Question Need help on desired setup...

I am trying to get the Nitrous Express N-tercooler system, and also install the Boost Reference Progressive Controller (http://www.nitrousexpress.com/Pages/nxd5000.htm ) to help my turbo spool up faster, and to provide some additional power untill I am running at full boost.
My question is, If i ordered the NX N-tercooler system and the progressive controller, what else would I need to add the actual nitrous injection? (E.I. a y fitting to split the line from the bottle, another solinoid, etc....?) I want to run 1 line to the halo intercooler sprayer, and run the other with the boost progressive controler, spraying nitrous injection to my intake system..

Can someone please tell me the best way of putting this together, and what additional parts I will need if I order the N-tercooler kit... Would be easier/cheaper to order the 2 stage efi wet kit, and just buy a y splitter and a halo ring? Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

You'd need a few solenoids, a y fitting to splice into the fuel line, some ss braided hoses, a nozzle, and some jets. Could get the parts on e-bay for less then $100.....

The n-tercooler kit only comes with the single nitrous solenoid, so as hippy mentioned you’d need the entire “wet” system to inject nitrous at the intake level minus a tank which you already have. Then you would need a Y adapter to use your existing nitrous source…

ok sounds easy enough! However I still have no idea where in the intake line I should install the jet? I have a txs shroty intake, perrin turbo inlet hose, and then my huge tmic... I know on na cars, you usually just mount it around 6 inches away from the intake manifold, but I have no Idea when it comes to fi, someone please teach me! BTW: Has anyone on here actually put together a set up like this? Would love to see it!

Thanks for all the help thus far.

nitrous is one of those things that you need to know a lot about before you put it on your car. since you're asking the type of questions that you are, i would suggest holding off a little bit until buying parts and fabricating a system. research as much as you can.

a spool shot is a good idea, but there is no need for a progressive controller. you need an rpm activated window switch. this will allow the nitrous spraying into the motor to only activate between a certain rpm. this way you could have it come on at 1500 rpm and shut off at 4000 or whenever you want it to.

you can tee off one bottle between the 2 systems, but the progressive controller is still unnecessary for your needs. you will want to inject the nitrous after the maf before the throttle body. look for where people install their meth injection on tmic's....thats where you should install the nozzle. also, use a wet kit. tuning will be much easier that way.

Well for what it's worth, I completely disagree with these comments…

I’m no authority on the matter, but if you where in fact looking to use nitrous to compensate slow spool from a larger turbo, then turbo pressure would be the source to progressively spray for….

Then again, I think the idea of using nitrous for spool purposes is silly. I would imagine you would see much greater gains with the spray if you used it up top at optimal peak pressure, in the traditional fashion.

Nevertheless, +1 for doing your research before hand. If you had, you would know your only option is to spray post IC which with a TMIC which doesn’t leave many options for nozzel placement…

I suggest you don’t do it at all with your moderately modified setup…

If all you want n2o for is to spool, there are many easy alternatives to a boost based controller or rpm controller. A simple throttle and boost switch would make it so the n2o would turn on above a given throttle point, and off above a given boost. This would cost a lot less then any "controller" out there, and probably work just as well if not better.

No I have a ball bearing turbo and hit full boost by 3200, like I said, i just want some additional power. I really think an ej20 can handle a 25-35 shot of nitrous just fine. Im getting the n-tercooler sprayer anyways, so why not spend the very extra bucks on a soloniod and a jet and get more bang for my buck?

THe boost referencing controller will sell for $275..it includes a TPS activation switch, and window switch. It will also run 2 stages/kits. All things considering it is a very good value.


This is a demo screen shot from the controller software
