One of the most extreme topics to ever discuss and i can understand both points of view.

But how easy is it to mess up a porting/polishing job with inexperience in doing the such.
Ill probally do both engine work as well as a 50 shot of nitrous. People consider it cheating some dont prefer it but it is very easy powerfor very cheap.

Default not a big fan, but its your car

I am not realy a big fan of nitrous my self. I look at it like this, a runner can train and condition thier muscles and run faster than me...then they can take a little something...and go waaaaay faster than me....thats how I look at it......so yeah, you will go faster with nitrous....bottom line....but only with the shot....but its not my car, its yours....if you have done it before and enjoy it....do it again....do what you enjoy with your car....you paid for it....this is a little off topic I guess, considering you were asking for advice rather than opinions (sp) but seeing that you were getting more of the later than the former I figured this would not be tooooo out of context. Do the shot....drive your car.....have some fun....and if others dont like it.....dont let them drive it :P

I plan on doing both nitrous and internals.If the mods Willwren has done are that cheap i have drove cars that ran 10'* and 12'* im not trying for that just looking to have a little fun with a heavy *** car maybe suprise a few small blocks. I probally wont do nitrous till after i establish a solid baseline after internal mods.

So guess time to research porting and polishing.

Default sounds good to me

sounds smart way to go...get the engine solid before you juice it. and a 50 shot is not extreem, I am sure if you take care of the engine (manifolds exp of course) before you do it every thing will be fine, I am a desile mech however, I work with turbos and */C'* dont deal much with nitrious.

Done right, it does no harm. The key part of that statement is "done right"

Following the recommendations of the various manufacturers, the shot size shouldn't exceed 40% of the motors rated hp. So hitting the motor with a 150 shot would probably not be a healthy thing to do. Working up from a 30 shot with the proper fuel jetting to keep the motor from running lean.

I choose to run a wet system using a single fogger in the intake plenum. To me that is the safest method, allowing to tune in a method I'm comfortable with. (I don't trust dry systems that use the stock injectors to provide the fuel.)
