Just for the record, nos does not equal nitrous.
I don't use it personally, sorry I can't help. I'm sure many others will chime in soon with some help!

NOS stands for Nitrous Oxide Systems which is branded by Holley. There are many Nitrous oxide system providers NOS is just one of them. There are many forms of Nitrous systems aside from branding. There is direct injecting where you spray every cylinder. There are single nozzle kits which can be sprayed before and after your MAF. There is also the diffference of wet and dry, wet meaning your spraying fuel with your Nitrous and dry your spraying nitrous by itself.

Each system has its own benifits. For your mustang on regular street tires I recomend a 100hp dry single nozle kit with proper dyno tuning for maximum ET gain and longevity. You could expect to go through around 40 10lb bottles before doing an engine rebuild at about 8 passes a bottle. For safe street use you will need a TPS switch that will keep you from spraying unless your engine is at full trottle. The TPS feature will save your engine from accidentaly being sprayed while normal driving and blowing your engine apart, so its cheap insurance. You will need to mount the bottle at a forward facing 45 degree upward angle for maximum bottle pressure. I also recommend using nitrous only with O/R mid exhuast pipes so your cats are not fried to a crisp. As far as brand selection goes the performance levels are very close from NOS, Edelbrock and Zex. Also do not try to peice together your own nitrous kit your first time around chances are youll miss somthing.

!!! Have your engine compresion tested before use of nitrous !!!
!!! Nitrous on an engine that needs rebuilt will blow the engine !!!

I was thinking the Zex kit with the tps just wanted to really no if you could use on a Dailey driver and would be using it at the track like once a month. Wouldn't be spraying around town just at the track.

I have no cats have a bbk x pipe so not worried about that and I would have the kit installed by a local mustang race shop. I'm a tech but would rather have someone who does them all the time put it in.

Its a fun investment and a good way to maximize your engine output. Since you want to run at the track can I ask what your current mods are and what your ET goals are?

---------- Post added at 09:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:56 AM ----------

I do alot of my own car work and have worked for numberous shops as well. Wize to have someone who works with it all the time install and tune your car for it.

Add JLT intake pipe. Upgrade your rubber to Mickey Thompson S/R tires for your 18 inch rims at the track. 4.10s are a good choice since you have the heavier 18inch rims. Add UPR U/D pulleys. Add UPR upper and lower control arms and you should hit mid 12's without spray.

I also recommend a FRPP alminum driveshaft to offset your heavy wheels.

I was planning on pulleys and rear control arms. I plan on really running it at the Nmra spring break shoot out next march that's my goal. So I have a year to really get it ready.

Recommend a dual friction clutch for maximum consistancy. Ram or Centerforce.

The Centerforce dual clutch is more suited to your power level I wouldnt go for the ram until im over 600 horse.

Stick with me Ill hook you up on the down low for parts. Ive been apart of the mustang crowd for 13 years. My first car was a 93 cobra and built for NMRA Real Street Class.

I feel ya, my fiance said house first then mustang. Only problem is with 3 kids and a house I dont have much room to get another car yet. However I think I just got a job working for Ford so hopefully the increased income will get me back in the drivers seat and I can build another car for NMRA competition seeing as how im a 20 min drive from a 1/4 track.

Also if you still plan on spraying nitrous a plate system is a nice way to go.
