    Nitrous? I dont believe there are any direct bolt on applications for it.

    As far as rigging something, i dont believe anyone here has even attempted it

    We installed a ZEX GT kit on our V6 project car and went a best of 12.79 @ 105 at FFW Norwalk.

    Heh..."nitro" refers to nitromethane.

    "Nitrous" refers to nitrous oxide.

    The two are WAY different. If someone has a V6 Mustang that runs on nitromethane, I want to see it!

    Does the 05 V6 use a returnless or a return style fuel system? If it's return style, you could fab a "dry" kit to work pretty easily.

    Can you give us any more info about what you did to the car besides the nitrous? Did you beef up the engine or drivetrain? Do any work to the suspension?

    Thanks pwrhws, do you know if these parts will be available anytime soon on your website, or if there is a catalog somewhere? Just curious bout getting some pricing together.

    Also, the 165rwhp base seems kind of low compared to what people are gettin on these boards, was that done on a mustang dyno?

    Sorry folks "nitro" means nitroglycerine in my line of work. 12 sec times, I'll need nitro to keep the chest pain down! LOL..

    Mike has been around the boards for a while. This is not the first car (nor the last) that his LLC has modified. He knows what he is talking about.

    In my part of the engineering world, I consider him a new day Boyd Coddington. :hail2:

    Welcome Mike. :nice: I have had my eye on your little shop for a while! Nice, quality work. I have always been impressed with the cars you reengineer!

    Jennifer

    P.S. Hey Mike, does "SoxFan" still have the S/C Mach1? That thing was a monster. :D Nice work on adding the Custom Tune and I was very impressed with it as Kenne Bell S/C project car. Must be niceto have all the equipment and technical help necessary to pull some of this S!iT off :nice:
