Default Zex kit install 100 shot

Just like the title says gents. Okay so I snapped a few photos today of the install of what my buddy and I completed. We basically just ran the hoses all through the car and tapped the fuel line and got the jets hooked up to the intakes. Tomorrow all we gotta do is just run the wires, mount the bracket for the bottle and we are pretty much solid. So Thursday the kit will be finished with install and Friday I will be at the shop first thing in the morning for a tune. Thank you to the following Z forum members for answering all my questions Snakes709,BAHUMAT2JZ,One_Quick_Z, and JC671. I will of course post videos and dyno graphs and if they got wifi at the shop I'll try to upload it from my ipad while I am there. Any questions feel free to ask.

Zex kit bought it from Summit b/c they price matched from ebay 728
Accessory kit from ebay from Atlantic Speed which included blown down tube,purge kit,bottle heater,bottle gauge 289
Window switch bought from an LS forum 110.
NGK 1 step colder plugs from spark plugs.com about 143 after shipping.

Default Update Day 2 of install

Okay here are a few more pictures of what is going on with install. It actually works out that I am not doing the tune tomorrow b/c we still have to install the bottle bracket,window switch,bottle heater and blow down tube. We dressed it up a little today and ran some wires, put some rubber grommets in so the lines won't rub around the holes we drilled. In the picture of the lower plastic of the steering column you can see I have two switches mounted. The first one will be an activation switch and the second on the right is my purge.If you look at the picture of the right driver side intake we had to improvise and buy some metal brake line b/c the piece of metal that is included for the purge is just way to short to run anywhere in the car. As we all know we have limited space in our cars to work with. So that line runs all the way to the bottom of my car and pokes out a little at the very front. If you look at the picture that shows over the battery box area how we ran all the wires from the zex "brain" box and purge underneath the glove box and through to the other side for a very neat install. More pictures to come when the install is complete. Enjoy the pics guys!

Thumbs up Looks good bro

Hope everything works out man. Mine works fine but instead of the WOT activated I changed it to a push button activated because of the inconsistent voltage reading that wouldn't let me activate when running.

I have lots of pictures of my install just never posted because of all the negative vibe that un-educated people have about it.

In terms of how happy and bang for the buck this is. When I had my kit installed and only running a 75 shot I beat a GTM TT stage 1 370 (twice). The reaction he had afterwards was priceless.

Feel free to hit me up for any further advice. I'm always willing to help.

That's is classic .. I love the look of people's faces that drop tens of thousands of dollars on builds just to get their a$$ handed to them by someone on N20 . You should educate as many people as possible in regards to N20 ..

maybe if you didnt mount it on a piece of extra floor paneling people would give you a better vibe.

Honestly, who cares what these people say? I've been kind of bummed at the fact not enough people are running spray on these cars. Yet, you go over to the 350Z sites and it's a lot more common.

I love the idea of putting spray on our cars. I've been kicking the idea of doing it around because FI in general is pretty expensive for Z's (meaning, there is definitely a "z tax" by vendors) and I think spray just performs quite well.

Looking forward to your results man!

What would you have wanted him to mount it to?

"Hey man, that wood mounting is cheap. You should have mounted it on a carbon fiber diamond studded mounting board and then dipped the whole thing in gold. Anything else is uncivilized."
