Getting Nitrous But First a Couple ?'s
I talked to my local dyno/speed shop and they are going to install a Compucar Dry nitrous system with 75, 90, and 125 horsepower jets it is going to be activated by a window switch. They are also going to install 4.10 gears, a limited slip differential, Mark VIII driveshaft, Maruader torque converter and the SCT Excalibrator 2 Tuner. I have heard that i may need to get a high flow fuel pump as well, but as i am only going to be using the 90hp jet i am not absolutely positive it is necessary. Also what would be the benifit or the Marauder converter over stock because if its not much more than a traction benifit i will not do that to save some labor cost but i will be doing it after. If you have any insight into the necessity of the fuel pump and the Marauder TC as well as other necessary supporting mods to keep my car runnig please let me know as this is all going to start coming together very soon.
Thanks in advance
Edit: it seems that the others that have nitrous are split between getting the fuel pump and not but as the shop said a fuel pump is not priority on such a small hit... if you have any conflicting evidence (ie. blown motor) please let me know... as for the converter i think i'm going to do it but just convince me
