All right guys, this has prob been asked a million times...but...

I'm thinking of running nitrous on my curent engine for some more fun at the track but i've read some very confusing info about the regulations, such as, sealed parcel shelf, rear firewalls. Due to stereo these are not a possibilty. anyone that can shed some light on this will be my new best friend :D :D :D :D

Thanks everyone

Trent

street wise in sure you can have it on the car and that but it must not be connected as for the Wednesday night drags im pretty sure its all good as long as the car has rego and not leaking and safe eg roadworthy its all good

Sounds about right, NSW you can have the system installed, but not have the bottle connected, it must physically be disconnected (solenoid valves don't count).

Other states you can't have ANYTHING installed.


Or just fill you're chassis rails with mini bottles and run full stealth.*

*warning do not do this.

Ride: EFII 5.8 NOS TerroristGhia

Power: 274 rwkw

Location: Sydney Australia
NSW, Australia

For the track, the NOS must be mounted in a sealed cabin(ie the boot), the NOS lines must not pass through the cabin, so must go under the car. If the bottle is mounted inside the cabin, then you must purchase the purge kit for the burst disc, so if the bottle does overpressure, then the gas will be vented to atmosphere, and lastly the system must have 2 arming switches, 1 to turn it on, and one for full throttle. Oh yea, and the on switch must be lit with a blue light(the holley kits come with a red LED when turned on, but you can get replacement switches that have blue lights). Hope that helps
Brett

Thanks for that Brett, you’re a gentlemen and a scholar.

One more question, I will be modding my interior soon and was wandering if it is possible to mount the tank in-between my rear seats (removing bench and adding 2 singles), is this a possibility or am I just asking for trouble?

Trent
