Late twenties been working on cars for a decade getting ready to build my first nitrous drag car with my experienced buddy. I just picked a empty 454 block which is .40 over and .10 on the crank. I plan on buying the jegs complete bottom kit with forged pistons and another top end kit from them that includes heads. I will get the part numbers posted up here soon. This build is Definetly going to happen and I have many questions. Off the top of my head
1-What is a good size carb to get for this setup
2- how much nitrous and be thrown down this forged 462? ( the kit I'm buying says the engine will be a 540 after)
3-what is better msd or magneto?
4- what is the proper transmission for all this power?
5- what is the proper wheel and tire size ?
6- nitrous cars like bigs cams right?

All this is going to be in a g body 87 Monte Carlo. I know some of this may sound crazy but I need to start somewhere. Thanks for any help in advance.
