Piston ring Question (For Nitrous)

Hi everybody.

I have a big question. Right now, I'm in the process to rebuild my 468 BBC. I find forged question and forged crank. I want to used a 150 shot of nitrous on this motor. I want to buy a set of ring. I heard than I have to put Plasma moly ring if I want to used nitrous. I have few question:

1- Am I oblige to put plasma moly ring, does chrome moly ring can be used if
I run a 150 shot of nitrous without any danger to broke my motor?

2- I was finding a set of ring from total seal on summit racing (Part number TSR-CR2090-65 Total Seal Classic Race Piston Rings) - Does this ring will be suitable for my application?

3- In the description of those ring, it's write non-gapless, what does it mean, I know in my last rebuilt, I was oblige to take piston ring filler to make the right gap for my motor. If it's write no gapless, will I be able to still used this piston ring filler to make the proper gap to used nitrous...

4- I have a 4.310 bored, on those ring, it's write 4.315 bored????? will I be able to used those ring

5- Those total seal ring have a value of 99$, does anybody else have information on a another brand of ring for the same price, gapless or not..
I dont want to used just total seal, but It's everything I was finding for right now...I dont want to pay the cost of an arm and a leg.. I'm limited right now in my budget with all the purchase I did.

Need advice and help everybody

Thanks in advance, Stephane

Chevy man forever!
