SEMA 2013: Nitrous Express Unveils New Gear for Gen V, Ford & More
Nitrous plates for the GM’s new Gen V platform, including the Corvette’s LT1 engine, are available from Nitrous Express. Both feature “Spraybarless” technology to improve atomization and distribution. The billet plate bolts between the throttle body and intake, and on the truck application the solenoids are integrated into the plate for a clean look. Installation is simplified further with a direct plug-in fuel-line adapter, which means there’s no need to cut into the factory fuel line.
“The system also includes a TPS Autolearn,” says NX’s Ryan Lewis, adding that the nitrous activates only at WOT and automatically turns off when the driver lets off the accelerator pedal.
Jetting can be set for power shots of 35, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 200 and 250 horsepower.
“We have applications for the C7 Corvette and both the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter truck engines,” confirms Lewis.
Other new nitrous-plate applications include Ford 4-valve Cobra Mustang and Nissan GT-R. All the kits come with the necessary hardware for installation and options for the bottle size.
Also new from NX is a pumpless direct-port water-methanol system.
“Normally you need a pump to inject water methanol,” says Lewis. “This system uses pressure from a nitrous bottle.”
The NX system injects water methanol directly into each intake runner. Included are a pressurized reservoir and pressure regulator — all of which eliminate the need for an electric pump.
New billet crossbar plate systems ready for both 4500 and 4150 footprints are available from NX. The CNC design integrates nitrous and fuel discharge ports into a billet divider bar. This setup eliminates the possibility of a rotated spray bar and promotes excellent atomization and distribution.
“It’s the first new plate design in some time,” says Lewis. “It does a much better job of fogging the intake.”
Other new products in the Nitrous Express SEMA booth included compact distribution blocks for applications with limited space, carburetor-plate solenoid brackets and custom switch panels for a clean installation.
“These panels integrate nicely into the dash,” adds Lewis. “You don’t have to worry about where to mount the controls.”
