I throw a window switch in there...if it isn't at the rpm window start, it doesn't power on the solenoid, if it isn't at WOT, the solenoid won't open.

You should be fine with using it once a day. I just wouldnt go through a bottle a day. If you were at the track and went through a bottle that would be fine just dont be doing that all the time. And you will need a rpm window switch, mine is set at 3000 and 6000.

^^Yup. You could do a 75, but that would be something you only want to use once in a while. 50 isnt as much of a hit on the engine and can be used more often.

so a 50shot obviously gives you somewhere or exactly 50hp, i'm curious about the torque gain. I saw a dyno for an RX-8 once with a 75shot of nitrous.. the hp went just about 75 but the torque spiked nearly 100lb.ft.. is that normal?

Yes, its normal. Nitrous will give you more torque than horsepower.
