Im wanting to know where you guys have your 12v Source hooked up to for your kits.
I have mine run seprately from the battery with a disconnect switch up front, FYI all of my system Is run through relays.
Personal best 11.82@114mphJet 180 Thermostat, Nitrous Outlet Perimeter Plate, AirRaid CAI W/Scoop, CMR tuned, PT 2800 stall Converter, ZEX Complete Nitrous Kit, Stage 2 268H-13 Comp Cam, Iridium 2 Heat Range Colder Plug, Custom Built Dual Flowmaster Exhaust, Hedman long tube headers & Cat's Deleted, Line lock, AEM Wideband, Autometer Nitrous & Fuel Gauges, Glow Shift Triple Guage Pillar
ignition from under the steering column, or you can get it from accessory at the key or behind the radio
For "KEY ON POWER" nearly every vehicles under dash fuse block will have an Acc. pin or Ign. pin that has 12v with key on ACC. and RUN.
That circuit isnt meant to provide large amounts of power either, just small amounts like to your arm switch then to relay activation pins like 85 or 86 ONLY.
If your looking for power to solenoids or heater etc, I run 1 or 2 large(10-12ga) wires from battery to a small aftermarket fuse block and run main power from there to solenoids etc. An extra fuse block helps for diagnosis too. Im would hope most auto parts stores will have a fuse block. Makes for a clean install too.

If your looking for 12 voltsa under the hood you can use the power terminal near the fuse box as well.
Do a search of Plcman's threads. He has alot of power solutions for switched power.

Hey everybody is this something I should read up on or let my installer worry about it.
How do some of you have yours setup?
Hey Grant ill look into those blocks.
There is also an acc wire in the main harness in the trunk, when you lift up the plastic trunk cover you will find the main harness heading to the battery and fuse box in the spare tire well, in this harness is a solid pink wire (12 gauge) this will be acc, this is what I used
What size of a relay is everyone using for underhood? I know the heater relay is a 12 V 40/60 A relay.... but I can't find any that size at any of the local stores for the setup I want to run in the front with my windows switch and nmu.

Thanks to : BMC, Billet Tech, Nitrous Outlet
If you have a Nitrous Outlet heater, they require 20-24 amps depending on input voltage. So a 30 amp relay should be sufficient.
Hell i'll admit it, i dont know what the hell you guys are talking about. lol
But I am taking it all in. Thanks for the help.
Let us know what you need more info on and im sure we can get you on board.
