    Have a NX Wet Kit already - now what LS1 plate?

    I'm planning on reusing a universal wet NX kit off my old vehicle. It's a nozzle design and I think I rather go with a plate design specifically for an LS1. Which plate set-up is the best.

    I already have the jets, lines, solenoids, bottle heater, fuel pressure safety switch, gauges, mount, RPM Window Switch, and throttle switch. I'm really in need for just the plate, so I think.

    Looking at using the 100hp shot; MAYBE 150 once it's tune and I can confirm the A/F ratios are dead on.

    I read an article in GM High-Tech Performance back in '06 where they tested the new NOS plate and the RW#s were great. It was a non bar design. This the best design to go with?

    Thanks.

    ouch, I bought my whole kit, everything mentioned above for another $150 bucks ($550 total). Perhaps I'll keep the nozzle style. I've been googling, but haven't found much yet.

    Thanks for the link!

    Heres the plate I use, works very good. Definately hits harder than the single nozzle does.

    i you buy the hsw plate separate from the kit it only goes to i think 125, but the better made higher quality nitrous outlet plates flows to 400hp. no comparison.

    Actually it is internally limited to about a 200hp shot, I actually perfer the HSW plate due to their 360 degree spray pattern. But you really cant go wrong either way, they are both quality made products.

    Very poor choice to compare mfg's based on flow numbers alone. A lot more goes into the design of plates than mere flow. But let it be know that our plates will far exceed 400hp both on the fuel and the nitrous sides without any imperfections in spray pattern of which is very typical of inline flowing parts. HSW took the position of not encouraging people to use a single entry point exceeding 200hp through the mouth of an efi manifold. Anything more than that, and in my opinion, is walking on dangerous grounds and should step up to a direct port system at that point for its tunability.
