    Nope, still on the stock 10. Waiting for it to blow up.....I've already launched on a 100 shot a few times without any problems. Automatics tend to be much easier on the rear...

    I'm going to a pretty hookin' track Dec. 17th. Gonna try launching on a 150 shot and see if I blow the rear. Of course, I'll be trailering the car there.... :p

    Wtf are you talking about? The cats have nothing to do with how big of a shot the bottom end of the motor is going to take. If you do not do some serious fuel modifications to that car (e.g. inline fuel pump, larger in tank fuel pump, injectors) you WILL burn up your pistons. The LS1 is a great deal stronger motor than the LT1 has ever been, stock for stock, and even on an LS1 150 shot on a stock bottom end is pushing it..... Just my $0.02, do what you will.

    Although cats do not have anything to do with it.

    Tell me WHY I would have to use an intank pump AND an inline pump, when my fuel system with just the intank pump will support around 600rwhp? And why upgrade the injectors when running a wet shot?

    and FYI the LS1 doesn't have forged internals either, so I don't see how it's a "great deal" stronger than the LT1 has ever been.

    Tell you what...when I go to my track rental Dec. 17th, I'll get a video of a pass on a 150 shot and post it just for you, ok? :wavey:

    colder spark plugs and timing is some other stuff to consider when using a nitrous system, oh and the air/fuel ratio.

    Believe it or not these lt1 and ls1's can run 175 shots and all you really have to do is change to tr6 or colder plugs. any more then that and you really should do a custom tune though.
