Nitrous

I want to add nitrous to my car but want to know what the best kit is. What's the most I can spray on the stock bottom end somewhat safely. The car is making 620whp on blower now. Thanks.

You're pretty much at the stopping point for a stock bottoms end right now...

Do you have a fuel system to support it?

Route I'd go personally. With a few additions of course (window switch, LPE Launch & Timing Controller #LNC-2000)

interesting...we had this discussion at the track last night. I'm wanting to spray like a 75 shot (would put me right on 600whp)...I think in the heat we have down here that it would actually make the car more consistant. Centris are way cooler running than the roots options, but this totally changes the ball game.
Make sure you have fuel, and +1 on the Lingenfelter timing controller.

There is people running over 900whp with stock shortblocks. With boost and bottle. Just make sure you put some good fuel in there with a good tune. and you will be fine on the bottle with a 75 shot

OP, you can just go with a dry shot as long as your fuel system / injectors can handle adding the extra fuel and your tuner knows what he is doing. And as long as your trans can handle spraying through the shifts

I'm having good success with that setup. Mine is on a WOT switch and that's it. Once I floor it the nitrous sprays until I cross the traps.

I was doing plenty of that blasting through the pine barrens of NJ with a few other cars. I was WOT into 5th if you get my drift. . On another note the differential is holding up LOL

I highly doubt you were using 900 rwhp on the street. Actually, there is no way you were. The road would never ever hold that. Not to mention you'd punt the car in front of you.

Well, there was legit no cars in front of me lol, you haven't been to the pine barrens then? My buddy in the vette behind me could chime in perhaps and verify as he wanted to see if he could keep up. Of course there was spinning a bit but once I hit 3rd it hooked right up from a 2nd roll.

It was fine all day on 750whp don't see why you think adding a bit more power is unfathomable. Not like the road shatters under the power LOL

Plenty of people run over 1000whp and exclusively street race. Yeah, it's dangerous and the traction won't be as good but it's not like it's impossible, especially at higher speeds.

Get a step colder plugs, and have your tuner check the plugs after each run to get the tune spot on. Tuning, octane and correct plugs are the key to nitrous reliability. Personally I'd use nothing but a wet kit for piece of mind.

I know countless cars spraying 200+ on sbe ls2, ls3 and ls7 vettes.

Southtexasbully sprayed a 250+ shot on a heads/cam/intake/dedicated fuel cell ls2 c6 vette as a weekend warrior for years.

carter01 spraying 250 & 300 shots on a sbe ls1 running single digits consistent

snotrod (corpus christi local) c6z laying down over 700 rwhp on a 150 pill spraying every chance he gets.

All in the tune OP.

I've been looking at adding 75/100 shot to my TVS2300 but not sure how to go about it. Dry, Wet, Plate, nozzle?

I have a zex 100 shot on a stock L99, stock cam, 12 psi boost. Make sure your fuel system can support it. Make sure your injectors are PLENTY big, they help eliminate the lean spike with the pressure drop on activation. Mount the box or solenoid as close as possible to the nozzle. The shorter the fuel line the lean spike is mostly eliminated. LNC 2000 for timing, but spraying a wet shot into boost cools the IAT alot so you might not need to retard timing on a 100 shot, and due to the intercooling you will get alot more than a 100 hp out of a 100 shot. The nitrous is cold and the enrichment fuel acts a little similar to meth. Start out with a fuel jet 50% larger than called for, like use the 100 nitrous jet with the 150 fuel jet. Will get you close, maybe a little too rich. Use non protruding electrode plugs that have cut back ground straps. NGK plugs caused light throttle misfires for me. Check out Brisk silver plugs, they work great for me.

If you are stock cammed like me, you gotta spray to play!
