This is an unbelievable write up! If you are buying an NX kit, or thinking about it, this is a must read.

My fuel block came today from NX, cost $37. For those of you that dont know, the fuel block is used on 03-04 cars because we dont have the shrader valve which is used to tap into the fuel rails for fuel.

Heres a picture of the fuel block and where it goes. You take that black switch out of the drivers side fuel rail, then put the block in and put the switch on top of the block. Then your hose from the fuel solenoid hooks into the block.

Just to update everyone. "Stage 2" has totally changed. I got a Bullitt intake instead and will be getting a retune by Ed Clark in May. Also I need to change one thing about my write up. When you mount the heater it has to be on the bottom of the tank, so opposite of how I have it pictured. Also be sure to check out my site for more write ups.

I also noticed that the write up doesnt really talk about installing the purge line.

Where did you put yours?

I used some regular hose and routed it up through the firewall and through the plastic cowl by the windshield.

that's where I want to put it. did the kit come with hose, or did you have to buy some/have some on hand already (not from the kit)

The kit came with some short metal hose that you would have to bend. I just cut that hose so it was real short, then found some rubber hose to slide over that. I should probably take pictures and put them in the write up.

The only other things you need to buy are spark plugs, window switch, and a fuel block if you have a 03+ car.
