    For those of you who have nitrous experience, just looking for advice. I pulled the trigger on an NX 4150 plate kit and will be getting it Monday. Just starting to read installs online and it seems fairly straight forward. Only thing I can't seem to find, for a wet plate kit where is the fuel pulled from?

    I tapped into my Aeromotive fuel pressuse regulator.

    Most ford factory kits run from shrader valve. If your rails have a spot for sensor take it from there. What's that like the third power adder to your setup. Charger, meth and now nitrous?

    I run Edelbrock rails and a Glenns setup with an Aeromotive regulator, so I'll have to see what my options are. Yes it will be, blower, intercooler, meth, and soon to be nitrous. However it's basically just like running a blower with nitrous because I'm using the meth as a safety tool, not really a power adder...only running 50/50. This time around I'll be running VP100 as well.

    I run meth, 75 shot, and a blower. Tuning can become a pain... I tapped into the side of my regulator where there was just a bolt that could be unscrewed.

    Not finding anywhere on my rails or Regulator, I'll have to try to figure something out

    Which regulator do you have?

    Possible to run a Tee fitting where that Autometer sensor is?

    That's exactly what I'm thinking. Will be way easier to do that than to try to hook something up to the rails.

    Why not run a 1gallon dedicated fuel system and only run race gas threw the nitrous. Put that battery in the back and put the cell in its place.

    That's an interesting idea that I haven't considered yet. I already have a 3 gallon trunk mount meth tank and a soon to be nitrous bottle back there, wonder if I could squeeze that in. That would be a win/win considering I wouldn't be running 100 octane when not spraying. I guess I would basically have to setup a whole new system with a separate fuel pump as well?

    Was just reading up on it a bit from other threads. So just to make sure I have the idea right, I could obviously continue to run 93/meth as my car runs now. I can run the VP100 in this dedicated tank. Once the nitrous is armed, that is when the internal pump to the dedicated cell is activated and at that time only would the 100 octane fuel be used through the nitrous plate when it is in the window of usage?

    Yes the race fuel is only shot threw the nitrous. Your engine will continue to run off the 93/meth. Very little tuning should be needed.

    Is there any draw back to putting the stand alone cell in the trunk?

    But what would be the difference between that and running race fuel in a regular tank if you got rear ended? If talking about safety, to me it seems more dangerous putting race fuel under the hood of 180 degree temps lol

    All the more reason to tap off of the regulator for fuel. If this was a dedicated race car I could see it differently.

    Just an opinion.

    Was more interested in the stand alone due to the fact that it would save me from having to run 100 octane fuel just cruising around and this car is primarily a weekend cruiser. And with 20+ psi, probably isn't a bad idea to have a high octane when spraying
