    Wet kit is capable of a biger horsepower rating in the end since it has its own fuel supply.

    Difference- Wet kit has both fuel and nitrous solenoids to supply your engine with both through the kit and a dry kit only supplies the nitrous and running to big of a dry shot will ultimately lean out your Air Fuel mixture too much and you will blow the hell up

    Purge- all a purge does is releases excess air from your nitrous lines to get the spray to the engine faster. Should work with ANY nitrous kit. Just need the purge solenoid.


    Tune- no tune is needed to run nitrous however it is "recommended" that for every hundred shot you retard your timing by 1 degree. If you are just running around 100 shot you shouldnt have any problem though.

    Being a manual you may want to look into a window switch. Digital would be the way to go so that you dont have to buy pills for it. Also look into some colder running spark plugs such as the NGK TR6s. Also you will want a FPSS (fuel pressure safety switch) and WOT (wide open throttle) switch to come with your kit. Also get yourself a bottle heater, dont need a fancy one but you will end up needing one.

    FPSS- will disable your nitrous kit in the event that your fuel pressure drops below safe level to avoid blowing your engine

    WOT- only allows the kit to come on when you are under wide open throttle

    Bottle Heater- Will keep your bottle pressure up. It is needed because if your bottle pressure isnt within optimal range then you wont be getting enough nitrous to your kit and you can flood out your engine because it is only recieving fuel. I have flooded out my engine to the point that it stalled out after a race because I didnt pay attention to it.

    Hope this helps.

    witch is easyer to install? wet or dry? i guess you need a bigger fuel pump on a wet kit?

    and the dry kit sprys into the air lid right?

    both are easy to install. the wet kit only adds the fuel solenoid. it connects to the fuel rail and then the line to the nozzle. do not need a bigger fuel pump unless you are trying to go above 200 level.

    yes, the dry nozzle goes into the airlid.
