How long will my stock 120k mile 2.8 last on a 100hp wet shot of laughing gas?

The thing is that no one here really knows. How good it is now? How is its compression? How it was cared? I bought my yellow one with 117K miles and now has near 124K. I have used 3-4 bottles with a 75HP shot. Car runs great. Soon I'll jump to the 100Hp shot. I don't expect too much difference. But of course I have a spare engine and this is not my daily driver

This is not my daily driver either. I just want an excuss to do and engine swap and a buddy of mine has a kit with half a bottle. We were thinking about doing a monster garage style quicky install and taking it to Farmington this Friday.

In that case, go for it Joe!! And don't forget forget to spin it up into the red.

Seriously, though, is this one of the new style systems that that gradually feeds in the nitrous so you do not shock the system, or is it one of the ald fasion all or nothing? If it's just an all or nothing type system, it will likely turn that motor into a boat anchor in a hurry.

Has anyone acutally determined what size jet is how much HP on a fiero yet. I remember when I was asking about it people were telling me like a .030 was a 50 hp shot and risky, but i have been using a .040 jet dry and have used close to a dozen bottles and compression is the same as it was when i started, runs great and doesnt smoke at all with just under 100k on it I got a .046 jet I have been thinking of trying but im kind of scared of that one lol

If you do it, don't use the half bottle, fill it up first. Also, switch to a colder spark plug. If its a dry kit, cut out a bit of timing as well.

Other than risking it puddling up in the intake, you should be fine for 1 bottle.

One 10lb bottle with the 100shot jetting will only last for about a min and a half of full pressure spray...

I agree on filing the bottle first to get full preasure. And if that engine was in normal condition I bet you will changing a lot of bottles before the engine
