i have probably 230miles on the tune so i would guess that it's broken in, i will go back to the track this week and see if putting more miles on it helps any. but damn, i thought 3.90 gears, posi, and a tune would at least get me a 10.50 or so. but i dunno.

mine is a SC, i think it weighs 4100 or so. but i can tell by my times that i have wasted alot of money. i talked to Allen and he said that the TQ is kicking in more due to the gears, but i will go to the track on weds. and see if putting more miles on it helps.i almost beat a modded HEMI but after half track he got me by 2 car lenths. i will probably have Allen make me another tune here in about a week or 2. Black Chrome, i have headers, exhaust, modded intake, Tune, 3.90 gears, Eaton Posi, and still only gained a fuckin 2 tenths and 2.1/2 mph. if this heap don't do any better than this im gonna put i damn procharger on it and say quits.

i put in my 4.10's and eaton and then put on the 20's and my times didnt change, they stayed at 16.4... i figured i would have at least gained a little...

There is still something up, if black chrome is running the same 1/8th times without a tune or the lower gears then you need to figure out whats goin on with your rig cody

well, i know the heat and humidity are bad right now in Texas but that is only a tenth or 2 maybe so i would still say my shit is slow. but then again, my buddy was watching me race and he swore that i was spinning alittle for the first 60", so i have no damn idea whats up with my truck. maybe its traction, but i dowt it. :imo

well, i went to the track again last night hopeing for a better time and sure enough i got it. my fastest prevoius run was a [email protected] and last night i got a [email protected] so it picked up 2.5 tenths and gained 1mph, but the weather was very nice, probably 15 degrees cooler but i still think the truck picked up alittle on its own. so i guess putting more miles on the tune helped. the truck is still slow :imo turbo will be going on on about 3-4 months hopefully :head:
