Question about running nitrous

I've got a zex black out wet kit on my car. Bama says I can only run a 100 shot using there tune. But I'm wanting to run a 150-175 shot. Can I run a 150 shot any way just using the 100 shot tune and changing to a colder plug. Or do I need to do something differnt to run any bigger than a recommended 100 shot. I just fell that a 100 shot is kind of small

No, at that point you absolutely need to get a dyno tune. Hell I would get a dyno tune if you were just running a 50 shot. The reason nitrous has a bad name is because people don't set it up correctly AND they don't tune it right. The only way to have a safe nitrous set up is with a proper tune.

I wouldn't go higher than a 100 shot on the stock engine regardless

125-150 will be fine. Its 200 where you will blow something. 150 is where i would max it out on stock internals.

So what if I do a data log tune with a 100 shot. I've set it up all right with all the proper stuff like heater window switch purge etc. will a data log tune from bama be safe

Think of it this way... Would you rather spend a little extra for a good and reliable tune, or a lot extra for a new motor? The cost of a $6k motor is honestly not worth the risk of skipping out on a $5-600 tune.

Our tune will be perfectly save for a 75-100 Shot. However, if you'd like to run a larger shot I'd definitely recommend taking your car to be Dyno tuned! Anything after a 100 shot the tuner is definitely going to want the car in front of them.

If you'd like us to datalog with you for your current tune, we can definitely do that also! Just hit up the Bama team and they'll help you out. Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!
