Default nitrous guage...hide it or show it?

i already had my nitrous guage installed outside of my car since its a machanical guage. i was having second thoughts about it tho so i took it out not knowing what to do. i got a couple of opinions from people saying that i shood hide the guage so no one can c it it and other people say that if i have it theres no sence in hiding it cause other people are gonna no u have it. my other question is, what if i get pulled over for some thing and the cop sees that guage..will he have the rite to search my car for nitrouse and get it towed or not. thats another reason y im having second thoughts about it..what do u think?

Nitrous is not illegal to have in the car, at least not in Illinois maybe it is different where you are. The gauge can mounted anywhere inside the car and still comply with NHRA rules it is a non-flamable gas, you do need a blow down tube on the tank if it is inside the passenger compartmrnt. I try to hide it in the ashtray so when you open it you can easly see the gauge, I would also hide the rest of the kit so I could pop the hood and nobody would know

i say show that baby. if your gonna have it in your car, at least your planning to use it and keepit out for those useful times. and it is illegal state to state because i know that it illegal in NJ, so find what the laws are in your state.
