Don't assume the 4 deg key moves the cam by 4deg.
Degree it and move it as required, using cam gear offset bushings and a cam bolt lock plate.
200hp shot requires race gas.

Get a separate fuel system for the nitrous. Do not piggyback.

cjay,how long does it take you to assemble the engine? do you record all clearances?do you custom fit all the parts,ie: file the ring gap? do you measure all the side gaps in the rods,do you fit each piston as exact as possible?
When you take the engine apart,do you compare the wear from the original build specs?

No i didn't get exact with the measurements..it was my first Re-build of a motor...but i remember the ring gap in the cylinder wall was 18 on the feeler gauge but i didn't check each piston to each cylinder I WANT do ALL for next season..

build it a couple more times before you add 200 NO2.You are well on your way to building good engines,just get a little more experience.Until you take apart an engine thats hurt you have not yet really learned corrective measures.After that,move your power up and your experience will make that engine last longer

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................

On the bottle,nothing below 2,500.

As long as you posted here and not in the engine section,What have you done with the F-body's suspension and approaching high 9's,what have you done about a roll bar/cage??.

Ya im not sure if i posted in the right section...the motor is in a fox body mustang mini tub. it has a 8 point
I havent weight the car yet...I cant use nitrous in a car that weights less than 2500?
Do i have make it a separte fuel system for the nitrous even if its a 150 shot on a plate system?
would you recommend a nitrous conroller for a 150 shot? because my car is a lighter?
thanks I Appreciate the help everyone!

Do the dedicated separate fuel system. You do not need a nitrous controller just a rpm window switch+WOT nitrous switch
set up so that the nitrous comes on right at your flash stall speed at launch ...4500rpm.

for pump gas make the 150shot work right from the get go. You will go faster.
Get a timing retard. -6deg for a 150shot.

A 200+shot will require 110 octane race gas.
Top rind end gap is too small for a nitrous motor. Open it up by 30%
.024" to .026" is good ( forged pistons)

hypers open the gap to .031top .026 sec.

No this gap is not too big.

Engines will take all kinds of nitrous power
as long as detonation is avoided.

If you allow the engine to detonate on nitrous, it will come unglued sooner or later.
low octane gas, fuel lean out, too much timing.

Race fuel mix with pump?

Hey guys..
If I run a separate mini fuel system cell for my nitrous with race fuel...can I have pump gas in my primary cell??

Will this mess up the distribution of nitrous/fuel?

Thanks for the Feedback... advice pointed me the direction needed to go Fast
