    Nitrous Kit

    I will be installing a 100-hp dry shot on my 2000 ss, my mods are in my sig. First off my car is tuned with hp tuner software should I richen up the tune. Second do i need a window switch or do you think the transmission will be fine if spray through the shifts. My car ha 71000 miles and is in great condition. Car will only be sprayed every once in awhile. Anything else i need. Also where can i hide the silonoids. I will mount the 10-lb bottle in a bag right behind my drivers seat. What you guys think.

    i would not spray through the shifts my vett is shifting at 6200 rpm and i'm going to kill the spray at 6000.... i think the window switch is a very good safety item espectially if your driving a stick

    get an RPM window switch and do like the nice man said, dont squeeze through shifts.
    I squeezed from 3200 to 5800 w/ an A4. it saves clutch packs and driveshafts in the long run.
    Not to mention what it will do to your stock converter.....

    BJSS25 - no need to richen up the tune. the MAF will do that for you. depending on your total timing, you may need to back it off a little. spraying through the shifts is up to you. i do it on all my cars. hiding the solenoids, well keep the hood closed. some have hid it under the airlid by the radiator. then stick hte nozzle into the bellow from the bottom. use black wire loom. even use black tape on the solenoid itself.

    please mention what it'll do to a stock converter. especially a 100 shot. i've put 150+ through stock trans and converters in both cars for some time. both times i had trans problems is when i was out screwing around not giving the trans enough time to cool down and burned the 2nd gear band.

    the window switch turns the n2o on and off at given rpms that you set it to.

    depends on what the total timing the hypertech has made the timing tables. i've run 25* total timing on 150+. but, to be on the safe side, take it back to stock. only use the shift settings and such.

    thanx thats exactly what i needed to know.. Also where can I get a good purge kit with two nozzles(one for each side of the car)

    So you think I should get a window switch to be safe and insure no tranny or converter problems?

    I'd advise a timing tuner....it can pull timing and act as a window switch for you...

    Usually a dry shot will pull a few degrees of timing. If you need to pull more then that then the LS1 Timing Tuner would be your best bet.

    you use one purge solenoid. then split the line coming out.
