Nitrous Questions!!!

Heres the deal, got a zex nitrous dry kit. Plan on running a 100shot. Were should I put the jet for Ideal performance on a 94 Thunderbird? Do I have to remove the plastic plenum thing? (Do I need to install a pipe from the tb to my intake?)
Help.

You can install the nozzel anywhere between about 2" -8" before the TB. It can be installed in the plastic intake tube but the tube must be removed so you can drill it out. Good luck.

Alright installed last night. Just installed a mandrel bent piece of 3" pipe in the place of the plastic plenum. Ran the jet about 4 1/2 inches from the tb. Tested it out last night with the 100jet. It kicks a$$. Smoked my buddies 5.0. Curious to see what times im pullin at the track. Gonna swap out the 100jet for a 150.
Thanks for the help.

A 100hp shot may be ok but you are really pushing things with a 150 shot and you may find the stock fuel pump can't keep up. Past a 100 shot and you are playing with fire. You should also pull some timing out of the mix with a high shot and the rule is 2 degrees for every 50 hp shot. Good luck.

I agree with Mark on that!!

Anything over a 75 HP shot with a stock pump and you are pushing your luck.

Anything over a 100 shot especially on a high mileage engine and you are pushing you luck, especially if it hasn't been carefully maintained. Moderation is the key word here and enough tuning and fuel support for the system!!! Remember stock internals are weak, it could go at anytime at any level, including stock.

Just my 02. cents worth!!

stock internals arent as iffy as described.......but they dont really like the n2o as much as beefed up ones...id turn it down to 75 shot and think about fuel system and chip upgrade........you can have switchable chips that advance timing when your shooting the n2o......but the intake piece is a good bet and is a pickup for sure over the stock violin case......did u take off the air silencer to?

I am really going to have to warn you about jumping to a 150 shot. Not a good idea, especialy since you are running a dry kit. I suggest you get a bigger fuel pump, and gap your plugs to .035, and get 2 steps colder, auto-lite AR94 is what i run. I shoot 125 Hp in my engine, but mine is a wet fogger direct port system. I strees the importance of the colder plugs, re-gapping them, and a bigger fuel pump. These items may run a total of 250.00, but thats cheap in comparrison to a new engine. Chris
