SVT Nitrous

Questioning nitrous for my car. Searched the forum quite a bit and read the Nitrous thread by Viney and also a thread that Tom was involved in. I have put some items together in a list after reading both threads and know a little more about what to buy to have a safe set up.

But what I did not see was an actual safe number for gains? Maybe I missed it? I'm wanting a 75 wet shot set up, is this too much for the svt motor?

I have a friend with an RX8 that has been neck n neck with me performance wise for the longest time and he just set up a 50 shot... fail

Ah, Thanks WD. My eyes always seem to skip this section of the forum for some reason.

And, you still didn't get much help.
Or, were most of your questions answered in those other threads?

Safe can go a long way , What octane , if you use 110 octane I would say a 100 shot would be safe with proper pills and tune

On 93 I would say start with a 50 shot and work your way to MAYBE a 75 with a good tune and AF Guge

What are your plans

Tom

Ok thats what I was lookin for. The other threads didn't seem to just state a safe shot.

I plan on running 93 octane, with quite the list of mods to go with the nitrous upgrade.

Going with your tune.
180 thermostat
orp
Probably all of the recommended extra's for the nitrous stated in the big nitrous thread.
so on so forth.



The car only gets driven for events and on the weekends or the occasional day during the week. Nitrous would rarely get used, its just there for a lil extra oomph when needed.
