superchips allows you to take elapsed time trials if you want to try them out.

I like it alot, i like how it seals up against the bottom of the hood so it only sucks in cooler air fr outside instead of all the engine heat. I paired it with my tb at the same time

4dr or 2dr?
4wd or 2wd?
20's or 17" wheels?

I've got 3.55's in my 10' RCSB 4x4,
with intake/exhaust/93 tune I got: 14.4's - 14.5's on stock 20's/33" rubber
Swapped on a set of 4 - 28" DR's on light weight aluminum 17's and got into the 13's.

But that's at 2500' DA, according to Dragtimes...
my best run 13.89/98.5 after DA corrections is 13.4/102mph

Can you get 93 octane gas? If so, load up the 93 tune
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.
