where's your lines ran???

Hey guy's where did you run your NOS main feed line? Did you run it underneath the car and clamp it up or did you run it through the inside of the car and threw the firewall? also is it allowed (NHRA) to run it threw the inside of the car at the dragstrip?

I ran mine threw the car.
If you go through the firewall, go through a rubber gromet(I'm sure you know that)....for what its worth, Mine would pass tech at the track with it running through the firewall....but they(tech guys at the track) never really looked into it to much.

alright thank's man. I thought If it was underneath the car it would be easy to run and put that convolut over it and wrap that up.

Running it by the fuel lines seems to be a good idea, because then you can ziptie the N20 line to the fuel lines.

Ok what do you guy's think of this pop a hole and put a rubber grommet in the sheet metal of the tunk run the line down and all the way up. I can put that wire wrap stuff over the line and loom tape it so it stay's in and then I got some clamp's that go around the wire wrap and bolt underneath. What do you guy's think of that?

That's pretty much what I did...nitrous line runs up the driver's side of the car, and the wiring for the bottle heater runs along side it.

I'm gonna finish it Wednesday. I got a friend coming over that has installed a kit or 2 before to help me wire it. That WOT switch was a piece a cake to put in I didn't have to adjust it or anything. Either way it might be a minute before I get it retuned with a nos setting. all my extra money is going to Jurgen for a better set of rims and tires. Then I will get it tune and to the track at the first chance I get

how much NOS are you going to be throwing at it....remeber that timing will be needed to be retared 2.5 degrees for each 50hp shot of NOS , MSD makes a multistep retard box and you may want to invest into progressive NOS controler ( Jacoubs) the halfshafts cant take a 150 hp shock with out spitting out a mouth full of metal or get a MSD digital 6 ignigtion with build in NOS retarded

alright first thing to say for myself is that this nos thing is new to me.

that being out of the way, Can i just have the chip tuned to retard the timing 5 degrees without having it on the dyno? Im going with 100hp. Msd digital 6 what the heck does that do I will look it up on Summit.

alright reading the description on both of those to me it looks like they do the same thing the msd6 produces more of a spark for longer. the jacobs controlls the nos to go to a small shot to help move and get bigger down the track to really move. That about right?

also just another question if I have the chip done which I probably will when I go to the track should I flip to nos setting while im waiting to go on the track or right before I get to the staging light's? and when should I flip the setting back?

flip to NOS setting

you want to flip to nos setting in stagging lane in order to give the computer to recalibrate to new settings, and i would leave it until you are done racing......only thing that will happen is that the engine will be a little sluggish in NOS mode while not on the juice.


I am in the peocess of building a 1998 Cobra 4.6 with a 2000 LS1 T-56 running 2 stages of NOS in a 1995 LX, the biggest problem is getting it to hook up with out blowing the IRS apart, I was thing about puting in a new back subframe from a 1988 Turbo Coupe and running a solid axle from a 1988 turbocoupe, be cheaper than replacing halfshafts, I have 12 large size super coupe halfshafts in backup just in case.

ok so really when I get to the track hope to pass inspec. get to the staging lane flip to nos setting let it run to recalibrate. then before I head home flip it back and let it run to recalibrate to normal setting.
should I shut it off before I flip it?

since I don't want to start a new thread how do you think my tran's will hold up?
I have a shift kit put in and the Torque converter is a marauder convertor with a baloon plate. How do you think it will hold with a 100 shot off the line?

Your drivetrain with that set-up should be adequate. Once you get to substantial power levels and hooking real hard, be it NA or Nitrous, thats when you start hurting drivetrain parts.

I ran mine on a stock converter, 4.10 gears, SHift kit for years on a 125 dry shot with no problems. Later on, putting significantly more power to the ground, I've managed to lunch 2 trannies, couple of halfshafts, and even broke the side gear teeth out of an Auburn Unit. That usually is a result of a lot of torque, big tires and a lot of hook.

Several others on here have broken basically the same parts. Just some things to think about here.
************************************************** ***************

Jim Allen,

Are you sure that the SC halfshafts will fit in the Cobra? I know they are close length wise but I don't really know if anyone has used them. Also, just cause they are beefier between the joint and the Spline, does NOT help them when the go through the spindle. At that point they are the same diameter as all the others. They will break just as easily. You gain nothing by using them.

I know, I've used both and broken both.

Something to consider.

alright guy's I know I've been asking alot about this and I hope im not getting annoying but I got a few more question's

1. It has a compucar purge system. The purge button does the yellow wire go to 12V key on and the black wire to the purge solenoid?

2. As of right now I have no rpm window switch, now Im gonna run it this summer without it and get one during the winter. but my question here is if I arm it and go to WOT off the line do you think I will be fine and make it down the track? Or should I leave the arming switch off and after I get over like 3,000 rpm turn the switch on and go?

3. where should I mount the purge switch I really dislike putting hole's in my interior plastic. My switch box in the center console is full. I have 3 gauges where my ashtray use to be.

4. How do you know when your tank is empty? Only gauge on there is for psi.

5. Sorry for all the questions
