You could take and old MSD box and mount them inside of it.

Just remember the further away you have the soloniods the softer the nitrious will hit, which in a boat application is probably better. Also fuel pressure and bottle pressure are highly important. I used to run 250hp of nitrious thru a basically stock 302 (you saw the pix) and had no problems.

i believe inside the engine is perfect for hiding but do you think heat is a problem?!?
-side wall or msd box is also cool..

I wouldn't install them inside the engine just because sometimes a piece of dirt or something can get past the filter causing the nitrious soloniod to hang up, and if it is in the motor it will be a pain in the ass to fix.
As far as heat is conserned , I really don't know.

I wouldnt use nitrous, you can shoot maybe 15-20 seconds at a time through the engine, then you need to idle till the engine cools down. What about a twin turbo system? (only a few times more $ than N2O!!)

Find some street racers in your area for ideas. Selenoids can be hidden anywhere you can think of. Inside a large flame arrestor for instance. Inside a fake stereo amp would be novel. Hiding the bottle is the trick. Maybe a fake Halon system ???????

Under seats, look at the Rx-7 from the fast and the furious, Nitrous bottles are hidden under the passenger seat which flips up.

Oh God ,
I think I would rather have bamboo splinters shoved under my fingernails than watching the " The Fast and the Furious" !!!

One question, Why would the engine need to be cooled down after spraying it ? If you engine is heating up when you spraying it you've got problems

Sounds like a lot of amateur answers to a simple question.
You can mount it ANYWHERE you want. Just remember that the solenoids will need routine cleaning, so mount them in an easily accessed location. The further from the nozzle, the softer the hit, as was stated before. Let`s not mention that God-awful excuse for a film called "The Fast and the Furious". That film has set hot-rodding back 20 years. Who has ever heard of "Naaaz" ??? Freaks.....
For a proffesional answer to ANY or ALL of your Nitrous Oxide questions, go to:

These guys know their ****!

Good Day!.......
