150-200 shot shouldn't be a problem. However you'll need to retard the total timing about 8-10 degrees when you dump the nitrous to it. Cylinder pressure and temperature goes way up and the engine needs less timing. Be sure you DON'T use extended tip spark plugs with that much nitrous or you could get preignition then detonation. Put a fuel pressure gauge where you can see it when you dump the nitrous to it. Make DAMN sure your fuel pressure doesn't drop during your run. If the engine goes lean from lack of fuel you'll be building a new engine. Have fun.
