Thumbs up 3.0 Soon to be N20 powered...

been over a month since anyone has posted in this area, but just wanted to let anyone here with 3.0's know that there is a great ZEX BB for N20 for the 90-97 Probe V6. Normally they go for 600 a kit, we can get them for only 395 a kit plus shipping. I'll be purchasing the Zex Hyperformance plugs which are made for Nitrous/Turbo/Super applications. I hope I don't blow my engine up. I scrapped the paint job idea for now, and decided to go with MORE power. I guess I'd rather have a car that looks like a beater and go fast then a nice go that won't go anywhere.

Anyways, hopefully I can do the install myself.

OK, well it looks like nobody is here, but here's an update anyways. I purchased a ZEX bottle heater and an Autometer air/fuel guage today, so now I'm looking into either a fuel pump, some new injectors, or an FPU.

Here's another update for my audience of none, I went for the Venom fuel pump, got that in the mail as well as the Zex bottle heater, now I am just waiting on the kit as well as the air/fuel guage! The venom pump looks sweet, but it was very costly...

Well i got the air-fuel guage in the mail already, the pump cost more than I'd like to admit............... next time I will go with a Walbro since they are much cheaper, but the Venom should KICK ASS anyways.. .. lol. Yeah I will not go NOS happy and blow the engine, hopefully. That's why I got the air/fuel guage and the fuel pump so that I can run a little richer then leaner, and of course be able to tell what's going on with the A/F.

The kit, I still don't have it. There was a slight problem with the BB and we are still trying to work out the kinks. But hopefully SOON if all that goes well. Otherwise I'll have to purchase a different kit or re-think my options.

Well, it looks like the BB must be on hold over at PT, since it's down. So until I know what's going on, NO NOS!

You mean where you live there is another 3.0 on NOS? Ask him if you can take a look-see! Thanks for the update on the kits, I LOVE YOU! What a relief, lets get these things in our grubby hands!

Yeah, that Venom pump was $217! :oo1:

The Walbro pump is about $100, it would have been much affordable, BUT who knows, the Venom pump is probably better considering it was designed for their NOS kits.

Give me some info on the purge kits that you have for sale! I might be interested sometime down the road.

I won't be installing this stuff right away. It's too cold outside, and I need to take care of a few things before I do it. I have to retard the timing slightly, also I need to fix a valve cover gasket leak that is pretty minor. One of the valve cover bolts snapped on me, and it didnt leak for the longest time, but now I am noticing a small leak, no big deal, just need to remove the cover, pull out the broken bolt and replace. Actually, I'll probably just get all new bolts for the valve covers, since I re-used the old ones-- big mistake. And last but not least, there is a SMALL coolant leak where the upper radiator hose meets the thermostat. It's not coming from the thermostat housing, it's coming from the hose, I tightened the hose clamp down a little more, so maybe that's all that it needed, since I know the rad. hoses are only like 2 years old, and they should not need to be replaced.

Lastly, I have to do something about my intake! I heard on Probetalk that a Civic or Integra CAI will work, but I do not recall which model since Probetalk went down right after I read about it. I'll need the new intake because we need a place to mount the nozzle.

When do you plan on installing yours, Harley?

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I need to still do a compression check, shouldnt take long at all. I'm pretty sure the engine is running strong at this moment.

I have also been looking into the possibilities of turning the vulcan into a vulcan/sho hybrid.......... studying up on that alot lately........
