Does anyone on the east coast tune/build these motors with nitrous? I've been doing lots of looking around and plan on upgrading spark plugs, fuel rail, get an SRI, injectors, engine management and everything to keep it reliable. Problem is I keep seeing tons of posts of people arguing about wet vs dry systems and what not. I'm not actually doing any of the work myself btw but I know I have the budget for it.

Wet is safer. and If want to do it right, you'll need lower compression pistons and bigger rigs gap.
I've found out i'm local to KP Tuning and will have them do the build. I've decided on running a 80 dry shot with their management/tuning. 80 Shot won't require any motor work besides fueling upgrades to be safe (In line fuel pump, 034 upgraded fuel rail, maybe lines and bigger injectors) Once my current spark plugs give out i'll be switching to copper 2 ranges colder. Will keep you all posted for results!
