Nitrous Help Please!

So, I just recently installed a nitrous kit I picked up. Before I start spraying, I have 50,75,100,125, and 150 jets for fuel and nitrous side. I don't wanna go big yet because I have a tune from a dyno shop and they added timing. I have CAI, LT headers and cat back, the basics.. SO to the questions. 1. what could I safely spray while having timing added 2. what plugs should I put in for a 50, 75 etc. 3. Since it'll be awhile before I go heads and cam should I just buy a hand held programer or hp tuners? The amateur that tuned my car didn't take off the govenor or tune the tranny and he won't get back with me... Any help is great! Thankyou - Kody (it's a l99 car by the way.. yes i bought an auto haha)

Get with a professional tuner that knows what they are doing before you spray it. If not your going to be very sorry you didn't.

Just saying. educate yourself before you spray and go to a quality shop if you want a turn key system. You pull about 2 degrees for every 50 hp shot never add timing. Do u have a window switch? Colder plugs installed? Non projected plugs? Afr meter ? Factory or after market cats? List goes on.

I appreciate all the help! I've been doing alot of research that's why I haven't sprayed yet! I know I need to pull timing but I thought It was 2 degrees for every 25 shot? And no, no window switch I have I have a arm switch and a little hand held remote for the fire. I'm not sure what plugs I'll need yet and I have a catless exhaust. So everyone says tune first? Don't just get a hand held to pull timing?

So for the time being I'd be alright to spray a 50 shot with colder plugs and 91 octane? Because I'm in Oklahoma and theres no 93 octane around.

if you were running stock tune with stock timing, then you would be fine... but guessing your running more than stock timing with your tune...

with 91 i wouldnt , i had the plugs in 2 step colder plugs and i put a jet on the fuel side up a lil higher then it should have been and had 93 oc (4 or so gallons) and 110 oc about a gallon and a half mixed. it was a bit risky , but i took that chance. 9/10 it would be ok but it only takes 1 time. and if it happens just hope it blowes the air filter off and not the manifold and hood. lol. how much timing u running atm n/a
