Lose the juice before you ruin a D23.

I don't think I got to explain what it will eventually do?

Going turbo ;) no need to worry pal, and a tune engine with a nitrous kit is as reliable as a turbo I don't know what u mean with the "eventually do"

If you think nitrous is not going to do anything to your motor, then I must have not seen right on other threads of guys running 75 shot, and there piston had a hole right in the center of it when they took it apart.

It's just my opinion, but I've seen atleast three threads about it in my 2-3 years of hanging out on here.

No, I never ran boost. IDK, all power to ya if it's working for you with no damage or lose of compression.

But I just never want to take the risk. Maybe if I see you pull your motor apart one day, and I see no evidence of the spray at all, then I'd change my mind about juice.

BTW: Cause everyone and their mother has probably asked you..... Who tuned it?
