bit the bullet... bought nitrous setup!

Welp... I just ordered the nitrous express coyote plate system setup from AM...

The real reason for the thread is not to brag , but to ask you more experienced nitrous people if I have forgotten anything really necessary to run a nice, clean, safe nitrous setup!

Along with the nitrous kit I also ordered:

directly related to the NX kit:
MSD window switch
NX purge kit
heat range 7 spark plugs
SCT X4 tuner

indirectly related, but supporting mods:
JLT cai
Lethal Perf off road h-pipe

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE that you all feel I need to be running along with what I have to be as safe as possible with this kit???

Thanks guys/gals

Add a Fuel Pressure Safety Switch and a bottle heater to your list and you'll be set.

Fuel pressure safety switch... hadn't heard of that one but it does make a lot of sense... Thanks

As for the heater... 1.) I live in hot *** new mexico. And 2.) I was under the impression that a bottle heater was really only needed it you'd be hitting the nitrous back to back to back to back. Because then it would get cold.
I really don't plan on beating it around town like that...

Any thoughts?

It's always good to have a heater because when you make a pass or use nitrous there will be a pressure drop and the shot will be weakened. I am sure you want to get the most out of it with every use, so optimum pressure will be important. The only other way around the heater and pressure drop issues is to use a pusher system like the NANO system. I have one on my car and love it. Here's a pic of the FPSS that screws into your fuel rail adapter. You will want one that is set for 50psi.

You shouldn't need to, as I believe the NX kit comes with a fuel rail adapter which is the black piece that the FPSS is screwed into in the pic that I posted earlier. I used blue loctite on all of my NPT fittings instead of teflon paste.

True. They do state that it comes with a fuel rail adapter piece. Thanks NoSlo5oH!

What size slick did you end up getting? You had mentioned it in your other link when you chatted with Dan at AM!

10" wheel and they hook really good on the street. I will be taking the car to the track for some numbers as soon as the weather allows me too. It has been raining a lot here in Kansas City.

8's do, 10's require a modded sway bar.

The wheels/tires will fit with minor modifications. I started out using a BMR sway bar relocate kilt, which requires a portion of the sway bar mounting tabs to be cut off to raise the sway bar to clear a 10" wheel. The problem I encountered is; the factory sway bar slightly touched the left side of the panhard bar bracket. To fix this, I ended up removing the factory sway bar and taking it to a machine shop to have some material removed to gain the necessary clearance. I then had it sandblasted and powder coated. After all that; I still wasn't happy with the amount of clearance that I had, which was about an 1/8", so I ordered a Strano adjustable rear sway bar. I had to have the Strano brackets cut, drilled and slotted to provide proper mounting and clearance. The rear sway bar setup is perfect now. Here's an angled pic of the Strano bar installed.

Here's a left side shot of the Strano sway bar. This should give you a better idea of the amount of clearance that I gained by installing this bar. BMR is also working on a similar sway bar, but no release date has been revealed yet.

It was definitely was more work than I expected. Hopefully my shared experience in this area will save you from having to endure any unnecessary grief. I was on the fence about whether to get the 8's or 10's too, but I'm glad I went with the 10's.

hey NoSlo5oH is this the FPSS you were referring to? Or did you buy a different one?

Nitrous Express 15718 Nitrous Express Nitrous Pressure Gauge - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS

this one says nitrous express nitrous pressure gauge... not fuel pressure? hhmmm
buy it will get to 50psi like you said...

"These EFI fuel pressure safety switches from Nitrous Express are designed to cut off the fuel supply if the pressure gets too low. This prevents a lean condition, which could harm your engine."

Thanks

Here's the one I bought.

Although the product description is off a bit on the link you posted, it appears that would also work. Keep in mind that you would have to set the pressure on that one yourself.

Very true! Plus yours is half the price! Think I'll go with that so I don't have to worry about adjusting the fuel pressure!
Thanks

Gotta question here.....
So I'm in the middle of installing this kit. Boy Ooo boy is it cake! Good directions from NX and just all in all an easy task...

But my question is: can I drive the car normally on my NA tune from Lund now that I have installed the NX plate kit system between the intake manifold and the throttle body??????????

The plate system is about 3/8 inch thick. So I get the feeling that it is going to kind of act like a throttle body spacer?!!? Right?!!!?

Let me know what y'all think of this idea...

Yes i was serious. Lol
I come from the forced induction side of things where the simplest change in things changes a lot of things!
Didn't know how much of a role an actual throttle body spacer performs...
Thanks though Rapinator
