4500 rpm's and I lifted! Thanks Jody

Spent some time with Jody today. Most of you know the problems I've been having with my truck popping trying to free rev on the line and pulling down the track. Today Jody got the chance to experience it first hand. It would pop and buck so hard it would set a SES lamp for the cam sensor at 3600. Well after a lot of time he figured it out. When the tach went to 4500 on the street we both were like, did that just happen. It got even better. With a lot more pw than anyone said was possible we made another pass on the back country road and I wussed out at 4200 and lifted.

The new equipment Jody has is sweet. He logged the runs as we went and changed the tuning without removing the chip. He said we never would have found it without live tuning.

After the three hour trip to Dillsburg and four hours of tuning I went another hour south and hooked to the sled at McConnellsburg. On the line it free reved to 4k with no issues at all. The track was pretty tight, at least three in hot diesel busted drive line parts. It pulled 34-3500 down the track with not even a hit of a pop. Corey said it was cleaning up the fuel to a grey haze. With the amount of fuel I have the 34-35 is probably all I'll get on a tight track. I hooked 10th out of 20 trucks and held first till the last two trucks. Mat Cooper in a DMax took first and a Dodge that hooked first, dropped and came back last beat me. The turn out and amount of good competition surprised me to say the least. I was a very good pull.

Jody I'm sure you can tell I'm happy.

Thank You!

Kevin
