Talking Best Surprise Ever!

Last night my better half surprised me for our 1yr 6month anniversary with a zex nitrous kit (w/ race set up) and lil boy 114 *4 cam... Doesn't get much better than this, right!!!!

I am super excited to get this in, but I have a couple questions first:
1) It didn't come with the nitrous controller, does anyone know whether a wet or dry set up is better?

2) Is this the right cam for me? I only plan on running a 150 shot and I have to keep in mind this is my DD. I had previously decided to go with a ppp stage 2, but now that I have read a little, the lil boy seems to be pretty nice when accompanied with Nitrous. I don't plan on adding a sc or turbo FYI.

Anyways thanks for any input... here are some pictures:





06' Jeep SRT8 - (Silver) eibach lowering springs, bwoody CAI, mangaflow cat back w/reso deleted, 2 step colder iridium plugs, billet catch can, t-stat, predator tune by johan, drilled & slotted rotors, 8k hid low beams & fogs, smoked rear led lights & signals, led interior lights, custom interior(carbon/black finish), weather tech mats, passport sr7 w/ zr3 shifter, all chrome deletion to match body color with black wheels, rear 315's front 275's

What electronics did the kit come with? You want to run it wet...that's the only way you want to run it. I see the solenoids on a bracket so I take it this kit didn't come with the zex nmu box?

You have an awesome gf btw...she's a keeper!

It came with all electronics I think except the control box & window switch, the solenoids you see is for the purge kit I believe...

So I should get the wet zex control box?

Zex only makes one kit for the jeep srt8 and thats a wet setup. Looks like your missing the heart of the kit, the NMU / zex box. That bracket is custom made with dual purge
kit. You have a cool girl for sure!

What car did the kit come out of?

I run a zex wet setup with arrington 90mm nitrous Throttle Body 125 shot and FRI LB Cam 0*, you will like it! Especially for a dd and if you dont plan on going SC or big build. Cam is the best bang for the money. Your 4* cam will have more lowend power.
