had some free time today and my cousin and two friends came over and we installed my nitrous set up. its a zex dry kit w/ pressure gauge, zex bottle heater, and nos purge kit. it took us a little less than 6 hours to do and that includes 3 runs to autozone, 1 run to lappens and 1 to home depot. i can't beleive how easy the zex kit was to install. its literally idiot proof. we broke one of the mounting tabs on the din delete plate so i need to get a new one. it stays in place now but pops out sometimes when u flip a switch. u can see its crooked in a couple of the pics. i wasnt able to get the bottle filled cuz today is sunday and the speed shops around here are closed. i'm gettin it filled tomorrow morning. the gears, chip and tune up are coming either this thursday or the following monday, then i can start sprayin it. i just got the 75 hp jets on there now until i upgrade the fuel system. here's the pics:














purge pics coming tomorrow :D

hey on all those vacuum line connections....make sure to use small hose clamps. I kept blowing the hoses clean off without anything holding them on. And also zip-ties dont work. However i'm running a SC, so those lines see 16psi, plus the additional nitrous pressure for fuel enrichment.

Just some safety as if those lines come off you'll have no fuel enrichment, and its happened to me a few times now. The kit comes with the clamps, or they are just 1/4" hose clamps, you'll need 4....two for each hose.

ok. i got the hose clamps, i'll put them on before i actually use the nitrous.

got the bottle filled today, i have a very slight leak, i can hear hissing. sounds like its coming from the purge solenoid area. i gotta do the soapy water test and seal that up too.

i'll have some purge pics later on tonight.

Did you use the thread lock pipe tape, because I had the same problem, until we used that on the purge selenoid.

you guys know that you're not suposed to use tape right?

All nitrous kits prefer the use of liquid thread sealant. Its a white paste. This paste will not break apart and clog jets, or solenoids. I got mine at a local parts store, made by permatex.

If you use the tape properly it won't clog anything. Been using Teflon tape for years.

It's a good idea though. I'm always losing those damn rolls of tape.
