Great question. Now I don't have to ask :sneaky:
Nice picture so we can all see how you have it set up before you move them.
50 or 75 wet shot??? Or bigger?

I had mine on the driver side firewall. A cdi mount like that used on the sparktech boxes that mounts it on the driver side strut tower could work also.

im thinking about modding the solenoid brackets and doing something similar to this mount for the ls.

go this route using the top two throttle body mounts then bend them so they sit back towards the intake plenum.

What is your LS in? Sounds FUN!!! I ran a 150 wet plate system on my 1973 Vega GT that had a 327 small block in it and it LOVED it.

That would be even cooler. I thought maybe you had other "projects" in the works too! :thumb:

well i tried mounting my solenoids off of the top bolts on the throttle body. unfortunatly it doesnt look like its going to work out as it still in line with the bellhousing area (or how it looked to me anyways). so im back to square one. if anyone has pics on how they mounted theirs and pass tech without issue please feel free to post them up.

This is where I'm mounting mine. Just have to find a couple of screws for the purge solenoid that I'm holding and finish the install of everything.

I didn't realize my kit was a wet kit (new to this nitrous thing) so I guess the solenoids are inside the square box. However I'm not going to use the fuel in/out side. Just the N20 in/out. Purchased a new single nozzle for the one line to go to versus the dual, even though I could've capped off the side I wasn't using. The purge solenoid will still be mounted in the location I'm showing, more than likely. Thing I'm unsure of at the moment is how to install the purge line to exit the vehicle. Oh, and going to relocate the relay to the firewall instead.
