    200 shot or not?!?!?!

    The car is done:

    Cold fusion nitrous system, purge, heater, window switch, timing control, hobbs switch.
    Lingenfelter in-tank fuel pump, -2 colder spark plugs, race fuel.

    The system is money. Poweshifting will give you a smoking rear end though 4th. BUT IT IS STILL NOT ENOUGH!!!!

    I am debating going a 200 shot this weekend and taking some more timing out. Does anyone know of folks spraying 200 on a stock c5 engine? I hope I don't blow a cylender

    Next move= Dynatech headers and high output cam.

    Also, any safety tips for going onto a bigger shot (in-line fuel pump? Bigger injectors? just don't do it?).


    You can never:
    Be too muscular.
    Be too good looking.
    Shoot too big of a gun.
    Drive a fast enough car.
    Word.

    is this system dry or wet?

    well, i've been running a 200 motor rating (139rwhp) for the last year with no ill effects. you already have a good fuel pump.

    truthfully, headers would be the next step before bumping up the shot though.

    system is wet. I agree about the headers, but as long as the bitch doesn't detonate, the shot is "free" (already installed, set to go) and the headers will run me $2000 w/ installation.

    i still don't have headers on the black car, yet. i have a mission to get into the tens with it on completely stock motor from TB to factory cats. and with my recent dyno tests on n2o, i might just get there.

    i have an old buddy that was dropping 200 dry on stock internals. he did it as safe as he could. he had a 75hp initial stage and a 125 final stage. It lasted longer than I expected. He ran through8-10 bottles before he fried the #8 ring. the car ran 11.20 on drag radials. dont remember the mph.

    From a fuel standpoint you should be okay. You might want to try running a higher octane fuel and pull a few more degrees of timing when you spray her. A progressive controller will also help get rid of any spikes, therefore taking a lot of the strain off the stock bottom end.

    Ok, a dry system may blow at 200 hp/ What about a wet shot? What must I do to shoot more NOS?!

    As mentioned above....a progressive controller is what I recommend....you are flirting with lunching a motor here...and I know you realize that....forged bottom end and dyno tune would be my minimum prior to going over a 150 shot...but I wear suspenders and a belt on my britches

    If it was me, I would go with the FAST direct port syst. to better regulate each cyl.

    I shot it at 200 with no problems running 107 octane and the -2 plugs. I wasn't impressed witht he 100 shot and 150 was OK- the 200 shot is what I paid for!!! I will only run the 200 shot at the track and on race fuel and keep it at 150 to play witht he ricers on 95.

    Next move:
    Car in shop getting Dynatech headers/cats

    2 months:
    Heads/cam/rockers

    4months:
    gears

    5 months: forged everything, bigger injectors, in-line fuel pump and a 350-400 shot of NOS.

    What do you all think? Any other (cheaper/better) way to get my C5 to 450 rwhp na? Any other way to shoot more NOS safely? Thanks for the feedback.
