Default Pics of My Zex install for those who care.

The install was very straight forward with not a single problem at all. All said and done it took about 3 hours from start to finish. I have yet to fill the bottle and try it. However the brain is programmed, and the purge solenoid does work. I can't wait Here is the first one of the bottle in the trunk.

Can you post some pics of the intake part of the kit? Where and how you are running into the motor?

Are you adding additional fuel?

Looks good! Love the switches...big fan o' switches here.

No extra fuel.....yet, It's only a 55 shot. I tapped the nozzle into the cobb cai. Its about 8" away from the tb. I'll try to get some pics when it's light out. And I should be filling the bottle this week.

Cool. Curious though, would there be any harmful effects if water / other material gets into the upward facing purge tubing?

you'd think so given that the purge will be happening at 900-1100 psi.

Eh maybe you could make some kind of flap on the tubing going up.....Like on Mack truck exhaust pipes.....Just a silly idea.....Nice pics, like the install. Thinking of getting a Zex kit myself, just trying to figure out which to get first the Zex or a proecm chip.

If I were to do it again, I would get the chip and pulleys. I just found the zex pretty cheap so I went with it. But you can't beat having power anytime. Rather than relying on a bottle. I have to drop my bottle off to be filled, I will probably do that tomorrow.

Did I read that correctly, you put a honda/acura n2o kit on your subie? Well now that i think about it, it should be fine. But i'm not sure you'll be getting the "55" horse advertised. This on has a t/b spacer & it mixes it's onw fuel/n2o correct? Good luck & don't kill yourself or someone else. btw, n2o is'nt cheap so don't blow it to often. And, DO NOT SMOKE NEAR OR IN YOUR CAR!!!! VERY EXPLOSIVE!!!

HI, ...
can you explain the need for a T on your vacume lines please?
You should run it under your car for other safty reasons, not becuase it is VERY EXPLOSIVE! Becuase anyone that knows anything about N2o knows its non-flamable

sorry about my spelling I know it sucks. but I would like to know the need for the T you used in your vacume lines?

gasser, your right N2O is non flammable, it just helps the fuel combust more rapidly
So what are the other safety reason for not running the line in the car.
-would it be because a puncture in the line would eventuly put enough N2O in the cabin to put you to sleep?

Wow........it's not explosive, and why wouldnt I get the 55 hp shot I jetted it for? It sprays directly into the intake, about 8" before the tb. The honda/acura kit is not only specific to honda/acura. It's the same number as they do not have or need a specific kit for every car. Why would I kill myself or someone else


The T on the vacuum lines is ran into the zex. It was put there for raising the fuel pressure I believe. I feel confident running the line through the cabin. The ss braided hose is pretty puncture proof. I feel that inside the car is a lot safer than underneath where it could get caught on something or something could kick up and hit it.
