NOS Sneaky Pete

I was looking at one of those sneaky pete kits offered by NOS, and was wondering how much bhp they can handle?

I'm gonna be brutally honest. The Sneaky Pete is a waste of money. It claims to knock off a tenth of you 1/4 mile times. If you were going to build a 10 second truck, the Sneaky Pete would be good to add that extra edge. But if you are just looking for the 25 more horses a sneaky pet offers, get a reprogrammer. They will add the horsepower permanently and more efficiently.

I was talking to people at an automotive center, and they say that the sneaky pete only works on carbeurated, and I would need a $700-$900 system in order for it to work on my EFI. I was looking at programmers, but my truck is too old for anything I've seen so far

Your in Edmonton.. I believe you can move to a newer year engine.. for 700-900$, I'd do a v8 swap, pushrod 302. You'll have more then enough ponies then.

with the ageof your truck and motor and the miles on it, NOS is the last thin I would put into it. your recent parts you had to replace should prove my point.

I know nitrous is a nice flashy add on to brag about, but I'd put that money into replacing parts that you need to have a reliable rig instead of something that going to blow your motor up.

I wouldn't have problem running a 50 shot or so. Get a real kit with a fuel solenoid.

I agree with Andy. I would not put nitrous on your 15 year old motor, its not worth the risk to the old internals. I would do like D said and just put a 302 in your truck.

I wanted it to sell so I'd catch the attention of some kid that would be like "whoa! it has nitrous, that must raise the value another $1000" I know a few people like that, too bad none of them are looking at buying trucks

Oh I know. My uncle just had a NOS Sniper put into his car and his adjuster saw it when he came to check the damage done to the car. I guess his insurance went through the roof after that.

Where do insurance companies actually check up on their customers? That sucks!
