Nitrous + auto

I was wondering if i should let the nitrous keep going when it shifts or if it will blow the motor up. I am using a 50 shot wet kit from NX. Right now I have it hooked up to a push button to let off at about 6000 rpm and hit it again after it shifts.

I had the throttle switch, but with an auto I just hold it to the floor the entire time and the nitrous would spray while it is shifting. I want to know if this will kill the motor.
