Why would you? To cheap to buy kpro and make sure everything runs correctly? Or just excited to blow some shit up? lol


You can run all the nitrous in the world without kpro... you can do any mods you want without kpro. Is it going to run the best? Probably not.. is it going to be the safest? Maybe not.. Your choice though

u do know that installing kpro is like...5 minutes of work right? and it doesn't require you to install pistons and cams to work.

do u understand how to make a nitrous system work? you need to retard ignition for nitrous. especially with that big a shot.

ive never really messed with a k series this is my first..ive only built b series and so on...and yes i understand how nitrious works i just dont understand the whole kpro ecu..it seems to me that every mod besides basic bolt ons requires you to tune the kpro..

ah i see. yes kpro ALLOWS you to tune everything. but if your car is stock-ish, it does not REQUIRE you to. there are already well developed tunes for stock, cai, i/h/e setups that will get you running in less than 5 minutes.

for nitrous/boost/cams, u would def need some actual dyno and street tuning. but for basic boltons, the supplied factory tunes will do just fine.

go to the ECU Tuning forum and read the stickies.

There is a dude on K20a.org thats been running a 100 shot on his Z3 untuned and hes put quite a few bottles through it. I dont recommend doing it, but apparently it can be done. Ill post a link up once the site comes back up.

oh no doubt u can do it. it's living dangerously and if you're into that, good luck to ya. but most ppl don't want to blow their motor and not care.

what about a dry system? :ugh:
I wouldnt run dry unless your Kpro, since there is no way of adding the needed fuel. I think with a Zex kit you can hook up a vacuum line to a FPR and it'll apply pressure to the diaphram in the regulator and increase the fuel pressure and adding more fuel through the injectors.

If you already have Kpro just install it and start learning how to tune with it while the car is NA. Once you feel like you've got the hang of it, then run the nitrous. It should be very simple to pull a few degrees of timing and adjust fuel trims for added safety.

Here is that dudes 100 shot setup untuned stock Z3, taken from K20a.org
My setup. WON direct port setup. 100 shot for the time being.





Wow, my first post here.
Thanks for the kind welcome words.
The engine has approximately 230 HP with the usual bolt ons, but with stock ecu and catback. Add to that the 100 shot.
Up untill now I did approximately 80 1/4 mile passes with this setup without problems.
I want to install the hondata flashpro though. Right now as I`m writing this down I`m bidding on a used flashpro for sale on another forum lol. Hope this time I`m lucky.
