4th Gen Nitrous
 
Okay guys got to the point to where i want a huge performance boost. Since i have a 4.7L 2010 regular cab RAM not much Big performance gainers are available (supercharger/turbo ect.). This being said i decided to go after the nitrous idea. These are my thoughts. Please correct me or help me out. I can use all your opinions and suggestions, that be great!:smileup:

I want to go with a 100 shot window switch from 3000 rpm to 5500rpm. Since a diablosport device "should" allow me to retard my timing ill also have to purchase a predator. I am unsure about the colder plugs is it 2 degrees for every 100HP? I'm new and uneducated to this lol.

What else do i need? what safety devises do i need to purchase along with the nitrous system. also what brand is good to go with. And what are you all's thoughts on this whole idea.

Thanks!

if you get a zex wet kit..your probably good to go except for colder plugs (ngk4306's).. I run a 150 on mine and i haven't changed anything on the tune side (just colder plugs)

If you run colder plugs then you don't need to pull timing, however I would still pick up the programer and use the 87 tune but run premium. I also agree with the zex kit with the window switch.

Not trying to say your wrong fred, but I'm not sure if you're familiar with the plug setup on the 4.7L. They use different plugs on the lower and upper banks. Lower are iridium and upper are IIRC nickel? I've been told by many people not to F with this lol. I'm not sure what the plug you mentioned is but just wanted to throw this out there.

What if he runs the 87 superchips tune with colder plugs on a 100 wet shot? Should be ok then, right?

I couldn't find colder plugs to the oem ones when I looked. Let me know if you find them. As much as I say I want to stop spending money on my truck, I might consider following your lead with the juice...

I hearya on the 4.7's..different animal but I don't know about using specific plugs..

May be onto something here guys tell me if im wrong.

OEM plug. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BCH-FR8TE2/

Colder plug. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/NGK-2460/

Will this work?

I'm not sure that that is correct. Also, keep in mind that's only one plug, you have two per cylinder, and they are different plugs. Going from memory, I think the one you posted there(the bosch nickel yttrium) is intake side, and the exhaust side is a bosch iridium plug.

Darkknight3829 07-10-2012 02:12 PM

Yes correct that is just for the intake side. That's why I said may be onto something ha

Honestly I'd contact Bosch and see if they can just tell you what plugs are the same but one heat range colder.

After looking at the plugs on their site though, it says "oe/specialty" so maybe they were specially designed for that engine and they are only available in one heat range. I'm not sure of the effects of a different type of plug. If anything I'd try an iridium plug in all 16 holes and see how it runs(monitor mpg, etc.). I THINK the only reason they enhanced the plugs with yttrium was to prolong life. They are getting 50k miles out of a copper plug(enhanced with yttrium). Normally copper plugs only last 30k miles. I don't THINK it has to do with performance.
