big hit

How many of you guys are running a big shot of nitrous on your cars? It doesn't have to be a thunderbird although that would be cool. Lets keep this to 150 shot+

No one that I know of with a stock 4.6 street car is running that much. But help yourself and see what its got.

If you are running a stocker though, be forewarned it might do it once and it might not do it at all.

Its your fun, whatever the consequences. My stocker see's only 125. Even set up as safely as possible thats the limit I'd push mine.

Good luck.

Built engine's will certainly take more but again its all in the shot, corresponding mods and tune. Even BUILT motors will come apart/break if not used correctly. Its the same with any power adder car.

Thanks for the props. 1MTNCAT runs a stocker PI combo with just typical bolt-ons other than the "Bullitt Intake/TB" . Nothing special really yet It runs well!!!!

I ran 150hp jets in my car ONCE. OMG was it a kick in the pants. Traction was non-existant. Most of the time I just ran 100hp jets which was plenty safe and loads of fun. I always ran one size higher on my fuel jet to make sure I stayed plenty rich too. Probably cost a few hp, but I'm still running the engine today.

God Bless and Fly Low!
