    engine SETUP.

    ZEX wet kit
    Additional Fuel Pump
    2 Gallon Fuell Cell
    Fittings and Hoses

    USE: instead of using the stock fuel system i will use JET/RACE fuel, with the WET system. Additional Fuel Pump installed before the provided piggy back system ZEX provides to the fuell cell.

    INFO: i want to know Who thinks its good/bad...extra help in producing this kit.


    it is going in an Ls/VteCrx with b16 head, stock bottom end (freshly built) spent 1,600 on refreshing block to stock with an over bore of.020

    To reduce detonation at 100shot+ and better times

    then run race gas full time on the track and tune it for the track. also have a street setup.

    the way i see it i could run race set up AnytimE with the nitrous..

    i think it would look cool in the rex, plus i have a low cr because of piston /

    Head gasket setup so i can run higher shots.

    i might be getting a Turbo charger in the next yr then i could switch to alcohol

    injection t3t4 .48/.63 ...but i really want to see if the kit would make the nitrous more efficient

    Just want to know what people think

    looks like it would work be be hard to tune the pressure from the second pump

    i think the zex system might control that but a FPR would work set at stock psi

    what do you think?

    Exactly - use the $7/gallon stuff.


    If ur worried about atomization of your nawz/fuel mixture - use the NX "Shark" Nozzle.

    Don't run water injection or you will be swiftly drawn and quartered...

    I thought jet fuel was basically kerosene? Does that sound right?

    It is right, and it has an octane rating of about 40, which goes against what you want to do. Besides, I'd pay you good money if you were able to walk into an airport with a five gallon can and say, "fill 'er up!"

    That's what I thought. It is a constant combustion prossess. The fuel get added directly to already-compressed air and is ignited pretty much instantly, so they don't need high octane ratings. Definitely not something to put in the car. I have heard normal airplane fuel (think lycomings engines) is a pretty high octane, but has lead in it or something, so that wouldn't work either. And it's like 13$ a gallon.

    They can't use high octane fuel, because turbines need almost instant combustion because of the speed at which the air is moving through the burner can.



    100LL. 100 octane low lead. And I haven't checked in years, but I believe it's around $5/ gallon now.
