i thought that a dry set up was really bad unless you upgrade the fuel system to keep it "wet" and prevent burning up heads and such?? this is from those who know more than i (DY)GTOYACO said:While I don't have it hooked up yet, I got with a shop here that I have dealt with for years that specialize in nitrous systems. He hasn't done a GTO yet but many LS1 camaros and vettes. He recommends a single nozzle dry kit before the MAF. NOS doesn't make a specific kit yet but with an aftermarket CAI I don't think that makes much of a difference anyway.
A dry setup works by injecting the nitrous upstream of the MAF, which makes the computer read more air, thereby increasing the amount of fuel from the injectors. Problem I see w/ running a dry kit on the GTO is that the MAF is so far away from the throttle body. On the F-body it isn't as much of an issue, since its a straight shot to the throttle body.GTOdriver7 said:i thought that a dry set up was really bad unless you upgrade the fuel system to keep it "wet" and prevent burning up heads and such?? this is from those who know more than i (DY)
The instructions say to mount the nozzle in the intake tube 2 to 6 inches before the throttle body it says the actual spacing is not important.Sam 04 GTO said:That was my thought, the charge may not be as strong having to travel that far, but then, I'm no expert on nitrous, just familiar w/ the basics.
I have a dry kit. this is probably why they say to put 2 step colder plugs and get rid of the platm. plugs so it runs richer. This is also why they say to run a timming retard if you have a program with timming advance.GTOYACO said:did you get a wet it or a dry kit? difference is you have both fuel and nitrous being injected with the wet and only nitrous being injected with the dry.
With the dry kit it would need to be mounted before the MAF or else the computer would never know to increase the fuel to the fuel injectors...
nitrous + no extra fuel = BOOM!
