    Intake, exhaust and free mods are a good starting point for what your planning to do. As far as kit choice, i've always liked TNT or NOS, but there are several other good kits on the market as well. Those are just the ones I have used time and time again, with success. I also recommend a nitrous controller which will allow you to control time delay/ramp-rate as well as a few other things, a bottle heater and remote valve opener. As far as plugs, the NGK TR6's work just fine; and last but not least a tune to handle the timing issues.

    The nozzle can give you a variety of injection points which can yield better atomization of the nitrous and fuel. For wires I like MSD and Nology. I had Nology HOT wires on my '98 LS1.

    nitrous

    ive been running a NOS 150 HP dry shot with NGK TR6 and taylor 10.4 mm wires for a few years now with no problem. i have a stock cube motor with all the bolt ons you can imagine. nitrous is awesome, the LS1 comes alive when it breaths it.

    Progressive controllers are overkill for 150HP. They're also harder on your solenoids since they pulse them to achieve the ramping up of the N2O.

    Plate systems are much more efficient and generally deliver more evenly to all cylinders than nozzles can.

    I've ran TR6's, but I prefer AR94s. Its a much better constructed plug than the NGKs. Go to a good parts store and ask for one of each and just look at them and tell me you can't see the difference yourself.

    Make sure your timing is set @ stock or lower for the 150 shot. If you're able to scan and spray @ the same time, you'll be fine as you can monitor the KR. You'll also want to monitor injector duty %. This will tell you if you need larger injectors and/or fuel pump upgrades to keep up.

    HTH,

    NOS Direct Port system here. 250HP shot. King of all "street" kits IMO. See Avator. Over $3000 invested.

    First off I would buy a Walbro 255 fuel pump. Second I would SeaFoam the motor to break up Any carbon build up in the ring pack or ring lands.
    Third I would plumb in a oil separator if your not running one now on the pcv system.
    OIL = DETONATION =
    I would recommend a plate kit. It will mount behind the throttle body and have much better distribution. Many out there.

    The Taylor's are a great wire. Remember the freaking wire is less than a foot so there isn't a huge difference in resistance due to the short length.

    The 150 shot on these motors will last for years if tuned right.

    I would strongly recommend the AutoLite Race Plug AR-94 which is a lot better suited plug for the high cylinder pressure and heat. Here is a picture to illustrate the drastic difference in design.

    AR Plug On the left and the NGK Plug TR6 on the right.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    What are the best spark plug wires to go with NOS? I heard MSD is the best way to go(less ohms=more spark) am i rite any suggestions.

    fuel pressure!

    nitrous pressure is important, but a single gauge on the bottle works just fine.

    Yeah, but what if your bottle is concealed???

    I use BMR's subframes. Very good product. UMI makes good subs as well.

    The MSD Super Conductor's are good yes. I like the Moroso Ultra 40 wires even better though. They are around 10 less ohm's and you can get them with the heat shielding and heat shrink already on the wires.
