Nitrous 101...Which kit is the best?

Well I hav ebeen contemplating getting nitrous for awhile now and after seeing all these nasty times with the 310 tune from Spartan and the fact I won over a grand at the casino today I thought I would go ahead and get a kit... A few questions though...

Which brand of kit (Zex, NX, ect...)?
Which type (single vs. dual)?
How big of a jet? (I have the 250 now but when the 310 comes out I will have that)
and exactly which kit do you have and your opinions, experiences, and times would be great!

Thanks guys!

Zex are good quality, priced fair, and easy to install...I can tell you that.



TOP DOG SUPER DUPER guys with more money and a big ego usually run NX, or NOS.

So Pahrump you would suggest a Zex Dual Stage or Single Stage?

And Colton have you had any experience with NOS kits?

Matt has the ZEX dual stage....the single stage will do what you need/want to do. But the dual setup is not much more, and theres 2 bottles...etc...


Cause if you start spraying that .88 jet at the track, you will empty a bottle QUICK. I think I can get 3-4 passes out of one bottle.

I will say that if you add ANYTHING, IMO a bottle warmer and a gauge is the best thing to add over a purge or any other fancy stuff.....bottle pressure is key to making good passes.

Yup agreed.

the only thing that i know different is that aaron has been running the single nx stacker4 set up on his truck because it has a bigger solenoid to flow more nitrous, as much as a dual kit i guess, but two bottles never hurts bottle warmer is your best friend and a guage as well. and yes zex kits are nice and the price is right my buddy has one on his 12v and it works great.

Ok i have a question as well, im working on getting some nitrous parts and one of the bottles this kid has is a carbon fiber bottle, is there any advantage or disadvantage with these like bottle temps ect? im picking up the kit for almost nothing so i figure i cant go wrong but mayb this will help some who are looking into it as well.

you can use pretty much anything that is a "dry" nitrous set up. If you go right to zex website and click on the diesel section you can look at the options, same thing with NX website, most of the prices on the nitrous dealers websites are about the same as you can purchase, i dont think dealers get much of a discount on them.
