New to the .org, few questions!

Hey all,

Been lurking since before I bought my 6.0 a few months ago and it's time for me to get in on the action. My truck config. is in my sig. I have Innovative's Extreme X tune for the track and Vivian's Looney Wild for dd use. I took my truck down to the track about a month and a half ago on the Extreme X tune and went 14.5 at 95mph with a 2.35 60' time. Looking for some better info as far as a realistic quarter mile time with a good launch and maybe a decent rwhp estimate too.

Truck is on stock injectors and turbo (for now )
Looking to go either MTW Stage 1 or Hybrid (can't decide which!) and Warren 155/30's when the time is right.

I will say the 2.35 60' time is what killed your quarter mile time. Was you launching in 4wd? Did you do a boosted launch or did you just stab it when the light turned green? With a good boosted launch I would think you would be in the 14 flat or high 13 range.

As far which turbo, I can say that I run the Hybrid with 155/30's and its VERY strong. I haven't had it back to the track since the turbo or on a dyno but if you go with 155's then my vote is for the Hybrid.

Yeah, I launched in 4hi with a boosted launch around 12 psi. Smoked all four tires off the line the first two tries so I dialed it back a little for the 14.5 run. Seemed pretty slow though. I talked to Eric before I got my tune and he told me with my trucks configuration I should see mid to upper 13's. I know a 60' can hurt your time. A whole seconds worth of time is a lot though.

My CCSB is running 14.5... I would think your truck should be in the range of low 14's...

It is just practice
Better traction! (What tires and how much tread do you have)

Ah yes I think tires definitely aren't helping. They're dunlop fierce attitude m/T's. They have less than 5k miles, so plenty of tread, but they're 325/65/18. I have the stock wheels and tires also, and the next time I get around to the track I'll swap them on. I had just bought my truck and took it down on my way home from work pretty much.

When I made my 14.5/14.6 passes, I was running Toyo M/T 35x12.5x18 with aftermarket wheels... But, I did not lose traction. I think maybe your tires are hard so it doesn't "grab" as much!?

Toyo's are known for their soft tread which is good for traction (but a bad thing cuz they wear fast)

Definitely a good possibility. They're hard as rocks...needless to say I am not too impressed with the tire choice by the previous owner. I'll be going with toyo's when its my turn...I decided that after about a week on my current tires

Nope. I'd prefer an a/t. The truck had m/t on it.

What psi did you run in your tires. Airing them down to around 30 psi will really help get better traction. M/Ts do not get the best traction on the strip.
