C441s with nitrous

Hello everyone I ordered most everything for my last engine through Jon. I used P51 heads and at 547 cubes it made 940 hp. It also got sprayed with a twin fogger 700 hp worth. As with most things 4.80s just don't seem fast enough anymore. I got a C&C 5 inch borespace block and my plan was to use C 441 heads on it. I have been getting opinions that the C 441 doesn't like nitrous in large quantities and I should use a wedge head for my nitrous. So I thought I would ask the guys that for sure know. I am very at ease reading plugs and tuning big hits of nitrous. But if the heads don't like it I will go a different way. Any info would be great thanks for reading.

This isn't the place to ask that question. You should be asking people that actually build these engines and know what works. You need to call Kaase, or Carrol Carter, or Rich Whilhem (BOSS 429 on here). You're
building a high tech, expensive engine and need advice from the experts so you don't end up with a mutt or a bomb.
