I have addressed these in order as you posted them. I hope they help.

1)what wires do I need shoties or standard.

You can use the stock wires. They will do the job just fine.

2)what plugs do I need and gap.

That will depend in part on a couple of things. One, how much nitrous do you plan on spraying?
Two, which tune (87 or 91) do you plan to use?
Three, do you plan to do so on pump gas?

If you are going to be conservative and use 125-150 shot and the 91 program using 93-93.5 pump gas then one step colder than stock will be fine. I would personally close the gap on the plug .010-.015 on the plugs as well. Each combo is going to be a little different due to things such as the brand of plug used, fuel octane, timing, total shot and your altitude above sea level.

3)what fuel do I run and what program on superchips.

Again this will depend on the kit. One must be VERY CAREFUL when it comes to this question and here is why. There are N2O companies out there who rate there total shot (example 150-HP) in RWHP vs. FWHP. So make sure you know which your N2O brand of kit does. Having said that, you should be able to run a 150-hp (FWHP) shot on the 91 program with some good 93-9.5 octane in the tank without any issues what so ever.

4)I want the zex kit and were is the best place to get it from, good or bad

I have never been a big fan of them but I do have customers that like them and I do commend them for building a unit that is simplistic and all inclusive in its use and construction.


5)what important components do I need. Heater,bottle opener,throttle switch what else.

The following items are always good to have. Dedicated relays for system and bottle heater. I always recommend either a progressive unit or window switch to those that are new to the N2O game. Running your N2O off of your TPS and RPM ensures that you don't do something that can cause premature damage to your engine by forgetting to let off a button or getting on the rev limiter while still spraying the engine.

6)I want to keep the price under a 1,000.00 bucks is this possible.

Yes it is. It is just going to take a little bit of comparitive shopping. This is what I was able to find in about 5-minutes of searching the net ZEX kit ($600.00), bottle ($100.00) warmer, relays ($50.00) and window switch ($150.00).

A couple of things to remember - Make sure to read your plugs. All the gauges in the world can't tell you what a simple magnifying glass and a spark plug can, they just don't lie. Don't get greedy, keep it safe and you will be fine. Hope all of this rambling helps.
