Introduction: How to Install Nitrous Oxide

About: I love teaching people how to diagnose and to work on their vehicle, also showing them affordable ways to modify their vehicle without breaking the bank.

Nitrous Oxide is an easy and affordable way to give your vehicle some serious horsepower! However it must be installed and managed properly to prevent engine damage. Before using your nitrous oxide system you want to make sure you install colder spark plugs, run 93 octane fuel and make sure your engine is in good working condition.

Step 1: Mount the Bottle and Brackets

Find a safe location to mount the nitrous bottle. Once you find a good location measure the holes on the brackets, mark your holes and drill them for the mounting hardware.

Once the brackets are mounted, install the bottle and make sure port that connects to the nitrous line is pointing down.

Step 2: Install Nitrous Line

Install the nitrous line to the bottle. You may need to drill a hole for the line to come up through. Then run the nitrous line to the engine compartment, keeping it away from heat and moving objects. If you have the nitrous line going through a drilled hole, make sure to use a grommet or put protection around the nitrous line so it doesnt get damaged!

Step 3: Remove the Carburetor

Remove the carburetor from your engine then clean the mating surface so the nitrous plate can be installed.

With the old carb removed, remove the original mounting studs and install the extended mounting studs.

Step 4: Set Up the Nitrous Plate

Decide what "shot" of nitrous you want to run, then install the appropriate jetting into the nitrous plate. Install the nitrous and fuel solenoids to the nitrous plate, making sure you tighten them properly so they don't leak

Step 5: Adding Fuel

Tap into your fuel feed line and install a "T" fitting for the fuel solenoid, this will provide the additional fuel you need for the nitrous.

Step 6: Install the Nitrous Plate and Carb

Using your new gaskets, install the nitrous plate into the intake manifold, then the carburetor. Make sure you reattach all of your hoses, clamps and other hardware.

Step 7: Wiring

Wire up the system with a 4 prong, 30 amp relay. The system will utilize an "arming" switch then a momentary switch to spray the nitrous. When both switches are pressed, it will send power to the solenoids, spraying nitrous and fuel.

Step 8: Install Pressure Gauge

Install a pressure gauge, preferably at the nitrous solenoid so you know how much nitrous you have or don't have! If you run low, or run out the vehicle will run very poorly!

Step 9: DONE!

Now get the bottle filled and start spraying!
