Default No tune nitrous

So I'm getting antsy to start modding since the tuners won't hurry and be released. And since I've been planning to spray in the future anyway, I'm thinking of getting it now. I've had spray on a vehicle before (08 Mustang GT) but these trucks intimidate me a little more cause I'm less familiar with them.

Obviously, there is no tuning available as of yet. So, I was thinking of running a 75 shot for now. I would be on premium pump gas (93) but have access to 110 unleaded for extra insurance if need be. The truck is otherwise stock (well, a K&N drop-in and an exhaust cutout hardly count as mods). I'm also not really wanting to change my plugs yet since my truck only has 2,000 miles on it. I seen where Flaco put longtubes and a 100 shot on his R/T with no tune and the AFR was still safe. I just want to hear it directly that it will be safe.

Here are my basic plans. We'll call them stages since it sounds cool.

Stage 1: Stock intake, cutout, 75 shot untuned.
Goals: 13.99 or less@100+mph on street tires. That's only .4 seconds away from my stock time so it should be easy. And I'll hit the governor at 105 anyway so my initial plans aren't too big.

Stage 2: CAI (been waiting to see if something more impressive than current offerings came out. Will get a Volant if nothing is released before the DSP), Diablosport Predator, cutout, 180 degree thermostat, and a 100 shot.
Goals: 13.49 on street tires would be sweet. Traction may not allow it though. I have ET Streets, just looking at wheel options. And with the ability to retard timing and remove the governor, the 100 shot should be good.

Stage 3: Really too far away to bother with. Full boltons, maybe a cam, and a 150 shot sounds good.

Thanks guys for taking the time. Oh, and I'm looking at ZEX kits for now.
