Nitrous normally works with two switches on a manual...Wide open throttle switch and a window switch (i think)

Injectors, fuel pump, colder plugs 1 or 2 steps colder depending on size, and a good tune for the n/a side to turn those over sized injectors down so they work well when not spraying, and then another good tune to get them to dump fuel when you spray.

You really have two ways to go with this. One is you use a window switch which lets you select the window or rpm rang when the nitrous would turn on/off at. This of course is used with the WOT switch so its only at WOT.

The other way is without one and you simply lift off the thorttle when you shift, and don't go to WOT until the rpms are high enough with the kit armed so you dont spray the nitrous to low in the rpm rang.

Default NX Kit

I am running the NX Express Plate system for the 4.6 3v. I have installed several of these kits on friends and co-club members cars. I think this is the best made kit out there. It is Pricey ($800 plus) then all the saftey stuff comes in a kit (GenX 2) for another $250 I am running a tune from Delta Force, Brisk Racing Plugs (2 ranges colder), MSD Digital window switch (a real classy piece) another $100. I am running the 150 shot (NX says they flow test their systems to RWH) so a 150 shot is a true rwh increase, not sure anyone else does. In any event I have had the system for 2 years and have had no problems. One saftey precaution that I can recommend is that the traction control is turned off, if not the computer takes out fuel and timing and you will have problems as I experienced once and only once (you don't need to tell me twice). Great kit, real quality and great tech support if you need it. Expensive yes but so are blown motors due to cheap stuff.

There’s no doubt about it, the cheapest way for your car to make big horsepower gains is to add a Nitrous Oxide System. N20, which is comprised of two parts Nitrogen and one part Oxygen, is not all it takes to add this power, which is why many companies sell Nitrous Kits which are complete system to add the desired amount of horsepower to your Muscle Car.

Original NOS systems should be fitted always. I have read, cheap quality ones tend to burst posing serious threat to both the life of car and the passengers.
