GOOD LUCK!!! do it! seriously! many people are against it... I was told when i put it on my D16 that i was dumb and was gonna blow the motor. i had H/I/E intake mani and a few other bolt-ons and had ZERO issues i ran a zex dry 55 shot... just when you run a setup use two step colder plugs and premium fuel. in your case someone else might be able to verify this but a 100 shot you might want to tweet the timing +/- 1-2 degree with pro you should be able to get it running just right and it might also help to get a A/F gauge so you can see whats going on. on and depending where your from get a permit! some of my friends were very surprised when i applied for a nitrous permit so i would be less likely to get in trouble f i was pulled over it was a CYA thing. good luck!

annnnddddd forgot to mention you asked if 100 shot is good, i forgot the exact number but i believe the rule of thumb is about 50% of the vehicles HP so say a stock motor is 160 then a 80 shot "should" be ok but you are built up a little so 100 should be good just watch your numbers like i said an A/F gauge is a good tool!
