Nitrous tuning is much simpler than a turbo set up. Dry kits I recommend an adjustable fpr,big pump and colder plugs. Same for direct port kit very simple.

i believe that uberdata now has a script for nitrous, if you wanna go that route.

check the uberdata forum to see how it works.

i would put cold plugs in, retard the timing a few deg. at the dizzy, and maybe put on an adjustable fpr and turn it up a bit, just get a wet kit and it'll be cool with the cold plugs and retarded timing....

yeah, uber has a nitrous script in the works, but it's not 'officially' ready for use yet. however, instead of retarding at the dizzy and losing bottom end power as well, you could run a stock map with uber and only pull timing at wot when you would be spraying, and or whatever rpm range you choose. pulling a couple degrees of timing is the main thing with nitrous, other than that, it's 'pretty much' plug and pRay

I use to be a huge nitrous fan have a built way to many set ups. Your best bet for a typical street set up is stay under a 65 shot, -4 degress of base timing for a 65 shot -2 for 55 or 50 also a good kit not a rigged together special. Fpr, fuel pump, colder plugs. Oh I never blew a motor or any friends customers car on nitrous with these basic rules

i'll actually be putting my car on the bottle prolly in a week or two, as soon as i get all my friends cars out of my car port and have time to work on my own :P i'm a little to strapped for another turbo kit right now (what i'm looking to get anyways ) so i figure the bottle will hold me over for a while.

i had a 50 shot wet setup on my d, then my b. i didn't do anything about the tuning other than retard the timing a bit as mentioned above. i ended up having to replace my clutch pretty quick. i have a complete custom kit including bottle warmer, purge kit, bottle guage.... i'd love to sell it but no one seems to want it. it includes all the wiring, relays, all you have to do is hook it up! everything is labelled and still connected together so putting it in would be a snap. maybe i should advertise it again.
