Nitrous or stay with Water/Meth?

I'm thinking about making the switch to big boy juices! But I've got cold feet haha I have the water/meth kit sold if I decide to do it. And if I stick with my decision, it'll be off my truck tonight!
My other wonder is- single or dual stage. I've got the 225cc Elites that are pushing SO MUCH fuel that I think I can't go anything under a dual stage, but I like the simplicity of a single shot.
here's my 2 kits of choice; Nitrous Express makes both. The NXD2002 or the NXD4000. Both great kits- which one!

poll it up son :nate:

You have a decent sized turbo but with that much fuel available I don't think it would ever clean it all up without nitrous. Ditch the water/meth is my opinion for a big dry shot. Keep it simple. Then cross your fingers you don't need a new long block right after that tranny!

I think I'm gonna use a single shot to start off and see what I can do with that. It'll have me WELL into the 12s, so we'll see. In a week I'll have the truck going again and I'll get a fuel only baseline considering all runs were made on my half useable tranny. My one run I trapped 102 and it went 13.2- talk about slip

That actually sounds close to what it should be.

DKR is running 12.9's at 104...
Echo 13.0's at 102.9 at almost 1,000 lbs less...

To tell the whole story, the timeslip should be posted.

You know what you need though so it's not a big deal.

I agree, with 600 you should end up with times much faster then 13.2.
