N20 on a 5.0

My friend talked me into considering it, so what would be the safest shot to run on a stock 5.0, except CAI and exhaust? Wet or Dry?

1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 Sport 4.6L

Daily Driver, 38mpg!

at least Ford can pay their bills and not go on welfare like GM and Chrysler.

Thats cool that you are thinking about nitrous. On the 5.0s do a wet setup. I would suggest anywhere between a 75-125 shot. Have fun

I know 150 is too much. (a friend of mine blew the ring lands out of his 95 GT)

I run a 100 shot and have zero problems but I also pulled two degrees of base timing just to be on the safe side and I run 93 octane with a performance chip. My advice is to start with a 50 shot and work your way up.
