I did, however, use a nitrous tune with 2 degrees retarded timing for "insurance" and the ablility to run 100 HP jets (which is what zex recommends for the 100 HP jet.). My tune came from the X-Cal 2 tuned by Darrin! I never had a problem with running a 75HP shot on a motor with 90,000 + miles on it. Some motors live forever, but some don't!
I said before and I'll say again, You risk any engine with a power adder, irregardless of sytem be it Nitrous, Blower, or turbo. Especially with a stock motor but it is not limited to just stock. I've seen plenty of Built ones go BOOM!! too.
IF, you keep the sytem to a 75 shot or less, in good tune, the proper equipment and used appropriately, Most times you will have no difficulty. I ran my factory stock one for nealy 6 years on the ZEX dry kit, most times at 125 HP level. It had over 116K miles on it and was running fine when I pulled it out. The week before it had gone a group of 13.9's-14.0's on the motor. 12.8's-9's on the bottle.
Bottom line is you can hurt or blow anything up, even NA stock engines with no power adders. Make sure the stock engine is in good shape prior to considering a power adder.
Again, get the appropriate system, install it correctly, follow the instruction and do as they say, not as you choose to do. Get all the corresponding equipment to safely utilize the system and make it safe (i.e Fuel pump, regulator, etc).
If you do that, then most of the parts you break will be the ones that need replacing anyway due to power. Transmissions, Halfshafts, Trac locs, etc.
