Yes this is a good cam for mild nitrous. It has the extra exhaust duration .

I like the next Crane cam for mild-moderate nitrous/blower where a hyd is desired.
Crane HMV278-2. (powermax H278-2)
278-290 222-234 114LSA. Can experiment with the cam installed on a 104 to 109 intake C/L for best effect on nitrous.
Always degree it first before moving it.
Its a good one for mild street-strip nitrous.
