Nitrous Q's

I would only run a 50 or 75 shot on my 4.0 SOHC with the proper timing curve recalibration and I would run a wet setup, but my main concerns are where I should put the bottle and how long should I run each shot? I want to either put the bottle in between my jump seats or in the bed, how dangerous is the bottle alone? And do wide open throttle switches shut off after a prolonged amount of time or just until I let off? How long is too long to run a shot? And I have an automatic tranny, any real concerns there?

Since were on the topic, I still got a sneaky pete dry kit with jets for 50hp, would this be o.k to run with the 4.0 sohc's fuel system. I wouldnt use it much, but I got the kit for 50$ and it's been laying in the garage for about 6months.

the NOS sneaky pete kit would be basically good for nothing. its a VERY small bottle, and the pressure drop would be so immediate, that youd lose power almost as soon as you gained it, not to mention the hassle of using the system for 1 run then having to refill.

Yeah I got 2 1lb bottles according, to holley, I can run 50hp for 15 sec's, with the 2 bottles I could run 30 secs, I dont go to the track to much but if the need arises it would be nice to have.

Im down to try it on my truck, right now Ive had nothing but cooling problems and it only has 26k miles on it so lets see if I can lemon law it before 36k is up! How can I buy it from you? There is a place right down the street from me that fills NOS bottles so a couple 1 lb bottles should be easy enough to mount and hide. Does anyone make a 2-5 lb bottle? Do you think it would be accurately 50 horses cause I would just love to go out and have a one time shot to blow away a v8 or take it to the track and see what I can do with it. theres no harm in running out of nitrous is there?

also with a small shot like that, is ignition timing an issue cause I do have an Xcalibrator 2 but I am running a stock tune right now to save on gas, should I tune it for 87 and run 91 to get the extra fuel but not so advanced timing?

Stock tunes are generally conservative enough except for on the top end. (high rpms)

You can get away with this however if you do three things. Run an excessive octane fuel, one range colder plugs, and don't shoot below 2500 rpms.

Fuel, mix a 25% - 100 octane -to- a 75% highest octane you can buy at your local station. (This is your insurance)
