People that mention nitrous get flamed alot by ingnorant people that no nothing about nitrous and say "your going to blow up!"

nitrous is not flamable!

Get a compression test before you do any heavy modding

I'm selling a 10 pound nitrous NX tank from my old set up if you want one cheap :)

I'm running 14's NA @ 164 whp, so a 60 shot will put you in to the 14's. but not a 14.0, you would need around a 125 shot or so on a motor w/ stock hp ratings. and you can't do that on stock internals!! well, maybe w/ a 4 stage progressive shot, but still, not likely. only turbo or sc and maybe a lil spray w/ it!!

there are a few people on here that run 75 shots consistantly w/o any engine problems(prolly tuned tho), beyond that u will need some internals. But the tranny wont hold up for too long esp with and auto. There are a bunch of people im one that have turbos with stock internals. My turbo yeilds 75 whp or more and my engine runs great, howver my auto trans is shittin the bed, lol.

thats my drag time.

and ya, ur tranny may hold up for a while, but better have a spare sitting around. The JRSC w/ BBK has trouble on an auto tranny!! and they don't make more than 180 whp on a stock motor!
