    Go with a 50 shot at most, and if you want to be extra safe, get colder plugs.

    wooo hoooo thats all i can say. I put in colder ngk's, B&M fuel presure regulator, retarded the timing 6deg, and ran a 75 shot and pulled a 14.64 at 96.27mph

    R/t 1.007 ( Pro Street tree timing )
    60 2.282
    330 6.291
    1/8 9.506
    mph 76.77
    1000 12.301
    1/4 14.63
    mph 96.27

    i pulled the plugs and it actually ran rich the plugs were black so i think im safe what does every one think

    u can run 75's all the time, but u will wreck ur engine very quickly. I have a friend tho has a d16z6, slightly build running 13.6's with a 75 shot, he has gone through 1 engine and 3 trannys in a year. so just be caredful and dont blow urself up

    Work on your reaction time, and IMO, loose the front mount intake.

    WHY DOES HE HAVE TO LOOSE THE FRONT MOUNT INTAKE FOR? CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH IT? IS THERE SOMETHING BETTER OUT, THAT HE HAS TO GET RID OF IT? I have a front mount intake and I think it makes a big difference, compared to a short ram intake. SO PLEASE TAKE THE TIME AND EXPLAIN TO ME AND EVERYONE WHY HE SHOULD GET RID OF IT!!!!!!

    stop typing in caps for one thing, oh and since AEM does happen to be number one on the market right now that should answer your question, that fron mount intake is for show, a real CAI goes into the fender well, that is the best spot for one, the air has a more strait path to the throttle body, with the front mount it gets restricted with all the curves. Longer piping is good, only if it doesnt restrict the airflow. Just cause ur getting COLD air, doesnt mean u get HP, If the cold air has no way to get to the motor, or it heats up before it gets there, then its kinda pointless to have something that does the above. Look at dyno charts, unless u have experienced every type of intake dont be dissing, the ass-dyno doesnt count.

    oh, forgot to say, good choice on the wet kit, much safer than having free flowing nitrous floating around in your motor. hehe

    Why is he tearing up motors/tranys. I have friends that run 75 all the time like 10 runs a week for over a year and a half. You just need to get the fuel you need and be easy on the trany second gear syncros are the first to go. I know a kid that runs 85 on his caviler and has for 2 years (if a gm motor can do surley a honda motor can)i think its all in the user

    You're wrong. Take pictures when you blow your motor.

    The term "dry kit" and "wet kit" are VERY misunderstood. Just because it says "dry" doesnt mean that there is no extra fuel being added, it just means that the Nitrous goes into the manifold all by its lonesome. The extra fuel is added by the injectors instead of by a stream of fuel/nitrous at the intake tract. Nitrous Systems explained This site was posted here a long time ago and i found it very informative, enjoy.

    Exactly. There are a lot of fucktards out there that go and buy the biggest dry kit of NAAAAWWWWZZZZZZ they can find, dont touch the fuel or ignition and run the biggest shot they can. Then they wonder why they just fucked their engine. Fuel is key.

    yes i know i will burn up rings and stuff but in general it is in the way you tune it if you just slap on a kit and go you are looking for problems. hince my precautions (colder plugs, fuel pressure regulator, 6deg retard,) and ive now ordered a set of accell 260cc injedtors and a walbro fuel pump

    Thats what I was pointing out, wet kits are safer because they fuel and nitrous are injected at the same time and at the right amounts, with a dry kit your injectors have to compensate and most of the time they cant because when people buy a out-of-the-box ZEX dry kit, they bolt it into there intake, fill the bottle and go. Itll only last so long that way, my freind did that with his f22b1 in his Accord before he got the h22. He got about 16 bottles out of it before it went BOOM. No matter what you do nitrous is not good for your motor.

    you have to understand that fuel pressure is not fuel volume though. most people dont get that.
