Nitrous Installation sucks

Just wanted to put that out there. When you add regulators, filters, and spray bars you have issues. I have wasted a 2.5 lb bottle just trying to get the plumbing right. Now the solenoid wont operate right. It wants to stay open. Rant over

There isnt for instructions. The solenoid is my big issue right now. I have not even started all of the wiring yet. Thats gonna be the real bish. Its a MPS spider kit. Im adding a pressure pro reg, bottle heater with auto switch, Dyno Tune multi function controller, and a few other odds and ends.

I have blown it out both ways several times. The tape it took to attempt a seal on the crappy azz threads of the reg. is the likely culprit. All 4 jets were clogged too.

You are so right about that. I put in a spider kit last week on a 14 and it came with NO instructions. So I go online to their site and only find 2 pictures and NO instructions. Good thing I do all of my own wiring diagrams and window switch setups.
Make sure you have the valve ported correctly for IN and OUT.

It is right. Alan is gonna help when I get to the wiring. I spent this am at Humphrys getting the lines made the right length. The fittings on the reg and filter are all different sizes.
