Now let’s get to who NX really is, I’m Mike Wood. I own 100% of Nitrous Express and have been involved with the nitrous phenomenon since 1978. I started with a small NOS (Nitrous Oxide Systems) nitrous kit on my TransAm. I thought this is the greatest thing since the invention of the automobile! Soon thereafter I installed a NOS direct port kit, or fogger as NOS called it, on my racecar. It was cool but I experienced multiple issues right out of the box. Out of necessity I got involved with the science and hardware used with nitrous oxide. I soon discovered many opportunities for improvement in the current nitrous kits offered, corrected them and earned a reputation of being the “Go to Guy” if you wanted to run nitrous. This was pretty easy, in 1979 few people in the racing world had even heard of nitrous. At that time, there were only a couple of companies that made nitrous kits, the most common being Nitrous Oxide Systems or NOS. NOS was so dominant in those days that many consumers still refer to nitrous oxide as nos, noz or even nos nitrous.
Through the 1980’s and early 90’s nitrous jetting patterns and tune-up information were hit and miss at best. Out of necessity, I set up a flow bench to precisely measure the amounts of nitrous and fuel used by each nitrous kit. The information learned during the flow testing was invaluable. Before I knew it, I was modifying and hot rodding almost every part of every nitrous system I used and/or sold to my fellow racers.
