Nitrous on 3.9 100 shot, will it be ok

Ive seen alot of people with GT say they run 100 shot of nitrous for many years with no problems. Just wondering if 100 shot would be safe on 3.9 I bought the Nitrous Express kit and got the digital window timer to be extra safe so no running in to low or way to high rpms. every other nitrous install ive done has been on built motors so no worries just curious about doing on stock internals on v6. Also i am using a Dry kit didnt want to mess with the wet setup. Had a turbo setup in mind but would rather do motor swap before put 3 grand in a v6, for 3 grand i could have a hell of motor swap lol

Current Mods: just bought car few months back so list not to large yet lol
STD Lowering springs
Slotted rottors
H-pipe true duals
cold air intake
b&m ratchet shifter (absolutely coolest thing for a auto)
SVT programmer
MSD coil
Smoked headlights
Tinted Tail lights
Sequential tail lights

100 shot should be fine as long as your engine isn't a high milage one. To be safe I'd run a little less.

I very much doubt the stock fuel system is capable of adding the necessary fuel to maintain the AF ratio from a 100 shot.

Typically dry systems are good for a 25-50 shot. Wet systems are good for up to 200 and anything more than that needs direct port.

A dry 100 shot will result in your engine being toast. I wouldn't even chance it with a 50 shot.

Do it once, do it right. If you want to spray a big shot, go with a wet kit.

You can up the fuel pressure with the regulator... But that doesn't mean your injectors and pump will be able to supply that fuel.

I have seen over 100 shot on a v6 before but that was a wet kit. I haven't seen many people run a dry kit on a v6. I would get a dyno tune and run a 50-75 shot. That's too high of mileage to run anymore IMO.

Wet kits do not interfere with injectors, it's completely pump dependent. 100 shot will be perfectly fine with a good tune on the car.. A friend of mine runs a 125 shot on his HCI V6 on a stock bottom end without problems.

After looking into it more I will more then likely go with the wet kit. What's best way tune for it, do I have to have dyno tune or will hand held tuner work

My tuner, Luis, can set you up with a great nitrous tune through data logging and email. Same way he tuned my built car.

Yes he can just send you tunes to download to the handheld since you already have one.
