speaking of ZEX again, about half an hour after i made the original post i got some finally. apparently my gf thought she should make it up to me for having my wisdom teeth pulled the other day. luckily they don't hurt today.

good luck to everyone else, i'm hoping to have more ZEX tomorrow as well.

ZEX

well, i dunno about the 1g's, but on the 2g's there are two reasone that a ZEX kit will not work...1)for the 97+ models, it is a dry kit, so that automatically makes it unusable,2) it doesnt use a lever on the throttle like the other kits, it uses an electronic device that reads the voltage at WOT, and our cars do not give off enough voltage to activate the system, 4.5 is the minimum, and ours gives like 4.1.....1g's might be different, but i doubt it. ZEX i dont think is any better than the other systems, it just uses electronics instead of "mechanical" things. also, if something goes wrong with the zex kit, instead of just replacing a line or wire, you pretty much have to buy a whole other kit, cause that little "box" that controls everything is pretty damn expensive.

EclipseGS1997, is there any particular reason why you went with NX rather than NOS? I am going to be going nitrous sometime in the near future, but I'm trying to decide which kit to go with.

Also, do you know how much a nitrous install will run me, or did you install it yourself?

Yeah EclipseGS1997, why did you go with the Nitrous Express kit instead of the NOS kit. Also, how much of the nitrous do use i.e how often you fil up your bottle? Is nitrous worth it for us non-turbos?

Thanks for answering all my questions.

The zex kit can be made to work with a 2g if you want it to.
All you would have to do is get a relay and set it up so that when the relay trips, it sends more then 4.5 volts (from a 9v battery or 12v from the car if you want) to the zex input wire... but you would have to tune the relay with a potentiometer to get the relay to close when the cars TPS wire output is a little less than max voltage (say 4.0v on a 2g, 4.9v on a 1g).
or...........
you could just mount a nice little microswitch on the gas pedal or the throttle pulley(or whatever it's really called) so that the switch is setup to send the zex input wire 9v (or 12) when the switch is pushed...
I think too much...I think....

yeah I will prob do something like that. I really want to get ZEX because it is so reliable. A couple of my friends have it, and they have no problems. I like the idea of having it be eletronically controlled, but since I dont have 1500 for Venom, i will have to get the next best thing. Thanks destrux.

Talking Nitrous

You can cure the voltage problem that the ZEX has when on a 2gNT, but is still a dry kit, which means you cant use it, your only choice is a wet kit, or the venom kit. as for going with NX, that kit is for our cars, the only kit NOS offers for a 2g eclipse is one that says it is for the turbo model. now granted, there are hardly ANY differences in ANY wet kit, regardless of the brand, but that was just enough to shake my confidence. and supposedly the NX nozzles are a lot better, also they rate their shots power at the wheels, not at the flywheel like ZEX and NOS. i wouldnt use a ZEX kit personally, even if i could...ive saw one of those little boxes mess up quite a few times and its expensive.
