    Because NHRA says you need two of them.


    And you would be in the poo if the one you had failed or fell off for some reason.


    Other than that, the one you have is fine.

      One will work, but fail NHRA tech as noted. Also - you have the wrong spring, in the wrong hole, on the wrong part of the throttle lever. You have the 4bbl spring too low ont he return bracket, and it should go to the stud with the throttle cable so it acts directly against the cable's pull... Not on the lever for the anti-deisel solenoid.


      Not at all. Winning with a self-built car is most rewarding. If anyone could, it wouldn;t have the reputation you're feeding off...lol

        maybe not winning so much but this is the favorite part of my car. I have friends who have their Chevy Novas and so forth that they've taken them to shops to have the motors built and put in and tested for them and there roll cages welded in for them and pretty much everything done for them so they can go drive the car. Or I have friends that just by their cars that somebody else has put their sweat and tears into and brag about how they got it cheap. I prefer to have my car blow up or do something completely wrong and I've done it myself and let anybody else touch it. And the people I'm talking about are just old high school friends not the actual people I race with they all build their own cars.
        So , agreed . ...

        I love the rewarding comment, especially when I tell those same people I'll take that car and beat your ass with your own car... LOL

        I'd rather drive a 400hp car with a 200 shot than a 600hp car on the street. We'd still get to the end of the track about the same time.

        Power is power regardless of method. Fear is a real byatch sometimes! :)

          Oh boy #-o
          LOL , and back to the op's original question - If he stumbled into a boat load of $$ and could buy an edelbrock dual quad nitrous kit what are the hidden parts and considerations ?

            You will need another fuel pump, regulator and all the line to hook it all up, a smaller fuel cell would be the best way to go, that way you can run good race fuel with the nitrous. A bottle warmer is a must if you want to keep any kind of useable pressure in the nitrous bottle. My first time out I did not have one, spent 30 minutes getting the bottle warmed up each pass. A blow off valve vented outside is also a good idea, I believe you need one at the track if the bottle is in drivers compartment. Not sure if a pressure gauge comes with your kit you are looking at. As far as timing goes, no cost way is to retard timing by hand, unless you have a programmable ignition box or can add a timing box, like MSD has. Also if your rpm at the stripe is already maxed out now, you will run out of gear on nitrous

              Good stuff, thank you for your time and experience. I do already run 100LL and have an extra outlet on my fuel cell I'm not using.
