Just for fun... How to run nitrous on a 7.3 safely

Alright guys, I'm bored and was thinking how safe would it be to run nitrous on my truck after i finish my build and what extras would u recommend to accommodate nitrous safely. Also the only reason I would want it is for is for the drag strip, punks on the street, and the occasion trucks pulls that dont care if you run nitrous.

My build plan is:

Cryo'd fordged rods
250/100 injectors
arp head studs
arp main studs
factory head gasket
reg return with fuel bowl delete
bigger hpop (dont know what one yet)
dual superduty fuel pumps
1.15 housing (already have a 38r)
batmo wheel
910 comp springs
smith brothers push rods

When i'm in there:
new oil pan (thats lineX'd)
new manifolds (ceramic coated)
new glow plugs
new oil cooler

Other mods:
bts
traction bars
better drive shafts
fuel psi gauge
hpop gauge

From the guys who have experience with nitrous, will my future modded motor hold up running it? and if not what would you reccomend doing to my motor to make it hold up? Any help would be good?

Re: Just for fun... How to run nitrous on a 7.3 safely

Thats up for debate if I decide to keep my 38r I want to mod it the most I can, but I might go with a different turbo too idk yet

Batmo lost 20+ hp on the 38r..... So don't waste your $$

Re: Just for fun... How to run nitrous on a 7.3 safely

Ditch the batmo and 100% nozzles. The main studs by them self will not solve any main cap walk and if you put studs in it should be line honed. Nitrous is pretty simple on a diesel. How much you spray will depend on what that bottom end will hold up too.

2000 f250 7.3L ccsb. Mods so far ts chip,tw tunes,6637 intake,5" mbrp straight pipe,4 gauge pod,irate full fuel system/RR irate t4 turbo mount and external wastegate,bw s467 fmw,arp studs,comp 910,smith bro's push rods,gen3 and fullforce 275cc/200%

Re: Just for fun... How to run nitrous on a 7.3 safely

What would you run instead of 100%... 200%?? and the main studs are cheap and i will aready have the engine apart so i figure what the heck i'll put them in.

With the nitrous i'm basicly wondering if the rods will hold together
