    I would run a 150 shot with it. The LS1 can take a 150 shot with no issues at all. Just be sure to replace the spark plugs with TR6's and a walbro fuel pump would give even added safety even though it isnt needed.

    my buddies want to run nitrous on a lt1 were not sure which camaro to do it on, we have a 95 a4 (shift kit) z-28 125,000 miles and a 97 a4 ss 49,000 miles both are stock, just airfoils. my buddy just got the ss and is making payments, so we dont want to break anything on that one and give him another payment. z-28is payed off. we test ran both of the camaros and the ss got ahead by a car

    were racing a 03 gt mustang 5spd, it has some boltons like pullies, intake, cat-back ehxaust, flip chip etc... and nitrous not sure what hp shot but maybe some thing like a 100 shot???

    which one would you suggest running nitrous on???

    and what hp shot can they handle???

    we should be able to get some nitto 555r for the rear.
    should we chage out the plugs, gap???

    thanks

    i agree with that, just change the plugs like he said... you plan on doin a wet shot, dry shot, d/p??
    I'm told you shouldnt spray thru the shifts either, unless you like replacing trannys

    No, it would not hurt a thing. A 150 shot would be more fun!!!

    Just run a WOT switch. Use it with your regular pushbutton just to make sure you're at WOT when you spray. Spray when it hits 3 grand to be safe and it won't backfire. Let off the button, shift, and hit it again.

    If you're on the street with nittos and a 125-150 shot, it's gonna blow the tires away if you spray in 2nd.

    I run a 125 wet shot on my 98 daily driver with 79k with no problems. I simply changed the plugs to the ngk tr6's and am considering going to a 150 shot.
