Nitrous gurus in here

Well at the moment my truck is stock but have been tossing ideas around on how I want to build my truck. Been thinking about running nitrous to use on the track. So far I have come up with dry kit is the best and .80 jet is the biggest to run. What's a .80 jet come to on HP? Will nitrous clean up smoke any cause more or make no difference. What's the best rpm range to set the nitrous to kick on? I'm sure I will have more questions.

The size of the jet you run really depends on how much fuel you have. With a stock truck a .80 with be about right but it is smart to start at about a .60 and work your way up. You can tell when you are injecting to much. you times will be slower and sometimes it will pop. If you are running a single stage most people just use a WOT switch and hit it off the line. Others have a hand held switch and hit it after they leave so they can shoot a bigger shot but most who do that have large injectors and spray a bigger shot. Dont worry about the HP rating on the jet sizes they are for gas motors and it wont be the same on a diesel.

What places sell complete kits? I have been making a list of everything to get total price and check diff setups and see what I like more. I may go injectors if I find a good deal since I will already be that far into motor

Zex, Nos, Nitros Exspress are a few off the top of my head. I have a Zex kit and they are the best bang for the buck and NX is the best quality. Nos kits have been known for bad parts.

I'm partial to zex since I'm a mustang guy and that's the top kit most people run. Does the nitrous effect the smoke output or anything? Are there any company's that have kits for diesels? How's the nitrous effect the motors? I assume I would need a specific tune just for nitrous but will it matter if i change jets?

I DO NOT have diesel Nitrous experance. However, I have nitrous experance (a tad). We have been having luck with the the Zex kits for lower HP levels (when I say lower, I mean we dont have 700 HP cars).

My 03/04 Cobra and new Shelby friends run the NX kits on their cars.

Yes the nitrous will clean up the smoke. It allows for a complete burn of the fuel when used correctly.

When you say "other company's kits" do you mean like diesel companies? TS has a kit but its expensive. The diesel kits that Zex sells are universal.

Good on the track I want as little smoke as possible. For other company kits I meant like if zex made a kit for Ford powerstroke or certain motor. Like some company's make a nitrous kit specifically for the 4.6 mustang.

No they are not motor specific. The diesel kits are universal.
