dually for truck pulls

I have a 2000 dually and looking into getting more power in the motor, I am thinking I would like to start sled and or truck pulls with it since it is not my DD but just a toy at this time. what would I need to do to start pulling, the motor and wheels??

I would be concerned about the clutch, if it's stock... ditch the Hypertec for custom tunes, I recomend that one way or the other. I personally like DP Tuner (I have them in both my trucks, and will get one for the Excursion when I can talk the wife into it), but others think highly of TS style 6 pos chips with tunes buy Tony Wildman, Beans, PHP, and more... do some research, make some phone calls, and go with the one who you are most comforable with. DP's are nice, you arn't limited to just 6 tunes.

As for tires, it's going to depend on the track, an agressive all-terrain or closely-spaced tread pattern mud terrain radial seems popular at the local county fair where I work at the track for the truck pulls... so no personal experiance, but I know what I see alot of.

you have to look at the rules for what class your pulling in. They have turbo size regulations.. 38r looks pretty stock though....

I don't know a lot out pulling rules, but around here you can't pull with a DRW. Not sure if they will let you to just pull one wheel off.

With the turbo, depending on rules, I would lean towards the s366 because it uses a standard mount. (T4). The h2e has a few different turbos that work with it, just not as many.

You do realize that to be competitive, you're going to need an easy $25,000+, right?


PontiacRoss has a 750+ HP 7.3 that he pulls with. If you want to pull and do good, you'll want to check out his set-up... and open up your wallet.

thanks, I was thinking of just doing it for fun. I am not looking into the 750+ pulls. just over stock or so.

and I will be looking into the area rules for summer fair truck pulls.
My stock clutch will not be good?

You can have a lot of fun and be somewhat competitive at the work stock level. At least if they enforce the rules that is.

Clutch clutch clutch! Can't stress that enough. I blew my stock one into about 50 pieces when pulling with stock tuning.

WOW!! I did not think that would happen.. I will have to look into it. What should I get and where?
Also, just talked to Irate Diesel and I am now thinking s366 turbo kit and de-tuned Hybrid 250... injectors so if I want more power later the turbo and sticks are there. what do you think??
