I am currently working on a build for someone and their favorite movie is Gone in 60 Seconds. I would like to use the following parts to emulate Eleanor's "go baby go" nitrous button in place of the power button.

What I would like to do is set it up so that the "nitrous" switch must be flipped for the power button to work and then once the switch is in the on position the "knob button" acts as the computer's power button. I emailed the manufacturer who said that the switch is on/off (ac and dc rated) and the button is momentary.

I'm pretty sure that this will work, but I want to get an opinion from the experts.

The purpose of the power button is to close (short) the two pins on your motherboard for powerswitch. all that is needed is momentary contact.

Wire the switch in series with the push button. the switch will need to be closed AND the push button closed to turn on the computer.
