The ring gap on nitrous is different than on N/A engines.The top ring gets hot and expands.If the ring butts together your not going to be a happy camper.I'm not a big fan of Eagle anything and nitrous is hard on engines.True enough they sell you as big a shot as 200 plate,but not the rest of the story.You should have a dedicated separate fuel supply for race gas and the electronics to retard the ignition timing at the top end.Forged pistons,GOOD forged rods(not the lowest cheapest common denominator),and not a open question cast crank,with good rings.I coined a name for a concept.It's call "the open book build". No budget,no time limits.You just over a open time span when money is available collect the good parts you need in a build with clear goals.When you done you add up what is cost to do.And you are mindful that do-overs cost more................
