Hello new member here, Im trying to see if anybody has successfully run a wet kit on their 4th Gen and if so what failsafes did you run?!

As of right now i have:
NX Mainline Wet Kit
Purge Kit
Bottle Heater with PSI Activation Switch
Fuel Pressure Sensor
All the Cool Buttons
RPM Window Switch
Dis-Tach MSD RPM Adapter to make the window switch work

I'll try to take pics of all the stuff i have so far.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

well i ordered a new NOS Progressive mini 2 stage controller

I like the idea of this, its a 2 stage controller so ill activate the fuel solenoid just before the nitrous solenoid is activated to counter act the usual lean dip that happens when Nitrous is sprayed. The last dyno run was 396whp and 512 tq of course not in the 1:1 gear (4th gear is 1.41:1 = 412whp532wtq). Nobody talks about that either, I mean correct me if im wrong but if we are all dynoing our SHO's in 4th then we are underrating the power that it would actually make in the 1:1 gear ratio. Anyways the goal is to put down 500 to the wheels with the juice, I think id be a happy camper... for at least 10 minutes til i get gapped by something new. I got my HPFP and EPP Hardpipes on last weekend and the goal is to get my PETE717 Intakes fabbed up and the nitrous stuff put on.

So after some back and forth with the tuner im still waiting on my tune i put 50 shot jets in for a cash days last night heres a video of me and a gto that was making waaaaay too much power to be racing in the 350-450whp class. GTO had cams intake exhaust and a 75 shot, for some reason at like 65mph it'd fall on its face i think a trans related problem but either way the Tortuga just trucked on and passed him right before the 8th mile

Sandbaggers are everywhere. LOVE IT! If he had an auto the 4L60e and its derivatives are all mierda.

Now you have me looking at the new progressive controllers. In the past the bottle was pretty rough on parts and we would split shots up. Ive seen some run 3-4 stages. No better intercooler though and cost effective.

Nice run btw!

So we had a big race event in Albuquerque this last weekend its called ALL OUT CALL OUT, its a "street race" style event. You sign up for different classes, i signed up for the Street Fighter Class which is 14.1 to 12.8, its an instant green tree and you cant run faster then 12.8 or you break out. i went to test and tune the night before and ran launching pretty hard 12.7 and a 12.8 on a little softer launch, so i figured id make my last pass on a 50 shot spraying all the gears. I was thinking itd make a mid 12.4 pass but i was delightfully suprised with a 12.2. So now the new goal is to crack a 11.7 with the 100 shot, and ortiz tuning for it.
