NO2 tuning and installation questions

So, I want to buy a 150-200 shot my for '13 GT. I've been searching all morning for answers on how the tune works with running NO2 and i'm still confused.

firstly, once I install it, how does the tune run?
is the tune always "on" or is there a switch that I have change the tune from a 93 tune to a 93+NO2 tune?
does it automatically add fuel when I go WOT and add timing(or pull timing)?

will I need a "boost a pump" or a "boost a spark"?

what spark plug do y'all run? at what degree and spacing?

No such thing as a "boost a spark", anything past 150 shot and you will probably want to look at forging the engine. The nitrous tune is always on, unless you change tunes from the handheld tuner. Which, don't do, unless you want to blow your engine, or you don't have the nitrous hooked up if your going to use a non nitrous tune.

Anyways, a guy in here knows a lot more about nitrous than the rest of us, Rapinator126. Hopefully he sees this thread and responds. Who knows, I may have accidentally given misinformation, I don't think I did, but he'd know.

NO2 tuning and installation questions

There actually is a "boost a spark" (not very common that's probably why you didn't know mustangz) kenne bell makes it. I ran it on my 03 cobra. But no you do not need one.

You will have 2 separate tunes.
1 for NA
1 for nitrous
You can run the nitrous tune all the time If you wish, you will just be down on power on motor alone.

The nitrous can be activated a few different ways. Either a old school button.
Full throttle switch, or set up on a progressive to come on whenever you wish.
For Stock motor best bet is for the nitrous to come on at 3500 rpms at full throttle.

I recommend a BAP it's cheap insurance.
Now for a 150-200 that's up to you.
A 200 on stock internals is a big hit, if you go with a 200 at a minimum you will need a hard lined plate kit. And the BAP will be mandatory at this point as chances are you will be sucking all the fuel out of the rail on the initial hit.

Now the list for stuff you will need to complete the system does go on.

If you have never used nitrous b4 I would start with a 100.

Just saw the last part.

Spark plugs will change depending on the shot.
100 shot you can run stock plugs
150-200 I ran the NGK iridium IX's
.35 gap

THANK YOU SIR! now with the tunes, how easy it is to swap between them on the fly? i'll usually be running the NA tune and switch to the NO2 if I come across a pesky vette.

what is a hard lined plate kit?

You can't swap on the fly unfortunately.
You will have to stop turn the car off and swap.

This is where the LSX guys have 1 up on us. They have a timing twister that they can adjust on the fly and go.

We can't do this due to our COP design.
One company had something that was supposed to work for us, the "vampire box" My tuner and I messed around with this and we just were not comfortable with it.

So it's the old stop and swap or run in the nitrous tune all the time which I did.

A hard lined kit is describing the lines leading from the nitrous and fuel solenoid's to the plate itself.
They are made of small pieces stainless tubing, vs the traditional soft lines.

I guess that isn't too bad then. if I have it tuned for WOT and 3500 rpm, i'm good with that

now, the idea of physical switch for the NO2 seems a little off-putting to me. have you ever experienced a situation when you got on the throttle at say 70-80% but you accidentally set the NO2 off(like, when passing someone on the highway)?

The actual system is activated by a arming switch. So when it's off nothing will happen.

And you set the rpms and throttle % for the nitrous to come on with the progressive or window switch.
Which is usually a 100% throttle.

Mine was set at 2800 Rpms.
For you have it set at 100% throttle and 3,500 Rpms

You can literally control every bit of the nitrous system now.

By gear say you are spraying 400 but only want 100 in 1st, 150 in 2nd, and gradually go up. You can also add traction in also. Say you start spinning you can have to where it pulls some nitrous out, till you hook again then it will spray whatever amount you have it set at. And so on. If you can think it she can be done with the right software and progressive

I had nitrous express. (I had a direct port though ) They do not make a hard lined plate kit. They will custom make you one if you call them but will cost more.

Nitrous express makes a hard lined plate kit.

Rap, is there one progressive controller you like best? Maybe a link to it? To help with the original question....have you had any luck with a mail order N02 tune.

The maximizer 4 from NX is one of the best.
