    How Much Horsepower?

    I know this is probably stupid but i was wondering what kind of horsepower i might be making. it's a 02' Z28 A4 with 150 dry shot nitrous, k&n filter, and flowmaster cat-back. it's best run was a 11.94 @ 118. i was guessing a little over 400 with the nitrous, anyone have an guestimate?

    if it was a dry wet shot you really don't need a tune, but dry shot did you install it or did you buy the car like this?

    telling people to spray a 150 shot on a stock tune and saying its fine is just plain dumb, he needs a tune for it to be "safe"

    I trust what some guys on here say, there is a thread about it. No i have not sprayed a 150 shot but if you want to gimme the cash to buy a kit I gladly will No its isnt safe, kinda like driving without a seatbelt but it can be done and done without ill effects most of the time.

    alright then , take a seat and let me tell you, you should get a tune. 250 dollars or so will save you your motor.

    Yes I know this. Just like headers or a cam swap you should get a tune but most of the time it will be ok till you do.

    I am with you on this man!
