I've been looking at this one...

http://bullysperformance.com/mild-st...45rfe-172.html

The hope being more power at take off. The truck is a 4x4 daily driver that I'm wanting to keep for years to come. It absolutely drives me nuts that I can't even spin my tires at a standstill. Floor it, wait a few seconds, then the truck comes to life.

Is this the best mod to do now? I'm fully open to any other suggestions to get to my power band quicker.

Don't want to blow my transmission or anything in doing so either.

Would say that is do to the program and the delay of opening your throttle shaft. Factory has a delay in it, if your programer doesn't change it you may be able to go into adjustments and change it there. If you can't then you may need to get a different programer or someone to show you how to do a burnout!

....a burnout without having to power brake the truck but that is not the overall goal, just a fun side effect.

If you're just looking to punch it and smoke the tires for 20-40+ feet, yes you are going to need: 2WD truck, converter, gears (4:56), maybe a camshaft or some other power adder, and a programer to remove the delay in the throttle body opening and 2,000 lbs diet would help too!

Or you could always make a water sprayer infront of the rear tires, get the ground and tire a little wet and you have your handicap smoke show! Guys used to mount windshield wiper pumps and tanks in the trunks of cars back in the day to help get the tires spinnin and get the smome show going... a lot cheaper then all the other add ons you'd have to do to get kinda the same results!

Nope, you only need a Diablo Tuner set for 100% ESP Disable and good TC

My 5200lb 4x4 with shitty 3.55's and an Open rear diff can easily turn over BOTH my Heavy rear 305/50R20 Terra Grappler's (almost 100lbs per corner)

My Trinity Screen:



pic's below are from over two years ago (May 2011) The only mods at the time ...intake,exhaust, tuner.






...and yes, those are my Donut marks too




That was before my Torque Converter swap, so now I can do the same with ESP still turned on
My Street Edge 2800 stalls at 3k and I only need to use half throttle to light em up now.
At the track I run 28" DR's on all four corners and AWD (4-Auto) for traction and easily pulls 1.8's 60 footers.
Launches like it's shot out of a cannon flashing it from idle.

There you go... I guess turn off the EPS...I don't have that on my 05, hope it works.

Black HEMI, I have a DS programmer and have never seen that option. I just tried searching for it too and couldn't find it. How exactly do u get to that screen. Do u know if it is still an option for the 2012?
