Hi guys.. So A customer of mine owns a 300hp turbo d16z6 which ive tuned multiple times and its doing very very good in the drag strip. He just needs a little aid going a little faster and his turbo is maxing out at 17psi. Everything is very tight and i really dont want to modify all the darn thing to fit a bigger turbo, a new exhaust and whatnot.

Basically, i thought about installing a 50hp nitrous kit.

So Wet or Dry? Totally Dry?.. Why? cause i can fully neptune it using outputs and stuff, and its easier to install.

So what brand?

Ive looked into Zex dry kits.

But... i dont know why they advertise the kits like... ONLY FITS MUSTANGS.. OR ONLY FITS s2000? wtf? Cant i mount it wherever i want? Whats all the jazz about?

Anyways, basically i want a recommendation on what kit would you use on a turbo car, and all the other things that might not come into the kit and that are really needed.. .like... heater blanket, no2 gauge etc...

Price isnt an issue.

Let me know your opinion guys!

Thanks!

you should be fine with a zex kit using a 50 nozzel . there should be no issues other than maybe pulling a degree of timing .. the kit is cheap and will serve its purpose from what your saying he wants ..

you can get a kit from nos without all that bs .. i thought you wanted all the extras and thats why you mentioned zex .. i think there specific because of solenoid and line location not the actually nozzels or anything ..

I use nitrous express. If you have the injector room, i would do a dry shot. What turbo is maxxed out at such a low hp and psi?

Start with a 50 and go up to 75, id needed. I would pull about 2 degrees for a 50. It will add more like 70hp. Nitrous and turbo is fun.
Thanks for the advice.

Regarding the turbo.. a small apl240 masterpower. It starts loosing psi's at 18 wastegate spring pressure. Its not hp rated but psi rated since it comes in stock cars. It is rated 20psi. At 18 it starts loosing pressure.

Thanks for the input about the nitrous express, and yes i do have inyector room... I dont have any problem in tuning it, i just need advice regarding what kit and what add-on's to add.

So i will check nitrous express too.... What add-ons would you recommned? heat blanket? no2 gauge? etc?

Pressure gauge is important. Also a bottle heater would be nice to keep a consistent bottle pressure, so the shot is similar everytime. I would get one that has a pressure switch, so that you can just set it and forget about it.
Any brand to recommend? (bottle heater with pressure switch). THANKS!

Bottle will always come empty, Nitrous isn't something that can be shipped around in freight!

The bottle heater that cycles based on bottle pressure is great, but still get a gauge on there to verify it, in case the heater sticks on or something.

If the car is being raced on a track, safety regulations may require a "racer safety valve" and blow-down tube that exits outside of the vehicle, just in case.
