    The nice thing about nitrous is that it doesn't affect your day to day driving. You still get the same gas mileage until you need a hit! It doesn't cause any extra wear when not in use.

    /agree.. but when i put nitrous on my 95 5.0 i kept my foot in it.. go ahead.. say it.. you know how it is... you'll pull up to the red light and think.. oh, i'll just hit it once.. lmao!

    I got about 50 redlights between my house and work. That equals about hmm... let me think.. divorce mpg? LMAO!

    UNLESS.. i haven't considered this.. (as married people get half their brain destroyed) your single.. in that case.. take my advice...

    BUY ALL THE DAMN ADD-ONS/MODS YOU CAN AFFORD!!!!!!! Make it go as fast as it can so you can like me say "yes, i know its only stock, but i USED to have a 95 5.0 with ALL THE GOODIES that got 8mpg and was HELL ON WHEELS. Being able to say that makes me happy. :)

    Do the SCT-2 for sure. It will change the way you think about your car.

    Man, i think MSP might beat me to it, but i really want it now lol. I was never a fan of nitrous until the new v6 (even though i have it on my 01gt, but it was a $900 kit). I always use to say bottles are for babies... so umm....

    GAA GAA GOO GOO gimme ZEX!!!

    wow... Glad to see your little problem worked out!!!! When I read your other post I was like "How in the world can Jimp not notice a difference!" Now Lidio has driven som e incredible machines over his long career... but even he was grinning from ear to ear during our little test drive! LOL!

    One thing you guys may want do think about is the "racer's package" or "kit".... Includes Heater, purge, gauge and saftey blow down tube (important if you go to the track)... It runs around $290 to $300... We've got the purge in... need to cut the hole for the blowdown tube and then run the wiring for the heater...


    I'm sure Jimp and I will be rubbing it in.... I mean updating you guys (and gal) regularly... LOL

    Side note... Not a single wrench light yesterday...

    Hope that's the end of the error messages for you scrming. I already have a pressure gauge and blowdown tube. I still want to get the bottle heater before it starts getting cold and a bottle blanket.

    It appears to be... no wrench light yesterday or today! I really think it was how we had the wire run... like it was picking up feedback or some stray signal... LOL!

    Soon for Jimp means, its already been shipped.. Or its under his blanket in the room already.. :D


    Be nice once he does have the detroit locker in, if he could use a 30MM camera to have his wife or friend take a shot of the front tires showing some air.. LOL!! That would be all she wrote! :nice: Guess you would need slicks for that though.. You plan on getting some Draglites or some type of wheels for the track later Jimp?

    Once I get the NOS and the rear-end put in, I am going to get a set of Weld Draglites, for the runs at the track.. I want to go so bad I can taste it..
