Default 175 or 200 shot safe or not?

I have my bottle and my selonoid in my spare tire compartment. the line is runnin from there sittin on top of my air filter, shootin into the throttle body. I've been runnin a 150 shot,(dry). The car is holdin up fine,(motorwise). Would it hurt to try a 200 shot? or 175 to be on the safe side. I have the racetronix fuel pump. and how often should you change the plugs, when shootin this thing

I'd say don't go over a 100-125 shot dry. For 150 and up, go wet.

Inspect and change plugs based off indicators of nearly half life, which is determined by each unique setup and use. Doesnt sound like it, but the jump from 150 to 200 is a large one. Killed more cars then you'd think. Get the tuning right, not on a dyno either unless it loads the car correctly.

Why is this? I am going 200+ with dry in multi stage. Obviously Iam2 must have upgraded injectors to survive with an allready 150hp shot, so the limit now is based on the tune, like Cat has said. When your ready for some spray on that Z06, wet or dry, give me a yell, and we'll get you easly into the low 11's or higher 10's.
