Here's it is simple....
You can use nitrous, however a 50-75hp shot is not going to get it done. Nitrous is torque not boost, you don't need a converter really, its just a waste of money. You do however need better clutches inside the transmission and more aggressive shifting (left in D).
Hold on here are you seriously saying a converter is a waste of money? You must not know anyone who installed a high stall converter in their car, if you did they would tell you it's one of the single best mods you can do to any automatic car. I have a Edge Racing 3500 stall and it is quite amazing how much faster it gets the car going drag racing and around the street.
What is a waste of money is clutches in a transmission if you don't need them. What you really do need is a plate and fin transmission cooler and higher line pressure especially for only a 50-75 shot. I recommend an upgraded valve body.
The rest of your information about nitrous is a great read.
