Ide run stock with a 75 shot. I doubt there would be any issues at all.

No prob. Keep in mind that the stock plugs are already one colder than what they normally put in cars.

My V6 Stang was the same way.. didn't bother to change the plugs for the 75 or the 100 shot... just gapped them down a bit.

Why did you gap them down? And how much?

To prevent spark blow out... Want to say we set them in the .032 range.

Hey guys, Ive been lurking this thread for quite some time now, #s are impressive congrats to all on the list. Looks like nitrous shows really good results especially for the $ compared to TT .
When it comes to FI Im a noob, so please forgive me if these questions are noob like. lol

1. Is it 100% accurate that installing nitrous voids your warranty?
2. I have friend that are telling me not to do it because I will blow the engine or that the transmission can not handle it, what are your thoughts???

Thanks

Most dealers will probably be reluctant to do warranty work on the DRIVETRAIN if you are running nitrous or have turbos/SC. Some will take a look at it and if they think it wasn't caused by the extra power or poor programming they'll fix it. As for blowing the engine, just have someone reliable install the kit and get a tune. Don't over do the shot and you should be fine. The auto transmission seem to be holding up (ROD1 is running a 125 shot), but I don't think any of the manual guys have done a big shot, yet.

I am running a 46n and a 26f. Should be close to 100hp shot. Mines a Manuel tyranny, and seems to be handling it fine. Running the NGK7 plugs gapped to .033. Seems to be a perfect combo. Can't find a dyno here in Salt Lake. Everyone I talk to, says "i had a buddy who used to..." ,but nothing solid. Will post install pics as soon as I get up tomorrow, as I'm on the the graveyards.

Anyone know a dyno shop in the Utah? If so, maybe me and one of my 4 wives can swing into there shop..... I'm just joshin... I only got three.

These cars love the air, don't they. You should calculate your VE, I think it should be the highest of any of the FI cars.

Shoot me the TQ, too.

Got home from work, and cable was there( 3 days total from ordering tunes ) uploaded street tune, drove around for about 10 minutes, and let her have it. Didn't feel a ton more power, but enough to notice, but acceleration was a lot smoother, and power seemed to be all the way through the gear. Nice! Will datalog a couple tomorrow, then upload the nitrous tune, and see what she has. So far.... I likey!

I'll have to dig up the formula and post it. The easiest thing is to have Vince calculate it. He'll have all the information needed in his logs. I'm guessing you're over 160% though.


Nice torgue number!
