How big is your sprayer? A big industrial one could spray several hundred gallons in a few seconds whereas a sprayer made from a squirt bottle would probably spray a pint or two before your finger got tired.

You still left out a few details.

General rule is 100-125HP anything over that and you need to step up to forged pistons.

Sure some people have run 250 shots on bone stock engines but, that is NOT recommended.

Of course, only at the track, right?

Hate for you to get rear ended and have that stupid bottle blow up.............

lol hows the bottle gonna blow up? I suppose if the rear ending caused a flame to erupt that managed to find the Nitrous. Remember, Nitrous is only a catalyst . . . which I have no doubt you already know Poncho . . .
