i bought the car and it had been sprayed with a 150 shot, ive had the car for a while now and havent sprayed it yet. this is the first car i have sprayed so i wanna try the 75 shot out first. its an automatic ls1 with a 3600 stall, im gonna spray it from like a 35-40 roll, the window switch is set for 3000-5900, is this ok or should i spray later like 3400 or leave it as it is. anything that i should watch/listen for when i do spray it later tonight? thanks

While activating at 3000 plus rpm is important, it is not as important as making sure the engine has the ability to rev. Just make sure it does not lug like being in too high of a gear.

I opened up mine at 1500 and it was ok, but we do have some fuel mods. 3k is always good. Especially with your stall.

another vote on the 3k train. Have fun man, youll be happy you sprayed! :)

well the first time i tried to spray it last night it wouldnt spray, so i got my buddy to take a look at it and he fixed the wiring on the WOT switch, so after that i sprayed it and it felt like a whole new car, obviously, im happy with the result but until i get a new tranny its gonna stay a 75 shot. thanks for the posts
