Set your rev limiter to max, 6400 rpm on a Superchips tuner iirc
and start with your shift points for 1-2 around 6100 rpm, 2-3 at 5900.

To save a little weight make sure you only have a quarter tank of fuel, and remove your spare
(every hundred pounds of weight reduction will reduce your ET by a tenth.)

Should be good for low to mid 14's if you get a cool evening.
My best guess, 14.4's if you're new to the track , then you'll be back many times and hundreds of dollars later until you break into the 13's.

you'll bask in the glory of that elusive 13 slip for about a year once you get it, and you will be happy
...but if you're unfortunate like some of us, you'll get a craving for 12's eventually, and that will cost you thousands instead of just hundreds.

I'm sure I will, modding is so addicting and fun especially after this first time at the track like you said. As for the 93 tune, I had it loaded a while ago with 93 octane, yet my truck didn't seem to like it at times actually felt a little slower than 91 tune, so I've just left it on 91 tune,Maybe i had a case of spark knock.
