      In all honesty, what you want to do is too much. Get a stage 1 turbo kit from cts and be fine.

      Turbos are not too much of a mission, that stage 1 kit is a 6 hour bolt on job, and then you have that power all the time, not just in spurts.

      general rule of thumb if you're trying to be safe with nitrous...spray half of what your horsepower is...

      i'd hit it with a 75 wet shot all day and you shouldn't have problems...be smart with it and put a window switch and WOT switch in place so you only spray with the fun pedal all the way down and it stops when you shift and you're good


      might get away with a 100 shot but personally i'd put a 75 from NX on it and have some fun

      I have a 95 vr6 that I'm getting ready to turbo and selling some parts that I don't want....I'm selling a schrick intake manifold if your interested ... Currently my car has schrick 268 cams, schrick Intake manifold, euro throttle body,GIAC chip, CAI, full brospeed exhaust, and it put out 223 whp .....don't go nitrous its unreliable power and not to mention illegal (depending on state) to have hooked up while on public roads...your call but with your set up the schrick intake would work great 4500 rpm and schrick kicks in ...trust me you'll enjoy it a lot better than nitrous ....either that or save money for a turbo kit...stay away from nitrous you'll regret it in the long-run ...

      What's the difference between the euro throttle body and the stock one? And how much do you want for that intake mani

      The euro tb has around 10-15 % better airflow because its without a internal inlet flap ......as far as the SCHRICK is concerned I'm asking $875 ....

      CTS stage 1 is way better than NAWZ! Nitrous is so 10 years ago!
