    You will need a window switch, or better yet, a progressive controller. A bottle heater. And depending on what is done to your car and how much you want to spray, maybe a fuel pump... also, make sure the plugs are non-projected, not just colder...

    Those guys are freakin idiots - that kind of timing would kill an LS1 on the spray in a hurry! and the dyno graphs show it - pretty ugly curves there...

    Spark Controller: Rev limiter works by cutting fuel. Not what you need for N02.

    That is why you use a window switch or progressive controller... to cut the nitrous off before the rev limiter setting...

    Cool what i did

    I also like to have a fuel pressure safty switch and a exhast temp gage to see if your running it too lean. then u can richen up the system if it is a wet system. And also a purge valve or u will foul some plugs out playing with it..
