Why is a hidden panel of switches so damn cool? Maybe it’s because they make for a clean install or maybe it’s because it makes sandbagging so much easier, but either way there’s no disputing that it’s some James Bond stuff that just screams trick. Which is why Nitrous Express’ new nitrous panel for the C7 really caught our eye.
The switch panel and gauge sits right behind the the infotainment screen which raises and lowers at the touch of a button. This means that most of your nitrous system can sit out of sight and out of mind of your competition. However, if you happen to get into a skirmish in which a bit of the giggle juice might be required to seal the deal, all of the necessary switches and gauge are within arm’s reach.
What’s more is the gauge and switch panel is only $79.99 (PN 15793). Now, that is without the gauge of course, but the 2 1/16-inch opening allows you to mount the nitrous bottle pressure gauge of your choosing. Each panel includes switches for arming the system, turning on the heater, opening the bottle and purging the system. The gauge is easily seen from the driver’s seat as well, ensuring that you’ll know what’s going on with your system at all time.
The panel will fit in any 2014+ Corvette equipped with the infotainment system and literally mounts in seconds. However, all of the wiring will have to be run to the location, so keep that in mind. But if you’re looking for a badass way to keep your nitrous system out of sight, there’s no better option than Nitrous Express’ gauge pod switch panel for the C7.
