ok so we had the diesel days here at samoa drag strip, put on by the local diesel shop guy.
and i havent installed the stage 2's, turbo, or exhaust brake, and so i wanted to see how it would run with just the intake, exhuats and dp chip
so i was thinking ok it should run like a 16, well thats not it at all 18.6 was the besta t 78 mph, in 4wd.

so now i need to install my stuff then see what it will do, but i'm not sure how much the sticks and turbo will help.

so now i want something else that is going to help me get to the 15's at least so can you guys tell me what i need to get there? maybe some water meth?

or is water meth going to hurt my motor?


thnx guys

it was basically just a disapointing day for me at the track, but nothing broke, so i guess thats a [plus.
i'm sure they were all :pointlaugh at me. :damnit :sofa :squish

so i need some :shrug:

I would say that big oil and a good fuel system would be a big help. I can tell on my truck it pulls really hard right off and then it sets the check engine light for low ICP and just acts like its running out of juce. I hooked a scanner on it the other day and watched the ICP and it never got over 1500 in the high setting when it should have been around 3000. you should have a bigger pump than me anyway but I bet you'll still be starving your injectors in the top end.

The problem is you have a manual trans. You cant do boosted launches so you are kinda SOL. How does the truck run in 2WD? If you are not burning your tires, 2WD might lower your time a bit if you have traction.

yea in 2wd it just roasts the tires until i shift into 3rd. so i through it into 4hi and it hooked up, the kid just beat my *** and he has the same setup as me but is stacking edge chips and i thought mny dp would kill him but he shot by me like he had nos both times we raced.
