Pretty much finalized my decision on purchasing this kit. A few unanswered questions after searching hsw related threads. Car is a 95 camaro yet with a ls1 powerplant. Will I need to upgrade injectors or fuel pump capabilities. Also how does the interface work besides the obvious. I guess how are settings obtained and intitially set?? Is it computer based? Newbie to the LS1 world so any help will be appreciated

Settings for fuel enrichment and timing adjustment are done by the interface, no need to really d any tune work. What injectors and fuel pump are you currently using? Also any motor work done?

Simple as flipping a toggle switch! When I had a wideband motoring it, I set the Interface to the correct size, and my A/F ratio was pretty much spot on at 11.7-.8

Also, check out this thread before you order... ;) It is mine, barely used, for sale.

I've got HSW's wet plate (same kit but with the addition of fuel) and love it! I'm thinking of eventually converting it into a dual stage dry plate but that won't be until all of my other projects are completed.

Dry shot after the MAF with the interface really looks simple and effective.... I too plan on going this route. A wise man once said "Keep it simple stupid!"

It is! I drilled several holes in my lid trying to find a good position but it was always lean.

Ordered an Interface, installed and put nozzle behind the MAF, perfect a/f! Done!

I am definatley interested. One other quick question. Your website calls for a 78mm tb application. Technically our throttle bodies are 75mm. Is your kit a direct fit??? Will my stock ls1 injectors and fuel pump be sufficient??

No internal motor work with the small exception of heads have upgraded springs/retainers, hardned pushrods and am currently running a tsp 231-237 cam.

Do you have a fuel pump addition/upgrade? Witht heads and cam setup you'll need extra fuel for the nitrous kit to stay safe and reliable. At least a 255 pump and hot wire harness are basic upgrades to what you currently have.

I didn't get a purge kit for mine. It will only effect the first pass, or if you are worried about it just when doing your burnout hit WOT(to activate the juice) for a split second and "purge" the line.

And when you are doing racing just carry a wrench around with you and loosen the line from the bottle just a little bit and let it leak out.

Saved money! No need for a purge kit!

Definitely get a bottle heater. I bought the DynoTune/Nitrous Outlet digital window switch. But that was before HSW came out with the MicroEdge which is really nice.

The microEDGE would be your best bet for a controller. The list of features is just astounding for the price they are being sold at. You made not NEED it, but it would be a great piece to have in an effort to make your kit as safe as possible. I would suggest a bottle heater and a purge. With your kit its much better to regulate nitrous pressure and make sure the line is cleared. as for injectors it depends on the sized shot you are running, but 42lbs would be ideal. They support a good amount of horsepower. I would recommend a A/F gauge, but that can wait till later if need be.
