Nitrous Help Please!

So, I just recently installed a nitrous kit I picked up. Before I start spraying, I have 50,75,100,125, and 150 jets for fuel and nitrous side. I don't wanna go big yet because I have a tune from a dyno shop and they added timing. I have CAI, LT headers and cat back, the basics.. SO to the questions. 1. what could I safely spray while having timing added 2. what plugs should I put in for a 50, 75 etc. 3. Since it'll be awhile before I go heads and cam should I just buy a hand held programer or hp tuners? The amateur that tuned my car didn't take off the govenor or tune the tranny and he won't get back with me... Any help is great! Thankyou - Kody (it's a l99 car by the way.. yes i bought an auto haha)

Get with a professional tuner that knows what they are doing before you spray it. If not your going to be very sorry you didn't.

Just saying. educate yourself before you spray and go to a quality shop if you want a turn key system. You pull about 2 degrees for every 50 hp shot never add timing. Do u have a window switch? Colder plugs installed? Non projected plugs? Afr meter ? Factory or after market cats? List goes on.

I appreciate all the help! I've been doing alot of research that's why I haven't sprayed yet! I know I need to pull timing but I thought It was 2 degrees for every 25 shot? And no, no window switch I have I have a arm switch and a little hand held remote for the fire. I'm not sure what plugs I'll need yet and I have a catless exhaust. So everyone says tune first? Don't just get a hand held to pull timing?

So for the time being I'd be alright to spray a 50 shot with colder plugs and 91 octane? Because I'm in Oklahoma and theres no 93 octane around.

if you were running stock tune with stock timing, then you would be fine... but guessing your running more than stock timing with your tune...

with 91 i wouldnt , i had the plugs in 2 step colder plugs and i put a jet on the fuel side up a lil higher then it should have been and had 93 oc (4 or so gallons) and 110 oc about a gallon and a half mixed. it was a bit risky , but i took that chance. 9/10 it would be ok but it only takes 1 time. and if it happens just hope it blowes the air filter off and not the manifold and hood. lol. how much timing u running atm n/a

I have no idea how much timing the guy added. It runs its ass off for just full exhaust. I had it tuned about a year ago and no problems with it so far (knock on wood).. At the time I had no clue about timing, I'm 19 and just learning by experience, google, and Camaro5 haha!

I would be careful. If you have a tune most likely he added some timing. I would verify but you are most like going to have to pull some timing out of the tune.

as far as plug i would go with BR7EF NGKs. The stock number on those are 3346.

If you have questions feel free to contact me. I can guide you.

So some good news! I found a near by shop that specializes in 5th gens! Their Car FX in Tulsa, OK. I talked to the man earlier today and they mainly do boosted cars and he only has 3 Nitrous cars under his belt. Does anyone know by chance what the stock timing should be? I'm thinking i'll just have him pull enough timing for 150 so I can spray whatever up to a 150 and not worry about it. So pull 6 degrees of timing and use BR7EF NGKs plugs?

Every car and combo is different you should dyno and track tune it to be 100%. After you get a handle on the tune on the dyno pull an extra 2 just to be safe and make a 1/4 run and immediately shut the car off at the line. Coast to a safe spot off the track and pull the plugs to make sure you fuel and timing are good. Do that until you are happy with the results.

Pulling 6 for 150 is just a baseline and most of the time I have found that the fuel side is always rich with the recommended jets.
