    I had some space next to the passenger, behind one of the panels...thats where I put the bottle. Plate under the carb (of course). Then I had a relay attached to a button on my steering wheel. Pretty easy to do. I wish I still had pics of it, but I went to turbos soon after a couple empty bottles.

    Nitrous solenoid brackets are home made and I used soft lines to plumb. I've change my system around numerous times so the soft lines worked great for all the different configurations I've tried. Now I pretty much have everything where I want it, so this winter I might hard line it.

    I know you're running a single carb deal Coby, but it's all the same. Mine started out as a single plate 100 hp deal. I turned it into a 150 hp twin plate by buying a second plate and splitting everything up and jetting for that. Since my carbs are side saddle I had to mount the plates accordingly. Part of the reason I didn't put the carbs inline. It gave me more room to work. Lastly put bigger solenoids on it for a 200 hp deal and had to re-do all my brackets n stuff.

    There's really no set way to do the install. It's kinda like putting a puzzle together. I spent a lot of time just looking at it and mocking it up in different ways. I wasn't interested in hiding it, but wanted to tuck everything in as tight as possible.

    It aint as pretty as the port injected deals and hard lined systems that some of these guys are running, nor work as well I'm sure, but it's inexpensive and does what I need it to.

    Passenger side







    This is the driver's side.



    Close up of the driver's side. This bracket does double duty. Fuel solenoid, fuel pressure gauge, fuel regulator.



    Here's a couple when I was mocking stuff up for the single plate on a dual plane. Note the fittings on the plate are front to back rather than side to side like on the newer dual plate photos.





    Had myself convinced that I needed a dedicated fuel system. Way over kill for the little 100 hp plate system. The fuel tank is now my puke tank.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    That's a nice clean setup. Sometimes wish I had gone the route of a Victor junior single plane and a 1050 dominator rather than the tunnelram. It definitely plumbs up cleaner.

    This article in Hotrod is pretty good. It doesn't all pertain to our smaller systems, but a lot of it does.

    When I first started messing around with it 10 years ago or so, there wasn't a lot of information out there (at least that I could find on the internet). It's much better now.

    I have a Super Sucker spacer plate (4 hole) that I would like to use under the carb! Should the plate go below the SS plate or on top?
    Mine will not be as clean as yours but I can change a little at a time!
    Nice looking setups that you two have!! WT

    Double that.

    Two carbs, two spacers, two plates. Six gaskets.

    Between the two of us we should keep Mr. Gasket in business for a while.

    I've been looking at the Zex plates for some time and like the theory. Have you had any other systems to compare it to? Now that I have a cruiser I can do little things to the Circus boat to wake it up.

    Slowride, No I haven't! But, this plate system is as they say new technology! LOL! I have seen a few boats run them and they hit hard! I am a new born when it comes to NOS!
    This plate is almost like a fogger system! WT
