    I want to see your installs.

    Since I pulled the trigger on a kit, I want to see how you guys are hiding your kits, clever places for switches gauges etc.

    Couple years ago , I put my coils on the side of the oil pan. Make the install and engine bay much cleaner.
    Since then, I've seen a few others do it with success while looking good.

    Plus, the addition of the turbos caused more heat under the hood, with the coils being mounted low, they don't get hot.

    Nitrous kit, not turbo.

    I shoved my 10 lb bottle under the dash on my car, and ran the nitrous line through the fender well behind the liner. No one ever found it, but then again that was my car.
    GET OUT OF HERE WITH THAT RICER MATH!

    im wanting to put the switches in the overhead console thing, or get a factory fog light switch, probably be easier to install, but i prefer to drive with my left hand...

    mine isn't really hidden, but its pretty clean


    I used a 6pin weatherpack connector to help keep the wiring clean and for ease of uninstallation(tired of cutting solenoid wires)


    And my switches are where the fog light and accessory light would be.

    I obviously didn't try to hide my kit at all. I don't pop my hood for anyone, and I don't hide the fact I'm spraying. But this is where I have stuff. (pics are pretty blurry, i guess camera phones don't like being whipped off the tailgate)




    this was before I wired it. I'm actually in process of bending hard lines because the flex lines are just TOO long/ugly.


    just picked one of these up last week. I had switches in same area, but the cheap autozone switches look....cheap. Think this looks lot cleaner.
    blown transmissions are about as useful as 97% of the guys on this forum

    I'm not concerned about hiding the underhood stuff, just like getting ideas for a nice clean electrical install. Nothing worse than ugly ass switches just hanging out. I forgot about the foglight panel, and that Nitrous Outlet panel is pretty clean. Might look into something in the ashtray too
