Even straight sideways is better than what you have.

Next...safety. Get a blow down tube in that thing. If the pop off vent goes while you're in there you're in for a world of hurt. That bottle packs enough energy to do this:


Blow down tubes are cheap and easy to install...don't get hurt or killed just to save a few bucks. I've been drag racing for over 20 years...I've seen some gnarly nitrous mishaps up to and including a bottle going off in a car as it pulled out of the track. Screwed up 2 guys pretty bad plus the driver crashed the car when it happened.

Nitrous is a lot of fun...you have to treat it with respect though.
I agree with you about the bottle position, but I chose to mount that way due to it being a cleaner install. Also, these trucks do not pull enough G's for the liquid transfer inside of the tank to move that much. The hydrostatic pressure on the liquid inside of the tank is great enough for the mass to want to be at the bottom of the tank. If I was running 9's, then it would more than likely come into effect. I could work out the exact acceleration required for the liquid to move out of the siphon tube location, but dont really feel like going through my fluid dynamics books. (I'm a Mechanical Engineer grad from Georgia Tech)

That picture of the f body has nothing to do with a blowdown tube. All the blowdown tube does is redirect the nitrous that gets expelled from the tank in the slim chance that the pressure exceeds, i believe about 1800 psi. All modern tanks have a burst disk on the valve and will burst, just shooting the "juice" all over the cab (still wouldn't be fun) That f body had a faulty tank, Just because it blew before the burst valve did. And it looks like he didnt even have it strapped down.

All in all, I agree with you that I need a blow down tube to prevent the slim chance that the burst disk does blow and spray nitrous throughout the cab. BUT don't scare people posting a picture of a demolished car saying that it was a simple failure to install a blowdown tube.

1st....leave your fluid dynamics book on the shelf. I don't really care what it says. I'm pretty close with Mike Wood...owner of Nitrous Express. I'll take the word of the man that owns a nitrous company over your textbook. We've had this discussion in person. It's not a lot of liquid when the bottle is low and it WILL move away from the siphon tube....period.

2nd...I never posted that a burst disc failure caused that. I said the bottle has enough energy to cause that to happen in an enclosed vehicle. A disc popping off without a blowdown tube can release enough pressure in a closed vehicle to blow your eardrums. That's a fact. If you're driving down the road when it happens, bad things can happen. That's another fact.

I wasn't trying to scare anyone so don't twist what I said. I'm using my real world experience with over 20 years of messing with this stuff up to and including working on Nitrous Pro Mods to inform you and anyone else reading and considering nitrous use to do things right. Hopefully your personal safety is more important to you than getting pissy on an internet forum.
Don't worry though...I was 24 once too. I knew everything then just like you do now. Old guys like me that have actually done this stuff, not just read about it in textbooks don't know anything.

Have a great day.

Listen man no hard feelings. I'm just saying what I know, from education and experience. I too have been around drag racing since I could walk. I was driving a super pro camaro that had a 455 Dart small block with 900hp shot of nitrous when I was 15. I Have my super comp and top dragster licenses. I do agree with what you said, I just know that some people will look at that f body and never again think about playing with nitrous.

PS, I'm not an ignorant know it all 24 year old...

I ended up using 3 1" LED strips from some ebay company. I just had to find something that gave the right amount of light off. I tried using 1" glow stick (FAIL) and led shoelaces (another FAIL). I have everything tee'd into a single 3 way switch (hood and underhood). This way the can be on ignition power until I'm parked at a show and I can flip it to constant power, so I don't have to leave my keys in the truck. I then have another small switch under the hood that controls the underhood leds. So I can drive with the hood on and leave the underhood off, until I'm at a show or something.

Jeremy provides good service. He did mine as I didnt have the balls to attempt it.
That said, I want to completely black mine out...how difficult was it to paint the chrome bowls without having and runs? What did you use?
