Nitrous vs 2v

So as y'all know I'm spraying my 2v I've got cold air intake, Tb/p, spacer, under drive pulley's, tune, off road x-pipe, slp loudmouths I have stock internal stock rods and pistons, I'm getting colder plugs but don't know which ones, getting 24 pound injectors and hopefully a 310 LPH fuel pump soon. My question is what makes nitrous so dangerous i know I can blow my intake manifold but how could I avoid that from happening and from damaging my internals.? 25 shot 50 shot? I was think 75 but ik I don't wanna go more than that I'm just looking for a little more power

You can run 75 shot all day long
100 is max for stock short block

Just get the colder plugs / good fuel system / good tune to go along with your kit

How do you prevent nitrous backfiring?

You prevent nitrous from backfiring by using a good kit, having a good tune and not being an idiot.

Set up and tuned right you will be able to handle a 125-150 shot. The tune is very key to nitrous.

I run a 125 shoot on a 153000 mile stock bottom end for about 2 years now with the nitrous express plate kit . you want to get a window switch it helps ! Spraying the motor under 3k really hurts the bottom end , an a good dyno tune you will be good

If you do a nitrous shot at the plenum it hits harder .. Without putting bigger jets.

So I was told

Best setup you can do is a fogger system. I don't like nitrous myself, never did. I want that power on tap all the time or not at all. For a dedicated drag car fine, not for a street car or weekend warrior. Just MO though.

That is exactly how I always felt but recently I've given in.

Let's face it nitrous is the easy way out for gains lol, I think if you ONLY use nitrous when you really need it.. It won't be bad

Lol when you hit 3rd gear and he's starting to walk you.. Hit that button haha

Except Nitrous is designed to spray at certain rpms at WOT, that Fast and furious nitrous button is more show than reality.

You can put it on a button instead of a throttle switch but it has to be pushed down the while time

Most setups I see on drag cars are just tied to the throttle. When activated it sprays at WOT.

You can have the WOT switch , but you can have a on / off switch for daily driving , and for racing.

Generally with the wot switch you just feather it coming out of the hole in 1st, floor it in 2nd and keep on flooring it/powershifting till you let off. That activates the N2O after you get higher up in the RPM range and also you don't have to think about it. With the auto you just come off the brake/footbrake and go right to WOT.

A window switch allows you to control what rpm you want to spray at like mine is set up to hit at 3k and stops at 5700 just in case you miss a gear .
Wot switch is also smart because you don't want to spray nitrous at 3/4 throttle by mistake you're engine will not last long
