Hi Guys

Going to be getting a Nitrous oxide kit for my falcon (50hp), just for something different.

But one question, I have a haltech already installed with enough free inputs/outputs for the computer to be able to retard timing and put in the extra fuel, should I use a dry kit? or a wet kit to simplify tuning?

Cheers

for a 50 HP shot a dry kit will suffice.

But i can guarantee that once you use it you will want more, so for ease of future upgrades i would recommend a wet kit.

Ensure that you have sufficient capacity within your existing fuel set up for it.

The dry kit artifically ups fuel pressure to compensate for the fuel needed. A wet kit uses a seperate fuel sustem. The 5.0 stuff for a wet kit attaches the fuel supply through the schreader valve from the fuel rail, and to be honest is easy to set up and tune.

What manifold are you running. Is it on a 5.0.
I have my old RPMII plate here that i no longer need.
PM me if you are interested. It will fit a victor/performer or RPMII upper/lower combo, but would need a change in fuel lines to fit. Check the early pages of my build thread for full details.
