View Full Version : Nitrous fuel line routing

04-24-2007, 06:30 PM
I am having difficulty coming up with a clean looking fuel line split to my nitrous fuel solinoid.

See my current set up:

I plan on converting to AN lines.

Does anyone have any photoes of a nice set up?

My issue is mainly with slpitting the fuel line.

I though about mounting a carburated regulator on the inner fender, but then you have to run 2-3 ft of line and it might look sloppy.

I am also having vapor lock issues with this set up. You can see I am trying to issolate the problem with heat wrap.

Heres mine...I added a fuel pressure gauge and a low pressure switch that opens the ground circuit to prevent activation when the pressure drops below 6 psi. You can also see the full throttle switch on the side of the carb in the second pic.

SHMOOV69 that's pretty over the top.

Should I run a regulator instead of the fuel line splitter?

I am running a mechanical pump.

You mean there's another way?? :smoke:

Is it better to use a 2 port regulator instead of the type of splitter I have?

I need some picks of some simple power shot systems like mine.

This one's pretty simple...

I would rather run a regulator instead of just the splitter. Also, I would be carefull that the filter does not get clogged and starve the system of fuel, that would be bad! Also, be carefull if the pump is a stocker, sometimes they are not the most dependable in supplying adequate fuel.
But it should all be ok with a powershot and not too much timing! Oh, and good gas.
If you want to make sure it is ok, another way is to get a cheapie electric pump and a lawnmower gas tank (make sure it has at least a 3/8 outlet). Then mount them up front somewhere (in front of the core support works well) with a wire running to your button or microswitch. Then you have a seperate system and prolly won't ever starve the engine of fuel. You can also run good gas (110 octane+) and keep the timing at a normal level since you are adding good fuel and it shouldn't ever rattle!
Good luck!

Fishtail8, thanks that is what I needed to see.

SHMOOV69 thanks for the info and the laugh with those pics.
