Solid 12.7 Combo

Ok, here is the skinny. The truck has actually run a [email protected] w/a 1.75 60-ft. time BUT I can't find the time slip so I have to claim the 12.77 until I can get back to the track. The 60-ft was off on the 12.77 pass as well as the track was going away. At any rate here is the combo for now -

05 regular cab
3.92 gears
Summit brand 90/10 front shocks
Front sway bar removed
Clamped rear springs
2.5-in. wedge between rear end and springs for better pinion angle
17 M&H drag radials mounted on stock 17-in rims
2.5 dual exhaust (stock manifolds)
Air Raid CAI
Super-Chips Tuner Set on "91" program using 93 octane fuel
150-shot single fogger nozzle
Results = [email protected]

Upcoming mods -
FJO controller
TCI convertor (2400-rpm)
6.1 cam and springs
16-in. rims and 28x11.50 ET Streets
16-in. factory rims that match the current 17's. They will be widened 1-in. to the inside.

I will continue to test out different parts and post my results. I believe that for the money invested the performance has been spectacular. I also believe that I should be able to get low 12's with the parts listed above and still maintain all my creature comforts and not remove any weight out of the truck. To add to this I weigh 300-lbs so that is just that much more weight the truck is currently toting around. Thank you for your time and I hope this helps.

Definately money well spent and great times, cant wait to see the new Nitrous Outlet plate on the truck also look into the 6.1 pushrods along with your 6.1 stuff

Maybe a dumb question but do you have to use the 6.1 pushrods? Thank you in advance.

No, but they're an easy, inexpensive upgrade that'll let you get more out of the other 6.1 parts. You can opt for the Manley forged rods, too.

BTW, the only way you're going to fit 16" wheels is if you seriously trim/grind the outer edges of the stock brake calipers. You're better off installing a set of strong, lightweight forged 17's.

Might want to check, but I dont know if the 16s will fit the stock calipers without some elbow grease spent on the wheel.

Just FYI

Nice times though.

Thanks fellas. I realize that I am gonna have to do some grinding but it isn't something that I am unacustom to when it comes to fitting wheels. I would love to keep the 17's on there and not grind the calipers but the problem is that no one makes the size tire I am looking for in a 17-in. I want some height on it, at least 28-in. at full growth so my options are pretty limited. I can't wait to try a set on there. It should be pretty interesting. Take care.

also at that tire height you may have to use the superchips to recalibrate your tire size
The use of the 6.1 pushrods have been said to help with the ticking noise heard plus what freeze said
