I talked to craig at NX and he helped me in piecing it together and pricing it

First get the N-Tercooler kit and they will replace the intercooler ring with the lines/fittings/jets for free ($441)

http://www.nitrousexpress.com/produc...ils.php?id=695

Then get the Octane series controller (a must) ($400)
no need to buy switches becasue the controller handles all the switching, all you have to do is jumper the RPM and TPS signals from the JB3/DME
This is the piece of the kit that sold me on NX for sure!! Great find FBIS!!
The only problem is that the controller can only display 1 0-5v sensor apart from wideband, RPM, and TPS. Therefore since you need it for the pressure on the bottle/heater to automatically regulate optimal pressure, you cant use it as a 0-5v boost guage. Oh well, can't have it all I guess

http://www.nitrousexpress.com/produc...ils.php?id=247

The you get the automatic bottle heater for FREE ($200 value) only until March 31 so hurry if you want to do this soon.
and they will throw in the transducer to make in work with the octane controller for $30


Finally you need to get the remote bottle opener to have fun on the fly ($287) optional but worth it

http://www.nitrousexpress.com/product-details.php?id=76

I don't see the need for anything else in the Gen 2 accesory kit (fuel cut-off switch or blow down tube) but if you want you can buy the fuel cut-off switch seperatly for $50, not sure about blow down tube

I also don't see the need for a purge system on a 35 shot dry kit from what I have read on the internet and the conversation with Craig at NX, other than the ricerish look of blowing off NOS and waisting $$$ NOS. But maybe its for some. Plus NX and the experts at LS1TECH.com said its realy only for wet shots to get the vapor out of the system. Its not a safety concern but rather cleaning the line to get NOS ASAP, maybe .01 seconds faster. If your already putting the dealy on it from the controller, whats another .01 sec ???

Shipping will be about $30 says NX and the will also give a package price if you buy all this stuff, didn't ask specifically but he was open to the idea, I'm thinking something like $30-$50 off. Craig also told me that the are currently working on putting together a dry kit for our Beeemers with good pricing based on the recent interest from our community Thanks to FBIS awesome writeup and sales job

Another great thing is that their kit include lifetime warranty, not sure if the whole kit but the important pieces like the controller and Solenoids I did ask about.

For this kit I also think you should definatly buy a wideband digital sensor like an FJO (~$350)
for the extra safty with the controller for lean and rich run possibilities.

So Total for ~90ish rwhp is
$441 kit
$400 controller
$30 Shipping
$0 bottle heater
$30 pressure transducer for bottle to controller
$30 discount (maybe)
$911 for a real safe kit of NOS

optional
$238 bottle opener
$50 fuel switch
$350 FJO digital wideband wideband
$?? blow down tube

Hope this info helps your decision, becasue I know I was lost on what this stuff costs
1500 for a complete kit for our cars to run it safely...Thats alot of DOE

Blaizon, I completely agree. NX is the real deal and the power was quite surprising to me too.

Slick, good foot work, but I think the FJO is going to be cheaper. Not everyone needs the logging and in fact the NX Octane Series Progressive Controller does graphically show A/F ratios as well.

TheAcAvenger, I really appreciate those comments. It is good to feel my hard work is at least helping others in the decision process. When you make the jump, let me know if I can help.

cn555ic, you don't have to run the exact same setup as me. As you can see there are a lot of choices available that you may or may not need for your own setup. With that said, 92 rwhp is a lot of power. When you compare this to the 10-12 rwhp we get out of an exhaust for more money, you start to realize the horsepower to dollar ratio here is enormous. Maybe second only behind your tune.

Since some were interested in a DIY on the Nitrous Express Automatic Bottle Opener, I ordered one and will have that review up in a week or so.

Great review, very informative!

You may just have convinced me to go with nitrous.

Any chance you can post the model numbers of the items you purchased? I'm on the NX website and there are so many different items I'm unfamiliar with and everything is a bit scattered.

tviera24, thank you for the kind words and I am glad it helped!

I am not sure on the exact part number on a bunch of the items because I ordered the wet kit and gen.x 2 accessory kit and I didn't need everything. What items in particular do you need part numbers for? I will see if I can get them.

LOL! I have been travelling a lot lately and just haven't had the time to write any reviews lately. I thought about doing a BBK review, but just haven't had the time.

I knew you would like the nitrous. This is a great platform to run it on.
