Default Nitrous and Compression

Do you want High or Lower Compression when running nitrous?

because you want to eliminate ALL chances of detonation.

but you can go either way

I ran 11-1 with a 250 shot and it was great.
I know of people spraying a 400 shot on a 15-1 compression motor.
but if you want to run pump gas still with the spray IMO I wouldnt go any higher than 11-1.
