    I'm competeing in a truck/tractor pull tomorrow and was wondering if there was anything i could do with maybe $50 or less to the engine to get some extra power before tomorrow? I already have straight pipes.
    Thanks,
    Red

    Get the biggest NOS sticker you can find...that should make you unbeatable for under $50. If you have any money left over you could strap a picnic table to the topper for the 'wing' effect...nobody would come close to beating you then, I bet that would be good for almost 350 hp!!

    good news!! i didn't break anything!

    i did come in dead last though and here's why
    no front shaft
    3.73s
    q-jet
    i was the only 2wd (temp)
    only two other gas trucks
    all others duramax, PSD, or 5.9cummins


    the guy that chained me up 'guaranteed' it wouldn't budge, and almost shat himself when i pulled a weak 107.98

    but hey- if you don't think that things got torque, how about this, my front tires lifted a good 8-10" off the ground for about 40 foot /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    note- i was pulling a 76,800lbs sled

    If your front wheels pulled 8-10" off the ground you didn't need that front shaft anyways/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    well it was only the first 40 feet and then they came down and i didn't have the traction to pull it much farther, even had the mickey's down around 8-9psi and still spum like crazy. lotta fun though, ya'll should try at the next tractor pull you have around you

    no video

    winner was a brand new, totally stock 6.6 duramax 3500 dually /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
