It looks like it. You will tax that LPE pump quickly. No way it'll support a 150. Be careful.

2. Where are you mounting that bottle?

Yep wet shot, 150 is the max I'll go, will definitely depend on the fuel situation. I'm going to mount the bottle in the trunk, I'm deciding whether or not to use the specific mount from Nitrous Outlet or just strapping it to the floor. Hopefully I can get away with some fueling being at 5500ft!

I am looking at spraying a small shot on my Maggie car. I have the 1/2" spacer under my Maggie, the ported tub and at this point the NW102. It looks like you have the same plans. If I understand correctly you can not use a nitrous plate since the hood will have issues closing. How and where do you plan on installing the nitrous port?

I'm going to run my nozzle in the intake tube, single nozzle. You could run dual nozzle for better atomization, but I was told it wasn't necessary.

While I have heard a lot of people are having IAT issues an issue I don't have at all, but I have a plastic intake tube which help with this some. You going to use a plastic or metal intake tube?

Haven't decided yet, just found out that I need to go through and get a different game plan for the motor, but I was leaning towards metal, might need to go with plastic, thanks for the heads up. I'm hoping that this cold Colorado air will keep my blower cold.

Why? What happened? Shouldn't you get an HKE or RHS?

Just want to have the strongest motor I can get and you can't really beat cast iron. Not to mention the ability to keep my stock motor as a backup plan.

How much did that add cost wise?

Did you get the 376?

Not to bad really, it was less than building it from a hollow block. It's the new LSX376 from this year, 6 bolt heads, forged rotating assembly, the works.

I am keeping it a 376 for the stock cubes class.
