Chapter 2 Kit Installation 2.1 Bottle Mounting Instructions NOTE: Disconnect the battery ground before beginning installation. 2.1.1 Street Vehicles Accurate calibration of your NOS nitrous system depends on the bottle remaining at a stable temperature. Mount the bottle away from heat sources, such as the engine compartment or exhaust system, and away from windows where the bottle may be exposed to direct sunlight. NOS recommends that the bottle be environmentally separated from the driver’s compartment. Since this is hatchback type vehicle and does not have a firewall between the trunk area and the driver’s compartment, the 16160NOS racer safety blow down tube must be installed. The blow-down tube should be routed to the exterior of the vehicle (preferably under the vehicle) . This procedure will prevent filling the driver’s compartment with a cloud of nitrous oxide if the safety pressure relief cap should happen to rupture for any reason. 2.1.2 Racing Vehicles Before mounting a nitrous bottle in a racing vehicle intended for use in sanctioned events, check with the sanctioning association for any rules regarding this subject. Most associations require that the bottle be mounted within the confines of the safety roll cage with the safety pressure relief cap vented away from the driver’s compartment. 2.2 Bottle Orientation Bottle placement is critical to the performance of your NOS nitrous system.
