That depends on your motor's capacity for additional power, and your method of applying the NOS, and your cars ability to put the power to the track.

If your motor isnt overbuilt to accept what you throw at it, poof. I see plenty of peoples cars set up to 300+300, and am sure that the Pro type classes use much more than that.

Your money is better spent on a few pails of 110 octane unleaded if you are looking for performance with reliability on nitrous.

start at 28deg advance and make sure the fuel presssure regulator is set right.


150hp shot mix the gas 50-50 with 92. More than 150hp shot run it start.

A Full throttle switch combined with a rpm switch that contols minimum rpm at activation is worth more than staging at your purpose.
If the converter flashes at 3500 rpm (actual flash at launch) make the nitrous engage real close to that, not at low rpm.
If the traction goes away, delay the hit a bit.
Get some AIR lift air bags for your Monte.

There are some local grudge racers in my area that I talked to one day. They have a plate and two foggers on a small block ford... runs high 7s in the 1/4 in a fox body. I believe they told me by the end of the track they are spraying around 800-1000hp. So... if your engine is built for it you can do it but It totally depends on what you have and what your working with. Too many variables to say xx amount is safe.
