mods by end of next week.

sct excaliber2 (installed performance setting),removed wga line, intake, 4" exhaust, mapfooler, pyro gauge. Right now I am running about a 16 sec pass im guessing. maybe a little better, with those mods could i possibly be in the 14s? also after those mods i am going to send my programmer to a tuner to have them burn me a tune. im looking for high 13s atleast(if i can get better that would be great)

14's in a 7.3 is gonna be tough with just tunes, intake, & exhaust...

you might also look at putting a Boost guage like all the other guys in your other thread told you or you're likely to damage your turbo with that waste gate unplugged.

I dont know about max weight, but I would tend to think EGTS would me more of a concern since they will climb a lot faster in the performance mode thanin tow mode. JMO.
