    i running a spec R motor gonna be getting a set of skunk2 stage 2 cams w/ retainers and springs. has any one ran nitrous with that set up? is it a good idea to run it when the cam timing has been advanced? only plan on using a 50 shot. :spin:

    Yes, you can use nitrous. Make sure to RETARD your timing, and definatelly use a colder plug like Zex.....

    just make sure with the wet kit that you have everything on their real real good - it would suck for the fuel line you spliced to split open and spray gas all over your motor and catch fire.

    a purge kit will release the stale n2o from the system, it'll be for both kits.

    a purge kit actually releases air bubbles from the system, so when you hit the switch you get a constant "stream" of proper temperature nitrous.

    If you even think of doing a wet shot, I'd recommend just getting a direct port kit and plumbing it into the underside of your intake manifold. Do that or get the fogger plate that goes between the manifold and head.....

    this might sound stupid, but does the purge kit shoot some other gas threw the lines? if so, you have to fill it as well right?

    no the purge kit shoots nitrous through the lines. it is used to get gaseous nitrogen out of the llines.

    Here's how it goes. On a nitrous kit, when you open the bottle, it shoots nitrous through the line to the front nitrous solenoid.... The solenoid is what blocks the nitrous from entering the motor. It is electronic, when you "Push" the nitrous button, it engages the solenoid, allowing nitrous to go into your motor. After you use the nitrous and turn your bottle off, there is still nitrous in your line between the solenoid and bottle. Nitrous in the bottle is in a liquid state, and when it sits it turns into a gas which isn't as potent. The purge valves purpose is to release the spoiled nitrous oxide into the atmosphere to allow fresh nitrous into the line and prepare the car for the shot.
