If you are running the turbo forged pistons yes. Nos is good keeps detonation down cools intake temp. If you got the turbo pistons you are safe any ware under 450HP

are you a member over at RPS?

powerdog how is that spec stage 4 clutch for a daily driver? Would stage 3 or stage 3+ work with that same kind of power. Just asking because spec states that the stage 4 isn't for daily driving due to harsh engagement and stage 3 and 3+ is better for daily driving.
