    what happens when:

    your nitrous solenoid sticks open and you turn the bottle on driving down the road. intake is gone, TB blade is bent all to hell and number 4 cylinder has no compression. time for a rebuild and the nitrous is not going back on. just thought i would point this out to some of you thinking about using it. I have more pics.

    Atleast you didn't put a hole in the hood. If you did it would be a custom heat extractor!

    did a good job there. always wondered what an intake looked when sectioned out.

    Thats really odd solenoids by design want to be closed. The only thing that will really casue them to "stick open" or leak is if they get depris in them. In over 5 years I can't say I've ever seen a solenoid actually hang open, seen some leak a little. How long had you had the nitrous on the car?
