put truck in D stand on the brake pedal and push down on the go pedal to build the boost and rpms when the light green "dump" the brake and stomp the go juice

Hmmmm? Just going to the store for groceries is bad for our transmissions when they are stock. Not sure if a boosted launch every now and then would be a problem. Friend that is pretty sucessful on the strip with his 7.3 pushes it to about 8 lbs. of boost during his launches.

I launch mine at about 1200RPM on the brake. I launches a lot harder and spools up quicker. I'm sure 1200 for a few seconds isn't going to toast anything given the looseness of the convertor.
