Question before I go to the truck pulls?

Goin to pull my truck for the first time in chaffee, ny. I was wondering if it is safe to use the 275hp tune without water/meth or should I play it safe and run the 250. Also my truck is a automatic so what gear should I run in? And what tire pressure should I run. Thanks guys. Any info would be great

275 worked great for me...put it in D and ease out till it starts moving then mash it and stop when they wave the flag.

4low works good to. With 373 gears hold it in 3rd 4 low. 410's you can hit drive.

You want the biggest tune you got. The pull will only run 10-15sec so your motor will be fine.
