What should I go with?

Ok, so I plan to add a small shot to the daily for a added kick. Not sure what kit to go with, so please post suggestions..


I'd like the car to go 13.8 or so, around there. Not terribly fast but decently quick. I have a few idea's on what I'll need (window switch, WOT switch, remote bottle opener, ect)

Basically I'm just wondering how I should go about this.

you dont need a remote opener. you do want a fuel pressure safety switch.

ive always been impressed by the wet kits from NX. ive used compucar's kit and ran a 12.9 on a 90 shot.

Well I guess I can do that initially. Then add the opener if I really want it. I was thinking like a 100 wet shot. Does that sound good on a all-stock car/fuel system? or is too much? Like I said, just trying to make it a fun DD, but with a little added power.

I kinda found the spot I want for the pressure gauge and main armed switch I'd mount them in the center concole, forward of the shifter.

With a 100 shot, I wouldn't feel that comfortable unless I had a bigger fuel pump, but that's just me.

Make sure you run a colder plug and gap them down. I would run an NGK TR6 gapped at about .035"

I'd at least do a fuel pump, no worries on that. Ok thank's for the plug suggestion.. Now on the kit, I've been leaning towards NX.. Would this work? Where would I mount the nozzle? Would the plate system be better?

mount the nozzle in your intake tube before your throttle body.

basicly you want the gauge and the bottle heater. cant go wrong with the purge kit either.

heater to keep pressure even, gauge to moniter it duhh, and purge to make sure you have n2o at the nozzle not just halfway in the line.

n2o filter, not sure if nx includes one but its good insurance. keeps crap out of the nozzle.

I was looking at that too, ok add that in. So for right around $1300 it'd be a safe/reliable setup. Then I'll need the tune/xcal and the fuel pump. So total should be under $2000, depending on who/how much the tune runs.

Well I saw "SVO" blowers, are those the only ones? I know vortech doesn't offer anything for the thunderbirds. Not sure about procharger.
