Nitrous bottle mounting in Monza hatchback?

Postby bill1978v8 » Wed Aug 01, 2007 7:26 pm

Where is the best place to mount the Nitrous bottle. The car is a 78 Monza Hatchback. Should I but it off to one side or right in the middle? Just asking to see what some of you have done?

Thanks,

Bill,mount it where it's easy to get in and out,cause once you use it you'll be addicted.

Thanks! I was reading thru the directions and it said to keep away from windows to prevent heat spike and to use a blowdown tube so I'll have to look under the car to see where I can run the tube thru. I know I'll be addicted, I told myself I'm just going to use the 75 hp jets but i know better!!

Thanks,

you could mount it on the hump between the back seats like i did my fire extinuishing system bottle. the added plus would be the look of fear for your rear seat passengers having that bomb in a beer can next to there legs................

That's just so no one smashes your window in an attempt to steal your bottle. I once heard of a guy that stole drums off a car for his monza and put the wheels back on the car. ok, I'm just having fun now. Actually I'm wondering why someone hasn't come up with a good answer yet. One side or the other might be better for weight transfer, or just say f*ck it and put one on each side. even if one is a spare.

After switching to 15's I couldn't carry a spare, so said WTF and welded the brackets right in the middle. For the most part the hatch shades the bottle from the sun.
