I believe I sticky was just made for this. Check the sticky in the N2O tech section...I think Snigga wrote it........Nevermind that was for Forced Induction....carry on. You could probably find it on a search though.


Tuning is for the birds...

Nothing is 'safe' But 150 is the max that is recommended on a stock motor. Just jet it rich and you should be okay.

BTW, nitrous loves exhaust, so do the basic intake/exhaust mods like CAI, muffler, headers.

A 255lh fuel pump is also a good idea, and is a must have for over a 100 shot I believe.

Yes, it's the opti.

U can run up to a 150shot on stock internals. I recommend when running a 125 shot or higher to pull 3degrees of timing. Keep the car from detonation. Also a window switch or inginition with built in rev limiter is nice, as well as a WOT switch. Then of course bottle heaters and such are all extras. I am running a 125 shot now for about 30k on stock fuel pump no issue.

you can go above 150 on occasions. I knew someone that was spraying 200 on a stock motor occasionally but he had all the supporting mods.

Sure you can, but it's simply not recommended.

If you jet it rich, dont go too rich or fuel could puddle in the intake... That could prove hazardous to your engine's health. Make sure you do enough research before you put anything on it.

150 is safer, it could take a 200 for a bit but the stock fuels system is realy iffy at the 200..

ive sprayed the 140,000 mile moter with 150 shot at least 30 times, and 200 shot, like 5 or 6 times.. i was also driving the car every day, and drove it for 30,000 miles over those passes..

and for the record, never blew the motor, i took it apart BEFRORE i blew it, for insurance
