Ok I have my nitrous system and my bottle heater both hooked into a keyed fuse. I used my wiper fuse because it's 25 amp and it only gets power when the key is in.

Now the question is.... I just have the wires plugged into the fuse socket and the fuse kinda smushed in on the wires...

There has to be a better way that I can do this. Is there some way I can add an adaptor that supports the wires and then the fuse just plugs in nice and clean?

i'm not sure if i follow, do you want to clean it up and keep the connection there on the IPJB?

or do you want to tie it into the ignition? or do you want to be able to turn it on/off whenever you want??

get back

I think I know what he is talking about. He is pulling out a fuse from his fuse box. He is tying his wires around the fuse and replacing the fuse back in the fuse box. He wants to know if there is an adapter that you can put on the fuse to make it so the wires can fit on the fuse and the fuse doesnt have to be mashed into the box. I did that...mine is just mashed in.

On my second gen, in the interior fuse panel, there is a Single PIN with no home, in the middle area. I think its a voltage test source or some chit.

Its on when the car is running only.

I used that to switch like 3 relays to power all my aftermarket junk.

Fuse Tap (for picture reference)

if you go back to the fuse taps, I believe you want the small not the large, but the large had a picture of how they work as the small just had a picture of them in a pile. So I linked you to the large size, just use the nav menu above them to go back to Fuse Taps and to small.

as an alternative to fuse taps, I had something I think called add-a-circuit from one of the parts stores. looked a little cleaner, but did the same exact thing.

The add a circuit said nothing over 10 amps

How much are a Nitrous system/ heater pulling?

if your pulling 30amps you should run a relay. Its wired to batt, then your switch just powers up the relay -very small current.

Yeah I'm running 2 relays

1 to power the heater and 1 to power the nitrous kit and they are run off a 25 amp fuse.

Easy as hell

I just wanna clean up my install. I mean hell I spent the rest of my day trying to figure out my wiring problem and the only thing wrong was a wire fell out cuz I ghetto rigged it.

Coo coo coo

Went to RatShack and picked me up some fuse taps

it's a snug fit with our little tiny fuses. I dont know if I'm ever gonna be able to get the fuse out again LOL.

But its tapped and way cleaned up and everything works at the same time and nothing blew up Twisted Evil

Cool guys, Thanks for all your help.
