I have a HSW double inlet gas/nitrous plate that uses 3an fittings. My plan is to use two 3an>4an hoses to a "Tee" fitting with (2) 4an male fittings and a 1/4" female fitting. I'm using a isolation solenoid and am considering hard plumbing the two together. Anyone who has done this and has suggestions I would greatly appreciate your input.
Thanks,

Edit: Ordered the isolation solenoid and some "Juice Boost". Located some fittings on the internet, but think I'll talk to my engine shop before plumbing the injection plate. Kinda thinking of mounting the solenoid onto an aluminum plate with the "Y" hard mounted to the solenoid and two hoses going to the plate. This way the solenoid will be what converts the 1/4" hose (water/injections) to 3an (nitrous)fittings. Anyway, thinking out loud.

Update: Installed the U/D pulley and while I had the radiator out I installed the pump and did a little plumbing. I have a isolation solenoid and ordered a "T" fitting that will screw into the solenoid. Then I'll just connect the 3an hoses from the "T" to the plate. Should have the rest of the parts Monday.

Sunday update: started assemblying a few pieces and had a problem with the activation switch. Turned out it was a boost switch not a vacuum switch. They sent the wrong switch in the kit! Anyway looks like I'll get back on track as I sent SNOW a email explaining the problem and got an answer back saying they would correct the problem. Sweet.

Update Monday: This going slower than I first planned for. But I have my controller built. It will be activated using a rpm window switch (3500 rpm) and the vacuum switch. The relay on the left operates the pump and it triggers the relay on the right to activate the "cutoff" solenoid. Each relay has it's individual power. I got the hoses today and should have the "Y" fitting Wednesday. This all mounts behind the K&N filter box out of sight. I used the window washer bottle and the pump is mounted on the inside the right fender,

It's an experiment I started 30 years ago. With the neat kits that are now available I thought I might give it a try again. I have about 4 degree's of timing being pulled in the upper rpm's using 93 octane. I'm trying to eliminate all kr or timing being pulled. The side benefit is that I might beable to run 87/89 octane on the street without kr. If I can handle tuning and it works in a controllable manner I hope the next step will be to up compression. I'm controlling it to turn on using rpm (3500) and vacuum (indicating load). I think this is enough but I can also use throttle position as part of the switch parameter. I can inject water, which does nothing but cool the inlet charge. -20 windshield washer fluid (cheap), which is less than 50% enthanol will cool and boost octane levels. Boost Juice which is 49% enthanol and formulated to provide maximun octane boost and cooling. And finally Nitro Boost which is added to Boost Juice as a power adder. Enthanol has a octane rating of 116. I find this interesting but time will tell how well it works.

dumb question, but why cant you just add more fuel to your map where it's pulling timing? or pull back the timing there?
