Is everyone out there running a bottle warmer when spraying? I completed my install, however I don't have a bottle warmer at the moment. I'm very hesitant to spray nitrous without a bottle warmer. I interested in every ones experience in with this. To start with I only plan on running a 50 shot. I have the NGK 2315's gapped at 30 based on what I've gathered from some of you all on the forum.

Thanks BoostedScat..... I didn't run it, but I wanted to sooooo badly. I'm getting a warmer, and all of my bottles have a pressure gauge. I'm also going to get one for the interior to monitor things.

From my experience with nitrous, you really waste your fillup by running at too low of a pressure. I ran it on an old Pontiac and once at Maple Grove, my heater wasn't working right so I could only get pressure up to around 750. I only picked up around .3 to .4 from my 75 shot. I replaced the heater and went back the following week. With pressures in the 1000 range, I picked up a full second. That's a big difference in power for just a 75 shot.

I might have a Nitrous Outlet warmer for sale if you're interested. I'm switching from dual bottles to single and have remote opener, heater, etc.

How much are you asking for the heater? I've been looking at ProNitrous.com warmers, just not sure yet?




Thanks Prector555, as always your insight is valued by me.

Just an Update, I listened to Prector55 and didn't run my system until I had a warmer. Full disclosure I still need to buy an actual warmer, so for the interm I used a propane torque. I was able to get the bottle up to 1000psi, and man what a difference. My first run N/A was a 13.90 on my Atturos. That wasn't bad considering I matched my best 50 at 1.95 leaving way low in the rpm range. Second run with the bottle at unknown pressure I ran a 12.87 at 108 mph. What a rush. The third and final run of my night, I broke out in the first round, but went a 12.33 @ 109. This was the run with the bottle pressure at 1000 psi. The hit was clean and the banging of gears was smooth, the DR's hooked amazingly (considering I'm in a M6 and hammer them at 4500 to 5k launches). I'm hooked on this power adder deal. I'm sure it will do better with a better tune, and more testing. Thanks everyone for all of your help.

yea a gauge & heater are a must if you run the psi to low you'll be running fuel rich.
