    next step in the build:)

    and hopefully the final step. i have all of the ls6 intake stuff straightened out so i ordered up the rest of the nitrous kit ive been piecing together. hopefully next weekend it will have:

    nitrous express wet kit (good up to 250 shot)
    nitrous express purge
    2 10 lb bottles
    nitrous express automatic bottle heater (based on psi)
    nitrous express bottle jacket
    nitrous express automatic bottle opener
    FJO progressive nitrous controller (freaking cool toy!)
    nitrous outlet wet plate conversion
    nitrous outlet custom switch panel

    guna start out with a 150 shot out of the hole (prolly 50% on launch and ramp it as fast as possible). zero delay or rpm windows and spray through the shifts.

    after i get the launch dialed in and figure out how the trucks guna act im guna step it up to the 200.

    oh and i still dont plan on spraying until i make 11's on motor. ill just have it installed and ready to rock

    Thats pretty much my setup. Check out the Harris Speedworks plate. I like how it works better. Its a perimeter spray design rather that spraying onto the floor of the intake manifold. You might also consider a second fuel pump in the tank or a standalone fuel system for the nitrous setup. Oh yeah, the NitrousOutlet plate will support up to 400hp if your engine/trans and solenoids chosen can handle it.

    flaco had the best run in it at 13.5 me personally not being at the track in almost 2 years i couldnt get it to hook any spun damn near 1/2 down the track.. flaco got it to hook better but still spun, well i put the vic back on figure i wont give up on it as of yet, trying to get ahold of wheatley to get it street tuned after that i'll hit a dyno, then the track once more but prepared with lowered rearend and slicks, still at stock hieght ( which the rear wouldnt squat at all). then make a decission then.. i still think theres alot on the table, anyway lots of work still to be had, then i'll give it another shot then make decissions on where i wanna go from there...
