      He was running a much larger shot and different kit on a 5.0..different kit with smaller shot is gonna give different results. .

      Personally ill call Nx and tell them about your issue. .their customer service is very good and wouldn't doubt they would send you new solenoids. .but they are gonna ask if you have a filter and may blame it on your refill station. .

      Id get a filter and figure out your issues (which i dont think its related to pressure ) and look towards gears or a cam..

      Headers aren't really worth it on a "stockish" 4.0 motor..thats unless there is something wrong with the stock ones and you just need new ones..they dont add any power till you do cams or head mods like porting or valves..

      I use the pacesetters that are jet hot coated..they are good headers and really good coating

      I'm planning on getting the 422 cam sometime this winter and hopefully 95tm heads if i can find some in good condition from a junkyard. Likely be doing some port work too

      Well then they might add 5-8rwhp after all that..just make sure to use the metal felpro gaskets. .

      That's not worth it IMO. Do you think getting a exhaust cutout for the track would help or hurt performance?

      Probably wouldnt hurt but also wouldnt help..these motors dont move alot of air so typically high flow cats and good exhaust is about as much gains as your get..typically the cost of good headers arnt worth it unless you just want them or have alot done and want that extra power..

      Id put them on if going to high compression, cam,port work and spraying nitrous. .10 rwhp and like 15lbs tq would be worth it on a motor that only makes 160 at the crank stock..

      Good to know. Thanks! Once I get down to a 1/4 tank of gas I'm going to stop by the landfill and finally weigh my Explorer.

      The Explorer weighs 3960lbs with me in it and the spare and passenger seat removed.

      Got a bottle heater. Hopefully will bring faster and more consistant times. Still wanting to do a mild rebuild with 95tm heads and the 422 but likely won't have the time till at least this summer.

      New intake is on. Works well with the BBK throttle bottle.
      Two week ago I mailed in my solenoids to Nitrous Express. Once I get that back I plan on putting that back on as well as the bottle heater. April 14th is Julesburg Dragstrip's opening weekend. I'm hoping I'll be able to make it out there and make some runs at the lower elevation.

      When i was in contact with them they said that it could be a bad coil but hopefully I'll find out what went wrong when I get them back.

      Spoke with NX today, They said that the plunger in the solenoid got stuck due to not being used for a while and the coil is not powerful enough to reopen it. Cost me $30 to get it fixed and they'll be shipping it tomorrow. Just in time for Julesburg on the 15th.

      Just the nitrous one. I had no problem spaying fuel.

      Never got the chance to go out to Julesburg last month. Both weekends were canceled due to snow and rain so I won't know for a little while what I'll be running ET wise but the nitrous is working perfectly.

      Starting to get familiar with the bottle heater. I think it'll really help with consistency. Did a couple test hits and even managed to get some tire spin on a launch. Raced my friend's 7.3 F350. We were about dead even until 3rd gear when his compound turbo finally spooled up and flew ahead of me.

      Fun stuff, can't wait to be racing this summer.
