3.8 liter & nitrous?

Well I just recently got a 3.8 liter engine. Would it be able to handle nitrous and how much do you think it could take? I want the maximum.

Well like everyone will tell you...it will handle as much until it blows up. Depending on the age and condition of the engine you might be able to get away with 50-75 hp shot....but if you beat on it all night, Thar she blows!!

50 to 75 would be a good amount.Not sure why you want to have a big NO2 shot? what does the rest of the car have for equipment? Is this a race car?
