Default Dry Shot with Stock Injectors

Looking at dry shot kits, wondering if I get a 70-100 dry shot will my stock injectors be able to keep up safely? Anyone running a dry shot?

I remember when I had my 5.7 charger I was able to run a 125 wet kit no problem. Might post this over in the Nitrous section and see if anyone can get to it quicker.

Your stock injectors won't add any fuel at all and your motor will go boom. Don't use a dry kit.

A dry shot will not make you a happy person at those levels. Without a MAF you're pushing your luck at even a 50 shot unless you have a wideband installed and know if you're starting to run lean.

A wet kit is your safety and most reliable bet and you can easily run a 75 shot with 1 stage colder plugs on the stock tune. You don't neccessarily need the colder plugs, but without being able to tune you should try to protect yourself as much as possible. I personally run a wet shot on mine regularly with capabilities of a 150 shot, but it's a tuned n/a high compression stock bottom-end engine runnig 2 stages colder.

I wasn't aware we didn't have a MAF so yeah wet will be the best. Not something I'm gonna do right now but was curious. And I'm gonna put some videos together soon and post them. Get good idle video with some good outside exhaust sound it's so sick lol
