i know i guy that has a BONE stock 89 5.0 coupe that ran a 125 shot on his car for a while straight. If it was me i wouldnt run more than 100 if your going to do it all the time. Your car may not have forged pistons with it being a 92. Im pretty sure they went hyperutectic after 89. If you have forged it should be ok if you have hypers.....good luck! Nitrous=death to motors! lol

the 92 has the forged, they went hyper in 93. I've sprayed a 150 dry kit on forged pistons no problem. That wasn't on stock head gaskets either though....just a thought.

I used Corteco, but the guys from Outlaw Performance swear by Cometics and they have all run in the 9's with some type of power adder, some times more than one. Both are great.

Mr. Gasket's steel head gaskets are made by Cometic, or vice versa. Mr. Gasket is WAY cheaper.

How much nitrous? ---->| |<---- THIS much before it goes "BANG" is just about right. LOL
