First run at the track!

Hey all.

We finally got a chance to get the 6.0 over to the track this Friday. I don't think we did too badly for an otherwise completely stock truck.

Truck Specs:
2004 6.0L, Single Cab, Long Bed, 2WD
3.73 Gear, Open Differential, Stock Tires
Stock Injectors, Stock Airbox, Stock Exhaust (including Cat. Conv.)
NO Nitrous or Water Meth

Our best run of the night was a 14.129 @ 97.60 MPH, and that was with only a 2 PSI staged launch and spinning the tires at about 30 MPH. Reaction wasn't great (0.358 sec) and the 60' wasn't great either (2.298 sec). I know if we had a limited slip and some better gripping tires (can you say... slicks!), we'd have most surely been in the mid 13's. In any event, I'm quite please with the results and have a new-found respect for the little 6.0L.

Here's the video, timeslip, and datalog I took of the run as well as the dyno plot of the calibration. Please forgive the video (particularly the focus) as my son Wil did the best he could with the camera.

I know this certainly is NOT the fastest truck out there, but I think it's a pretty good start. Now to just get some traction and reaction.

Enjoy!

That's a real good run on a 2wd, without a heavy boosted launch.

Mind if I ask who's tunes your running?

I'm looking for a track to make a run down myself, seeing slips like these on stock trucks isn't helping.

We're running our own tuning. Get it on the track. You'll certainly have a good time.

It's funny... We have THREE 2WD Regular Cab trucks! I have a 7.3L with Stage 1's, a bone stock 6.0L, and Cody has another 7.3L with Stage 2's. Fortunately for Cody, he has a limited slip. Both my trucks have an open differential so I get the one-tire-fryer action when I launch.

Yeah I have the limited slip too but hope to be doing a 4x4 conversion this summer. Even only with 2wd my trucks still faster than all my friends gassers
