Single or twin nozzle?

I am about to order a Razor's Alky kit and was wondering if I should order a single or twin nozzle kit. I plan on running about 25 lbs of boost, so I believe a single nozzle would be fine, but my up pipe from the intercooler is already drilled for twin nozzles.

Am I better off running a single nozzle, and plugging the second hole, or should I run twin nozzles with small jets?

Thanks in advance

How much HP are you making and how fast do you plan to go? A single nozzle with a tweaked pump should take you into the high 10's range if not a little faster depending on the weight of the car.

Tell Julio what you have & he will tell you what you need. Thats how I determined what I should use. He makes them, sells them, tunes cars so I trust him.

I've been 10.6 in my full weight, fully optioned GN. I only had the dail on the alky controller on 6.5 also. This is with a single nozzle.

I don't have a roll bar yet, so my goals are only 11.50. I will be running a 6262 billet turbo, CAS V2 FMIC, stock heads with a mild port job, 204/214 cam.

I realize that I don't NEED twin nozzles at this point, but my up pipe is drilled for it, so I'm not sure what to do...

It's going to be way harder to tune with two nozzles. I had the same problem when I went from my dual nozzle SMC to the Alky Control. Two nozzles do look cooler.

single nozzle is what you need...and, as others have said...much easier to tune.

It's much easier than the generic size of your turbo, read your MAT temp and spray until you hit no lower than 70 degrees (68 by some). After 70 degrees you're actually going to start to LOSE HP little by little. Too cold ails the combustion process, too hot can cause preignition etc.

Typically for a mid 11 sec Buick, an M15 nozzle on my system is plenty. If you have the two holes there, get a twin nozzle and use an M5+M10=M15.

If you ever get really faster, you canchange out the tips to much larger ones.
