I'm not too much of a nitrous expert but will try to help. As I understand it, you need to back off on timing by 2 degrees for every 50 hp of NO2 you squirt.

2 degrees of global timing will not make much difference in day to day driving. However, it is my sincere hope that someone who has more experience can respond to your post. They can probably address whether you need colder spark plugs as well.

It is my understanding that 75hp is about the limit you should try to squirt into a stock 3.8L v6. If true, you should have no worries running around with 3 degress less global spark.

Good luck

You can run 100 with a good tune and dont forget colder plugs.
