Get a custom tune. If you can test and tune near a track that'll be optimal, at 150 shot any tune error will cost you a large sum of money.

Matt@FSP has me dialed in on the 100 level , so I'm golden on that tune aspect. I have an A/F meter and I own the HP Tuners Pro Suite software. I'll do some 330' hits, than some 1/8 mile and some 1,000' runs if all looks good. Than we bring out the big run and go for it.

Any luck on the 150 shot yet? I have a 2013 Cadillac ATS with the 3.6. I have a 2 stage NOS system with a 125 shot. Well last time out only the first stage came on with a 75 shot and still ran a 12.55@110.61mph. Im trying to find out more info and upgrades for this engine so I came over here to see what you guys are up to with the V6 camaros. What compression does your 2012 have? Ive been fighting KR bad in mine. Just curious if you have had any issues with KR in your car?

You're pals with the guy with that tuned 2.0 turbo car? Not to knock you or anything, but that turbo 4 cyl car is bad ass! I'm leaning hard towards picking up a turbo 4 6th gen Camaro and cranking up the boost.

12.55 is pretty respectable on a 75 shot. What do you run without the juice? According to the Caddy website your car weighs 3461 w/o driver? That's about 270 lighter than my 1LT v6 auto... Definitely helps.

Yeah that was John I was racing. We talk a lot. A lot of guys like the 2.0T but its not for me. It was hard enough dropping down to a V6. The V6 still sounds pretty descent. Im just waiting for the ATS-V to come out. That will have a twin turbo 3.6. I never made a completely stock run. I had my trans firmed up and about 8 degrees of timing pulled for the nitrous and ran a 13.9. Johns 2.0T is pretty quick. His best time so far was a 12.6. The ATS is definitely light. They start a 3325lbs and go up from there depending on options. Mine is in the 3400's but never weighed it.

etmx183 ran a 12.298 @ 109.64 on a 100 shot back in April. Hoping to see him do a bigger shot once it cools down. He's got quite a bit of mods done to his car, not just stock with spray.

My plan is for September 28 at Maryland International Raceway to go for the 140 shot. I now have my stand alone fuel cell and regulator ( dedicated for the nitrous system ) and I'll be running Cam2 or C16 in the fuel cell (for the nitrous )from now on. No issues with KR since Matt@FSP took over on my tuning.

Rick, keep in mind Cam2 or C16 will take out your O2 sensors at some point. I went with the unleaded version. Unfortunately its more expensive then the the leaded. Think i paid $70 for 5gal

did you buy colder spark plugs to run a 100 shot or is it stock plugs?

My 3.6 really did not like Iridium plugs with nitrous. I got one colder iridium and still didn't like it. Then I went with the Brisk Racing silver RR14YS which worked well up to 100. After 100 I switched to the colder non projected tip Brisk Racing Silver RR14S. You should def get copper or silver plugs for a nitrous system. I'm trying to find what compression the 2012 LFX has. Mine is 11.3:1 in my 2013 which made changing plugs necessary. Way too much KR on the stock Iridium plugs

Fairly certain the 12+ LFX engine has always been 11.5:1 compression. The 10-11 LLT was 11.3-11.4 depending on where you read it.

Check this out: Everything you ever(or never) wanted to know about the LFX engine!

It's hard to find good info on the internet sometimes. I thought I originally read 11.5:1 but when I was looking up 2012 I read 11.3:1. So I thought maybe I was remembering wrong. Either way they are pretty high for a stock engine. So I run E85 in mine and it helped a lot too
