I have the NO Progressive and it does not adjust timing or fuel. To adjust the fuel you change jets. And to adjust timing you can reflash the PCM, use the IAT resister mod, EFIL COS or the LNC-002(or similar timing box).

The progressive does have a built in electronic TPS, window switch, progressive nitrous ramp and gear lockout though which are very helpful if you have traction problems.

Hmmm...So pretty much I need a 'Delay Box' if I dont want to reflash my PCM. How does the tuning work when your not on the bottle?
Would a 'nitrous outlet mini digi-set time delay' work? is there a device that will pull my timing before a run, and put my timing back to stock

As for the nitrous backfire a friend of mine ran a 150 shot in his mustang older stock 5.0 every day all the time his bottle was filled no problems at all when his car passed 200000 mile mark he had his nos on just for kicks that car never had a problem sold the car running great pure stock 5.0 his was a wet kit he did tell me only go with a wet kit they are the best and safest? I plan to put a 150 shot on my 2010 camaro 2s pure stock a 150 wet kit should be fine without any worries.

Never used it and had not even hear of it till now. But, it looks like it delays when the nitrous activates vs actually pulling timing.

If you don't want to reflash the PCM then you will need a timing box like the one I posted.

You could use the IAT trick but you would still need to set it up in your tune.

I want to kill my last write up two messages ago the old mustang did have forged pistons after researching my camaro ss i see the pistons are pretty crappy for nos I would not do it with cast pistons just a fruit for thought after reading they are cast i immediatly thought damn i hope my writeup did not make somebody go try this I have learned that the stock pistons in the camaros L99/Ls3 engines have problems with cracking the powdered rods should be ok if you are running stock pistons cause the pistons will break first but I will say I just would not try it I work with castings and forgings and know how they are and will only say forgings are great casting have a high percent that dont pass pmi for internal cracks. I would like to hear from anyone useing nos on the stock motor and how much you are getting away with for now? I have been searching for a dropin piston kit for these motors with no luck yet. my goal is to change the rods and pistons and run a 175 shot with a tune pretty simple the stock crank is fine now is not so hard on cranks they are much stronger than rods and pistons.

Better late than never, lol.

Here is the suggested breakdown:

NGK Plug Part# = Shot Size
B6EFS(1 Step Colder) 3177 = 0-75
BR7EF(2 Steps Colder) 3346 = 75-150
B8EFS(3 Steps Colder) 1049 = 150-225
B9EFS(4 Steps Colder) 1085 = 225-300

I decided to go forced induction. I have a practically brand new Nitrous Outlet kit on my 2010 SS and it contains EVERYTHING you need to make a very fast, very safe, very controlled system. I posted in the members classifieds if anyone is interested.
