Default 175 Wet Shot?

Im going to change over to a wet system and was wondering with a good tune timing for safety and good a/f would i be able to run a 175 shot. So far ive been spraying a 125 shot dry and gone through a few bottles to say the least, lol. Car has responded well but thats just about at the limits of what a dry system can do for me for stock fuel injectors and pump. Not sure if its worth going to a wet shot for 25hp more but some say a 125 shot dry is about 90-100 to the wheels and a 150 shot wet could be anywere from 140-160 at the wheels depending on mods so its probably more difference then just 25hp more but id like to go to 175 shot. What do you guys think ?

if you have good oil pressure and dont smoke go for it get it tuned for it i run a 175 on mine and i put down like 530ish too the rear tire and it is fast as heck for a 500 hp car but make sure the tune is right or youll be rebuilding it lol

ya for sure, ill be having him pull timing accordingly and make sure my a/f is 11.5-11.8. Im going to start off at 75 shot and work my way up like i just started using nitrous, it will run rich but it will let me know i have enough fuel as i go up little by little till i get to 175 and at that point if the tune is right i should know wether or not it will be ok to run it.

Are you running a wideband sensor to keep up with your A/F ratio?

Where do you have it mounted? i was thinking about putting mine in the y-pipe, just don't know if that would be too far away from the motor...

I have it on the ypipe. I didnt know if i should put it right behind the header or just put it on the y since both sides meet up and i might get a more accurate reading. Either way im glad i did when i first put it on thinking i have a good tune and im just doing this to be safe come to find out im running 14-15.0 a/f on 75 shot dry, lol. I sent it out right away and got it re tuned for 125 shot dry and came out good. Im running a bit rich 11.5-11.8 a/f on nitrous but as long as its not low 11's or 10's im ok with that.

youll have fun when time comes for sure, it puts a smile on my face everytime i use nitrous. Hopefully i can get the 150 wet shot dialed in and then maybe move on to the 175 shot.

Sorry to hi jack but I have quick question. For those that run spray on daily drivers, do y'all run around with timing retarded all the time? I had a friend that sprayed a 150 shot but never did anything with timing.

Ive pulled timing but the timing on my car is only pulled when the nitrous is on. I have a black box hooked up to the IAT and when i flip the switch on to the nitrous it switches over to nitrous tune. I would not recommend driving around using a 150 shot with no timing pulled. I even pulled timing on a 50 shot, lol. I will be going to 150 wet and my tuner will pull more timing and adjust fuel till i decide its ok to go to 175. If i do 175 i will have to buy the booster for the fuel pump, add's a couple of volts to the fuel pump and then hope the tune is good. Ive delayed it a bit going to a wet system because 125 shot dry hits hard and impressive when you have good bottle pressure. So i know ill for sure be happy with 150 wet shot.

Always pull 2 degrees for every 50 shot of spray and then start adding degrees if the car is liking it and the plugs look good

If switching to a wet system you will still need to upgrade the fuel pump but you will not need to upgrade the injectors.
