Nitrous on a 7.3?

Id like to put nitrous on my truck. My buddy has a kit he had on his 2001 cummins that he sold and is willing to let me try it out. He has different jets from 50hp to 110hp. My question is do i have to worry about not having head studs or anything like that? All info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Matt

You should be good if you have stock injectors.

Yeah stock injectors. I searched but couldn't find any horror stories about a 7.3 with a setup like mine but then again I have no idea how many people are running a setup like this. Im not putting injectors in it cause I gross around 26,000 lbs a lot but I just want a little more when im not pulling. Thanks for your input. Anyone else?

Yeah I checked that there is another thread on here that tells you what rods you have by your engine serial number and there is also a plug beside your oil filter housing you can remove and check which ones you have for sure.
