Does anyone know where I can dyno my truck? I live in the Tyler Texas area but Im down around houston sometimes. I have been waiting for a dyno day but I dont think one is ever goin to come. Also, I would like to know with whats in my sig, how much horse power I should put down. I know it can be different with every truck but I would still like to know a round about number. My brother in law has an 08 6.4 ford and he is always talking smack that he has more horsepower than me and all he has is the spartan 275 tune and air intake. I just would like to know if i have more than him. I love talkin smack to the in laws.:hehe:

But any input would be greatly appreciated.

You dont have more than him. He is probably around 500 and your around 430. But just tell him that he needs to wastegate his coolant bottle and that should piss him off.

id say throw some 90hp nozzles, fuel system, and a lock up switch.... you will rock his world then eventually a turbo and a arson cp3 kit then it wont even be fair!

Have you seen this? It is only about an 1.5 hrs from you or so, and there will be a ton of guys out there! I am going to try and make it also.

There will also be another one probably at AllStar(longview) in October again. If you go to either of these events it will be a lot cheaper than to go by yourself.

As far as you having more HP than him; you don't. You will need nozzles, cp3, and a turbo to do that.

We went to the track a couple weeks ago and out of 4 races i beat him 3 times. And
I think the reason he beat me is cause i spun and he boost launched in 4 wheel drive. I didnt boost launch once. But now that I have the smarty I thik I should be able to completely whoop the hell out of him. He has been so pisssed since I put the smarty on and hasnt been wanting to race me. He rode with me and now hes just scared. He keeps saying that he is gonna dump a bunch of money in his to make it faster than mine but in the next couple months im gonna get 90s, mp8, and a FASS. hopefully a cp3 soon after.

What did u have before the smarty? he should be way faster... and dont buy a whole cp3 just buy an arson IIor III kit, like 350 brand new for the III i believe and the installs very simple

Maybe...those 6.4 runs really strong.
Stock no, they suck just like all the other Powerjokes. With that 275hp tune on it yes they are strong as hell. There tranny is stronger than ours, and the spool up is faster with the VGT turbo. Of course they don't have the low end grunt that our trucks have. There are pro's and con's of each truck and just like JD said they run strong as hell with just a simple tune.

As for racing, thats hard to believe. I would have to see it for myself. I have never seen a 6.4 with that tune do a boosted launch and a Cummins do a non boosted launch with a stockish truck like yours and win. Post a video next time for us bud. :thumbsup:

Your times about right but his is unbelieveably slow with the spartan he should be mid 13s, unless its a dually maybe? or a stick if they even come in manuals?

Its a 1 ton longbed SRW 4x4 with a leveling kit and 20s with 35" tires. Mine is a 4x4 also but im kind of scared to launch in 4 wheel drive. I havent ran on the track yet with my smarty but im hopin to be closer to 14 and maybe get into the 13s. I was pretty impressed with the 14.7 with a bully dog, but i should definitely be able to do faster with a smarty.

Can you feel any difference in the seat of ur pants with a Arson II or III? Also, how much different are 50 horse injectors vs. 90 horse? Im tryin to decide what to get and I want the best for my money. I want to be able to whoop the hell out of him.
