nitrous and a big block

so i have a std bore 460 with d3 heads that need to be gone threw now if i pulled this apart had bottom end balanced put a forged piston and gap the ring for spray put it all back together and port the heads what kind of power could i see with a 300 shot of spray? i do realize this motor will be on the ragged edge every time i spreay it could be its last. i basiclly want a bottom drawer budget nitrous huffing mud racing motor .

i drag raced using NOS for 28yrs, a 300 shot will vary depending on bottle pressure and how accurate your jets are. 300 may be to much for your engine, your cam will determine that, exhust dur. and LSA means the world when spraying. Id sick to 150 to 175,you may find better results.

Listen to what Mud Bud said!!
I would'nt start off with a 300 shot!! gotta start off small and work your way up to the higher power.

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!
