06 f250 1/4 mile runs

truck in sig... 06 extended cab short box. Two people in the truck totaling 400lbs, plus toolbox with 100lbs of misc. crap. Tuned by Innovative Diesel, running Xtreme street for both of these runs. This was all done using a Passport dash mounted unit. Pretty neat. The numbers seem to be damn close to what Innovative told me to expect. It also calculated rear wheel horse to be 423. Thanks.

How accurate are these dash monitors? Just curious because the closes track is 2 hours from me and this might be a consideration to help keep track of the performance of my upcoming mods. Also how much and who carries these?

I'm hopefully going to have before and after Dynojet numbers to help compare. Also what kind of rwhp would one need to hit high 12's in a 7500 pound truck?

That seems pretty accurate from what I have seen cc trucks run in the 1/4. And to hit high 12's with a 7500 truck im guesstimating about 475-500 hp range

Mine is extended cab just to verify. I'm not 100% sure on the accuracy, but we ran my truck, and my buddies 97 ranger and both were really close for HP readings, which were the one thing I thought wouldn't be accurate. For 1/4 mile times and 0-60 they are very accurate. Car & Driver uses one of these (a much higher end model) for their testing. My buddy picked this one up with the extra data cable used on ebay for $30, great investment if you ask me. One could really play around with their programmer/tuner to really get the max out of it using this device.

Also to get into the 12's please read this thread...

I broke into the 12s!!

Haha!! That's me!

Nice numbers...sounds about right for your mods/weight. I'd dump your passenger and the tools and run it again for comparsion. Its only a 1/4 mi walk for 'em!

yes that is you! hahah, just read the thread and thought of it when I read this question.


Yeah my passenger can jsut stand there, I can come back and pick him up haha. I would be curious to see with it unloaded and stock rubber though. I planning on doing a local dyno day in july, so I can verify or discredit these numbers.

I saw the tire size, didn't even catch that they're Super Swampers!

Definitely try something as close to stock as you can. You should see slight improvement.
