Default another nitrous question

i talked to my tuner and they said that the fuel pump i have will be okay to run a 200 shot. right now my rev limiter is set to 7,000 rpms, i have arp "cracked rod" bolts but besides that the bottom end is completely stock with 50k on it. is that safe to rev it to that rpm? while spraying or not spraying?

Depends on what you define safe as.

It should last awhile, will it go 100,000 miles like an OEM shortblock, probably not. The reliability you require is what you need to figure out. I would not spin a daily driver to 7k spraying.

I would not go over 6600 personally. But Im a nitrous junkie not a engine builder. I have tore up my fair share of part however, walked a little bit because of it.

Spinning to 7000 or higher is not required....you cam will dictate your RPM level. Will it spin that high....maybe?.... might even go to 10K but you're just wasting gas (and parts) at that point.
