Nitrous Activation??

I got a NX Diesel Nitorus kit with the control module and it gives me the options to activate the nitrous by throttle postion, rpm, or by boost pressure. What would be the best activation?? On our racecars ( on race gasoline) we activate it on wide open throttle by I would think it would be different on a diesel?? Any experience here would be appreciated!!

RPM window switch is the best bet for safety. That way your already moving so it's not as much wear on the drive line. And if your tranny malfunctions and you bang the limiter you can set the bottle to shut off at your fuel cut off to avoid a backfire.

Never had Nitrous on a Diesel. But I would still use a WOT switch and a window switch.
For the same reasons I use them on my gas engine.
