I think a wet kit is safer IMO, but the stock fuel pump cannot handle 75 for more than quick bursts, so a feul rail and a pump would be in order! Also, do you have forged pistons in there and what fuel are you running, colder plugs are a good idea with a 75 shot, It will take a 100 shot, but the stock pistons do not hold it for long, due to lack of fuel...again I always spray WET.
