My buddy drag with a 67 Chevelle.... His system is a Nitrous Express. He's trying to get me to buy a system.

He recommends to buy a wet system only and he likes the NOS and Nitrous Express systems.

right now i have a nos system...wet....
easy to hook up....the hardest thing with the kit i have is hooking up the rpm wire that injects nos between 3000 and 6000 rpm...
other than that...not too bad...

thanks for the opinions...so i guess the Zex kit isn't any good since none of the guys on the board have any input.....how long did it take for the NX install???would the average Joe like me be able to install it??

I ran the ZEX kit on my 2.5RS for a while. I sold it because it was more problems than it was worth. I'm telling you, a single dry fogger in the intake tract (tube or otherwise) just will NOT evenly distribute the nitrous through the intake runners. I tried several different placements of the fogger, and every time, pretty much all of the nitrous goes into the rear driver's side cylinder (can't remember exactly, but I think it's cylinder 4). Bad news when that happens. A little quick math, and you can see that, when running the 75-shot, you would be running almost a 300-shot to one cylinder, and forgetting completely about the fact that you will NOT be able to supply enough fuel to that cylinder, the rest of the pistons would basically become useless mass that would effectively put more resistance on cylinder 4 (I think it was 4...). Bad news for li'l ol' cylinder 4!

Of course, if you figure out a placement for a single fogger that works with our intake, please let me know! I would be interested to hear about it, though I am now only really interested in turbo (power all the time without draining your wallet like a crack addiction! ).

Personally I think the best money can buy are the Venom NO2 kits. Fully computerized with fual/air, NO2/fuel sensors so it constantly changes the amount of NO2 being also monitors engine RPM to make sure there is no "pinging" at higher RPM's, I havent used it personally but have a friend with a supercharged civic si running the Venom setup and he said there is nothing compared to it as far as import NO2 goes.

Think they have a website not sure though.
