    Weird, my 100 shot is two .034 jets. Yourís .125 one, maybe thatís a 100hp at the rear wheels shot. Iíve seen a 75-80hp increase at the rear wheels on the dyno @13.5 a/f ratio.

    well, here it is. personally, it shouldn't be taken with a grain of salt. basically, the dry nozzle is in the wrong place in the lid. MAF cannot get a good enough sample of the nitrous to add the appropriate amount of fuel. so, i stopped the test. again, IMO due to improper placement of the nozzle, i don't call this a fair test.

    NA 282 rwhp 284 rwtq
    100 dry 347 rwhp 362 rwtq gain of 65 rwhp
    100 wet 405 rwhp 409 rwtq gain of 123 rwhp

    on a good note, this is the first time i've ever gotten more than rated with the wet kit.

    You are really lean on the dry run. Is that what you mean about,"the dry nozzle is in the wrong place in the lid"?

    yes. it's not close enough for the MAF to read correctly.
