    Default Just a Bit worried

    Guys can you give me some info on this. I just added Nitrous to the boat and my boat guru mounted the Nitrous bottle very back left about 1 foot away from the headers. My question is should I be worried about anything blowing up on me?? SCOM was over here the other day and we had this discussion. I'll put up some pics later today. Any info would be great.

    Thanks

    Did you ask you "boat guru" why he put it so close? This way you won't have to wrap it with a heater.

    That was my opinion. I think as long as he runs water through the headers he should be ok, but I still don't think it's such a bright idea. If it was under the bow it would be too difficult for him to remove to refill.

    If the pressure get to high it should just blow the safety relief.

    Ultra is correct, it will blow the safety relief and vent all your NOS into the atmosphere. One foot from the header is to close IMO it well add excessive heat to the bottle and raise the pressure. Sometimes before the pressure blows the relief it will stick the solenoid.

    If you are going to keep it that close build a heat shield for it.(IMO)

    i would run it under the bow for three reasons one its away from the hot headers, two its out of the sun the first two would cause a increase in pressure from being in the heat and cause it to blow the safety release and then you lose $50 on a bottle fill up, and the third when you want it on you dont have to climb all the way to the back of the boat

    this is where mine is, although i have no back seat, probably put a towel over it if im going to be in the sun all day. can you get a pic of yours up here? hard to tell if its too close to the headers depending on the space you have in the gunel wells.

    man, you might wanna get a fuel pressure safety switch and put it up there by the fuel solenoid if that thing gets low pressure on the juice, its not gonna be pretty, especially with a single carb tram.

    This happened to us when we were going thru the channel at Havasu. The bottle was back by the headers, relief blew and it was loud and scary. My dad tells my mom to take me and my sister(9 and 6 years old) out on the bow (the deck was HOT).We're freakin out. He figures out what it is, "Ah it's just the nitrous". The bottle was eventually moved under the bow.
