    Default Nitrous plate question

    I have an adapter from my 4150 manifold to the 4500 dominator carb that im running. My question is, does the nitrous plate need to be directly below the carb or can i install it below the manifold and the spacer? If my thinking is correct, it shouldnt matter because the same amount of fuel/nitrous is going to introudced into the engine so it shouldnt matter where its at?

    There is a two fold scenario here:

    First the further away from the valve you inject your nitrous the Harder it's going to hit, and shock your system.
    Second is if you're running a 4150 to 4500 adapter having spray bars at the bottom will have them in the way and can cut off some of your air flow. It's really a double edged sword.

    Now be careful using a 4500 plate on top of your adapter the spray pattern may not be right.

    If it were me I'd flow test the plate on top of the adapter on top of the intake.

    Using CO2 (instead of N2O), and Safety Clean (Instead of gas) will give you a safer and cheaper way to flow test.

    x2 not a good idea to adapt up to a plate size. fositty, if your intake is 4150, run a 4150 plate kit. if you put a 4500 plate on there, some of the bars will get blocked by the adapter plate.

    If you don't have a way to check as Rumrunner suggests, I'd use the 4150 plate under the dom-4150 adapter. You can make up for the very slight loss in airflow with more nitrous.
