Those are 2 very different boxes.
The first is a window switch with a timing controller in it that doesn't do progressive control.
The second is a progressive controller that doesn't have a timing tuner(but can have one added) has a lot of higher end features.

In my opinion you would want the first one if you just want a small shot and don't want to mess with the tune all the time. The second one will give you more options for dialing in traction on big shots or no prep stuff.

Does the mini boy act as a window switch as well?

Let me know if you have any questions.

my setup is a LS1 with stage 2 heads, trex cam, build 4l60E w/yank ss4000 full bolt ons and a TNT F1 nitrous kit that i haven't used yet. Im looking to spray a 100 to 150 shot of nitrous. I also have a racetronix fuel pump but I'm looking at buying a standalone fuel system for the nitrous to avoid leaning out

the NOS Mini 2-Stage Progressive Nitrous Controller looks pretty legit. would I have to have 2 different tunes (N/A and one for spray) with this controller?

You cant pull timing with the Nos mini as far as I have seen.

You can purchase the separate box for pulling timing or make an IAT/ECT tricker to pull timing.

We have a test unit in here right now being put through its paces. If all goes well, we should have it ready by late June.

It doesn't pull timing but we also offer this box that can retard timing as well:

http://www.nitrousoutlet.com/electro...ontroller.html

We can provide you with wiring diagrams on how to wire these up to communicate together and retard timing only when the nitrous is on. With this box, you don't have to have HP tuners or take your car back to the tuner every time you want to change horsepower settings.

The pro max screen is optional. It makes things a lot easier, so that you don't have to have a laptop to make changes. With the screen you can make real time changes right there at the screen without having to mess with anything else. We will also have nitrous and fuel sensors available for it to monitor.

Use NOS mini and pull timing using Red PCM Pin #53, ignition retard signal in HP tuners until the new N2O outlet unit comes out.
