Ok guys (and girls), i've had a few requests for this so i figured i would do a write up with mucho pics. Keep in mind i did not take pics throughout the install so these are completed pics and i WILL forget something so feel free to ask questions.

List:

-ZEX wet nitrous kit (set at 75 shot)
-ZEX nitrous pressure guage
-NGK 1 stage colder plug LFR6A-11 (Sparkplugs.com)
-MSD digital window switch (was on backorder forever)
-Dynotune dual purge valve
-JEGS fuel pressure guage (mounted to custom fittings)
-multiple parts from the HOME DEPOT (god i love that place)

First off i decided after talking with MANY people (including ZEX,nitrous express, NOS) that mounting the bottle in a horrizontal position was not optimal but would still work for my purpose (lets face it ... i'm not that hardcore). the internal pick-up works fine as long as its turned the right direction.

and here is a view from the back... now ... i do have a false floor made for my stereo and that is what it is bolted to (i know i dont have a blowdown tube ... working on it).


i then ran the nitrous braided line down through the floor and under the car attatching it allong the brake lines (there is a spot next to them in the factory clips that it fits in (dont have pics trust me).

coming up through the engine bay on the passenger side it crosses behind the plenum (if you have a good eye you can spot the black wireloom).

Then going into the brake reservoir area. This is were is gets confusing. Its not so bad when you are doing it but it looks like ****.
WARNING: you do have to be very inclined on how wiring works. this is not for the light of heart.
you can see the nitrous control module (purple) with the purge mounted to it. along with the MSD digital window switch. first pic is with the outside trim piece still on and the next is all of it removed.

as far as mounting the nozzel i wanted it to be clean so i cut (i know shut up) out a section of the aluminum divider between the engine bay and the brake compartment so that my nozzel could go into the side of my intake and also be hidden by the cover (this took cutting th cover a bit too).

probably the most difficult part was the fuel line tap... the T that came with the kit was nice but not what i wanted and the SPX fuel adapter was so hard to find and also had to be modified so i just went to HOME DEPOT and got brassfittings to do what i wanted (you DO HAVE TO CUT THE FUEL LINE :icon16: ). oh well... pay to play right. i then made it to adapt my fuel pressure guage and also the fuel return line as you can see the purple fitting here.

it works quite well even though it makes people cringe.

Once all closed up and finished it makes for a pretty clean install

The purge i had wanted to do forever and some may call it rice i call it nice and have gotten nothing but :icon28: and compliments on it so here it is... its a dynotune dual purge with slight modifications to the output nozzells (home depot again). the come out at 45degree angles from the front bumper.
here is a close up shot.

The switch was easy, i just put it were i could reach it... left is the nitrous arming switch, and right is the purge (sorry its so dark)

And thats it... feel free to ask questions and also to leave comments ... have a nice day. here are some parting shots for you picture freaks.
