What's my 1/4 mile time?

I'm wondering what range I should be in as far as 1/4 mile times. My truck is a supercab short bed f-350 2008 6.4 with mini maxx hd300 tune, s&b intake, 4" down pipe back straight pipe. Should I launch in 4wd? If so what rpm? What trap speed would I be looking at? Obviously I know this varies a lot with driver, location and track prep but I'm just looking for ballpark ranges. I'm located in southern Wisconsin and my truck weighs in at 7300 pounds. Thanks in advance.

They're pretty stout trucks you could worry about a million things but it wont make anything break or not break. If the front end starts hopping to much just let out and launch at a lower boost next time. But if you got stock tires itll probably hop a bit and then hook and go.

I had very similar mods in my 6.0L and it was pretty quick but never took on a track. It would stay close/in-range to my boys stock Ram SRT-10 2 door manual. Few months later I bought a Ram SRT-10 4 door auto with full exhaust and tune. On the best day in cool weather I ran a 12.6 on drag radials. I'm not sure about the 6.4 but I'd be happy around 13's with those mods bc I don't think they are near close the the SRT speed wise..
