How To Mount An NOS Nitrous Oxide Bottle In Your Vehicle

November 3, 2019

inside most NOS bottles there is a pick up tube
that is molded to a specific angle that allows for maximum flow as the bottle nears empty keep in mind that when the NOS label
on the bottle is facing up the pick up tube will be positioned
correctly in the lowermost area of the bottle when mounted in its
angled brackets there are many ways you can mount your
NOS bottle in your vehicle but depending on the placement you
choose you will need to follow specific recommendations these guidelines will ensure that the
bottle will be able to pick up nitrous oxide liquefied gas during all operating conditions in the most basic breakdown there are
four main variations for bottle mounting the first two are for when you’re using
angled brackets and will be mounting the bottle horizontally
if you mount the bottle in line with the direction the car will be
traveling the valve must face forward and the bottle label
has to be facing up this position will make sure that as the
liquefied nitrous in the bottle runs low and the forward motion of the vehicle
keeps the nitrous pooled towards the bottom and rear of the
bottle the angled siphon tube inside will have the best chance of drawing
in pure liquefied nitrous if you want to mount the bottle
laterally in any way or perpendicular to the direction the vehicle is traveling the bottle needs to be rotated in its
brackets a 45 degree angle with the bottle label
pointing towards the front of the vehicle is a good position with the added angle
the siphon tube will be able to pick up the liquid nitrous as the vehicle moves forward causing the
liquid to pool at the rear of the bottle the other two orientations of bottle
mounting are for vertical positions if you mount the
bottle vertically with the valve pointing up you wanna
position the label of the bottle facing forward in the direction the
vehicle will travel this will make sure that the siphon tube
inside will pick up liquid nitrous as the
bottom level gets lower and the vehicle motion is forcing the
pooling liquid to the lower rear the bottle if for some
reason you would prefer to mount your bottle in
an inverted vertical orientation you need to modify the bottle and remove
the siphon tube the bottle would need to be emptied and
with the valve open you would unscrew the main valve from
the bottle this is not easy to do but when the valve is out you’ll find
the siphon tube connected to the inside of the main valve itself you need to
remove the siphon tube from the valve and reinstall the valve in order to
mount the bottle in an inverted position this will ensure
that as the bottle Indies liquid nature’s will flow uninterrupted at this point you need to consider a
critical safety warning if your bottles going to be mounted in a
hatchback style vehicle for inside the driver compartment any
type of vehicle the bottle valve must have a blow down
to be installed it increased pressure causes the safety
belt to rupture entire driver compartment could fill with a cloud of nitrous oxide that would present a brathing hazard to
anyone inside the vehicle the safety blowdown tube will route the
gases out at the vehicle this will keep any occupants in the
vehicle safe from breathing excessive nitrous oxide or from receiving severe frostbite from
the super cold temperature of the escaping gas now we’ll begin the installation process
once you’ve chosen your mounting position you want to fix your bottle into place a
good starting point is to put the bottle into its brackets
and place it in the proposed destination you want to be sure that the brackets
are sitting on solid placements and that the provided mounting holes
will be accessible from below or outside the vehicle permanently
fixing the bottle in place will be at your discretion five sixteenths is the bolt size that we
would advise for bottle brackets place washers above and below any sheet
metal to protect against bolts pulling through the body panels we recommend you put some type of a lock
washers under the fasteners to keep them from loosening overtime also consider the fact that you will
repeatedly want to remove the bottle or maybe even the bottle along with its
brackets on a regular basis to do the refills just be sure to mount the brackets in a
place that will leave enough room for sliding the bottle out of
permanently mounted standard brackets if space is tight consider accessories
like hinged brackets that will make the bottle removals easier
the last consideration for mounting the bottle is the travel route of the nitrous line
toward the engine compartment it’s pretty simple though you just need
to have enough slack to be able to easily disconnect and
reconnect the bottle during the refill process otherwise the
line can be secured all along its path when everything set and your bottle is
secure with the siphon tube correctly
positioned you can install the Teflon washer into the bottle adapter and thread
it onto the bottle valve tighten the nut with a wrench and then
thread the bottle end of the high pressure line in by hand to
establish a starting point for that hose as you plan a route for the
high-pressure nitrous line to travel to the chassis the vehicle keep in mind that taking path to the
underside of the vehicle are generally shorter that require more safety
binding and strapping points in most cases following the fuel lines along the frame of the
vehicle will work best paths that send the line through the vehicle
interior often use more hose length because they bend internal on interior
condors however internal routing usually
requires less securing and/or safety straping as you’ll be able
to tuck the hose in to crevices and under interior panels or carpeting ultimately you might want to choose a
path that allows you to use the included hose length again underside paths following the fuel
line are recommended for most applications before you run the hose in the interior
or along the undercarriage wrap the end of the hose with a couple
layers of plastic wrap or a small plastic bag and secure it in place with the rubber
band to keep debris out of the open end of the hose after the line has been run excessive
hose link can be called in easily concealed however braided high pressure hoses can
never be cut and shortened because the carefully machined ends and
compression type connectors after running the line if your hose path
causes you to end up short the proposed mounting point for your NOS
solenoid you do have an option you can purchase a two-foot high
pressure line extension that will finish up the path and still
that you retain the longer route the you initially ran the hosel along now you’re empty bottles installed the
nitrous feed line has been run to the engine compartment so we’re ready to move on to the rest to
the installation remember right now we’re dealing with the plumbing
hemisphere of your kit pieces the next items we’ll deal
with are the nitrous solenoid its filter the high pressure line that
connects the solenoid to the discharge nozzle and the next item up for install the
discharge nozzle or spray bar itself

    A-ha! I was asking a friend about mounting in the truck cab. The blowdown tube will sort the safety aspect, thanks.

    If i mount a bottle laterally, can the bottle lay perfectly flat? Meaning that the top of the bottle not be higher then the bottom.
