I'm thinking of taking the truck down the 1/8th mile in a little bit. What kindof damage am I doing to the transmission if I lock out 5th, and T/H it? :gearjamin

Looking for a serious answer, no troller's!

it all really depends on the truck IMO some will be fine, so not much... how many miles are on the truck? I've had friends limp on 90hp tunes then i know people running 220 tunes and haven't limped :cool:
either way its not good for it and its only borrowed time :cool:

its got alot of miles, about 187000mi. I limped it once, about a year ago, 160 tune wot 4-5 shift, but I was dicking around not in t/h or locked. I got excited and forgot to let up, and forgot I was on the 160.

btw, no push button on an 03, LOL.

I appreciate the opinions! I guess Ill get to try it out next time.

Ive been pretty busy with home work, and I didn't make it like I'd hoped. Kinda bummed Downerrr . All my friends probably think I'm avoiding them, I added it up and ive worked about 61 hours since this time last week on homework alone, not to mention sleep and going to class.
