Nitrous on an L26?

Did a search first, I thought it would have been covered by now. But, I couldn't find any info. Would be a little tough to do a good wet injection system with my triple Webers. But, I was more curious how strong the bottom end and pistons are? How much abuse can they really take? If I used the nitrous at the strip once in a while, what can I expect to lay down before running into serious problems? Who has experience with Nitrous and the L26?

Should be able to handle a small shot (50hp) provided you retune your carbs & timing for it. I don't think stock pistons/rings would handle much more than that...

Cool. That's what I was looking for exactly.
I can set the carbs up a wee bit on the rich side. But, the nice thing with a wet setup is that you don't have to worry about tuning the rest of the car too much unless you go crazy.
