    Ya, if anything it'll just increase your stall speed a little bit... Go for it.

    I run a 3200 stall and I have my window switch set at 3000rpm,
    works great you just don't want to spray under 3000 rpms......

    who told you that? just about every nitrous manufacturer have in their instructions not under 2500 rpms, with NX saying this right off their website:

    The RPM level is not as important as is the motors ability to rev freely when the nitrous is engaged, I.E. If the vehicle is in low gear, nitrous can be engaged at any time, but if the vehicle is in a higher gear moving at a slow speed when the nitrous is engaged the engine will detonate and damage will occur.

    with my experience it is common not to spray under 3000 rpms, for the
    simple fact that if your car is going to stumble when you go WOT it will
    do it at 3000 or below and that would not be very safe on the bottle.
    Just a personal preference from my use and many others that I know.
    Most companies use 2500 rpm and thats fine. There are always exceptions
    to every rule, but when giving advise its good to play it on the safe side and
    let them start off slow and take smaller steps. Sorry if I offended you in any
    way but I have been spraying for many safe years and I'll stick with my
    experience.......

    i don't like open ended definitive type statements without justification. your last post is a better response.

    i've hit it as low as 1800 rpms. motor still going.

    I just hit my 3600vig with a 200 shot out of the hole for a 1.483 60 foot time. The problem is the rearend gave up on the second launch with the 200 shot. I have been spraying it with a 150 shot and no problems. 200 ouch!

    I have sprayed 250 and 300 from a little over a idle for almost 2 years with the same car without even nipping a plug. That car has a 2500-2800 con. and it flashes about 3200 as soon as you grab the kit. After I fully stage I bring it to 1800 and then floor it and grab the kit at the same time. 1.28 60 fts ALL day with a 275/60/15 drag radial......

    Sure you can have it on a window switch but I NEVER HAVE nor will on any of my cars. I always have total control of the kit with a button in my hand. Sometimes it will be wires in series with a wot switch.

    Make sure you have a good fuel pump that can keep up with the needs of the motor and the kit!!

    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    as soon as I stage my toggle switch has always been on and I footbrake to about 2800 rpms on a 3200 stall and just nail it from there. as fast as I can get my foot the the floor is as fast as I engage my nitrous on my stall converter.

    Some "loose" stalls may not like the nitrous and you'll get the "blowing through the converter" effect where your motor on spray will over-power your converter. It just depends on how much you spray and so forth. I suspect you will not have a problem. But the only way to find out is to give it a try..
