NITROUS OXIDE INJECTION SYSTEM SAFETY TIPS
WARNINGS
Do not attempt to start the engine if the nitrous has been injected while the engine was not running. Disconnect the
coil wire and turn the engine over with the throttle wide open for several revolutions before attempting to start. Failure
to do so can result in extreme engine damage.
Never permit oil, grease, or any other readily combustible substances to come in contact with cylinders, valves,
solenoids, hoses, and fittings. Oil and certain gases (such as oxygen and nitrous oxide) may combine to produce a
highly flammable condition.
Never interchange nitrous and fuel solenoids. Failure to follow these simple instructions can result in extreme engine
damage and/or personal injury.
Never drop or violently strike the bottle. Doing so may result in an explosive bottle failure.
Never change pressure settings of safety relief valve on the nitrous bottle valve. Increasing the safety relief valve
pressure settings may create an explosive bottle hazard.
Identify the gas content by the NOS label on the bottle before using. If the bottle is not identified to show the gas
contained, return the bottle to the supplier.
Do not deface or remove any markings, which are on the nitrous bottle.
Nitrous bottle valves should always be closed when the system is not being used.
Notify the supplier of any condition, which might have permitted any foreign matter to enter the valve or bottle.
Keep the valves closed on all empty bottles to prevent accidental contamination.
After storage, open the nitrous bottle valve for an instant to clear the opening of any possible dust or dirt.
It is important that all threads on the valves and solenoids are properly mated. Never force connections that do not fit
properly.

WHAT IS NITROUS OXIDE?
NITROUS OXIDE…
…Is a cryogenic gas composed of nitrogen and oxygen molecules
…Is 36% oxygen by weight
…Is non-flammable by itself
…Is stored as a compressed liquid
…Exists in two grades—U.S.P. and Nitrous Plus:
q U.S.P. is medical grade nitrous oxide; its common use is dental and veterinary anesthesia. It is also commonly used as a propellant in
canned whipped cream. U.S.P. is not available to the public.
q Nitrous Plus differs from U.S.P. in that it contains trace amounts of sulphur dioxide added to prevent substance abuse. Nitrous Plus is
intended for automotive applications and is available for sale to the public
In automotive applications, Nitrous Plus and fuel are injected into the engine’s intake manifold, which produces the following results:
q Lowers engine intake air temperature, producing a dense inlet charge.
q Increases the oxygen content of the inlet charge (air is only 22 percent oxygen by weight).
q Increases the rate at which combustion occurs in the engine’s cylinders.

Read all instructions before attempting to install your NOS nitrous system.
Use a high-pressure fuel injection style fuel pump.
Use a by-passing type fuel pressure regulator.
Make sure your fuel delivery system is adequate for the nitrous jetting you have chosen. Inadequate fuel pressure or flow will result in
engine damage.
Use the recommended gauge of wire when installing electrical system components.
Use Teflon-based paste on pipe style fittings.
Make sure your engine and related components (ignition and driveline) are in proper working condition.
Check solenoid plunger seals frequently, as described in the maintenance section.
Rewire the existing nitrous system to match the wiring diagram supplied with this kit.
If nitrous is accidentally injected into the engine when it is not running, remove the engine coil wire, open the throttle, and crank
the engine 10 to 15 seconds before starting. Failure to do so can result in an explosive engine failure.
Activate your NOS nitrous system only at engine speeds as outlined in your systems owner’s manual.
Install a proper engine to chassis ground. Failure to do so may result in an explosive failure of the main nitrous supply line.

Engage your nitrous system with the engine off. Severe engine damage can occur.
Use octane boosters that contain methanol. Damage to the nitrous and fuel solenoids can occur.
Modify NOS nitrous systems (if you need a non-stock item, call NOS Technical Service for assistance).
Operate this system with a low-pressure (carbureted style) fuel pump. Inconsistent performance can result.
Operate this system with a dead-heading type fuel pressure regulator. Inconsistent performance can result.
Overtighten AN type fittings.
Use Teflon Tape on any pipe threads. Pieces of Teflon tape can break loose and become lodged in nitrous or fuel solenoids or solenoid
filters. Debris lodged in a nitrous or fuel solenoid can cause catastrophic engine failure.

q
Use sealant of any kind on AN type fittings.
Allow nitrous pressure to exceed 1100 psi. Excessive pressure can cause swelling or in extreme cases, failure of the nitrous solenoid
plunger. Solenoid plungers are designed so that pressure-induced failures will prevent the valve from operating. No leakage should occur
with this type of failure.
Inhale nitrous oxide. Death due to suffocation can occur.
Allow nitrous oxide to come in contact with skin. Severe frostbite can occur.
Operate this system without the safety solenoid in place. Explosive engine failure can occur.
Attempt to use this system with nitrous kits that inject nitrous and fuel ahead of the throttle plate. Explosive engine failure can
occur.

Chapter 1 Introduction to your NOS Nitrous Oxide Kit
1.1 General Information
Your NOS Progressive Nitrous Oxide Injection Controller is designed to provide you with a much smoother application of power than
conventional nitrous oxide injection kits. Kit #15835NOS is intended to work with most standard flange Holley carburetors that have mechanical
secondaries. If you wish to utilize this kit n a carburetor other than it was designed for, an alternate TPS bracket must be fabricated. It is
designed to operate two primary solenoids, with a maximum amperage draw of 12 amps.
4
By varying the amount of nitrous oxide injected into the engine, proportional to the throttle position, the behavior of the system changes
dramatically. No longer do you have the brutal on/off transition characteristic of conventional nitrous oxide injection kits. Your vehicle will now
react just as if it had a much larger engine.
By controlling horsepower output proportional to the throttle position, you will be able to minimize wheel spin and maximize controllability,
thereby achieving the maximum acceleration possible.
1.2 Operating Principle
Flow of nitrous oxide into your engine is controlled by a microprocessor, using the technique known as “Pulse Width Modulation”. This is the
same principle employed on all factory fuel injection systems. In simple terms, this means that the solenoids are opened and shut 25 times per
second. The length of time that they are held open is linearly proportional to the throttle position (closed at idle, open continuously at wide-open
throttle).
Conventional jets are used in both the nitrous and fuel sides of your NOS nitrous oxide injection system to limit total power output.
A secondary or redundant solenoid is used on the nitrous side of the system as a safety feature. When the throttle begins to open, this
secondary solenoid opens 100% and stays open until the throttle is returned to the closed position. Once the throttle closes, this secondary
solenoid also closes, preventing accidental leakage of nitrous oxide into the engine.
1.3 System Requirements
Ø
Fuel System—The fuel side of your nitrous oxide injection system needs to be operated at fuel pressures higher than typical carbureted
systems. NOS recommends that a fuel pressure of at least 15 psi be maintained. To accomplish this, you will need a high-pressure (fuel
injection type) fuel pump and by-passing regulator. Additionally, fuel jetting of carbureted style nitrous systems will need to be changed to
accommodate the higher fuel pressure. Appendix A provides detailed jetting combinations for all popular NOS nitrous oxide injection kits.
Ø
Redundant Solenoid—A secondary or redundant solenoid must be used on the nitrous side. The NOS solenoid designed to work in this
application is included in this kit.
WARNING: Due to the cyclic nature of the solenoid operation, use of this kit will reduce the life expectancy of the primary nitrous solenoid
plunger. Do not attempt to operate this system without the redundant nitrous solenoid in place. Doing so can result in leakage of
nitrous oxide into the engine and catastrophic engine explosion, resulting in injury or death.
1.4 Kit Components
Before beginning the installation of your NOS kit, compare the components in your kit with those illustrated in Figure 1 and listed in Table 1. If
any components are missing, please contact NOS Technical Support at 1-714-546-0592.

Figure 6 Wiring Diagram
Chapter 3 Preparing for Operation
3.1 Throttle Position Sensor Adjustment
1.
Disconnect the solenoids from the control module.
2.
Turn the arming switch and vehicle ignition “OFF”.
3.
Using a digital volt/ohm meter, check the resistance between terminals “B” and “C”, with the throttle in the closed position, as shown in
Figure 7. Resistance should be approximately 5400 ohms. Adjust the rotational position of the TPS until this resistance is reached.
4.
Set the throttle to wide open. Check the resistance between terminals “B” and C”. Resistance should be approximately 2450 ohms.
WARNING: Correct indexing of the TPS sensor is critical. If the sensor is incorrectly indexed (advanced), nitrous oxide may be
introduced into the engine whenever the system is armed, producing an explosive engine condition.
10
Figure 7 Indexing TPS
5.
Tighten the throttle position sensor in place.
6.
Connect the solenoids to the control module.
3.2 Fuel Jetting Modification
As mentioned in Section 1.0 “ General Information”, the use of this system requires fuel pressure higher than those typically used in carbureted
engines. Once a fuel pressure level has been decided upon and set, replace the fuel jet(s) in your system with jet(s) corresponding to your new
fuel pressure.
HINT: The tables in Appendix A have been provided to aid you in jet selection for all popular NOS nitrous oxide injection systems. Before
selecting a fuel pressure, it is wise to examine these tables for suggested jetting combinations. Try to choose a fuel pressure level that
allows the fuel jet(s) to be at least #16 - #18 (the smaller the fuel jet size, the more critical the filtering capability of your fuel filter).
3.3 System Checkout
CAUTION: Before performing the following steps, ensure that the nitrous bottle valve is off and the nitrous feed line is
empty. Failure to do so can result in an intake manifold explosion, causing serious injury or death.
1.
Close the nitrous bottle valve if it is open. Purge the nitrous from the supply line.
2.
Turn the vehicle ignition to “ON”. Turn the arming switch to “ON”.
NOTE: If the vehicle employs an electrical fuel pump, the pump should be shut off for Step 3.
3.
Manually operate the throttle linkage. Fuel and primary nitrous solenoids should both make a clicking noise, the frequency of which
changes with the throttle position sensor movement. When the throttle is in the closed (idle) position, the solenoid should be silent. If not,
check the TPS sensor indexing.
4.
Start the engine.
5.
Set the engine speed at approximately 2000 RPM. Slowly operate the throttle position sensor manually. Engine speed should decrease if
the system is performing properly.
6.
Set the engine speed at idle. Open the nitrous bottle valve. There should be no change in engine speed.
7.
Check the nitrous lines and fittings for leaks.
8.
ENJOY!
Chapter 4 Tuning Suggestions
Appendix A provides jetting recommendations for popular NOS nitrous oxide injection kits. If your system is not shown, call the NOS technical
department at 714-546-0592 for tuning suggestions.
Chapter 5 Routine Maintenance
The cyclic operating nature of this system greatly reduces the life expectancy of the primary nitrous solenoid plunger. A worn or damaged
plunger can cause leakage or improper metering of nitrous; the result of which may be engine damage or fire. For these reasons, it is important
to routinely inspect the primary nitrous solenoid plunger seal every 6 minutes of operation (6 minutes of activated time). Follow the procedures
listed below for solenoid inspection and maintenance. For additional solenoid information, see NOS Technical Bulletin #201.
11
5.1 Solenoid Inspection and Maintenance
1.
Turn off the nitrous bottle valve.
2.
Carefully relieve the pressure in the nitrous lines.
CAUTION: Inhalation of nitrous oxide can cause death. Contact of skin with nitrous oxide can cause severe frostbite.
3.
Unscrew the retaining nut from the top of the solenoid. See Figures 8 and 9 for the solenoid exploded views.
4.
Remove the solenoid coil.
5.
Place the spanner nut over the solenoid stem and engage the drive dowels in the holes in the top of the stem. Remove the stem turning
the spanner nut counterclockwise.
NOTE: Do not grip the stem. Damage to the stem will result.
6.
Remove the plunger and the spring. Examine the seat for damage. Figure 10 shows a plunger in good working condition. If there are any
cuts or evidence of missing plunger material, discard the plunger, spring, and base seal. Replace the components with new NOS service
parts. Table 2 lists the solenoid rebuild kits for all popular NOS solenoids.
7.
Repeat steps 3-6 in the reverse order.

Appendix A General Jetting Tips
In most applications, maintaining a nitrous/fuel ratio between 5.0:1 (richer) and 6.0:1 (leaner) will provide optimum performance. When
changing the jetting, it is suggested that you start with a rich (5.0:1) nitrous/fuel ratio. Lean the nitrous/fuel jetting until the desired performance
is achieved.
CAUTION: Be careful not to run an excessively high nitrous/fuel ratio. Severe engine damage can occur.
Jetting combinations for fuel pressures from 10 to 90 psi are listed in this appendix for all popular NOS nitrous oxide injection kits. For a
particular nitrous jet/fuel pressure combination, the larger fuel jet listed, will produce a 5.0:1 nitrous/fuel ratio. The smaller fuel jet should yield a
ratio of about 6.0:1.
13
NOTE: These nitrous/fuel ratios are attained with the nitrous bottle pressure between 900 and 925 psi. Higher pressures will result in leaner
nitrous/fuel ratios. Lower pressures will yield a richer mixture.

Jetting combinations are for engines with single stage nitrous systems only.
NOTE: Always start tuning a nitrous/fuel ratio richer than you expect to run. Gradually lean out the mixture until the desired performance is
attained. A slightly rich nitrous/fuel ratio will provide a dramatic increase in engine safety, while only slightly reducing performance.
