I figured that the majority of you fox guys are nifty guys and dig stuff like this... lemme know whatcha think,

I didn't really feel like drilling into the nostrils of my hood, so I went a different route for my nitrous purge.

VIDEO BELOW

A machinist at work made these for me... We decided to add a "little design" to the antenna, route the nitrous purge to it. Made out of 100% stainless steel.

What do ya think of this?

I want one!
its pretty easy. i drilled out the center with a 1/4" drill bit and the bottom with a 1/2" and pin a 1/4" compression fitting in the bottom and filled around it in with plastic weld. i use a 1/4" plastic line for my purge.
big lines = big purge if you have a big enough solenoid

You don't drill holes in your hood for a purge. You put it up under the cowl panel. That Antennae is not a bad idea. However, the idea is that you have it in your field of vision with a helmet on so that you can see when all the air is out.

you can see it still... and the biggest thing a purge is used for it to get pressure down

Years back, I had a friend with a 96-98 Cobra that I did the nitrous install on.

I put the purge in the two hood vents, going forward at an angle. It looks like a bull snorting when he hit the purge.

I think he went through 2 bottles just purging all the time.

Mike, sure back then when it was $3 a pound. Now it's like 7-10. That's why I sold my kit. 15 years ago I was going through 2 bottles a month and figured it was cheaper in the long run to put on a Vortech.

Last time I checked the local.place here was selling it for $4/lb. Been so long since I had the bottle filled I haven't thought about it in awhile.

Never had to get my bottle.pressure down. I have the opposite problem, getting the bottle pressure up.
