    Im going to say somewhere around 75-100 shot, at which point your factory injectors will most likely be maxed out.

    Safest????

    A 0 shot (none at all)

    you can run upwards of 100 to 125 but you need the tuning and possibly larger fuel pump to handle the extra fuel you need to stay rich enough.

    Don't advise any spray without adjusting fuel for it.

    Dry...err...you might want to upgrade your injectors and fuel pump first. If you run a wet shot, you only really have to upgrade your pump.

    Yes I understand it's an obvious answer to say a 0 shot, but I was looking at wat the highest I could go before having to replace internals. And I think I am just going to use the money on heads and a good cam anyways.

    for a dry shot I wouldn't spray anything over 125. Even then the tuning has to be right and you'll need a new fuel pump.

    thanks, yea cause I seen some kits for like 600 bucks dry shot that is, and they were 125 shots, but I figured that would be kind of pushing it without having to change something out, quick easy power and tq in a bottle but not worth the damage to the motor that could be easily done.

    yea because if I am not correct a dry shot is in front of your maf so your computer does all the adjusting to the fuel to a certain extent, but on a wet shot its behind the maf, so your computer cannot do the proper adjustments necessary so you will run very lean. So I would say thats a good 10-4 ghost rider.

    to be safe a tune would be best and you need to pull timing dont go over a 100 dry shot with out changing fuel pump. your 28 lbs injectors are good for 400 hp.
    IMO i go with a wet shot I run a 125 shot with stock injectors and fuel pump with a tune. handles it all day long. to me a dry shot depends too much on your MAF

    I am not going to answer that question because I do not know, but like everybody else is saying if you want it to work and not blow skyhigh then a tune is a must. Expecially when you start upgrading the fuel section on your car, spray is considered a forced induction and what do you do with every other forced induction you put on your car you have to get a tune all goes hand and hand.

    yes - a wet shot is spraying fuel along with NOS.

    Thats what I thought. This is my firt time using nos on a late model fuel injected car. I have some experience with older carburated cars with nos.
