    Default hey who run nitrous, got a quest.???

    i've got all my wiring done, retards work like they should and all i''ve got left is to mount and wire the steering wheel. have 2 stages of nitrous to operate and using 2 buttons isn't gonna be easy. soo what i'm getting to is : does anybody make a double throw button? 1 that will toggle the 1st stage, then press it down alittle further to hit the 2nd stage? be nice to just mash down alittle for the 1st, then push on past a spring or something to get to the 2nd. i'm using grounds for the relay activation.

    what do you goes with 2stages do? think i remember seeing cs19's wheel with the popoff control etc., but 2 buttons , 1 on each side is gonna be hard to control. my 2nd only operates if the 1st stage is sprayin already.

    any help or ideas would be appreciated, just looking for a better way than just 2 buttons.

    A lot of guys run a RPM window switch. You can set Stage 1 to activate at 3500rpm, then Stage 2 to come on at 4500rpm for instance. Neither would do anything if you don't have your momentary thumb switch engaged, press the button and bingo - at the right RPM you get the shot.

    Also could use a throttle switch for the 1st stage and put the 2nd stage on a button

    No, no "double throw" buttons. Imagine trying to push a button down half-way, when the ENTIRE travel for it is 1/10", or even less, now add water chop.

    Double throw TOGGLE SWITCHES exist.


    Can't see an RPM "window" switch to be worth a damn on a jet boat. No resistance to the RPM wrap-up.

    I can't see any use for 2-staging on a jet boat anyhow, unless you run it on a time controller (in a drag race). Something like 1st on after a 2 sec. delay, then seccond on after 4 secconds.

    But that's from the button-less guy with a toggle switch.

    Yea, that could be done too, but IMPATIENT doesn't trust the switches reliability enough. Has to have it on a button.

    Why a double Shot and not just a longer shot that increases volume?

    cave, just looking for some education.

    These work well. We have sold and installed several of them.

    i have to agree with 2 stages on a jet boat,but that means nothing hell its your boat.


    tom 2 buttons bro.or a time delay
    a wot throttle switch will work okay for 1st stage if its not alot of juice so pump doesnt blow out.then push button for 2nd stage.

    either way hope someone helps you out with the question bro.

    On the two stage question we ran one for two seasons ; two 150 shots.

    First stage was on a throttle switch, second was on the wheel. Never had a problem with the throttle switch.

    Decided simplify the system and go back to one large shot.

    How big are the shot's ?

    I never had a problem with a throttle WOT switch and toggle switch setup either, for 27 years (1979 to 2006).
    Solenoids finally quit (Nitrous one finally refused to open under pressure).

    Newer hardware worked beautifully last summer, same setup

    If you have a decent amount of nitrous on the first kit you dont want it coming on with a WOT switch, it will likely blow the pump away (cavitate) and park it on the revlimiter, not good while on the bottle. If you set it up to come on with some delay (timer or something) after the micro switch is tripped that could work for the first kit then grab the 2nd with a button on the wheel. Or just put 2 buttons on the wheel. There are endless ways to have the kits come on at desired times after the micro switch is tripped, you could fine tune when each system comes on and off after the switch is tripped, the car guys are heavy into that stuff. Might check yellowbullet.com. i think Edelbrock makes a neat timer that handles mulitiple kits.

    Rpm window switch is a bad idea.

    Listen to CS, I think he has some pretty good experiance with nitrous and jets!


    For further info, I would suggest calling Steve Johnson @ Induction Solutions (815-341-8853)

    I have talked to him a couple of times on the system I am planning to install. He is a great guy and one of the sharpest nitrous guy's in motorsports. He will be more than happy to assist you with any question about tune-up or triggering and it doesn't matter who's system you are using he is more than happy to help.
    He can give you great advise about the Edelbrock timing system Chris mentioned as he developed it for them.
