    I ran my set up just like I like my girls ! lol Anyways I went with the wet because I am mostly bolt on and have done nothing internaly so its a little safer then the dry, but everyone will have there own oppenion.

    both are fine to use. one isn't any safer than the other. the only issue with running a dry kit is nozzle placement. getting it drilled into the lid and pointed in the right direction towards the MAF is critical in getting all you can out of it. also, if you want to go above 125 shot, then a fuel pump and larger injectors might be in order. with a wet kit, none of this matters.

    with a wet kit, is the extra needed fuel suppl;ied from the fuel rail? Is there enuf pressure there to be sufficient?

    the wet nitrous kit is the way to go:_) i am a firm believer in nitrous and have used it in all my sports cars. not only is a wet shot safer but with it you have the extra fuel need not to retard your timing to much.

    Isn't it -1 degree per every 50 HP shot? And less for wet kits?

    Dry kits are made for rental cars!! Quick installs.....
    I can't see ANY reason to run a dry kit other than that.
    I have been playing with the bottle for 15 years now and other than rentals and a handfull of cars brought to me to tune that already had dry kits installed.
    No I have NEVER had a backfire or a fuel solenoid not work.....That is a pretty good one I hear on here though about why not to run a wet kit.
    With the wet kit I can adjust the A/F right where I want it.
    And if I have a customer that I know neglects his car and bullshits me about runnung good fuel I can just up jet the fuel side a small amount so it is on the fatr side as a added safety net.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    with the LS1, you can go up to 150 shot with stock timing tables. just put in colder plugs and gap them to .035".

    this is very true:_) its not like a ford where you have to retard your timing every time depending on the shot to be on the safe side

    Regarding the spark plugs-
    Put in a set of TR6's a week ago and the car runs great when its cold, as soon as it heats up there are misfires and general hesitation.
    Put in a new set of TR55's and it runs great again.
    Yes, all gaps were right, the TR6's did not show any anomolies when I pulled them out.
    Anyone else seen this?

    Know none were dropped, already thought of that, everything looks fine on all the plugs, no fouling of any kind.
    Going to take them into work Monday and see if I can't adapt our aircraft spark plug tester to auto plugs.
    Ran a few 75 wet shots thru today with zero problems, other than the freaking wheel spins!
