Drag Comp or not?

I just purchased a Comp Box today for my 01 and i was wondering if anybody has the Drag upgrade on theirs? Im kinda worried bout gettin it because they make you sign a waver that you no what can happen or something like that. i have a 95 FASS and a stock vp44 pump with probably 10,000 miles on it. I don''t sled pull or anything. it is my daily driver that i pull with and have fun in. Just want to no whats so much more dangerous bout the drag upgrade. o and i do have a pyro and boost gauge.

The drag comp isn't really that much more dangerous. It bumps the fueling curve up a little higher which will net you about 20 more hp, and it tends to fuel a little harder than the regular comp in some spots. I don't think the actual amount of fuel is increased though, the comp box does a pretty good job of maxing out the fueling solenoid.

I have a drag comp, and I've switched it out with my buddies regular comp box a couple of times, and there is definitely a difference. I also didn't have to sign a waver or anything like that.

Ok thanks so pretty much its worth the extra $$? do you still have your stock inj pump with it?? i have a FASS 95 which i think should be enough with the superchip stacked. id get the 150 if i ever get injectors though.

yeah the superchip was a gift but my friend has them both stacked and works alright. Im kinda wanting to get an 06 in a couple years when i can afford one. My dad has an 03 6 speed and pulls trailers alot better than mine with the moods i have now. He has an edge juice w/attitude. I think id be better off just not putting injectors, turbo and water/meth. i think with my 5 speed with the 3.54s would pull as good as his does with just the chip on tow. I think it would be a better investment to put the $ on a newer truck. But i lovvvee the smoke and my truck alread has the clutch to handle it and exh,intake and ex manifold,air intake FASS 95 which i would need to upgrade to 150. I love my truck but i have a Haterid towards duramaxs and a few small upgrades to the 06 will put as much on the ground as mine hopped up alot.(while still being able to pull a trailer). what do you all think? sorry to change the forum topic.

I learned that the hard way!laugh

And I have a regular comp box. The drag probably holds that fueling solenoid wide open even faster.

Yes I still have the stock IP 45k later. I also run a FASS 95GPH and I have Rv275 injectors and an Anti Defueler and it feeds them just fine. I think when I throw my twins and mach 5's in, I'm going to have to upgrade that, but those are really big injectors.

Yes the 04.5+ takes mods pretty well, but there are lots of supporting mods you will have to do to make it run right. If you already have the clutch, injectors and a decent turbo aren't really all that expensive of mods compaired to a new truck. Thats just My opinion though. I also plan on buying an 06 or newer in a couple years, but I think I'm gonna leave it mostly stock and keep playing with the old truck.

And yes the Drag upgrade is worth the money IMO.

You should buy a 6.7 sean. buy a scanner too, then play the cause and effect game and see what you can do to get more power of it. Your rich you can afford to do stuff like that.
