Well, I took my truck to the track Friday night, my best E/T was 14.15 @ 97MPH. I really want to get into the 13's. Current mods are tune, k&n intake, shorty headers (were on the truck when I bought it), borla exhaust, and a 01 Z06 cam, and a 3000 stall.

Right now Im thinking of swapping the shorties for some LT's, and E-fans. I'm not sure what else though. I dont want to swap for a bigger cam.

Any suggestions? TIA

what do you have for gears/locker?
:word: and how was your traction? the last oomph you need might lie in a LSD and some sticky tires

I chirped a little off the line, so traction was okay. Im not sure of the gear ratio, Im trying to find those glovebox codes so I can check

LT headers and sticky tires will probably get you there. Who did the tuning on it? Oh yea Id go with a bigger cam lol, I know u dont want to, but you would not be dissapointed.

I have 3.42s

Brad Emmons tuned it. He has a shop up here in Bossier City, he also installed the cam and stall. One of his cars has been on "Pinks" on the speed channel.

60'-2.1

Slicks will get you at least .3 in the 1/4, up to .5. Assuming you have a locker.

Hell one tenth off your 60' would get you there.

Werd, with a 1.9x 60' he would be seeing 13.8-13.9. Putting some sticky tires and some LT's on there :read:

its smaller, like i said in the last post maybe i just dont know the 5.3s well enough, but in every other GENIII motor the 02 and up cam seem to make more power!
