Default to NOS or not

so with my winter project slowly coming together was thinking about adding NOS to the list.

the list so far includes

Gen 5 w/ LIM
3.3 pulley
S1X cam
1.61 Roller rockers
O.E. R lifters
105# springs
Headers
N* TB
LQ4
auto lite 104'*

Trans upgrades
input shaft
oil pump shaft
3000 stall converter
master rebuild kit with Z pak clutches
3.29'* w/ V8 chains

should i put NOs into the mix or not?

not looking for a 250 shot or anything just a lil extra kick maybe a 75 or 100 shot.

thoughts?

It would give you a kick. But if you have any thoughts about a intercooler, then the NOS will have to come off.

I know very little about it, perhaps Venom could answer that.

yeah but keep in mind John cant tune and thats why he'* sticking with the 75, im sure the GXP can be tuned he wont hesitate to run a 100 shot or more

as for NOS, im curious about what you guys just said, you cant run NOS with IC?

It'* my understanding that that NOS will freeze the IC heat exchanger. You can work around that by doing a multi port injection. To do that you would put a NOS injector by each fuel injector. I'll have to see if I can find a picture.
