    should be.. just have to see what air fuel ratio is. try to keep it less than 12.5 for safety reasons.

    Overall I know its risky, but I'm looking for any feedback from any forum member users.
    I've read about lots of S/C pitfalls, none on just Nitrious (yet)..

    I'm about to "Dive In", just got the tank to fill.. It's going to be a 100 Dry Shot with a hand trigger and bottle warmer. I'm only going to use it for the tracks 3-4 times a year. I have 67K miles and a 100K mile warrantee as a "backup"??..

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Hello bro

    Dry shot will be to risky

    I was running my car with NOs. My sitting was. Long tube DT, Y pipe DT, MBRP cat back and K&N CAI.
    My sitting was 60 Nos and 32 fuel. No issue and stromger than SC then I have tuned uni chip with 2 maps. One for non NOs and advance timing and 2nd map for NOs.

    You will need to change plugs. Go for TRD ones that comes for SC. it is colder than the stock and live for long time

    I have no idea of 50, 75 and 100 hop shot. can you go in detail and tell me what are the numbers?



    GOOD LUCK

    well a 5.7 should handle a 100 shot no problem with a wet kit. i agree with the plugs, a/f gauge, and exhaust temp gauge would be nice too.
    just dont leave any signs of install when sending it to the dealer, and maybe clog the injectors or something before hand so you have an excuse on why your pistons are melted.

    Hey, that was a GOOD One!....... I thought this thread died out...
    I have actually decided against it and have also finally accepted the Naturally Aspirated 5.7L as for "what it is"..... and I also can't risk a blown engine...!
    Thanks though for the continued feed back!

    I actually returned the whole kit and bottle to the Mod shop.. but is there a thing as a super safe 50 shot??.. it's never too late I guess and "never say never"... I'll see what my wallet says.. I just want affordable bolt ons and currently have plans in this order:
    1) Custom fabricated CAI ... Its almost done by this week and I removed the Volant CAI.. will post photos soon..

    2) VB Shift Kit by Chirs (spoolin67) ... I have a used really cheap tranny lined up to keep as a spare

    3) OBX Long Tube headers

    The Custom CAI is just about done. The truck is still in the shop. Here is a photo of it installed and uninstalled for painting..
    The long tubing is based on getting the most coldest dense air possible..I'll start a new thread on it once it's up and going..

    Yeah, that injen CAI has a pipe that goes does a 90 degree turn right after the fender hole and the cone filter sits right there. Mine keeps going and going where it goes down and back up to where the cone will sit in front of the lower radiator and right behind the lower bumper. this is the where the coldest most dense air would be.. I'm picking up the truck tomorrow. it was also about $300, hand made..
