    what kind of kit are you getting? you probrably should have posted this in the nitrous section. I run 150 shot NX wet kit right now, no tuning whatsoever and it runs like a champ. these kits are made to run with stock tuning so your fuel and nitrous jets are matched to provide you the correct AFR so you wouldnt have to worry about that at all. Only tuning that would really be recommended would be to retard your timing a couple degrees but most people dont (such as myself) and I have had no issues.

    if you are on a stock tune, you'll be fine. if you are going over a 100 shot, then change you plugs to autolite 103, or equivalent.

    as far as a tune goes, you'll have to ask them what they do for that price.

    I have a 100 wet shot on a '98 C5 automatic--Also a NX --A dry kit converted to a wet kit--They reccommended that I install a window switch and a TPS switch.As far as the plugs--Stock heat range is OK (TR-55) but they did reccomend taking off the platinums and installing copper core plugs. As far as the timing goes--they said I should be fine with stock--But did advise logging it for knock retard to be safe--which i did and I had none. Total timing at WOT is set at 25* (stock LS6 heads ) The corvette being fy-by- wire was a bit of a challenge to get all the right components .--but it all works great--The window switch they said is needed for anything over 75 HP---my shift points are at 6300 rpm so i have the switch set to shut everything down at 5900 rpm ----The rpm's drop to around 4000 rpm between shifts so I have it activate at 4300 rpm.

    a window switch isn't need just because you go past a 75 shot. it's always a reccomendation. i've ran 150+ without a window switch for years.

    i have seen people run these switches for nitrous... there is a momentary switch, you could use for purging,and several other rocker switches... but, there is a lot of other stuff here too, as far as lighting accessories go...
