Small shot with supercharger
Currently have a stock block/hyper pistons(rebuilt about 2 years /2000 miles ago) 302 with tfs 170 61cc heads, 1 5/8 long tubes, xe264 cam, box r intake and a novi 2000. Pullied for 15-17psi at around 6k, but also have a 10psi at 6k pulley.
Fuel is an aeromotive 340 fuel pump, 3/8 and 6an lines, 60lb injectors, stock regulator. I am also running water meth injection.
Ecu is a Haltech Elite running a crank trigger and LS coils.
Ok, now that that's out of the way, I was have toying with the idea of adding a small dry shot (35-50) in the lower rpm ranges to help get the car moving until the novi really kicks in. Something like 3000-4500 or so. I can have the Haltech control it by giving it the 'armed' signal. It will then activate the shot between whatever parameters I put in and will obviously richen the tune at the same time.
Now am I playing with too much fire here, noting the stock block. We haven't done the final tune yet(and I'd like to make my decision before then so I don't have to pay twice), however it made 400rwhp at 8psi before we pulled it due to a leaking meth nozzle connection.
Noting that the max power shouldn't increase as the nitrous would be turned off by then, but would the torque in the lower rpms where the blower is making around 3-4psi be a bit too much?
I don't have any track or power goals, just like playing with stuff and trying different things.
