Nitrous and fuel questions
Okay this is my first post so bare with me please
I purchased a turn key 79 F150 short box with a FRPP 521 with some top end mods, none of it documented. Waiting for winter to do the tear down. The questions I have are it is set up with a 350 shot of nitrous and necessary controllers. The controller only reads up to 11 degree retard, should it not be more like 12 degrees?
From what I've read on here 350 shot sounds like way more than this unit is built for and I don't want to burn it out first time out!
The truck is built for mud drags, the previous owner was running Q16 and was only running it because that's what he was told to do. I need a little more than that to pay the big dollars when the engine is only 10.5:1. Best I can come up with is because of the unknown tune it is the best way to cover my butt.
I guess my other question is, what would be the best choice of fuel if I remove the NOS or say I went down to a 150-200 shot so that my controller is in working range.
Thanks in advance for any insight
