot, thats a good idea with the co2 instead of nitrous. Im not a hippie, but I dont want to go around blowing up the ozone either, and cheap is good especially with gas prices at 1million dollars a gallon.

Yeah you buy little nozzles that have LEDs built into them.

The question isn't gay, but if you were to execute it....that would be gay. IMO, that's on the level with the fake blow off valve thingy they sell for the "turbo sound".

To each his own though....but who's gonna laugh when you get dusted after messing with the imports with your non-existant nitrous? ;-)

if you were going to set up a spray show for $300 why not just spend the extra 200 and get the whole set, just put in the 35hp nozzles

I think it's hilarious that there are actually kits out there specifically for pretending you have nitrous - I guess it shouldn't be that much of a surprise, but all the same, I was totally unaware of such a thing until reading this thread.

^^^^^^^^^

Ditto here... when I saw the Purge Kit for sale in the BST.. I thought someone was practicaly GIVING a nitrous kit away for the price listed....

.....then I found out about the 'Purge Kit: For Show Only'.... don't really know what to think of it.

UWSP_SVT... Does that stand for University of Wisconsin Stevens Point?
