1/4 mile perfomance testing

Hey guys
To start on my pickup i have 2006 F350 crew cab single tires in the back. All i have done to it is a afe cold air intake a magnaflow cat back dual exhaust, and a bully dog triple dog gt. I will spin tires from a dead start. I ran a 1/4 mile performance test today the my programmer and ran it on the bully dog's performance tune. I broke traction right of the start my 0-60 was 9.6 seconds, 1/8 mile was 10.8 and my 1/4 was 16.6. I think this is good for the lack of motor tuning i have done i would love some response on my time. Some advice on other things to do for more speed and power, advice on traction would help too. Thanks yall

My advice for more power, speed, and reliability is to take the Bully Dog and throw it in the trash. It will trash your trans. You can continue to use it as a monitor if you want. Get you an SCT tuner and some custom tunes from any tuner, $300 + cost of tunes. If the truck is not studded then you need to do that, you can get bigger tunes for studded trucks, $1500 - $4000 depending on if you do it yourself or not. You can get you FICM tuned and that helps with low end power, $150. Then you can step off into bigger injectors and turbo, around $3000 - $6000. Remember that once you start getting close to 500 RWHP you need to start looking at a built trans. I have a BTS trans, $6000. Junk the factory fuel system and get a good fuel system with a RR, $1200++++ depending on some things. Fuel system will not really help with power but it will keep you from starving your injectors and spending unnecessary cash on replacing injectors all the time. At least a 4" free flowing exhaust, $300 - $600. S&B intake, $350.

Traction - air the tires down to 45 psi unless you are loaded then air them up to recommended specs, $$ free. This is where I run mine at, it helps tremendously with the ride quality and traction. If I air my tires up to the 75 that they are supposed to be at, I can't keep it straight at all if my foot is in it. Also you can install a Detroit TruTrac, you really don't need this until you start getting over about 550 RWHP. You are a long way and a lot of cash from that point.

This is my advice on the 2 things you wanted to know about. Sound is cheap HP is not. You will have the "out of cash" mod at some point. I have about $22k in mods on my truck and am somewhere in the high 400's RWHP maybe, just maybe 500 RWHP, but doubt it.

that 1/4 mile test is bogus on those anyways... how does it calculate how far the 1/4 mile? by your speedometer? the one thats reading 70 while your spinning going 10... bully dogs are junk, you can probably sell it on ebay and buy a used sct with money left over

My stock 04 ccsb 4x4 ran 16.2 at Firebird International Raceway stock in 04 in 105 degree air temps. 14.6 on tuning only, through the cat, stock air intake and muffler. Tuning has improved alot since 04, so you should do much better, high 13s are possible on tuning alone.

Considering I have a 13.898 time slip, run on a 4000ft track, I'll throw this out there.
1. Traction: 4HI, two foot throttle and brake, spool some boost, dump brake/mat throttle hang on! I do 1.8~1.9 60ft times. Yes, that's damn good. My Pro Comp traction bars helped a great deal, too.
2. SRL tune on my SCT was worth 6 tenths over the Brand E POS I had.
3. My True Trac SUCKS! I've spent less $ on burned out posis that worked the same. 2 foot burn outs do two stripes, then turn into right side only, left handed throttle punches sling rear end around, right handed throttle punches are a one tire fire! Detroit Locker or NOTHING.

A 6.0 with factory tuning will run around what your billy goat is telling you.

4000 foot track? That's over 3/4 of a mile long. Why would you run on that? And a 13.898 on a track that long would put you below 10 second quarter miles.

4000 ft ASL, Above Sea Level. Higher altitude means less air, means reduced performance.
