I heard you can run a NOS dry kit with out the jets because the solenoid wont flow over a 150 shot. Is this true?

I doubt it too. I'd find me a ricer and tell him it'll work and to try it. Keep us informed.

A guy on LS1TECH said the solenoid's on a NOS dry kit is to small to flow over 150. He also said a bunch of guy's on there has done it. I'll get some more info and let you guy's know.

They dont make a 150 for my kit, plus I was just wondering if it was true or if anyone has done it, what kind of luck did they have, did they **** it up. Why waste money on jet's if you can just take the jet out?

Here ya go:
Dual .028 = 75hp - 15% = 63.75rwhp
dual .030 = 85hp - 15% = 72.25rwhp
dual .033 = 100hp - 15% = 85rwhp (mine came with one .032/.034)
dual .038 = 125hp - 15% = 106.25rwhp
So with these known NOS numbers we can see that every .001 jet size increase equals 2.5hp at the crank, .002=5hp and so on. Now we can do the math and get a close baseline rear wheel hp shot that we want. Every engine/car set-up is different, so the only way to get an absolute 100rwhp would be to jet it on a dyno. Hope this helps. In the beginning NOS did include the .038 jets, but...

Its actually closer to the 175 HP range before they cant flow any more nitrous.. this of course is due to the oriface of the small little "purge" solinoids with the kit. With upgraded solinoids and "T" fitting you can go much higher on these little kits. Much over 200 and you get into some real funky problems due to fluid mechanics, and the way EFI works in general. There are ways around this as well but it takes some electronic work. Had alot of experience with BIG dry efi kits.

I wouldnt try nor reccomend the !jet trick, but It has been done and will work.. just not the smartest idea in the world. Not only is it hard to guage the shot size it has all sorts of neat repercussions with pressure and flow.

True: yes
wise: not hardly
