Keep at it man, you may be able to get the the 13's without boost or spray. I'm amazed at how much faster your truck is than mine with nearly the same mods lol. I know it's not an even playing field but still, I ran a 16.1 friday...

I guess you just got a "good one" lol.

Fred, I don't believe he actually has that converter installed anymore, he had an issue with it where the clutch wouldn't lock. I think he is running the stock converter for now.

I hearya..funny thing is for me, i run the stock verter as well and have been running my pb's with it... I use to run a 2800 edge and it pulled like a mutha from the gitgo (my 60's were way better back then) but someone told me that our hemis liked the 'looseness' of the stock verter and my et's prove it...

^I don't know a lot about converters but I think the higher the stall rpm the less power you make at higher rpm's, so that makes sense...

Haha ok lets see If I can hit all your ?'s.
Yes I have considered going with a DRY system directed through the intake. Havent really pushed on the idea quite yet but very soon yes. Also I'm not sure how much the lower tstat will effect the performance but I am going to install one 180tstat this weekend regardless.
For the converter yes I did have trouble with the first aftermarket TC so I threw back in my stock one.
My 60 ft time was a 1.9. But I was at 32-34 psi with my radials and I was getting a little spin at the launch. So for sure when I go down to 20-25 psi they will grab better. I should be @ 1.6 1.7 60 ft time. At least that is what I'm shooting for. The 1/8 time I don't remember id have to look at ticket.

Next will be the tstat and underdrive pulley (thanks to my buddy snrusnak for he is going to try them on his truck before I install mine, he's been with me since my TC trouble back 3 or so months ago. Been great help)

Geeze my 60ft was 2.5 seconds lol.

The 180 tstat has been fine since I put it in and got the air out of the cooling system. The coolant temp hangs around 190. If your moving and it's cool out it'll stay around 188, maybe 186. If your sitting and it's hot out it'll keep climbing until the fan kicks on (I have mine set at 197), then slowly drops and hangs around 194 with the fan on. Then when you get moving again it goes back down around 190. We'll see how it does during summer heat, but I don't anticipate any issues.

I'm ordering the underdrive pulley today, gotta call the guy. In the upcoming weeks I'll let you know if it fits.

BTW, my goal was to get my truck to run a 14.99 or faster, and you did that without even really trying.....damn you...
