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:

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?

PM inferno06SRT8. He's got the same cam as you and runs nitrous as well.

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.
