Re: what do you think?

It all depends ofcourse on how much nitro you will shoot... And when.
You can go up to additional 50hp with nitro without any problem as long as you shoot it on full throttle and above say 3000rpm. No nitro when shifting gears. The gear box will handle it as long as you do not use sticky tires and clutch. The power has to go somewhere and it rather spin the wheels then break the transmision. My guess is you WILL use a wet system, right? Otherwise you will fry your engine.
And by the way, when you put in the 50Hp nozzle in the nitrous injector it does not mean you really get +50Hp in your engine ;-)
