I ran this on my truck a few weeks ago. I thought it was a very nice kit. The programmable throttle switch is a nice feature.

They include a .105 jet in the kit but the original hose is only dash three and will support .79 jet at best. Thanks to Ratlover for pointing this out.

I called Zex and gave them the info and it was my understanding they would correct this in the future with a -4 line that has -3 fittings on it.

You can see the effects it had on my truck in my sig.

Even with the -4 hose with the -3 fitting, that will increase the inside crimp tube to .093, still below the .109.

Also the 1/8"npt to -3 fitting they use will most likely be around .093 unless they modify it before packaging.

Just out of curiousity, what was the solenoid orifice??

Actually the -4AN line with a -4AN fitting on one end and a -3AN fitting on the other has a inside dia of .150. Check it out. This is what I supplied in my kits. The nozzles were then opened up to .125 dia (same dia as the solenoids in the kit too). These solenoids only required 15-18 amps to open. The .156 dia solenoids required about 30-32 amps.

SD,

Thanks for the correction, after thinking about it, I ended up grabbing a hose and checking.

Have you check out the combo-flo valves??

Only problem is they can't be pulsed, but other than that, there's really no disadvantage to running them. before its mentioned, you dont need to run a seperate co2 setup for it......

Aren't those combo-flo valves just adding another level of solenoids to the system? From their site "Compact electrically operated actuator valves open the Combo-Flo™ nitrous/fuel valves". This is an electrical solenoid that controls the CO2. Maybe I'm missing something, but this just adds a level of complexity?
