Nitrous on tuned truck? stock injectors/turbo

Alright so I have a nitrous kit that is just sitting around that I never got to use and i figure why not put it on the truck? I know i will need to get a lighter tune that what i have on there now to compensate for it, along with new jets and a new solenoid but over all it could be more power for cheap.

Do you think I will see an decent improvement in power with stock turbo and stock injectors? Or is the truck pretty much maxed out and I will need to install injectors in order to take advantage of the N20? Not much comes up on this when i search it.

On ur race tune, if you have any fuel left (black smoke). There is more power to be made... Jus need the fuel to make the power...

I have black smoke when i punch it but that's about it. It clears right up, thats with using the Atlas 40... idk what Atlas tune would be best for nitrous though.

I would probably get a nitrous specific tune though. im sure it wouldnt pull to much HP from the tune that it would nullify the effects of the N20

Also --- i just found an article from deisel power mag where they put nitrous on a tuned 6.0 .... put down 371 hp with the tune and 441 with the nitrous... with my mods i was thinking i was closer to 420-430 BEFORE nitrous... if im looking at a max of around 450 with it I wouldnt even see the point... I would at least like to hit 500 with it, or am I dreaming.

if you dont have much fuel left there will be little benifts with nitrous, it will make less power if u run it to lean

The hp should still increase but you will reduce the amount of torque substantially

so if thats the case of Hercules tune would be better right? more fuel? then get a custom nitrous tune in order to help pull a little timing ?
