Default Oh No...

Well, my brother just bought an '05 GT HO. Seems he liked mine enough to sway his decision on his second car! Now, of course, comes the issue... My PT is naturally aspirated and early on I chose to go for looks rather than performance so as of now, I have a "quick" PT but not a fast PT. That just wont do if you ask me! To combat this, I am slowly piecing together the parts of a NOS wet kit (and yes I mean NOS the BRAND, not like the general slang for nitrous) My aim is to set it up with a 50 shot, which should boost me up into the 220HP range. As of now, I have a few of the parts, but am missing the solenoids and the fogger. It is a pain knowing EXACTLY what you need and not having the cash for it...

It'd be easier and cheaper to take a plug wire off your brother's GT...

Haha, I think I would get away with that for, oh maybe ten minutes! After that, I think he would use the mustang to chase me down.

MX-5 is our expert on the wet nitrous system for the N/A PT. Don't forget the internals in yours aren't built like the GT so I wouldn't go pushing it just to keep up with your brother especially since your your scraping up money for NOS parts. I blown engine cost big bucks.
