so i got a question before i decide i want to do it? would our motor be able to handle stage 2 cams(crane) and a 50-75 shot of nitrous? probably a dumb question but i just want to make sure!

that pretty much sums it up.
50: yes IF you do everything right.
75: most likely going to need to do some supporting work.

the cams with spray is an interesting question, though. boost is picky about overlap. i've seen a lot of v8s with huge cams and spray, but i don't know what they had going on inside.

You might be able to get away with a 50 shot. If you build the motor up and its close to 200whp then you will have problems with that 50 shot. You could maybe get away with a 25 shot. You will have to get the tune just right for the cams and the nitrous shot. There are a lot of people running turbos with well over 200 whp, but when it comes to nitrous you shoving an instant 75 hp at the engine all at once and thats what is hard for the internals.

man i wish i had a recaro baby seat, although i am looking at a set of the recaro seats as well as the sparco's for the future. im not sure how much coin i wanna be shelling out though, mind you cool factor goes up a ton, lol.

also honhon, what do you think about a 25shot (for me in particlar) im only planning to do the i/e/h/tune and a set of stage 1 cams (havent decided between crane or crower) and the TB. will a 25shot be safe and i won't own myself in the future? i have like 0 know-how about this nitrous stuff, only that if you have too much of a spray not only will it explode the motor but it doesn't do the pistons any good either.

A 25 shot will be fine. Just make sure that you use a wet system, meaning that you spray both nitrous and fuel at the same time.

You you can have an arming switch. Then when you go WOT and between a certian RPM it will start srpaying. Mine is set at like 3000-6100 at WOT.
