    Hey, you found something. That’s what diagnosis is all about. None of us can pretend to know everything. Nice work.

      I would be surprised if that doesn't solve the problem.

      Checking for obstructions to the nitrous supply line should be routine maintenance. Run a nitrous filter and a manual shut off valve that is within reach of the driver. Not only
      does the trash keep the n20 from flowing but also can keep a solenoid from completely closing. If that happens you will be the first one to know! Glad you found a likely culprit.

        Agreed. And I find it's probably going to liberate him. Let us know how you progress. Is this plate kit on a dual plane intake?

          Plate on a single plane. Wondered why the 150 shot felt slower than the 100.

              Just because I don’t know, what kind of crap do you get in a nitrous line? Figured since it’s a gas there’s not much to cause a plug?

              Teflon tape, aluminum bits from the AN fittings, dirt, and rust.

                Thanks, never thought of rust. I guess you could aluminum bits if you disconnected the lines a bunch. Imagine the orifices are pretty small.

                Usually it’s crud from new lines and fittings that are not blown out/cleaned prior to installation. And as said above Teflon tape.
