UPDATE: Bottle straps are mounted (this sucked more than any other part of the install). Located on the passenger side of the trunk.

Need to hook up fuel lines/adapter, need to wire in bottle warmer, and that's it.

Going to the track this Wednesday I will not spray until 3rd gear probably. If I feel comfortable I'll spray in 2nd....In the pics below you can see where I put my switch. Should make it easy to turn on while going down the track.

MSD window switch will be wired in later as well.

Fuel line is hooked up. I used the shrader valve for now but will eventually move it to the fuel rail adapter I have. I need it to be done and ready for Wednesday which is why I did it this way. Bottle going in tomorrow and spraying/testing.

Hi JonR,glad to hear your no2 install is going well.Since the zex system kicks in a wot you can lift half way between shifts and then floor it the first pass or two.That way you can feel the system out first before power shifting it and staying at full power on the shifts.Thats what I did to see how my car was going to react at first.I was hopeing to get my hood in primer this past weekend but it took AM 5 days to ship my hood out,not sure why since it was in stock.Oh well,good luck with your spray and hold on.

[SIGPIC]

That is a long time for AM, they are normally good at getting an order out the same day it's submitted. Hopefully it all turns out for you. Post pics when it's installed and painted.

I actually don't powershift ever, I quick shift but no power shifting for me.


UPDATE: Bottle is in and WOW is it much faster! It doesn't hit like I thought it would but the pressure was not optimum and I do not have my bottle heater hooked up. Tomorrow night will be better when it has time to sit in the sun and get a little warmer. I did a 2nd-4th and no traction issues on the street. It did bark pretty hard in 3rd

I'll update with my new track times after tomorrow night.

Slightly disappointed but slightly ok with my numbers. I ran a best of 13.5/106. My MPH is way better. I couldn't spray until 2nd gear when I got traction and I was almost hitting the rev limiter at the end of track in 4th. I need some taller/stickier tires in the back. My 60s were not as good as I have had in the past. I averaged 2.1s...I was mustering 1.9s all day long...still room to improve, which is good.

Bottle heater and gauge need to go in still. I'm still waiting on the T-fitting to run my gauge.

The MPH does seem a little low my stock 3v traps 105. Not spraying out the hole will really hurt though since 60ft is your ET. Each .1 off the 60ft is .2 on the top end. With slicks and a 100 shot out the hole It should be going mid 12s, With the Zex 100 jets you are making slightly less then I did with NX. Around 30rwhp. Try the 125 jet.

I was expecting a 108+ mph but again I was probably only spraying 50-60 to the wheels...I'll be putting the 125 jets in, my fuel rail adapter and my heater before I go again. Bama is going to get me a tune as well. If I can muster a 13.3 on my tires now I'll be happy honestly.


I'm trying to focus on some other things though outside of my car...been too wrapped up in it lately and need a break from it.

Glad to hear it's coming along. Like you acknowledged, getting used to the set up will play huge part. I would think the updated tune should help as well.


that's the nice thing about our cars, they will sit a wait right were we left em

Was going to go the parts store and get the bolts and o rings I need for the adapter but got too lazy. I'll go tomorrow. I'm ready to get it all done, tired of working on it ha. It's sat since I went to the track. Probably won't drive it until I get eveything done.

Small UPDATE: I returned my window switch and saved $160. My dad and I both agreed that with my purposes I do not need it. I do not powershift, I RAIRLY miss a shift, and I do not run the nitrous all the time. I will get crucified for this but oh well.

Still in a waiting period for my fuel rail adapter and T-fitting. Will call the shop today to see if they have those in for me (they sold me an adapter for a 3V).

I also ordered my Bama tune for the 100 shot. I asked if they can do a 102/93 mix..we will see what they can do.

UPDATE: It's finally complete. I got the bottle warmer wired in, the swivel manifold to run the gauge on the Zex bottle, and the gauge. Took it for a spin and beat a G8 GT (stock) and a Focus ST (no shocker there). Runs really good still


The Bama tune runs good. I don't have a wide band yet so I can't measure AFR but timing is retarded a degree or two from stock which is fine. I'm happy and it's a huge load off my shoulders.


Onto some slicks and maybe the 125 jets but those are easy to change out.

Been through my first bottle already. Need to go get it refilled.

I have a tune problem that I'm not happy about. The Zex NMU (nitrous management unit) is dependent on having 40psi from the fuel rail. BAMA increased my fuel pressure from 40 to 48-49. I just noticed it this morning. I put my N/A tune back on and sure enough 40psi. I will need to call them to see why they did that (I know why...more fuel...but the stock 40psi is completely adequate for the small shot I'm running AND the NMU is dependent on the 40psi). Not too happy but good thing I noticed now. Essentially my fuel pump has been working extra hard and I can only assume I've been running rich (They could have altered the injecor pulses for all I know but I doubt it). We will see how this pans out.

The stock pump and system will handle a 100 shot without modification. Maybe they do that to lessen the lean spike at initial hit? IDK...I will play dumb and see what they say.
