I'd like to hear from anyone using nitrous on their z car.How much are you using and does anyone know how much nitrous induced hp the stock pistons can take.NOS told me stock pistons could stand 100 hp shot, but that seems like too much to me.

I talked to nos and they said a stock Z engine could take a 70 to 100 hp shot. This is what I am shooting for...however first I still have to get my cam and flattops....then NOS....I already have the switch installed ;-)...

Ive got nitrous on my 71 240.
Im also running a holley 4 barrel carb and holley
fuel pump. If you get NOS make sure you get a system with a timer. This allows the flow of NOS
and gas for short periods of time. it makes it somewhat safer for your car. I dont know the exact
amount of added horsepower, but its quite exhilerating.
