I mess around with drag racing a bit, my best so far was a 13.31 @ 101 mph with a 1.8 60' and my best mph run was a 13.39 @ 102 mph with a 1.7 60'.

All this was done with all stock engine (except exhaust) And tuning with EFI LIVE Race weight of 6300lbs:) , oh yeah with a manual trans and only 449 hp to boot:cookoo !!!

Keep posted better times are coming just gotta find time to get to the track!

Later
Caleb

I have done a fair amount of racing here with shop trucks. I ran [email protected] in our 03 LB7. We were stacked with injectors and a tranny. We also have run 11.80 @118 in our 02 Dodge. Twins, drag comp, big sticks, NOS slicks. Race weight was just over 7000lbs. This was the first 24V in a truck in the 11s. Ahh so long ago.

There is a story in the new Diesel Power Mag about the guy that put the first duramax in the 10's. Seems he's done quite a bit, and broken quite a bit too. Also he's doing it on the stock turbo charger.

Hey 05 what's gonna be your next trick for 12's?

I was very impressed at IRP. Finally something to get a little closer to competing with Cummins.

Nothing much i plan on using the setup i have now with some tuning changes and hopefully some better shifting!!!!

My biggest problem seem to be launching, i cant keep the truck on the track, it spins, bounces and dances all over the place but i still manage 1.8 60' times.

I got to meet buck at indy this year, super nice guy!! AS well as nldp guys who windowed their engine on there second run Both trucks were running 10's with a little different setups but it seems to me if they can hook better on the line they will really be cookin!!!

With all the new stuff out like the twin cp3s and new chargers coming out we will running with the 20 year old cummins real soon!!!

Pat Mcswain (McRat)just put his dmax Casper @ 11.77 on #2 only with a streetable single turbo , twin cp3's and all stock engine at well over 600hp!!!!!

Sweet!

I wish that EFI Live would work on other platforms. I would have no more troubles getting the truck down the track in a hurry!:peelout

With a stick its kinda hard to build boost at the launch. You are launching in 4wd, I assume. Also, traction or ladder bars might help get rid of some of that hop and bounce. Let some air out of the tires too. I run 40 psi when I am dragging for a weekend (stock rubber). I need better tires! :cookoo

Yeah i launch in 3rd gear 4hi with about 15 psi and 2500rpms and ride the clutch out a few feet!! I clamp the springs but most of my hop is in the front end there is so much weight transfer that the front wheels cant get traction??? Ill try to get a link to a vid on here, hang on!!
