Talking Sprayed my first 125 shot! Questions.

Ok I finally sprayed my car for the first time today ever. After dealing with wiring and solenoid issues for the past 2 days, I finally get it to spray. It kicks so much ***.

I have 125, 150, and 175 nozzles I can put in, with a 10lb bottle. Currently running a NOS bottle, with Nitrous Works solenoids. Since the N2O solenoid wasn't firing, we swapped it with a friend's NOS brand solenoid. I have a WOT switch, and a basic on/off switch. I have Pacesetter coated longtubes, ORY, Hooker Aerochamber, BBK 58mm TB, WS6 Ram air, NGK TR6s @ .035", MSD 8.5mm, SPEC Stage 2 clutch kit. I do want to get a N2O pressure and fuel pressure gauge inside the car.

What should I be looking into installing next if I plan to continue to spray safely?

m6 needs a window switch.
I use one on mine, and it protects you from spraying your motor if you mechanically overrev to like 7K RPM. Easy install, takes about 40 minutes depending on your mechanical apptitude. Also, a FPSS (fuel pressure safety switch) isn't a bad idea.

I'm with him....both will be able to give you piece of mind.

I would also suggest in not only a FP gauge...but a wideband to moniter your AFR's as well as data log if you have any kind of tuning software.

If you dont...I would suggest that if you want to jet up to a bigger hit, some kind of software to retard a couple degrees a timing would be smart.

Good luck

What do most people set a window switch to? 3-6k? I'm gonna get a mailorder tune pretty soon, I'll have it tuned for the 125 shot.

And is a 150 and 175 doable on stock motor?

2 important things as others have mentioned...

window switch

wide band


I do not see a 150 shot being an issue if the motor is sound and the A/F is good.

good luck

Fuel pressure safety swith would be a good idea.

and the lean shutdown switch. widebands are good, but if something goes bad reacting to it isnt very easy. ive got all three in this post

as to setting your window switch, that depends on your car, mines set from 3.5k to 6.4k. This was set while monitoring the A/F under 3.5k had a rich spike and we just simply raised the off point to help with the insane RPM ramp speed. because its a whooooooole lot faster lol

I am not running an A/F gauge or anything yet, and the motor feels like it responds well to the N2O. I want to go up to a 150, but I don't think i will do 175 until I get a tune.
