    quick search says he has a 2002 SS with all the SLP options. you really have to do nothing as far as fuel and timing is concerned. to be a little on the safe side, bring timing down 2*.

    I left my search detective tools in the truck....
    Go a lower heat range of plugs and do not use platinum tip plugs....

    how about a 125 shot wet. I have the nozzle shooting right after my mass air into the intake. do i need to retard with a 125? also when should i hit it, rpm? i have 55 nitrous and 36 fuel jets in there now and havent hit it yet. i dont want to blow it up by any means.
