    Dry shot vs Wet shot

    What are the pros and cons. Im thinking of spraying my 99 SS. What kind of system will be good, ive never ran nitrous in any of my cars? Is a 150 shot as safe as everyone says they are on these cars?

    thanks in advance

    Well a dry shot depends totally on your injectors to do everything...let them load up and your engine goes bye bye.....that bothers me....I run a 100 wet shot.....

    My mechanic say WET system is the best,I'm going to play it safe and not run over a 100 HP shot> A 150 Shot is a little too much for a mainly stock block motor

    If you want to run small shot like a 50 or 75 a dry would be fine.
    But I prefer a Wet shot. I ran a 150 shot for two years.

    Hey man.....your speak words of wisdom oh wise one
    You betcha....I was after torque....If you would have told me 6 months ago I would be running nitrous I would have said you were high.....Old School you know After looking at all the turbo's and blowers I kept coming back to these local LS1 guys with nitrous just kicking the crap out of the "FI" community....with no ill effects to the motors...plus I really like my GTO on all motor...and did not want to screw that setup up.....so the nitrous "turn it on/turn it off" really appealed to me...so I began listening/studying (Man is the internet full of internet experts who are full of shit ) and ended up with the following setup....
    Nitrous Express Wet Kit
    10.lb bottle, remote bottle opener, bottle pressure guage, blow down tube, fuel pressure safety switch, fuel pressure guage, MSD Window Switch, WOT Throtte switch, Bottle heater, Bottle blanket, purge kit, ...I am waiting on the center console guage pod to mount the in cabin bottle pressure and fuel pressure guages.....lastly....I had it all professionaly done.....and of course the most important thing....I had it tuned by a certified professional....A/F on the gas in the 11's.....so safety was priority number one with performance secondary....of course with it all in the performance is insane
    with just a 100 shot.....
    And at 6000 RPM on the bottle we never saw the fuel pressure drop below 48-50 lbs on the stock fuel pump....so we kept it.....
