I'm not sure what a "fbo" R/T is, but to run a 150 shot you need to pull 4-6 degrees of timing and 1 stage colder plugs, preferably 2 stages for a safety margin. Purge is optional, but get a bottle heater and a RPM switch box so you don't spray through shifts. I would also pick up the N/O plate as it's a better spray pattern than a tap jet.

I would also get a Wideband so you can know exactly what your AFR is then tune your jets properly rather than relying on their just their jet chart. The days of 'pill it til you kill it' are long gone.

Sounds like a lot of hassle to run nitrous. Do they make a retard box for our trucks? I checked into this a while back and found Mallory made a good one for Chevy LS1 engines that seemed flawless. And MSD had one for us but as I remember there was an issue with what spark plug wires could be used and I just gave up from there. Now come some more dumb questions as far as pulling timing is concerned. What are the timing degree differences between a 87 tune and 93 tune in numbers or do you know? Do you have to pull timing when you're running a stock tune or 87 tune? The retard box is supposed to automatically retard the timing a the time the shot or comes on when the nitrous is armed. On top of everything you mentioned it seems like that would save a lot of hassle for people who like to keep their existing tunes if it were possible.

what about 75 wet shot? I was looking at possibly doing that to go along with my hemifever 89 octane tune and edge 2800 stall. Would that be ok or would I need to do some other mods to run that safe on a 2013 hemi?
