Installed my bottle heater

Well, I got the heater from my best friend at UPS, and immediately went out and put it on. So far it works great... I have to rewire something with my nitrous system cause for some reason it only arms when my neon lights are on... So ive got some wires mixed up that I need to find... other than that its good. It was funny, I had the heater, neons, stereo, and antying else electric on while i was stopped at a light, then went to purge it and it killed my car cause my alternator couldnt charge at that low of RPM and I was pulling too much current LOL... so yeah, ive gotta get that neon problem taken care of.

New times will come on Sunday... be prepared.

It all depends on what your nitrous pressure was. If you had a brand new bottle when you went to the track, 14.9s. If it was partially full, then 14.8. I cannot see you dropping a half a second at the track just by a bottle heater. Bottle heater doesn't add hp, just allows the nitous after 2-3lbs are used to be more effective.

If you goto the track with a brand new bottle, it doesnt matter what the temp is, because the pressure is already at 1050psi in the bottle and no heater or ice cube is going to change that enough to change your times.

but congrats on getting it installed. Just rip out the neons and have a car that isnt ghetto

My pressure has never been above 800 psi even when its just filled. I have a pressure guage on it, and its never been above 800. I just want 14s, if i get that... Ill be happy

wait wait how were you having your bottle to get up psi when you didnt have a heater?

Have you checked for puddling? Id do that esp if you been pushing the button below PSI a few times.

BTW id say if your running a 100 shot then 14.6-14.7

That's odd. goto another fill shop. My bottles were never below 1100psi on initial opening.

This is way off-topic here, but since I'm not a mod anymore, i'll allow it

oh, btw. I used to live at 115th and something (that was 10yrs ago when 119th was the edge of civilization) Near Oxford middle school and Indian Valley Elem. (my two schools i went to)
