Look what I got today

I just got this nitrous kit from a guy I know for 50$, I wasn't plannin on puttin it on my truck, but has anyone ever used nitrous on a 4.0. It's a sneaky pete system with jetting for 20,25,35,50hp.The kit costs 215$ from summit, and it's never been used.

I don't know if i'm even gonna put it in, but I couldnt turn it down. I just wanted to find out if anyone else has run nitrous before and what I would be getting myself into if i did put it in.

I've been known to tinker with the bottle. What specifically are you asking?

If i was to use it how would I hook it up, it's a dry system It says it's for carbuerators only but I have seen them on fuel injected before.

The simple way, put a fogger or ' nozzlet ' into the intake tube or airbox. If its a ' dry ' system I would keep it jetted WAY down as theres no real way to measure the extra O2 being added to the mix. Your going to have to watch your A:F ratio like a hawk.

Honestly.. I'd ebay that thing away and snag a zex kit off ebay, one with the zex controller. Intake manifolds are cheap, but the time ripping them apart from a bad detonation, risking a lean condition.. not worth it.

has anyone ran Nitrous on a 2.3L LIMA engine?

And a while back I was at the drag strip there was a 01 Mustang that was shooting NITROUS or compressed air out by the wheels how could I do that?

that was most likely the nitrous purge set up, basically the point of the purge is to get the nitrous(acutal n2o) as close tot he motor as possible, so you add in an extra cylinder and you take a small pipe and vent it out of the engine bay, and when you see white then the nitrous is right up next to the motor, its harder to explain then to show. but you dont want to do it to much becuase you waste expensive nitrous but it does look cool....

Anthony- you wont have a problem running the nitrous system if you want, its just a 50hp shot at the most, the motor can handle it, but if you dont want to use it, if its a complete kit, i will buy it off of you for double what you bought it for plus shipping...
