Get some gauges. I think if you can launch with it around 1800-2000 rpms, you should be around 10-12psi.

Do the 4wd launch.. it will make a huge difference.

Before I had guages, I would try to launch at around 1800 rpms... as that is where it felt like the the torque converter started to flash, and where the truck seemed to start to make boost. The biggest thing about doing it this way, is you eliminate lag, and get to take off, and build boost immediately.

6.0's take a while to build boost. A good 5 sec. As for the one tire fire there's a solution to that. Just do a little burnout until one tire spins then stop the burnout and then restart it and both tires will spin. This happens to me all the time. This is how my burnouts usually are.
