Welcome to the forum
Nitrous is basically Oxygen in a compressed form.
Air we breath is 21% oxygen
NOS is 33% oxygen
Oxygen is what combines with "fuel" to allow it to burn rapidly which creates the pressure that pushes pistons down with force
NOS gives an engine more power for the same reason a turbo or super charger does, if you can put more oxygen into a cylinder you can add more fuel.
A turbo or super charger increases the air pressure in the intake so when intake valve opens more oxygen can get into a cylinder.
NOS increases the % of oxygen in the cylinder.
So the more oxygen you can put thru an engine the more fuel you can use, so the more power you get.
That's why a 5 Liter engine has more power than a 2 Liter engine, it can use more oxygen every 2 RPM(4-stroke engine), so can burn more fuel and get more power
35 shot is pretty weak so I don't see a problem, or a benefit, lol.
An engine can break at anytime, if there is a current flaw it may run fine that way for 500k miles, if you add any extra stress it could fail, so roll of the dice for sure.
The biggest issue when you add more oxygen is creating a Lean condition in the cylinders, not breaking a rod or piston from too much power.
Lean just eats up cylinders pretty darn quick, pistons melt and valves burn.
So have a firm grasp on air/fuel mix when adding more oxygen
