what kinda 1/4 mile times you guys running with the 7.3's and what mods do you have to make it happen!


Reason behind this is I have a friend with a Dodge dually that smacked down a 15.16 and I was wondering how the 7.3's will compare.. I see us drag racing soon I just wish the 6 speed had a closer shift pattern...lol :handgrab:

Is his an automatic? Most of the 7.3's will be in the 15's, but if you have a manual you're gonna have to work pretty hard to get it to run a high to mid 15. What mods do you have now?

that's gonna be a tough one having a manual. I have a manual in mine. I can toast a lot out there from a roll, but from a stop I get slaughtered by automatics. It takes me a bit but I can catch up eventually.

Run him from a rolling start and get a real Tuner you'll be right there with him.

well it will be at a track if it happens.. we may play a little on the highway but we will get er done at the strip.. its his tow vehical and this is my tow vehical . we both drag race and we are gunna go to a test and tune and near the end of the day after we are done tunning our drag vehicals we will unhook the trailers and let it happen with the tow rigs..


I was playing around on the street today and if I let the clutch up in 2nd @1400 rpm from a dead stop the tires just go up in smoke, first gear is useless I can stab it ideling and it blows the tires into balls of smoke too... this is gunna suck... he has alot more traction being a dually.. maybe i should get some dually rims and tires for the back...


and remember Maintain when I wanna go fast I have my 79... the superduty is the tow vehical... I dont need more tuner

Yeah, being a 2wd srw AND a manual you have a massive disadvantage. Better hope someone has some 8-lug slicks!
