Question bout dragging a 6.0?

I would like to run my truck at the drag Sunday since it is the last one of the year. I have an SCT running Spartan tunes with mods in sig, plan on getting Innovative around the first of the year. I am wanting to know since my guages won't be here till next Tuesday, how hot will the Hybird Race tune get in an 1/8th? And would it hurt to make one pass on an 1/8th just to see what my truck will run, even though I have no guages yet?

Do it, Just to be safe, Let your truck idle for 10 mins or so after. Let the turbo cool a bit


You will be fine.

You'll be fine like Bryan said, a couple seconds of high EGT's aren't going to hurt, but make sure you control the tree so that way your not sitting there spooled up, on the converter, letting you EGT's climb.....thats the only problem I see with it. And I also second the letting it cool down after each run before you shut her off

You should be fine in the 1/8. I agree with the others, let your truck cool down and not sitting there on the line too long. Good luck on the strip. Be sure and let us know how you do.

Well i drove my truck up a hill for 15 miles at 40 MPH and I was on the floor stock at full load 3000RPM, never got any heat problem, If you ruin you truck in 1/8 Miles you surely have the wrong tuner.
