I have a Harris Speed works wet kit that I'm going to install next weekend. My plan is to install the bottle in the rear hatch where the t-tops go as I have my amp and subwoofer back there with enough room for the 10lb bottle. Where do most of you run the line to the front of the car? The instructions say to run the line along the bottom of the car but I don't have a clue where to run it. Just looking for some idea's. Thanks!

You can either do in cab or out of cab. For in-cab just run it under the carpet up towards the firewire and through to the engine bay. For out of cab, which is how i went, I drilled a hole in the passenger side (and later figured out I shouldve done in on the driver side), ran the line behind the gas tank, up the lip of the gas tank to get over the axle, and ran it through the rest of the car by following the path of the fuel lines. I wanted to run it through the passenger side until I saw that the exhaust pretty much took any space up over there....:emb:

mine bottle sits where the rear passenger seat used to be, run the line through one of the plugs in the floor, just cut an x in it and pushed the line through. Worked like a charm.

Go through the fenderwell plastic, then pull (go under) the passenger side rocker trim and go through the hole next to the heater core and under the PCM. Makes for a nice clean install.

Sounds like it (clean install). I did it like 021less, only my bottle is on the hump. Then it runs between the floor and the Kenny Brown double diamond subframe, so it's protected pretty well.

This is how I did it also. However, setting aside the rules, I would run it under the carpet rather than under the car. If you drive the car a lot on the street the nitrous line is going to get dirt ugly.

One day I would like to wrap and insulate that nitrous hose, especially once it gets inside the engine compartment.

yeah my car gets drove maybe once a month, so it don't ever get dirty. One of these day's i'm going to move it to under the carpet, just haven't felt like doing it. lol

Same here, but for now I'm leaving it. We could put some plastic wire loom covering on it if worrried about the dirt.

My line runs under the carpet and through the firewall. Just find an extra hole in the firewall to use.
