man for one you will need a tune. also you need to know how much n2o you want to run, and then decide on what other mods you are doing.

post what mods you have and how far you want to go

Mods are Cold Air Intake and Toms tune...Increased Shift pressure( tire chirping 1st to 2nd) Goal is 175 to 200 to the wheels. Dont want a massive Shot of N20 but it has to be a wet shot . Future mods= Svt/Toms Header, ORP , Cams, Full 2.5" Tru bendz Exhaust, and Eventually Forged internals

ok you will need an n2o tune from tom, i would shoot 35-50. header and exhaust will help. a good flowing head to match a set of comp stg 2 cams will also help you. I love 65mm TB in the auto it helps lag off the line. cam gears are also a must.

well, it depends what he wants. he can get there with just nitrous and a sweet tune from tom, if he's not going FI, and he just wants great gas mileage w/ occaisonal power on tap, then just use the spray. a header won't hurt, nothing NA mods will hurt for nitrous, just the difference of how much you wanna spend when ultimately, he's not going to go any higher either way. 200 whp w/ a 100 shot or 200 whp w/ a 50 shot is still ultimately 200 hp. you really can't go much higher cause of the torque you will make on an auto. (this is why a JRSC is really good for an auto) so it depends if he wants to spray 70 hp or 100, either way, he's spraying, do you want to spend another 1000 in mods to get the same hp? its up to him. guys have done 125 before on stock bottom end, but it was dual stage. its all up to his budget.

I would do. Intake,header,exhaust,75shot tune. thats 200hp all day everyday reliable, and very fun. Don't worry about cams or internals unless your planning on running a 200 progressive shot lol.

one of the things i am saying is you can have a higher HP/TQ all the time and then spray for the boost. it would be more fun to drive and make it look much cleaner
