Track Day Yesterday...

So i took the truck out to the track yesterday and I wasnt too happy with the results. It might be because of the 37's that I am running, but the best time that i could manage was a 15.3 at 87 mph with a 2.1 60'. I thought that they are supposed to be around 1.8's. I am running Eric's Extreme Race.

While running i noticed that I was at about 1500 degrees on the egt and i was only boosting at about 25psi.

Does this all sound right?

boost seems low. but your 60' isnt based upon what others do, its how you drive. eric has nothin to do with that or any tuner for that matter.

if you were cutting 1.8 60 fts then yeah your time would be better. 15.3 is about right for your mods and your extreme race, you got a heavy truck. and 37s.

your egts are high but if your only doing short burst you will be ok.

ive noticed my buddy's Extcab short bed picks up way faster than my setup (identical mods). CC LB and I bet he gets better mileage too. Price you pay for a BIG truck but I would't trade it for another

It seems like elevation has something to do with it. I know that a turbo charged engine isn't suppose to be effected by this, but I've seen a few times on this site and they seem to be faster at lower elevations. EGT's are also lower at sea level. Anybody else see this trend?

I think it is the intercooler that is more effective at lower elevations.
