I will buy a kit for $465 in a local shop in a couple of weeks. My question are <b>1-which color of the throtle body cables I have to hook up?</b>; I got an aftermarket fuel pressure regulator (BRAND is: B&M for Honda Civic and some HYUNDAIS) <b>2-that will affect the kit performance?</b>; If I dont want any kind of over wheel spin in first gear, <b>3-I can arm the unit (in second gear) with the gas pedal completely floored?, that can hurt my engine?</b>; I read the installation instructions and <b>4-what is that of clearing the lines after each use?</b>, <b>5-can I leave the bottle open all the time?</b>; <b>6-what I need and where to find it, if I want to use a 65 or 75 shot?</b>; <b>7-If I use the system wisely my engine will not be harmed and will last like a stock one?</b> <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

Answers in order that you posted:

1) If you don't know which cable, I recommend getting someone to install it. It cost me $140, and the fact that someone who knows that they were doing did it, I probally saved $3,000+ for a replacement engine.

2) I m not familiar with the fuel pressure regulator. It will come in handy if it works with your 2.0L, key is not to run lean therefore you would probally want the richest mixture without bogging.

3) that will not hurt your engine. Most if not all nitro kits work at pedal to the metal. Make sure you are using it at about above 3,000 RPM. I use mine in 1st gear and it works fine nothing wrong with the transmission or nothing.

4) I disregarded this step and nothing happens. I believe its to flick the switch while the bottle is closed to create a vacuum? therefore when you open the bottle you get a better burst, who knows.

5) you can leave it open all the time. Cop pulls you over and notices its open while you are driving on the street, just bend over so he can screw you up the ass with tickets. I leave mine open cause I drive a "family sedan" so no one knows.

6) refer to the shop or to the company the kit is from. Most you can order off the company web sites.

7) I don't think so. Then again I don't care cause I don't keep a car for more then 3 years. I believe if you use it for 50,000km (not directly use it I mean on and off), it would probally be the same as if you drove 100,000 km without it.

Side note: Buy an Air/Fuel Monitor. You will at least have added security knowing your not running lean and therefore BLOWING up your engine.

Please see my site below, and you need a multi meter, if not borrow/steal/rent/ one.

Brendan I got the air/fuel ratio monitor (Autometer) on my car for a long time ago.
I see your site and read about the Zex Kit FAQs and I will follow all your recomendations,<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> but in which cable did you connect the Zex Kit in the TPS. In the photo I see a green cable but I am not sure if I am correct. Right now my car have the most important upgrades (like header, 2.25 exhaust system very special custom made CAI installed in the front left fender) for nos but the only thing that I need is the fuel pump and bigger injectors.<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

thats why you need the multi meter and test which one it is, please do not try the elimination process or you can have a nos dump if you connect the wrong one. and remember start at 55 and work up,
