I hope you ordered a wet kit. Running a 150 shot needs to have a lot of effort put into the engine build before you can just hit the button and go. 100 is considered the top end of a "safe shot" with 125 being the limit on a stock rotating assembly. Either way, you really need to work up to the larger shots so you can map your AFR accurately to ensure you don't go stoichiometric at WOT and pop the top of your piston.

To do big shots with relative safety you need to get 2-3 stage colder plugs, pull 4-8 degrees of timing from STOCK, run high octane fuel (highest available), and monitor your A/F ratio very carefully.

You really need to have a look through the nitrous forum on here to get a gauge of what you need to do to run nitrous safely. We don't condone the "spray it 'til you break it" mentality of the former decade.
