I've heard that at a certain point no matter how much nitrous you throw at something, it wont make anymore power. So my question is, can I make 450-475 at the wheels with a stock top end, and a built bottom end?
yes but it won't last long esp with the stock worn valve train.... there was a local guy making about that with a bone stock 86 gt hitting it with two stages of 150 each. Think he ended up cracking the block recently though.
there was someone on here the did spray a bone stocker with 2 stages(300) and ran mid 10's he said for 2 years on it. I cant remember who it was though...but was sure enough impressed with it lasting that long and goping that deep on a stocker.

Yes... i sprayed a NOS 150 shot through a cobra/gt-40 plate with gt-40ps and a cobra intake and got 394 at 6000ft elevation.
And there's a car up here with a junkyard motor out of a 87 lincoln had around 120K on the clock. Stock E7TE's, professional products intake and upper plenum and a 75 shot each 2 shark tooth's after the TB... ran 12.30's in denver
Car is still on the road with that motor after 4yrs and at least 20+ bottles
Stock cam? Your basically building a Real Street moter without any advantage of trick flow heads and intake. The guys I know doing it are heavy into tuning each cylinder to keep them alive. I dont think it would last very long at all if you did get up to 475rwhp.
i don't see a problem making some good power with a fogger kit.... getting the nozzles as close to the cylinder as possible so you don't have to compete with intake runner and head intake runner as little as possible... just my .02
