i was thinking instead of the micro switch on the throttle body.....
i was thinking of wiring my right horn button with to the nitrous like this.....what do you think

idk why but i feel safer using it with the horn button and controlling it with my finger then on the TB

i mean i feel its a safe place because if i miss shift i dont want to go full throttle and then have the nitrous kick in and blow the [email protected]#K out of my motor......i feel that the button will work better because i will have to let go of the button to shift and if i do happen to miss shift my hand will be on the shifter instead of the button.....catch my drift

if it were me i would put it on the left side since you have a stick when you are racing at the drag strip your hand will never leave the shifter, you will end up being a slow shifter if you do.

Encorporate it on a dual switch system. Put one push button on the floor under the gas pedal then another switch some place hidden that is a toggle. That way when you want to run juice you power up the floor switch with the toggle and it will come on when you floor it. If you miss a shift you will probably be screwed nitrous or not.

I would think that you might fail an inspection for the horn.

In summary. One toggle to power the push button. Floor it and get nitrous. Thats my vote.

I'd never use a switch location other than on the throttle. Your natural instinct would always be to lift you foot on a missed b gear. You would have to train your brain to release a certain finger when you missed the shift if you used a hand operated button.

A hand switch for activation has to one of the poorest and slowest choices.

If you want to protect on a shift miss, buy an RPM limiter and tie the NOx activation into the RPM limiter.

When I ran NOx I had a "ready" rocker switch, used a throttle switch for actual activation, had low fuel pressure cut off, and had RPM limit cutoff. It isn't hard to do. It is even possible to have a simple lock-out switch that prevents restarting the juice once you have hit the RPM limiter. That way it is OFF until you reset it with a foot lift.

Never in my life would I use a separate hand activation.

Micro switch with an "arming" switch. Best way to do it. Just make damn sure that it will only activate under total WOT.

I had a dual trigger setup in my 89, a WOT switch on the TB and a relay switch wired up to the Cigarette lighter that would activate when pressed down~:shigrin
