    Maybe a dumb question... or not...

    When running the nitrous line from the trunk to the motor, is the hole drilled through the floor of the trunk and the line run under the car then up into the intake?

    I would guess that the line couldnt be run throught the cabin... for safety reasons. (like having a leak in the line making the driver inhale all that laughing gas while racing. )

    It could be run either way, it would be more of a personal preference thing. We usually run them on the exterior of the vehicle.

    Thanks,

    I usually run mine on the inside, but that’s because I don't have a lift so it is easier for me to do it that way. But like Matt said it’s really a personal preference thing.

    Is there a safety risk in running the line inside the car?? I never personally heard of a horror story of someone burning or breathing in the nitrous due to an accident.

    With that said... I have tried "whippits" in my younger days... and enjoyed the experience.

    BTW: Matt, my order already came today! (but I wasnt home to sign for it) You guys have GREAT service!

    the safety risk is nitrous getting into the passenger compartment and making you feel really good about yourself. if there's enough, you'll feel so good, you'll pass out. also, if the line was to completely burst suddenly, it would fill the entire passenger compartment with a white cloud and you won't be able to see.

    Drill a hole through the drunk!? Your trunk doesn't have drain plugs you could go through? I'd rather do that first, and if you're worried about a leak by going through the drain plug, just make a smaller hole and use a bulk-head fitting to help seal it up. I'd avoid drilling a hole in my car... I seriously hate the holes I have in it now from when I just drilled wherever for whatever reason I felt necessary.
