I don't know what you should be running but maybe that 4000 pound bumper is slowing your truck down lol.

I think mine should be a little faster than that if you are running the same size tires. You said that you are running a 100 horse power chip but I believe that my loney tunes is over 175 horse power if I remember. My tires def slowed my down. My truck is heavy enough; no amount of weight reduction is really gonna matter to much unless I run my truck with no cab just frame and a seat lol. I never have run my truck becasue I am waiting to buy guages first. not worth blowing my truck up just yet lol

injectors, turbo, fass, more toys normally gets you more smoke

as far as more stuff for u to nab ... intake and gauges. let her breath and be able to monitor the ride.

if your looking to just lay down coal .... upgrade anything involving fuel and wipe out your exhaust...
as far as 6.0's go i dunno stock power numbers and times from a holein the ground but as far as making loads of smoke .... i feel as though i'm already an investor in OPEC and until i can run farm diesel, run on hopes n dreams, or get sponsored .... i'll try and keep my fuel in my tank (untill a rat nasty rice burner looks at me crossways... then its only fair to give them a fresh soot primer)
