    Default Bottle placement question

    So will it be alright if i place my bottle this direction?
    Will it affect my nitrous shot under acceleration?

    Thanks

    Trevor.

    Been like that for 2 years now, just facing the other direction.
    I wanted to turn it around so i can read the PSI and turn on while driving.

    The bottle has a suction tube in it running to the bottom of the bottle and curving toward the bottle outlet, running it like that the liquid will uncover the pickup tube, in other words it won't work that way.

    Why don't you try mounting the bottle alongside the seat on the outside of the seat, just a thought

    You could maybe fab up a mount to go between the stringers.

    I made a platform that my billet bottle mount was bolted, later welded to that holds my bottle beside the passenger side seat. I can see the psi gauge, and the bottle is angled right. My platform has a 2" angle piece welded on that bolts thru a side support of the hull. I have seen others bolt a sheet of aluminum under a seat that sticks out enough towards the side so the bottle bracket can be bolted to it. Just ideas...

    Good idea, thanks.
    Where did you get your front seats, David and I are thinking about going that direction.
