    When is it ok to hit the juice?

    Im spraying 150 shot (rpm window switch activation). Well I've got a 3200 stall, does it matter if I have it come b4 im at 3200rpm from a roll or from a stop coming off the line at the strip. If it does matter at what rpm should i have it come on?

    Using a window switch and a wide open throttle position switch it is safe to activate it at 3000rpm. And for a stock shift points the window switch should turn the nitrous off at 5500rpm if I'm not mistaken. Try it out and if your hitting the rev-limiter back it off 100rpm and try it again. Good luck and hopefully you've upgraded your fuel pump to be hitting 150hp shot.

    Yikes.

    I was at the track 2 weekends ago and had my window switch set to hit at 2400 and off at 6100 with a 150HP wet kit on Nitto 555RIIs. NO ISSUES. As long as you're tuned for it, you should be able to hit that low.

    As far as hitting it before your TC's stall, I don't see a problem with it at all. Might even raise your stall RPM a bit by sending more power to it before its fully engaged... after all stall speed is a function of the amount of power delivered to it.

    the sooner you can use it, the lower the ETs will be. what's a safe rpm point? the manufacturers, for liability reasons, will tell you no lower than 2500 rpms. hitting lower than the stall point of the converter doesn't matter. it'll flash the converter to a higher point than rated anyway.

    i've hit a 150 shot as low as 1800 rpms on a stock converter. hell, all stock 99TA. NA the car went 13.80. on the 150, it went 12.05.

    Also when should I have it cut off at? I have it cutoff at 6000rpm. Is this too high?

    i spray through the shifts with mine. if you are a m6, then about 100 rpms before you shift.

    Don't be scared. Get the kit installed and get it dyno tuned. Nothing to worry about at all if its tuned.
