Its simple, but like everything takes a little bit of know-how and a lot of reading up on the nitrous system you'd like to use.

3 years ago I knew nothing about nitrous when I purchased my first kit.

Once you get the jist of nitrous,you won't run without it. I love it. I like running nitrous better than running blower motors.

NOS will make one run NO DOUBT !

I think the orginal poster got some good info.

i am still left concerned about HIS DOUBLE regulation of the Nos Fuel line..

other than that he will be set.

Two things you CANNOT screw up in ANY NOS set up is Timing and Fuel..both end at the same disasterous road.

Timing- "When in Doubt take it out"
Fuel- "Better FAT than Foolish"

SB2 406 small block ran this good, what am I missing?????
Those carb jets are lean. Depending on altertude etc I'd be running 90-92's. 1100 psi is too much. The nitrous will be turning nearly 100% to gas. Should be 900-1000 psi. You should be running cold plugs with that much nitrous - 9's or 10's

Know the feeling. I'm running a 634ci with 650hp nitrous on two stages. Done a 7.06 at 192mph. Just bought a Neal Chance aluminum convertor. Should break into the 6's now. YeeHaa!
