what's the chances of me blowing up my bone stock chevy 1500 z71 with 90k miles by spraying a 75 shot of nitrous oxide?

Because he wants NAWS!!!

Our trannies are weak links, and if they want to go, they will, stock or modded up. 75 will not do anything to your engine, as long as you are not stupid. On your truck, though, I don't expect it to have you doing 12's in the 1/4.:jester:

I'm spraying my 5.3L with 125k miles on it. Just make sure you aren't stupid about it and you'll be fine. The engines can easily take a 150 shot. Like said, it's the transmissions that aren't so strong.

I had a 100 shot on mine and it didn't seem to hurt it. I only used it twice though. Then I sold it to my buddy with a 2000 5.3 with about 180,000 miles and a week later he said it blew his throttle body and threw a rod (destroyed his engine). But I think he did something wrong.

If anything use that money on the nitrous and get something else:imo and then after you get some better mods and a black bear then maybe some NAWS

Cold air helps, but there are plenty of things you can do yourself and save yourself money too. Longtube headers, cold air intake, servo for the tranny, exhaust. You cant just put one of these and expect a huge diffrence but once you start putting them all together then you will see a huge diffrence. Then you put a Tune on top of that, and your set.

Edit: dont say TB spacer here, it will start a war. I made that mistake of buying one and they do not work on non tbi motors.

Alot of the people on here are going to tell you to either go with Magnaflow(I have it), Borla, or Corsa. Flowmaster is just a cheap brand :imo and I hate it. You can go to a shop to get it done, I prefer a 2 1/2 piping for good sound and flow. True duals are just good for sound becuase they wont give you a huge performance gain.

Thats fine, it makes for a good sporty look :imo. I have 2 friends that have it done to their truck with 4" tips and it looks great. What kind of muffler are you going to run then?
