    So I just have a quick question. I bought a nitrous express kit from my friend for dirt cheap ($60) bottle, jets, everything. Now it has jets for a 75 shot now and he ran it on his 89 5.0 and used it and his car was stock. Is it safe to run stock on my 95 5.0 or would I be pushing it? Also noted it has 125,xxx miles on the engine and I did a recent tune up on it, plugs, wires, oil, new hoses, etc.

    I'd run it. Wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade the fuel pump before you run any bigger HP jet(s).

    Is it a wet or dry kit? Also make sure you run a WOT switch at minimum along with a master switch. Ideally you want a fuel pressure disable switch and a RPM window switch. Before you go to the track, make sure the bottle holder is NHRA compliant and you may or may not need a blowdown tube from the bottle.

    Also, some tracks will check the bottle certification. If it's out of date, you'll have to have it certified.
