To ensure the 100-shot doesn't lean out Brent's stock engine, the HOB boys built a dedicated fuel system to feed the nitrous kit. The cell is filled with 116-octane race fuel, which is fed to the solenoids through its own pump and regulator. It sounds complex, but the entire nitrous system-window switch, bottle heater, and throttle-position switch-are all activated by one switch in the cockpit.

Setting this combination apart is the Cobra intake manifold from Sullivan Performance (www.sullivanperformance.com), which features this sleek forward-facing throttle-body mounting. We detailed this intake in our May '05 issue ("Tower of Power," p. 140). Designed for high-rpm or boosted applications, the intake can be run with fuel injection or a carburetor, and versions are also available for 5.4 engines. While the lower intake was designed to mate with '99 Cobra heads, there's enough material to allow porting it to match any Four-Valve intake runner. The lower intake sells for $599, while the optional upper elbow is $299 and the fuel rails are $179. Dorian found the lower was a perfect match for the Terminator heads as well.
