Hey, sorry I didn't see this sooner, I don't look here much anymore.

If you want to do the max possible go with a direct-port system. You can piece them together pretty easily. I did. I think Supersix said they had cylinder head lifting issues at 200shot. That was also with ARP head studs torqued to 100lb/ft. That same car also ran a 125shot perfectly fine in to the 10's in the 1/4mi. I think a 150shot would be fine, that's the most I would go if you want to keep the engine in one piece. Maybe torquing the heads a little more would keep them down, who knows. I wonder if there's room to tap for larger head studs...? Mine is capable of 250hp but I'll be running much lower compression, and I don't think I'll use more than a 100shot.

well the ore you use the more it strains your engine. frankly i think you better of spending your money on something else. nitrous just seems way to harsh to put in an engine unless specifically made for it. but hey your car have fun with it.

You obviously didnt read what his motor has in it internal wise. Also, don't tell people information that you yourself dont know about, you come of as ignorant and uninformed.

Have you ever used nitrous? Have you ever read up on it? Do you know of it's negative effects? Hell if you knew any of these 3 things you wouldn't have responded with that statement. Nitrous can be used on ANY engine. AS LONG AS you tune it properly and know it's limits. Obviously even if you tune a 1.0L metro for a big nitrous shot, it's not going to handle a 300hp nitrous setup. But there are people safely running 25hp shots on them with no problems after 20k miles. It's about octane rating, spark plug choice, a/f ratio, timing curve, and cylinder pressure.

no i dont use nitrous. i've read up on it a few time even thought a bout doin it myself(dry 75 shot). and for side effects blown motors, melting of ones engine, seems like too many things can go wrong with it, its expensive, its not street legal atleast not in cali where i live. i mean sure you could run a 25 shot. but its not for me and i think there are better things to spend money on that can get you 25 hp and cost the same if not less.

No, lack of fuel blows motors, not nitrous please stop posting misinformation before someone actually believes you.

Do you know how a piston melts? Lean condition. Nitrous is actually very misleading, what it's nick-name SHOULD be is Oxide. Because the nitrous is only a carrier for the oxygen to bond to as it travels to the engine. The oxygen is what's needed for fuel to burn. Nitrous oxide is an accelerant. Lack of fuel melts pistons and blows engines. If you have it tuned properly it will be fine. I ran a 75shot on mine for a bottle before I decided to go a different direction, and I never had a problem with it. There are several people who used 125shot with good dyno tunes by professional tuners who never had a problem with it.

i wasnt posting misinformation. i said exactly what you said. too much and you'll destroy your motor, and you need to configure or build up the motor so it can withstand it

you do not need to build the motor, any motor can handle a shot of nitrous, as long as it's used within reason. Done now, thanks.

Wow you guys should meet up in person and handle this. j/k I dont remember the brand or what shot it's set up for, But my friend has a complete kit just sitting around. It came out of a 03 mustang GT. The guy put on a kenny belle and pulled the spray. The guy was really close to my friend and i and gave it to him as a gift but my friend never installed it and sold his car. Send me a PM and I'll get your number
