Glad to see the ss4000 and trans are holding up since that's how I'll be running as well. I'd launch out of 1st, but my 10 bolt would be toast lol. I've heard it's better to have it shut off a few hundred rpms before each shift and reactivate after the shift so I plan to do the same. You run an LNC2000 as well?
I sprayed 150 out of the hole with my home-built 8.8. I would probably run a progressive controller with a 10 bolt with a 150 shot or just run smaller shots and see how the car likes it.

You should be fine with a 100 shot and have it turn on once you're already moving. I have my window switch set at 3900-6300. Logging runs showed me that my car starts moving with a launch at 3800. The nitrous hits when I'm going about 2-3 mph.

Here's 100 launch:

My car shifts at 6500 and I had the window switch shutting off at 6300 before shifts, but that left to much time in between the shut off and shift (about one second on the 2-3 shift according to hp tuners log), so i'll be upping it to 6400 next time.

First pass ever with 100 shot:

Yes, I run the lnc2000. With 27* total timing, I was pulling 4* with 100 and 7* on 150 (to be safe, first time using it). Running a mix of 93 and 110 leaded in the main tank.

Here's my setup:

Yea i have no chance spraying 150 out of the hole with a 10 bolt. Instead of doing the progressive I'm thinking I'll just spray in 2nd with the window switch gear lock out .. that should work fine I'd think? I don't even know if the 10 bolt could handle ramping in out of 1st. Great videos and info for timing and shift points! Your car is running real good! How did you go about building the 8.8? Was it a lot cheaper than a 12 bolt?

Here's my 8.8 build:

It was about $1600 installed including all of the adjustable suspension items.

Edit: I see no issues spraying from 2nd on

Spraying 100+ you really want a bottle bigger than 10Lbs. I'm using a 20Lb heated bottle. I'm spraying 175 using a NOS progressive controller, 1st stage is port injected, the second stage is spraying into the manifold from both ends.
