1/4 mile Estimate on my truck set up?

Wondering what kind of numbers my truck would likely dyno with the 2 mods I have. 4" magnaflow turbo back; kitty ran off. also have done Zoodad mod. Auto trans, 3.73LSD rear end. Bone stock other than those 2 mods. I think my next mod is going to be a programmer, but i'm worried about warranty issues. I guess bottom line is I'm wondering how much power a exhaust gives you on a stock truck...

I don't think it is very much. A stock 6.0 should dyno about 260-270 to the wheels

You should be somewhere around 16.50 seconds with the 20" wheels. You will see low 14s with some good SCT tuning. The exhaust doesn't really help a stock truck enough to quantify.

Ah ha. I see. so it really only helps set the stage for the programmers. People here really seem to like the SCT's. I've been eyeing the Hypertech myself. I'm not looking to get every HP possible.

The aftermarket exhaust (aside from sounding better) doesn't add much in terms of HP until you tune it and start pumping out the bigger HP. Then it makes a real difference helping control the EGTs. The Zoodad will of course help get more air in, but once again, until it is tuned...the real gains won't been see in the 1/4. SCT it, then you'll be scooting down the 1/4!!!!

You got it!

Umm, yes ..look at my 1/4 times in my sig below, zoodad, intake, exhaust, gauges (of course) and an Innovative Diesel tuned SCT.

I was mid 14s on the Xtreme Street, and hit the best on the Xtreme Race.

You'll get more from your tint than the exhaust

honest- I'm with Echo. The truck might gain 5-10hp on the dyno from it. Only a tenth or two off a stock time, so about low 16s in 4wd with a good launch. Get hooked up with Eric @ Innovative Diesel and he'll get that truck cookin

Sounds good guys. Just wanted to clearify/double check this stuff. I'll either go SCT or Hypertech. i'm only in the beginning phase of researching programmers.

99% of the people on this site, and probably 95% of 6.0 owners that have the SCT (and most have had other chips first) will definitly recommend the SCT. It is the prefered way to go.

Just thought I'd share that.

A 4" exhaust and no Kitty will gain 12 HP... A magazine ran an article doing some testing a while back. With the kitty it only gained 10HP.
