    too many miles for a bottle?

    My 3.8l camaro is about to hit 90k miles and I was wondering if it was too late to run a small nitrous shot, preferably 50-75.

    Get a window switch so your not engaging your nitrous on the shift. Once its in gear and the nitrous kicks in then you will be fine. This will also help prevent you from blowing out yoru rear end. Also with the manual you will want to set to the top of the window switch to shut down a couple hundred RPMs before your rev limiter hits so you dont have a nitrous backfire. Other than that just get a Fuel Pressure safetly switch and I Wide open throttle switch and you will be good to go.

    BTW: I have a new digital window switch for sale if your interested

    Yup, get a window switch and if you want to you could always do a leak down test on the engine.
