older zex kit on new ram
 
im gonna borrow an older zex kit from a friend and attemp to put it on my truck. The problem is his kit isnt for a fly by wire setup so im not sure if im going to run into any problems or not. I was hoping someone here has already done this and had some pointers. :smileup:

what's all included in the setup you have?

redlightmike 05-31-2013 10:35 PM

Im gonna pick it up tomorrow so ill have to get back with you on that.. i know for sure it has the control box, bottle, lines, purge, bottle heater, and i bought the hemi fuel line adapter

chefred112 06-01-2013 03:12 AM

if it has a control box with the solenoids then it's a wet kit which is pretty safe and easy to install on a hemi...fuel line connects where the shrader valve is on the fuel rail...do you have a wideband so you can monitor fuel trims when it activates? also, for security sake, are you running colder plugs (ngk 4306's) as well as a 180 tstat?

i mounted my box on the firewall..

I do have a 180 stat but i havent changed plugs yet. Is it nessasary for only 100 shot? I looked at the plugs you listed and they say tapered seat, mine is a flat seat plug

The 4306's fit just fine, and yes, you need a colder range for anything over a 75 shot. I was running 2 stages colder for my 150 shot with a 13.4 CR.

yup, 1 step cooler for a 100 shot.... I have had friends blow motors for not running the right plugs, its very important.

Im spraying anywhere from a 300 to 500 shot on my Charger and I use Brisk Plugs. They are a great plug if you plan on using nitrous more or start upping the shot some.


Also, if you are going to keep the bottle that close to you (Which Im not a fan of), I would get a pressure gauge for that bottle. I've had a bad disk on the blow off valve before and the bottle hit a certain pressure and blew up in the car..... luckily this was on the dyno but you never know
