Talking I Am The Proud Owner Of A Zex Kit!

I just bought a Zex Dry Nitrous System with an Autometer Nitrous Gauge and bottle heater for 315.00 shipped!

I cannot wait..................I should have it in a week or so I imagine.

I will keep yall informed and I am sure I'll have PLENTY of questions once I get it in.

Thanks for everyone who helped me in my Nitrous endevors.

Dave

Is this a good idea for a custom nitrous switch panel, or has someone ever seen a more cool looking or efficient one?

Thanks

Where woudl you put it?
I just put all my switches in the center console (heater switch, nitrous master switch, chip switch, and purge button).

For a purge kit you may wanna look into this kit - http://www.speedshop.org/store/scrip...p?idproduct=24

I have one, and it worked great. I think I just blew a line so only air comes out now. I didn't use their tubing, and with what I used I think it's just a little weak. I do have some cooper tubing to put in, just need to quit being lazy.
Oh, and I got the dual outlet kit.

I didn't notice if you grabbed and RPM window switch, but those are a good idea. Or so I hear.

Not really needed for a dry kit. Pretty much neccesary for a wet kit unless you wanna end up like Joel or Keith

no a window switch is a good idea, you just set it to 1000 through revlimiter-200rpm. NO2+rev limiter =

check out New England Dyno's site for nitrous stuff. I got my purge kit for only $60 shipped. They also have tons of other stuff for cheap, and they are local.

I never said it was a bad idea. I just said it's not really needed, which is true.
Have a chip burned for nitrous, have the rev limiter set to around 6500, and you won't really need to worry.
Basically, if you don't have or wanna spend the money no you don't have to. You could always buy it later

Well, my nitrous has arrived, but now it looks like the tranny may be going, so I may have to wait a bit before I can send a bottle through it. But I will definetly still hook it up and have it ready to go.

Live a little Dave! Heck if the tranny is going anyway why not help it along. Fourth of July style.

That's fine I don't mind the wait. It's not going in for a couple months anyway. Have to build up other parts first.

Maybe he thinks you backed out? Never know
