    Just got my nitrous kit installed

    Just had a nitrous outlet wet plate kit installed on my 1998 TA and abolutely love it! This stuff is so much fun. Running a 100 shot right now but will probably step it up to a 150 eventually. I'll get some pics up soon.

    Just curious, how much difference would a 75, 100, 150 shot help with a 1/4 mile run?

    in theory 10hp = .1 reduction in a 1/4 mile.

    thanks.
    What cam are you going with? My cam is one of the reasons it was able to pick up 120hp on a 100 shot...the cam is very n2o friendly. The right cam will do wonders

    Just a livernois stage 1. Wanted to keep drivability good. I picked up 108 rwhp and almost 140 rwtq with a 125 with the cam that is in it now. Supposedly according to Rick at Livernois, this cam is very "nitrous friendly". Find out tomorrow after the dyno!!

    What cam did you use? I'm wanting the same results. Also what have you done to the bottom end?

    Cccullins, who are you asking? My cam is a 235/239 on a 109lsa with high lift. No forged parts with 94000 miles and it's my daily driver.

    It's actually very very streetable. Except for the sound of the lope you can't really tell until you smash it. I just dont like racking up the miles, but I'm going to college in a few weeks so it'll be sitting for months at a time.

    Drive through a parking lot in first gear at 800-1000 RPMs in first gear without riding the clutch

    Cams your size and larger can be funny things... sometimes as a tuner you expect that a lot of time will be needed and then they end up being easier than yesterday's small cam to tune with little driveability issues except for that thing I mentioned above.

    I had a customer with a boltons car (M6, he had driven for 4 years that way) go out and buy PRC heads and a MS4 cam. He kept trying to idle around the parking lot in first gear and told me that he SHOULD be able to drive that way... Most people instinctively ride the clutch, but everytime he would come to a stop, he would run first gear down to idle and fuss because he couldn't drive that way any more. He said he reads all of these people that say that cam 'drives like stock'... I told him to ask him the same thing of those folks I asked of you.

    It doesn't drive "like stock", but its extremely streetable for how big the cam is. And in parking lots I just get some speed in 1st gear then put it in neutral and coast, then put it in 2nd around turns...does the trick.
