Default Can you fit a 15lb bottle in c5z?

Thinking about ordering a nitrous kit for my c5z Can you fit a 15 lb bottle in a c5z or it too much of a hassle?

Please post pics

10 LB BOTTLE 6.89 DIA. X 20.19 TALL
15LB BOTTLE 6.89 DIA. X 26.69 TALL

Most people do 10lb bottles.
Dual 10lb bottles in the trunk are your best bet.

Default Bottle

I bought the billet nitrous bottle bracket off of ebay, it's the one that's around 80 bucks, and mounted it to a piece of MDF with black speaker carpeting on it. Due to the angle of the trunk cavity already you have to reverse the bracket to get the bottle to angle right but it works perfectly. Now this is technically not mounted directly to the vehicle so if you want to take it to the track they could potentially ask you to bolt it down to the trunk, I don't think my tracks tech is that picky

I have two 15 pound nitrous bottles in my FRC. You could easily fit 4 if you wanted to.
