Anyone run nitrous on their Gen5

I am seeing knock with the stock tune and pump gas, so wondering how a 100 wet shot would do on a gen5?

Guess it would really need a good tune to be safe even with a 100.

The timing in the stock programming appears to be really aggressive. Fix that and you should be fine.

Check with CamaroGirl5, blackflag, she runs a 100 shot. The car runs mid 11s on the funny fumes.

You should pull at least 2 degrees of timing for every 50 hp of nitrous and go from there. I am planning on running the lingenfelter timing controller, but there are others out there. Its either that or reflash ecm every time you race.

I'm not a big fan of the MSD timing twister or the lingenfelter box. Had some issues on my 98 with one. I'd rather just pull timing in the tune.

Just saying that since the stock timing is so high and it gets KR and pulls some, that one would have to pull more than the standard 4 degrees on the stock tune-up. Probably 6-7 degrees to keep away from detonation and having the motor pull even more timing.

Race gas will help as well. There is a gas station here in BG that sells 104 octane at the pump if u need to gas up before heading to Beech Bend

True. The way my custom tune is now, with knock sensors at stock settings I am getting zero KR at WOT.

Nice! Sounds like a real good tune up. I made a couple hundred passes in my ls1 on the spray before I had any problems. Was grudge racing one night and reached back and turned the bottle on after my burnout but didnt check the pressure. Well it was 1300 Ran good for 30-40 feet before a gnarly backfire and got a rod.

Went through the entire car and building the motor this week. Taking the nitrous out for a while so I'm not tempted lol

Oh wow that is a bummer to hear!
That is the thing I fear about Nitrous, with my luck it is bound to happen lol
