Not familiar with that one, but if you just trigger the progressive to Burp the engine, does it cause an issue with it resetting or getting out of whack? If not, just make you a button that bypasses the WFO switch, transbrake switch, etc. to trigger the progressive to fire.

You'll have to test it, some progressives when you do that will start back up where you "lift" at, which would screw you up. If it restarts the timer everytime you trigger it that setup would work.

OR, you could just make a switch that grounds the solenoids to fire them directly - that's actually a bit easier.

No, don't have a diagram. Should be pretty simple to do, just find where your solenoids connect to the controller and add a wire, run it to a Normally open push button switch, then the other side of the switch to ground.

I don't understand your question. Is this how you have your setup currently wired?

Oops sorry, forgot about that relay. Yes, you're right the relay has to be triggered too.

Ok, let's try this again. Too many wires to mess with bypassing the relay. It would be easier just to bypass the Throttle switch like this..

No...That will only activate the controller ...then would have to reset each time.... before leaving....
takes 10 sec or so to reset by itself..

I see - if the controller takes that long to reset, that can be a problem. So with that controller, if you pedal it, the controller picks back up where it left off unless you leave the nitrous off for 10 seconds, then it resets?
