Default How to regulate nitrous pressure with nano.

When I open the nano bottle all the way, my nitrous psi shoots to 1300 psi. Am I supposed to only open the nano bottle a little?

I thought the nano was supposed to regulate it for me. Any ideas on how to get the pressure in check would be good.

Thanks,
Mike

Ok, I let the bottle cool to around 75 degrees and the pressure came down to 1100. My bottle earlier was 90+ degrees.

I'm in the process of doing the same thing but my pressure was at 1050 so I took the nano valve apart and removed two shims which ended up dropping my pressure to 950. I haven't had a chance to test the car.

Any info on how to take the shims out​?

I just googled "how to adjust a paint ball regulator" and watched several videos until I found one that resembled my nano one.

Nano doesn't like heat but I had to adjust my regulator since my pressure was 1050 even on a 70 degree day. Tinted hatch window with the privacy cover help while parking in the shade on hot days.

You have to be careful with how cool you run a NANA nitrous bottle. You will find that the lower the bottle temps, the more horsepower you will make and the more fuel will be required to prevent a lean condition. Always run your bottle at the same temp you tune it.

I like the pressure to be at 1050 psi.

Ok, so my issue is this. I had the nitrous and nano bottles at room temp. Both bottles full. Nitrous psi before nano around 800psi. Turn nitrous on and **** on nano all the way on and the nitrous bottle goes to 1400psi.

I bought the nano kit used, so I think the regulator broken and not regulating the flow.

Does this sound correct?

Someone has either modified or damaged the regulator. In general they are not serviceable but some have changed the pressure as described above. I would contact NANO and see what they suggest. Do NOT disassemble the regulator with pressure in the nano bottle.

ok, I purchased a new regulator. A ninja brand V2 pro 3000psi adjustable regulator 900-1100 psi.
