Talking Update on my truck

I ran my truck in a diesel drag race this weekend. Ended up with runner up. Any way best run was 13.107 @ 101.2 best run so far. Truck ran great and never had any problems.

here is a video of that run.

Truck is really smoky down the track. Im thinking about spraying it. What are yall's opinions on the matter? dual stage, single stage, progressive controller?

Also talked to Tyler Dirty quite a bit and raced his truck that is my trucks twin (as far as paint and cab configuration) beat him pretty bad.... he is running a procharger feeding a 70mm with 225s he wasn't happy.... but he also was having problems.... needless to say I was shocked

The one that I took with the mirror is misleading. Its only half the smoke (dual exhaust) and I wasnt completely on it all the way I dont think. Its not that smokey on the street. I never really go WOT for anything, even passing cars.

Do you really want to get a new turbo system? I know that the $$ will be similar but what about removing restrictions with the air flow. Like dougs intake, modify or get a new tune

Im thinking about a procharger.... just ideas. Looked at a procharger set up this weekend and I loved the look of it. Im thinking about just nitrous right now. Doug's intake would be great just wondering about the wait. Might make a redneck knockoff

Yea if you know how to weld aluminum it will not be a real challenge

Or make it out of steel
