    is 125 shot safe?

    just like the title says i have a ls1 engine from a corvette and i wanted to put a 125 nitrous wet shot. will that be safe. this is my DD so i want it to be reliable. im not going to use the nitrous very much, only if i need it. just want to make sure my engine isnt going to "blow up" on me.

    ive shot 150 shot on a stock tune and timing for a while with no problems

    i would at least get it on a dyno to make sure the a/f is safe, but yes most of the time a ls1 will take a 100- 150 shot easy

    would an aggressive cam make any difference. i have a really aggressive cam in the engine and dont want to ruin anything.

    Depends on how much power you are making. I take it you have the stock bottom end. How much power are you making?

    i dont know how much power im making. im in the middle of a v6 to v8 swap and am planning on putting nitrous on it while im doing it. it will be tuned because of the cam. im kinda guessing the power to be around 400-450.

    safety all comes down to the tune.

    I have a heads and cam package on a stock bottem end with muitiple 150 shots thrwon at it. Most will say to never do that to a stock bottom end. I have even run a couple 200+ shots as well.

    Get it tuned for the jug, and use every safety device they make- yes you will spend more money but it will be a lot safer. My A/F shutdown switch has saved me a couple of times.

    I used a 150 wet shot to get into the 11's, great on the hi-way when passing also
