What is it gonna take to.....

Get my truck to at least a 15 sec. truck? I tried to put a programmer on my truck and it wouldn't download..(superchips flashpaq) It said tune allready installed. Well I ran a 18.8 1/4 on my truck this weekend, And I embarrassed my self in front of many people.

So please tell me anything I can do I don't care if it's a DIY type deal. Im tired of having the slowest damn truck anywhere I go.

Also when im boosting at the light my RPM's won't go over 1500.

Thanks for your help. John

Forgot to add I have limited $$$$$

I think just an SCT with a good tune will put you under 15.

4"/5" Magnaflow stainless turbo back
4" RCD lift over 325/65R18 Nitto Terra Grapplers

Re: What is it gonna take to.....

yup as 06powerstroke said I had a few sub 15second passes with my truck and this was basically fully loaded street trim with a 7/8th full fuel tank, 200+lbs in a crossover toolbox plus another 150 or so lbs in stereo and a passenger, PLUS taller/wider tires.

an SCT with a race file or even a good street file should put your right there, most guys I see running a bit faster, in the low 14's. Jesse (Redfish) has ran [email protected] and I am pretty sure he is just a tuner/exhaust, crew cab short bed with stock tires, I think he was doing some strapping of the front axle and some other tweaks though, but you should easily be able to get sub 15's in full street trim.

The not being able to get over 1500rpm sounds like just the stock tuning. When mine was stock I remember attempting some breakstands and it would do the same, had both pedals to the floor and it would go to about 1500 and no boost and then with some modulating of the brake pedal I could get the boost to come up and the rpm's to go up too, but was a kinda long process just to get the tires spinning

4" RCD lift, a bunch of stereo gear and a computer
