Nitrous

Thought I would throw this out as a FYI. For you that are Nitrous gunkies, if you blow your motor up with nitrous and bring the vehicle in to the dealer to have warranty work done. I know none of you would do that becuase that would be wrong.....

BUt just to let you know that if Nitrous is ran through the motor an a oil sample is taken they can test for Nitrous residue in the motor.

I've seen intakes and hoods blown off Camaro's for folks that sprayed more than a 75 hp bump on stock LS1's. Not a pretty picture.

The idealogy is a 50 to 75 hp bump is relatively safe, as long as you have Wide Open Throttle (WOT) sensor and properly set Window Switch.

me, with two boys, college educations to still pay for, I can't afford an expensive repair / replacement.

LS1s absolutely love nitrous, with a half decent tune, you can spray a 150 all day and not have any problems if used properly. Stay away from RL though, they do love to bend pushrods.

go with an RPM activated NX dry kit, with a WOT switch, and RPM cutoff so you dont spray revlimiter ( = *pop*) . then have someone tune it to be absolutely safe.

keep in mind Dry kits require more tuning the wet kits, but are more effective in most cases.
