Big difference between 100 on a BBC and 200 on a SBC. I'd be comfortable running a 100 shot on BBC or SBC with hypereutectic with a rather conservative tune, but the larger doses... no thanks. If I'm building an engine I pretty much know before I purchase pistons whether it'll see nitrous or not. If it's going to, it gets forged pistons. If I have an engine brought to me with hypereutectic pistons in it and the owner wants nitrous, I don't recommend anything more than 100 and I warn them of the possible failure, that's all. I don't want to have some dude blow up his motor and point the finger at me. Err on the side of caution, especially when it's not my stuff.
Never half ass two things... Whole ass one thing!
