Not really a kill, but first test drive after FTVB
So I Put a FTVB in my truck, and my truck used to shift at 3900 (yeah, i know, wtf its not a diesel) and with 3.55s it killed it in 3-4th gear from a roll, but from a stop it'd roar through 1-2-3, well I put he ftvb in, and I pull out in front of the house, rolling it shifts to 2nd and i feel the familiar slam my brothers truck has, and I put it to the floor, the motor screams open, the torque roaring and it drops back to first, and to my suprise it held 1st till 4400 rpm, and shifted at 43mph, boooom, wahhhhhhh through 2nd boom 3rd at 73mph, and the speedo swung right down and laid on the peg, then it slammed into 4th, the door was shaking, the bfg's making all sorts of noise, tearing down the road, it made a HUGE difference, the truck from a roll before used to not downshift and it kind of sucked with 3.55s, so after I let off and turned around I put it on the floor at lke 65 and it dropped two gears and completely suprised me when the speedo needle just whizzed right down and laid on the odometer peg, definitly a awesome mod. Bad news is, I used almost 1/4 tank of gas in 8 miles :shrug:
