I was wanting to do the same thing, but I don't have a heavy fuel tune. Can the ecu compensate for more fuel up to a point? I run innovatives extreme race tune. Wondering how high of a shot I could run without having to get a N20 tune.

yes to a point it does compensate using boost readings and such to adjust fuel pulse width to give it more fuel, gas and diesel engines all use injector drivers to regulate how much fuel the engine is getting by monitoring its input from certain sensors , a chip basically takes those readings from the inputs ,and manipulates the outputs over factory to maiximize fuel flow ,amongst other things to get more power , so with that said , in a diesel once chipped , has alot of extra fuel that doesnt get used , therefore the black smoke we all like is seen , but really is wasted power , the nitrous cools the air goin into the engine makes the intake air more dense allowing the combustion chamber to hold more air and fuel, the more air you can run thru a diesel motor and the cooler you can keep it , the more power you can get , and less black smoke meaning more power , you probably dont need a heavy fuel tune is what im getting at , if you are smoking on accel, the nitrous will help clear some of that up, try and burn all the excessive fuel you already have, hope this helps

IMO if you're going to be getting nitrous to run at the track, get a nitrous tune. They back the timing down, injecting more fuel earlier to get the most possible fuel in the cylinder. Works very well with spray. Doesn't work so good without it (lots of heat, smoke, etc.) so its just a track file. Allows you to run a bigger shot. For the street you should be ok with a normal race file and a smaller shot. At $4 a pound its not likely you'll be spraying it all the time anyway...

good point about the timing , backing the timing down in a situation where you are at the track and trying to get max potential is a good idea , no crazy detination
