If you follow the installation instructions, you won't have any problems. They're designed to work in compatibility with stock components.

yeah...i did follow the instructions and everything is hooked up just fine. everything works.


i used to be turbocharged and i have the fuel pump laying around. i have somebody that wants to buy it and i'm going to sell it to him. i just wanted to make sure i don't need it for the zex kit before i sell it.

i don't spray very often. i've had the kit for like 5 months already and have only sprayed like 3 times the first day i hooked it up. i just have it there incase i need it. i haven't needed it though

That's showing some restraint. Especially considering you used to be boosting. I would've figured you wouldn't have been able to resist the power of the N4wZZZ!

yeah....i just don't need the spray very often.

i don't race my car like i used to when i was boosted with the turbo. when i had turbo, i would race all the time and was boosting 10lbs on an ls motor.

even though they say zex is "safe", i think i get more nervous with the zex than i did when i was boosting with the turbo.

i want to run people all motor as much as possible, but if i need the bottle, i know its there. my next mod will probably be a CTR intake cam cause i need some midrange and more top end power.

Ya lots of people are scared of nitrous but that's got more to do with all the rumors and misinformation out there about it. Just remember you're engine can't tell the difference internally between the two (boost and nitrous) so everytime you jumped on your car when it was turboed would be the same as hitting the nitrous everytime. Your car was obviously ok before and it certainly will be again only running a 60 shot.
