There are several 4th gens running nitrous and it will be very straight forward if you want to do it. A wet kit from Nitrous Outlet or Zex will get you started, pick up a bottle heater, A/F gauge, purge, and window switch as well. If you use a nitrous plate, I'd pick up the Nitrous Outlet plate or pick up an Arrington nitrous throttle body.

The ZEX kit is very straightforward to install, the NX, NOS, or Nitrous Outlet takes a bit more hose to get it installed.

Very cool, that's an awesome deal for a kit. If you need any help just ask, I've installed 2 kits in the last couple of weeks, but it is really straightforward. Which window switch will you be using?

Not sure yet. Have any advice on a good one. And how long does it take you to do it

I'm staying tuned on this thread, been thinking of running a 75 shot, I too have a guy wanting to get rid of his zex universal kit for $250 but I have no idea on the wiring, haven't even looked at it/into it.

Everyone look up a kit called Brand X. Its made by nitrous outlet(nitro dave). It is a very good kit. Top of the line. We have used them on previous cars and are awsome. The kit for our trucks is only 425. I plan on getting one when i order a kit.

If anyone has questions about the wiring let me know, I've istalled 3 of these kits on hemis now and learned a few tips along the way. The kits are all pretty similar, the Zex kit is the easiest to install, but the rest are straightforward.
