    my only suggestion is to goto junk yards and army surplus.... if you know any junk yards around you could scour have construction equipment cause it might have some (i once did this for an ultra rare handle) anyways thats my suggestion prolly be free to

    depends where you inject, its temperature and how hard you pump it in... if you want to sit on a time bomb you CAN have instant Nitro... another (safer) engine mod you can do is to inject water into the cylinders mixed with pure alcohol... ;)

    see Phats reply and mine :)

    if it is taking a minute for your nitros to engage then you are doing some thing wrong, i run a dual shot NOS(thats a brand people not the product) Fogger system, in my 72 merc cougar GT super coup, and when i prime my system at the line, i put around 900 lbs of presure in the line that leads right up to the last "valve' befor the injectors.

    using a didgital controled fire switch and a dyno, my system gains ~120 bhp in under .045 seconds from the time it fires. and the second shot is a little slower before it hits max power of right near 225 bhp at around .125 seconds.

    nitros is about as fast a power boost you can have, turbos lagg, huffers(supper chagers) have parasitic loss, wipple charges is a cross between buffers and turbos, where as nitros is flick a switch, hit the button and there it is POWER, true turbo in a bottle :)

    i dont like the water injection methoad because all it does is cool the intake and that gives a performance boost but it also wears out your engine, valves, exhaust way faster, and it can lead to detonation and thats a big power killer :(

    Those switches are cool but

    maybe just a wee bit overkill. I think on a standard lan li or something that would look a bit out of place. Maybe on an extreme case or something it'd look cool but 20 just seems like such a rip for a switch. JMHO though.

    Happy modding!

    That's the exact same kind of switch (Not the style, but momentary dpdt) that I used for the power window LCD mod... I might replace the one I have with that one in your post though, it's easier to mount cleanly...

    U know the old alienware hydrolics? Right? I have one of those, and I painted it, and put in a powered motor for the hydrolic door (so it would go up and down). Right now it looks lind of ungly cuz the switch is just a standart flipswitch. I have a friend who knows where to get the military style caps for cheap, so i'm gonna put it on it :D

    Maybe i missed it, but where can i get this in the US? :p ...Preferably cheaper than Directron's price. Jameco doesn't carry it (From what i saw) and i dunno where else to look, between lazyness and giving up. i dunno :|

    [Edit]
    I have a friend who's dad owns an autoparts shop and he actually has 2 of those switches (yellow and red). I'm trying to get the prices :D
