Shosource is rarely on this forum so it would be easier to contact them on their website. Chad mentioned they are on the Facebook groups.

someone else would need to reply as I haven't dealt with nitrous
Do you have an ATX or MTX? ATX tranny's are not that strong, I've been through two rebuilds already on one of my cars (and its stock)

If the car is maintained and in good running condition then you should be in the 180-190s in stock form. I've seen bone stock SHOs Dyno over 200 at the wheels. It's just a matter of how healthy the engine is. I don't know much about Nitrous so I can't answer your question but I do know that an ATX isn't the car that I would run nitrous on. Too weak of a trans in my opinion.

If you are in the Facebook groups, look for Mike Stimson. He's the owner of SHOSource.

well i dont think the car was maintained well... theres almost a cars worth of extra oil, ignition system is shot, and the throttle cable is on its last legs, the guy i got it from clearly didnt know the gem he had... once i get a new DIS module ill take it to a dyno to figure out what i need to do from there i guess

THe other thing is you need to figure out where the power comes in. You can get top end higher numbers but maybe stay the same or a little less down low. Where in the power band do you want the extra kick. That should guide your decision. I don't know how much time I've spent in triple digits vs local driving and short highway bursts to navigate traffic.
