Mine is somewhat hidden. It is mounted under my mustang airbox/maf set up and all my braided line from the rear to the control box is covered in that black wire wrap stuff. If you simply pop the hood and not knowing what you're looking for, you'd almost never notice it. The bottle however is mounted in the trunk out in the open space.

I think the VP has a nice little "stealthy" Bat Gas setup in his Cougar.

Yeah, no one has ever really asked me to open my trunk, and most of the other t bird guys at the track know i'm running nitrous. Sometimes I will wrap a large winter coat over the bottle to keep it warm when i'm running (along with the heater) and that kind of hides that as well.

Here is mine and it really is a hidden system that took a lot of work to make happen.





The nozzle below is hidden by a split piece of hose and the lines run inside the fender behind the plastic and come back into the engine compartment under the nitrous box.

the other night man, on a transam, I dont know how they found it. The guy had gutted beneath the speaker panel on the right side... his bottle was about a foot lower than the speaker. It was nuts, i couldnt see under the hood there were too many people but im sure he had the parts hidden too. It was crazy.

like i said, serious street racers know each type of car and know the hiding spots for bottles, selonoids etc. you cant hide it from a good racer.

me, hell the bottle is in the trunk, selonoids are behind the intake whats the big deal.

Real racers dont care if its hidden or not. Street racers are just that. Too scared to run on the track where you will find out how slow they are. I like the clean factor of it being hidden. You dont clutter up the engine bay.

Now I've heard of off-roading guys using their cage for an air tank for their lockers but that is . . . different.
