Cool Lets talk Truck pulls

Ok you guys and girls have helped me in lots of ways but in my last post the pulling part kinda didn't help me as much as i hoped but all that was said is very good.. thank you all again in advance, i have Never done this and want my first to be good.

How many pulls do you get for your money?
Is there another thing i can do before Sunday to boost power with out spending a grand? I will do Exhaust very soon. I'm thinking 4inch turbo back with a stock turned on its side running with the step bars to come out just before the tire.
What kind of hitch do i need and or will they supply one to use?
looney tone djs is a must i believe and 4L is the way to go!?
what abought changing filters day before?
Opening the air box cover up?

Advise please, now i have the sct commin i want to know what to do next for power and lots of it.

change your filters if you want and its been a while. Big tunes draw down fuel pressure quick. for a hitch, I have used a 6" drop hitch turned upside down with a horizontal clevis thru it. You can get them at any farm/fleet store. You want your hitch to be as close to 26" off the ground as possible without going over that. If you haven't done the zoodad mod yet it would be a good idea. I don't know what you mean by opening the air box cover unless you have an aftermarket air system. But whatever you do don't bypass your air filter, ever.

Cutting a hole in your fiberglass radiator support just in front of your air intake pickup tube. Unscrew the top 4 bolts (8mm I think) of your front grille, use a screw driver to pop the 5 clips holding the bottom in, look to see where your air intake pretty much deadheads right behind the support. Use a drill to make a pilot hole and then a rotozip or dremel tool to cut out a hole to allow fresh outside air in to your motor. Took me 20 minutes to do mine start to finish, and it was a free mod. I don't know if it will really give you anymore power but it makes sense to do.
