No reason that a 2012 should be different than my 05. So, first change plugs to 1 range colder, gapped .10 closer. Run 93 octane but run an 87 octane tune. If you have a quad or crew cab, a 10 lb tank fits under the rear seat. You will need a blow down tube and a bottle heater. Personally I like a button to spray. Of course you only spray at WOT above 2800 rpms, always let off the gas before you release the button. A purge is optional, I don't have one. I turn everything on before I get to the track and purge on the street just before the track. You should start with a 100 shot. A 150 shot is possible, but I'd blend in some unleaded race gas and might look at a Sharadon valve body for the transmission. I wouldn't ever spray more than a 150 shot for about 50 reasons, fuel supply not big enough, transmission , pistons, rods and crank will be unhappy, for a start. If you get hooked on drag racing, a higher stall, better gears and some fat sticky drag radials. But you'll be broke, divorced, etc. hehe BTW the colder plugs work fine, even in winter, and why not run at the track? Safer than the street and if you do a stealthy install, the techs will never see it and the EcoBoost and Tundra guys will still be wondering. Buddy of mine sprays his new Ram in the truck pulls and does really well against trucks that are really built to tow.

Not a good idea. You let off the gas, and close the throttle body but still are injecting nitrous into the motor or into the intake before the throttle blade? It has to go somewhere. Let off the nitrous first before closing the throttle. Or just have a swith that reads TPS voltage and only allows the system to spray at full throttle so when you let off it shuts down the power to the nitrous and fuel solenoids and stops the nitrous instantly.

I have the ZEX Hemi Nitrous set, it comes with a TPS (Throttle Position sensor) wire that mearly runs along your existing wire that makes it to where you don't get a check engine code. As well as senses when you have WOT (wide open throttle) it knows to dispense nitrous. This is more ideal so you are not still spraying when you close the blade as noted above. I would also recommend a TC Window switch that does not allow the nitrous to spray between shifts as to save your transmission a little bit. When you go to program from WOT throttle the instructions will guide you better but it as simple as turning the key on, (bottle OFF) and manually opening your throttle body to WOT and you will see the lights flash on you nitrous module.
You can google you tube videos about nitrous install and its quite simple to do yourself, I did mine in about 2 hours. I did mine fairly recent ago feel free to message me if you have specific questions, or post on here some more I know we all love helping out other Ram owners!!!

Hey Hydrex, that Sonnax line pressure kit you got…any good? I got a 3500 TC, 125 shot, custom tune with trinity, Hedman LT, and about to upgrade to 6.1 push/spring with Spartan Max cam….think I should look into getting one of them? What can I expect out of it?
