On the fence Nos setup or Cam install

I recently had my car tuned and 3.91 gears installed. 393RWHP 388RWTQ with just high flow mid pipes and fastlane cold air intake. It's like a drug I want more
My question is if spending same amount which would be the better route to go Nos outlet plate system or nice Cam setup I know I have to swap the mid pipes for Longtubes to get best results but just don't want to go down wrong road and regret later.

Think of it this way. How often are you going to use the nitrous? Which would you like more, a few seconds of spray or an infinite time with the power the cam and longtubes offer? I say don't waste it on the nitrous. Get LT's and a cam.

I absolutely agree. A cam is usable more often, you don't have to refill the cam, and the cam won't backfire and blow your intake manifold off. Plus you will get the awesome old school sound and rock n roll of a cam.

Feel free to call, email, or PM us anytime!

@Black10 you guys at lethal racing are the ones making me change my mind I was all set on a Nos outlet plate system 100shot. Then I see again and again Night fury cams making 500-490RWHP that's just awesome.

Long tubes and a cam will be a 100 shot that's there all the time.

I'd go with a lethal cam if it was up to me. Just my.2

Nitrous is nice, but on a street driven car, it will rarely be used, so it just sits there collecting dust and is a waste of money. GET A CAM!!!!!!!!!! You will not regret it.
