Nitrous questions

Postby ponyxpress [OP] » Jan 08 2011, 11:26pm

I have a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 4.8 only mods will be a Flowmaster muffler (done) a CAI and a handheld tuner. So I am looking to find out I have had Nitrous I virtually evey Vechicle I have ever owned. The last being my 2000 mustang gt and that I pushed a 150 shot on it. How much of a shot can these engines or trucks in general handle? I am not sure if they are forged internals at all I am thinking f putting a 125 shot on it. and hopin that can get me into the 13's in the 1/4 it a regualr cab shortbed. let me know what yo all think I defiantly apreciate it thanks

I'd suggest a 2 stage or a progressive controller, It'll take a 150 shot that way. Don't hit it below 3000 rpm. A 75 horse hit at 3000 is known safe if you're not lean.
The stock crank is nodular iron, stock rods are powdered metal, stock pistons are cast.
