didn't get to work on it at all last night, but the night before i pulled
the fuel sender cover and ran the nitrous line from the trunk to the engine
bay using the harness that the fuel lines are currently in (i lucked out...
there was an open space on my harness and the NOS line popped right in. only
2 zip ties from front to back, mostly because i'm paranoid). there's a rear
brake line that hangs down below where the NOS line will come out from the
fuel sender cover... run the NOS line *over* this, not under it, like i did
also mounted the relay that connects to battery, microswitch, fuel sensor,
and arm switch, but didn't actually wire any of these accessories up.
i'll warn you that the fuel pressure sensor might be a pain in the ass.
finding parts to make it jive with the rest of the fuel system is a bit
difficult... right now i need a male/male union that is 3/16 inverted thread
on one end and 1/4 inverted thread on the other so i can hook everything up.
but, once that's done, all i have to do is cut about an inch out of the fuel
line next to the air box, pop in the t-junction i bought, and wire it up to
the aforementioned relay. the easiest way to do this would be to get a 3/16
inverted thread female/female union, but i was unable to find a fuel barb
connector with any kind of 3/16 on the other end, hence the size step-up.
the bottle has its brackets on and is sitting in the spare tire well, but i
still need to screw it down (carefully, as the fuel tank is right below the
sheet metal i'm mounting to). i'd suggest mounting your bottle on the far
left of the trunk... i would, but i've got an 8" tube subwoofer there.
also, kit 05123 as set up with the .36 NOS jet and the .42 fuel jet is a
60-shot, not a 50-shot (according to the manual).
