Question

Hey all, I am curious, my stock 305, how much of a shot nitrous can it take? I really have no idea, the only guy I know with nitrous is my buddy with his sunfire and he has a 65hp shot with barely any mods. I want to be able to handle about a 120-140hp shot. I also am concerned about the tranny being able to take the torque, or the rear end.

you should be concerned about the bottom end of your engine, i would venture to think your pushing it too far with a 125shot.

Question

Well how bout a 100 shot? What could I do to beefen up the engine in order to handle it, or are you talking about the block itself?

ud be pretty much ok w/ a 125 shot...just beef up your fuel system and make sure it doesnt lean out (low fuel press. cut off switch)

well something like that would never happen with the auto monitor on the venom nitrous kit, which is the one I was looking at, its the safest because its constantly monitoring the mixtures, it auto cuts off if anything goes wrong.

hoooooooooold up...is this a dry system? as in theres just a nitrous jet and the computer adds the fuel? forget that...get a wet system. MUCH safer.

yeah i do believe the venom is a dry system i'll have to double check, do u have a reccomendation for a good wet system. Why would it be safer?

a wet system is all self contained. it doesn't rely on the car's computer to do anything different. just another way of idiot proofing things.

nah I dont think of myself as being that stupid, I'll just research it before I go out and do it, I'm gonna stick with the dry system, the venom looks like a key choice.

why not just not run the nitrous and have a long living engine. maybe change the cam out to a bigger one, or port the heads, or change them entirly. that would make some HP that you would have all the time, you car would sound cooler and you wouldnt have to worry about having to build a new bottom end.
