Default Nitrous questions and other stuff

So I was Thinkin of putting a 75 shot on my truck but was wondering if I should go wet or dry, I didn't know if the factory ecu would richen the fuel enough for a dry kit. An also the factory intake scares me with the throttle body being at the back of the intake.. Any knowlodge would be great.

Also I want to the converters off, anyone know where I can get the trick sensors to turn the rear o2's off? And what about a torque converter for the trans?

I have very little knowledge(and no experience) with nitrous, but have always known dry to be much more dangerous...

On my s10 I made my own o2 trick...I bought 2 spark plug non foulers (spacers) that had the correct thread size and pitch as the o2 sensor. Drill one out a little bit so the sensor will fit in, and thread the sensor into it. Use the second one simply as a spacer and reassemble it all, it puts the o2 out of the exhaust stream. Had it like this for over 100,000 miles, with a hollow cat, no check engine light once I did this. That being said, I don't know if it'd work on other vehicles and don't know why it worked either....hmmm?

If you can afford a wet kit then go with that... The wet kit has 2 lines, 1 for the nitrous and 1 for fuel. Dry kits are nitrous only. Its always better to run a wet kit so you dont lean out when you spray, and you dont have to tune for more fuel and run rich on a normal basis. Also remember to be safe with it. Make sure you get the proper window switches that only pray the nitrous between a certain RPM range. Very few people fun nitrous liek they do in the fast and the furious with the push buttons. As far as your concern about the TB placement its not a problem.
