I'm going to be running nitrous, most likely a 75 shot. My car's current build (230whp) is:

Engine
Injen CAI (insulated)
Blox 6" filter w/ velocity stack
P2R TBS w/ gaskets
TSX TB
P2R IMG
Go Power drop-in cams
skunk2 header
Go Power 3" exhaust
DIY injected motor mounts
NST pullies
Hondata FP
RDX injectors
Denso iridium spark plugs

Suspension/wheels
Tokico D-spec adjustable gas shocks
HFP springs
2x camber bolts in the front (aggressive autox setup)
Progress RSB
5zigen FN01RC
Dunlop Starspecs


So far I have the ZEX WET nitrous kit with a bottle warmer, safety blow down tube, solenoid/TPS.




I also plan on getting/doing:
RPM window switch ($165) http://www.shop.speedunlimited.com/p-3314-zex-82085-nitrous-traction-control-rpm-window-switch.aspx
Lean shut-down switch ($99) http://www.dynotunenitrous.com/store/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=67
Wideband/AF gauge ($222) http://www.aemelectronics.com/wideb...og-face-770?osCsid=ir5qcqnnu9rmdqendnanvfcol6
fuel pressure safety switch (suggestions?)
ZEX rapid-fire purge with red LED ($170 for 2 on ebay) http://www.shop.speedunlimited.com/p-3238-zex-82370-r-red-rapid-fire-purge-light-kit.aspx
Direct port kit (I need help finding one that isn't a V8 kit) (suggestions?)
Fuel pressure regulator (needed?) (suggestions?)
Fuel pump (I was looking at the ZEX inline fuel booster, what do you guys think? Will this do the job?) ($190 on ebay) http://www.shop.speedunlimited.com/p-3358-zex-82020-booster-inline-fuel-pump-kit.aspx


Gauges Which are the best/look cool/needed
PSI gauge
Fuel pressure gauge (recommended?)



I'm looking to add essentials and/or eliminate things I may not need on this list
I'm taking any suggestions/comments/advice. Any help is appreciated

Build looks fricking amazing. If your doing a wet kit, I don't think you need an AFR gauge. All I'm running in my setup is a PSI gauge. BTW this thing PULLS with a 75 shot like no tomorrow

autometer has always been my personal choice due to cost and looks. defi gauges are prob. one of the best out there but you pay alot for what your getting.

I had an aem wb in my wrx and it works perfect and is one of the cheapest you can buy.

I'll look into that, thanks

I found this one: http://www.shop.speedunlimited.com/...sports-3737-wideband-wide-band-o2-sensor.aspx

Should I get the AEM one that comes with a gauge? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/AEM-...ptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

WRONG lol.

The most important thing are the safety measures needed with nitrous. Lean shut off switch could save your motor and it would also be useful if you ever go FI.

The zex kit already comes with a built in TPS. However if I can't find a direct port plumbing kit that DOESN'T come with solenoids, maybe I'll get the dynotunenitrous kit and NX CF solenoids to pretty up the engine bay :thumb:

My ****'s all gunna be tucked under my nice big powerchamber haha.

I run the Zex kit myself actually. It's in the shop now. Once it's back I should be pushing 300+ with spray hopefully. It was 275 last time so lets hope a header, flashpro, better intake, and the final tune will add 25 lol. But its a new dyno so idk if it reads higher or lower.

Yea the kit came with a heater (in the pic). I've heard ZEX only heats to 900psi? is that true?

A remote bottle opener would be great, but probably the last purchase I'll make

What I still need to know:

should I get the Fuel pressure safety switch (and if so which one, links appreciated)

Do I need (and by need I mean I'm going to run every safety feature that will help me not blow my engine) a fuel pressure regulator? (which one/links)

I'm going to get a fuel pump seeing as how I'm already running 410cc injectors, but where should I get one? will the Zex inline fuel booster do?)ZEX 82020 BOOSTER INLINE FUEL PUMP KIT

And a Direct port PLUMBING kit for a 4 cylinder (preferably without solenoids)

I don't have a Fuel Pressure safety switch OR a fuel pressure regulator ...YET. I'm not sure how much they will be needed with the lean shut off switch. I'm on stock injectors too.

injectors make no difference when running a wet kit.
you should be adding any fuel necessary by the jet size in the fogger.

You won't need a fuel pump if you are running a wet kit at a 75 shot. The stock pump will keep up just fine with the flow of fuel required.

Well I mentioned that I'm running 410cc injectors to make the point that I'm using more fuel as it is without nitrous. My stock injectors were near max. This is why I'm wondering if I should upgrade my pump/add one.

How does this lean shut-down switch work? (I know it shuts down nitrous if you get a lean condition) but how does it hook up to my nitrous that it is able to shut it down?
