Finally running nitrous! I'm doing 100 shot without tune. Is 200 too much with stock internals and a tune?

I couldn't agree more with this statement. Nitrous is an easy way to get power but will kill the engine if your using a 200 shot.

He's running a 100 shot without a tune, that's plenty to kill it on its own. Going to a 200 untuned will likely ventilate the block on the first hit.

OP you should order that replacement engine now. Yours isn't long for this world.

Lol, why do you guys have to be dick heads about it though? Just asked a simple question. No need to get all stupid about it

No dick headery intended pal. I just asked why you even bothered to ask the question. If buying a new motor is no big deal. With that mindset it sounds like you should have bought the 5.0 instead.

I was being sarcastic for the fact that the guy above had said rip engine with no insight and just stating an opinion

Well, it shouldnt take much forethought that adding 100+ horsepower to an engine will require at least some re calibration ...

That being said, as far as a 200 shot goes, lets do some ricer math here. Assuming your car makes a flat 300 whp, the 200 shot would put you in the ~500 whp ball park, which shouldnt be hard for the stock motor. Horsepower isnt what breaks things though, its torque, so depending on how you have the shot set up will be the determining factor. A kit is only as good as the safety features and electronics running it.

Thank you for the help and giving me a better understanding of things. I have a wet nitrous kit from zex and I'm going to get it professionally installed so if I end up going for 200, the safety features and electronics work good

Get a window switch installed. The Zex NMU while okay, will read you at WOT very low in the rpm band and fire off. It happened on my 2006 - was lining up moving into the beams and brought the rpm up to 2,000 and the NMU decided that was WOT and fired off. Get a window switch and set your opening window appropriately (not sure what that is for the 3.7, on the 4.0 I had it set to open at 2,700 rpm.

Firing off too low in the rpm band is what also breaks the engine.

#1 mistake is running a 200 shot through a single nozzle. Especially a crap ZEX kit.
Also having the nitrous come in at anything under 3,000 rpms on a stock motor is also dumb.

Good luck

you need to pull 2 degrees of timing for every 50hp added so about 4 degrees back... i ran a 100shot all day with an mpt nitrous tune... AFR's were in the 11-11.5 range when spaying. i still have that nitrous outlet plate if you wanna step your game up...

I agree. 150 shot max and I would go ahead and have it tuned for it. Keep in mind, N2O makes crazy torque, so make sure your drive train is up to par. I've used N2O on previous Mustangs for years. It is a very reliable power adder if done right. Good luck.

I appreciate the help and comments of those who didn't want to be smart asses and talk smack of the back. I'll be sure to run a tune on 100 shot

I have to be honest here. When you guys talk Nitrous and mention things like single nozzle, window switch, wet, dry, spicey, mild BBQ, makes me realize. I don't know crap about Nitrous. Ba ha ha ha

I was always told Nitrous was the quickest way to kill an engine. After listening to Rap about it, I'm not so sure Nitrous will damage an engine when done right? I need to learn more about Nitrous.
