Breaking the 12s is definitely a task . These trucks are heavy and with all that tq traction is the biggest issue. I think with Drag Radials I can brake boost off the line maybe 10 psi's , if so it should be in the 12.80s .
Only problem is I don't have spare wheels or DR's. lol. MPT is also going with the Bat Mo wheels so they will be hard to catch. The next issue I see will be drivetrain drive shafts and axles.

For those that do not care much for racing, the wheels do improve low end tq.

I already thought of that but don't think it will help. As it is right now I brake boost and see 10 psi's easy. I think a converter will make it worse meaning too much to fast. Might start breaking things out back.

Interesting. I like the numbers a the top end but like most said I would love to see a write up for the install. It could be a nice weekend project it just seems tedious more than difficult.

No torque convertor pete? I think one of us are due for one to see how they respond
From what I'm seeing they won't respond well to our trucks due to the power band, but since nobody's done it yet, it's still a mystery.

Someone could call and ask for Chris at Circle D Specialties...he's a wealth of knowledge.

I believe he was the proverbial horse's mouth in this case.

I'll see what I can find.

Somehow I missed these numbers yesterday. Great job for being fuel only. Love to see what you can do with meth injection or like we discussed, use your E85 stand alone system to spray fuel under boost (replacement for meth). You will see the STFT go negative (-28% max if I remember right) to achieve commanded AFR. This way you can run some additional timing as well. :)
Heck try mixing 50/50 E85 in main tank and spraying stand alone as a supplemental fuel for probably another 60-80HP on top of where you're at. I'm still hoping to see 500WHP on stock turbos this year on straight E85 in wife's truck, just gotta finish up all the fuel stuff we're expecting to have ready this year. :D

The fuel stuff is coming along. We have been in contact with a few companies so we know its in the works, just a matter of time.

I have some secret squirrel stuff I'm working on with a partner, will work well as a stand alone product or in conjunction with the HPFP upgrades coming soon.

I send customers to chris on a regular basis.... Half of my transmissions built use his converter.... But.. If traction is a factor then the converter will just make it worse... Gotta run a slick at that point....

He's not saying much, but I've sorta put the pieces together, and am excited to see it in action....

Holy cow. Maybe I need those wheels after all, I only see 1.8 PSI max brake boosting around 2200rpm

We did that already and that was one of the issue's we discussed . There is also another idea I have about converters with this set up , but Im not going to say anything about it at this time.

Seem's like we all have secrets , I have discussed with Willie and Adrian about a fuel system for the nitrous that will look factory . Willie had the idea in his head and we tossed around some idea's and maybe after Bradenton We will redesign everything . Just didn't have time to get it done now.
