I have never done a dyno pull before nor have i seen it done. How do i do it once i get on the dyno. Surprisingly as it might be to you guys, i have only had this truck since august and its my first diesel truck. Everything i have learned and done to the truck has been thanks to these forums.

So what do i don once its on there. leave it in overdrive? i have a lock up switch, should i use it? what do i do??

ok bill.. if the owner doesnt do it... then this is how we did my old mustang.. so im figuring a diesel will be the same...

get the truck to shift through all the gears slowly.. then when your ready.. just slam the pedel to the floor and bring it up to red line ( or lower if you want to be safe)

i mean.. i did this on my mustang but i redlined the **** out of it to see what it can do.. i dont know if you wnat to do the same with your truck.. i would bring it up to red line though.. just my :2cents

Get it into the highest gear it will hold, lock-up the tc and stand into it until the operator says stop or you hit the readline. The dyno operator ill be able to help you and give advise.

New South Florida Shop..

After a lot of people have been asking me to help them out with their cummins performance last weekend ,it looks like me and a buddy are going to be opening a shop in sw miami dade.

my buddy has years of experience in installations and service on a lot of vehicles and plans on specializing on lift kits, roll cages, and pretty much anything off road

I will be dealing in diesel performance parts and installations, specializing in Cummins. Its a long shot with all the competition out there but hopefully being one of a very few diesel specialty shops in SW dade county we can make it work.

The name of the company will be Home Grown Off Road INC, after the club we created and we hope to be open within a few weeks.

yeah i am pretty new, but i guess im doing something right if i have everyone asking me to do work for them. Besides its me and a buddy, which has a cetificate from some place, i forget where, to do diesel work also. so its not only me, i just know more about the performance end of it than he does. Hes a mechanic and has been doing it for about, well as long as i have know him, years. hes done everything from track cars to huge off road vehicles, to changing the oil on grandma's lincoln.
