I was hoping for better, but expected less! Heres my slips:

run # 1
60' 2.267
330' 6.356
1/8 9.721
MPH 73.09
1000' 12.632
1/4 15.098
MPH 91.32

After this run I knew it had a 14 in it. My sixty foot sucked and I shifted early.

run #2
60' 2.173
330' 6.238
1/8 9.585
MPH 73.30
1000' 12.486
1/4 14.945
MPH 91.68

I was jumping for joy with the 14, I spun a little, but had no hop, and the shifts felt really good.

run #3
60' 2.198
330' 6.269
1/8 9.636
MPH 72.77
1000' 12.558
1/4 15.039
MPH 90.76

Shifted way too late this time, so I let the tranny do the work next run.

run #4
60' 2.161
330' 6.203
1/8 9.553
MPH 72.89
1000' 12.478
1/4 14.966
MPH 90.48

I just stuck it in drive and went, I launched at a little over 1000 and it stuck pretty good. I was impressed with the time but not the mph, I think it shifts out of 2nd too early.

run #5
60' 2.200
330' 6.274
1/8 9.643
MPH 72.72
1000' 12.571
1/4 15.057
MPH 90.65

I put it in drive and launched, had some bad hop. When I got into second i put the shifter in 2nd and took it a little higher than stock shiftpoints, but it didn't help.


All in all I am pretty satisfied. The truck is a pretty stock 132,800 mile longblock truck. All I have is pullies, a chip, a k&n, and stock exhaust with no mufflers. I had an interesting race with a '99 GT also, I actually pulled on him in first(plus I beat him off the line), got about 1.5 cars ahead, he barely inched on me in second, then when I hit third he flew past me to a 14.5 at 95. By next time I get out there I should have exhaust and some 1.7 roller rockers and maybe electric fans. That should improve the times by a good bit I think. What do you guys think about my times?

Thats pretty good for a basically stock high mileage truck.A looser torque converter would do wonders for your et and 60fts.
Yeah, i'd like to get something a little better than stock, but not too serious. I like the driveability the way it is now with the stock 1800 rpm converter. I wouldn't mind jumping up to a little over 2000 but nothing higher than that just yet.
