    quick question

    Please only answer if you are 100% sure, because I can't afford another car right now. would it be safe to put like a 75 shot of nitrous on my 01 formula ls1 m6? it is pretty stock no cam or anything, I plan on using a wide open throttle switch and a window switch also is wet or dry shot safer? thanks!

    question is can you handle the power of nitrous,lol hell yes it will be safe as long as you get a good tuner also you can go up to roughly 150 hp shot on stock engine some people go more but not recommended.id say wet shot,theres no guarantees with anything till you try it,good luck

    its all in the tuner,how good he is makes a difference how it runs,also if your an m6 activated by window switch low rpm nitrous on high rpm off,very easy.ls1s love nitrous .

    i've put 150 right off the bat in both of my cars. ran 250 on my all stock motor in the black car. change to a lower heat range plug. put on your safety stuff and have at it.

    Wet and do at least a 100. Yes it is plenty safe buy a quality kit and have it installed by someone that is good with wiring!
    I would also recommend putting a button on the shifter or hand held on a cord in series with the wot switch so it's easy to let off the kit.
    If you read some of my other post I go into more detail on why this is a must for me and ALL cars I do for customers.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    With a stock tune a 75 shot is safe, I've sprayed my car like 12 times already on a 75 shot. All you need for a 100 shot to be safe is check your A/F ratio. You can put a slightly bigger fuel jet in to keep it rich for assurance as well. You can go 150 as well but have all your safety stuff on line. I'm going to set mine for a 125 shot without tuning. I am going to just check the A/F and keep it rich for the spray

    With the safety items you shouldn't have any problems spraying your DD.

    Thanks,

    You can spray a dry shot with no problem. Make sure the nozzle is before the mass air, this will enrichen your fuel trims, the cold nitrous will fake out the IAT sensor. Take 2 degrees of timing out to be sure. We have done this a our shop for years. I have been tunning LS1 for 5 years.

    I picked up a wet kit from HSW and have been spraying 150 wet shot with stock internals. So far so good. If you start with 100 you will be curious, then 125 and u will feel a lil kick then go 150 and you will be happy for a lil wihle
