    Either a dry or wet kit is safe and reliable. I would make a decision based on how much you want to spray. 100 or under maybe a dry. If over a 100 maybe a wet kit. The downside to a dry kit is if you want to go up in HP, you might have to upgrade your injectors at a point. Going with a wet kit the injectors don't come into play, so it could be cheaper in the long run.

    Yeah, I know about the injectors, and a dry kit, I run one on my mustang...

    I was just curious, as to if there were an obvious advantage, for either kit, on an LS1 ...

    I'll have to decide on how much I want to spray...not sure if I wanna stick to 100 or less, or 125 or more lol...

    Thanks,

    No, not really. Both will preform the same when jetted the same. On a dry kit you usually won't get the "torque spike" that you do with a wet kit. You can't go wrong with either kit.

    For a small 100 shot nothing beats the simple pre mass air flow kits, like the NOS 5177. Anything bigger than 125-150 shot and you need to start considering a fuel pump and injectors for the dry shot, and a fuel pump for the wet shot.

    Go with the wet kit for any serious amount of power.

    I agree go with a wet kit... wet kits are easy & safer & you dont have to worry about maxing out your injectors

    I laugh every time I hear the argument that wet is safer than dry, or vice versa

    why is that? IMO i would rather add the fuel so i KNOW for sure its not gona be running lean, rather than hoping the MAF & injectors can keep up with the extra demand.

    Dont get me wrong i wouldnt be against running a small (50-75) dry shot. But anything more than that I would rather run a wet shot.

    No need to hope, you can log you injector duty cycle and see where you are at.

    How do you KNOW you are adding ENOUGH fuel? The same argument goes both ways, so don't think I am sticking up for the dry kit. I simply KNOW that one kit is just as "safe" as the other, or "unsafe". Here is my first post on the topic...

    For a small 100 shot nothing beats the simple pre mass air flow kits, like the NOS 5177. Anything bigger than 125-150 shot and you need to start considering a fuel pump and injectors for the dry shot, and a fuel pump for the wet shot.
    Don't forget about that fuel pump for wet or dry.
