Nitrous on a 2001 V6?

Hello so I have a 2001 v6 with a CAI, true dual straight pipes with Cats and a good tune up other than that the motor is stock, I want to install a 75 shot wet system, how safe is this?
My friend who is an experienced mechanic has done this to several mustangs and says it will be fine and may even be able to take 100 shot. Is my motor ready to handle 75 shot or do I need to make some mods to it first? And if is ready can it still handle 100 shot if used rarely as well?Any input is very appreciated thank you👍

Just wondering, if your friend is an experienced mechanic who has done this several times, what's keeping you from taking his word on it?

Just wanted to get some other opinions to block my doubts, I love my car and don't want to blow the motor obviously, reassurance i guess. haha

Everyone wants to use nitrous now. When 60% of the ones that want to have no business messing with it.
What I's your plan for a tune?

Then why does he say "may" be able to take a 100 shot.
Obviously he has no clue.

1. You need to loose your cats for a 100 shot.
2. Better have a good set of tires 3. make sure he knows how to tune
Also you will need to change your plugs

Like Rapinator said. If he said it "may" be able to take a 100 shot. That's a red flag that he doesn't really know.

He may be an experienced mechanic, but nitrous isn't something most standard mechanics deal with.

Almost any car in existence can take a 100 fairly easily as long as it is tuned and set up right.

Im sorry I should have rephrased that by "may" he wanted to see how the fuel pressure will be and based on that seeing if I need to make any changes to run 100 safely, and I already did get better tires and changed out spark plugs and wires.
