I could probably mount mine in the car because I don't have any pax seat BUT I will mount it by the battery for weight distribution.

It'd probably do better off on the pass. floor, as the weight will be lower and closer to the center of the car, rather than hangin' off the back axle w/ the battery.

Its a good idea in theory but i dont know if you actually do any track events but most circuts consider an intercooler sprayer a fluid leak and grounds for disqualification. You should also consider the extra weight of the water + tank + mechanisms. I would recomend using No2 instead of water which is not a fluid and is significantly lighter and colder.

just my 2cts.

Just went through a big discussion about this on the power list and they convinced me that weight balance/distribution was more important than close to center (which was what I thought).

Yeah, I guess it depends on the situation. So, is the Powerlist still pretty active?

A lot more active than my list <G>! The power list has had 125 messages since 12/11/06. I haven't been reading them, been hacking XBoxes the past few days, so I just looked at how many unread messages were in my folder.

Default Nos...

I can't really see the justification for spraying NOS..granted its effective but the cost ratio of using NOS vs CO2 or water just doesnt make it worth it. Especially when your advocating a nitrous express sprayer that costs like twice what the devils own WI kit costs.

"My eclipse is topping out at 140! I need two 10lb bottles of NOS!"

I've got 4 modded XBoxes running Evox (with XBMC). One is hooked to a 31" TV, two are hooked to 31" monitors and one hooked to a 36" monitor (real CRTS - HUGE). All four are hooked together on a LAN for head to head gaming.

My Boxes sport 0.97 terrabytes of storage and around 700 pounds of monitors on custom made cabinets! Sitting in the same room is two modded Tivos, two custom arcade machines running MAME and a 1905 8.5' pool table. <G>.

I run Evox as a dash but load XBMC off of it (custom main menu with button for XBMC).

You sound like me. I've got a custom MAME, 3 modded DirecTivos and a modded HD DirecTivo. No Xboxes as I'm more of a PC gamer but I do have the 10 foot front projection TV. No pool table but I've got the Hold 'em Table and dart board. And Sirius throughout the house. I'll actually have the turbo Miata in 2 weeks.

Our poker table is in storage now because there is no room for it. We bought it and the nice poker chips (cost as much as the table did) back before the latest poker craze hit. I think prices are about 33% now compared to what they were when we bought our stuff (can get nice chips and tables in Sam's Club now). Paid the extra money for everything back then (4 years ago?) and justified it by saying that we would have the table for the rest of our lives.
