On stock timing, I wouldn't go more than a 50 shot, maybe 75. However, if you take out some timing you can run 150 shot all day long. Some people have done 175 on the stock block, but that's pushing it a little in my book.

You can go as high as a 100 shot on stock lt1 without having to pull anytiming, but I would recommend atleast getting colder plugs and gapping them accordingly. In order to go up to a 150 shot I would recommend pulling some timing (approx. 6 degrees) and upgrading your fuel pump just to be safe.

I started spraying my stock lt1 with bolt-ons like 3 years ago when it had 100,000 miles on the clock and I havn't had any problems. The car now has 112,000 miles on it and I'm still spraying the **** out of it

Just make sure you get a FPSS window switch and a way to pull timing.

When I get around to a nitrous kit I'm going 150 wet.

I have always been told that you should have TR-6 or equvilent plugs for spray or you risk melting one or more plugs, but check the NOS section on this bord to be shure of that.

You can get away with 100 shot without pulling timing i'm sure, but run the TR-6 plugs gapped at .035 & it wouldn't hurt running a 20/80 (20% race fuel) mix off 105 Unleaded just to be safe with the stock timing, thats what i would do.

NitroDave, they have a nice starter kit for around 360.00, good for up to 150.
