How does an 89 5.0 handle spray?

So my friend has an 89 with 89 k miles on does the stock block handle a small spray like 50? 75? 100?

These motors typically speaking do fine. However it all depends on how worn his motor is. If the car gets beat on regularly then I would say the smaller the better. If it is relatively taken care of, the 100 shot shouldn't be an issue. I would highly recommend a wet kit, that way you have the extra fuel you need and are less likely to cause a lean situation and grenade the motor.

Do a wet kit as said before but with an adjustable fuel regulator just in case. With le nitrous, you can never have too much fuel for that just in case...

At this get together I go to ALOT, there's a 90 gt that has nothing but a regulator, 24 lb injectors and maf and a 150 wet shot. Spanks the **** out of every gt40 swapped 5.0 that comes along.

Just be sure to back the timing off a few degrees

I chug syrup for money...
