I had a great time at the pull. There was five trucks in my class. Three newer dodges one duramax, and me in my o5 6.0. All the other trucks had some kind of programmer or chip and mine was copletly stock except for air aid intake and muffler delete. I got second place with a [B]FULL PULL OF 302'[B] one of the dodges beat me with a 316'. But I thought that was great for a stock truck.

I don't know if I would go with a boosted launch... you want traction.. traction that is.. don't wanna loose traction.. then if you do well your screwed...

I just used four low put it in drive and just held the brake and picked the rpms up just a little and cutter lose. The new set of firestone destination mt' s help with the traction.
