I don't know of anyone here that has Tim.

If you did, I would limit it to a 30 shot due to the pcm's ability to compensate for the lean condition it will cause.

Really not worth the potential engine damage that can result.

My .02 worth....

Dry shots are better, BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE A DEDICATED FUEL SYSTEM FOR IT.

Dont even try a dry shot on our trucks. You can turn off the a/c to get your 30 hp shot of nitrous. LOL

The largest shot I've run is 150.

Without good sticky tires there is no such thing as traction...it hits hard.

Most of the time I run 125 and if conditions are right I can pull high 1.9's to 2.00 60' times.

A progressive controller will allow me to get those down a little bit next season.

what rpm are you hitting it at? I was hitting it at 4000 in first gear. Even with DR's it was spin city. Next time around, I am going with slicks or some more serious rubber than the nitto 555 xtremes

On street tires i can't hit it until about 3600.

If the tires are really hot and the track is good she wont break loose too bad.

My best run this year was with a borrowed set of 275 17 ET Streets. I jetted for 125 and 18 psi in the rears got me a [email protected]

They hooked up pretty well.But they were too short I think, I was at the top of third gear through the traps.

With those tires I was able to hit the nitrous at 3200 and only got a couple of feet of spin before it hooked.

The 150 is useless on the street tires unless I'm in 2nd gear over 3400.

Watch it hereD500 videos

I'm sure next year will be better...
