this prob isnt the best place to ask this since this is a FI question but i dont wanna start a new thread for a simple question. How high of a nitrous shot can i expect to use safely on stock internals. I am expereinced with nitrous and i plan on using a WoT switch and a window switch so please no lectures on the dangers of nitrous. I plan on pretty much coping thebestthaticouldo's set before the kit but just trying to get a good idea of what to look into. also Besthtaticoudo whats your duty cycle look like woth 28lbs injectors?

well, you should start a new thread. you are posting in a sticky, try and keep it on topic. but a TUNED vehicle can run about a 75 shot in 2 stages. maybe a bit more.

Right 75 is the average... any more and you're on borrowed time. But i've heard reports of vehicles taking 100 shots a FEW times before they blew up. As long as you're reasonable nitrous is a great power adder... and works great with high comp NA engines.

C-F-M has everything u need. FWIW you'll only need forged rods/pistons. The zetec block and crank are both stout enough to handle anything u can throw at them N/A
