Nitrous Guys check in - NOS install on LS2

I am currently in the process of installing the N.O.S. 05177 dry kit on my buddy’s C6 auto and on my 05 GTO auto. Both the cars share the LS2 and I was wondering has anybody out there tried this kit or a similar dry kit on there LS2 cars? If so, I've heard a lot about the toque management on these car and was wondering if this will give me any type of problems? Both cars will be running low jets no greater than 75 hp. I am very familiar with the kit and have done several installs on c5's and late model f-bodies and never ran into a problem; I am hoping this to be the same. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I believe the 517X series dry kits rely on using nitrous to spike the fuel pressure regulator into delivering more fuel, since the regulator is in the fuel sender assembly in the tank, how do you plan on doing this?

I don't know what you are referring to. The set up on the ls2 is no different than the ls1 when it comes to this kit. Also Im talking about the NOS 05177 kit not the 517x kit. I'm almost complete on a new c6 and there is no difference from my c5 ls1. Kit cost $570 out the door not including the heater.

So let me understand this, you're not adding fuel at all. I understand its a dry kit but shouldn't you add some fuel?

Yeah thats what I'm trying to understand, every 517X series Kit I've seen had a ,provision to spike the fuel pressure regulator, on a returnless car thats damn near impossible.

With a dry kit the Nitrous is injected into the intake before it hits the MAF sensor and the computer adds the extra fuel through the fuel injection system. Of course, you cant run a very large shot with a dry system because the stock FI system can only add so much fuel. I've heard of people running as high as a 150 dry shot on an LS1, but personally I wouldn't run more than 75 or 100 dry.
