Default The beast is waking up!

When I test drove my truck I thought WOW this thing has some serious power! I bought a little truck with a big engine for a reason so yesterday I turned the traction control off and nailed the throttle from a stand still.....I was very surprised to hear it just rev through 1st and 2nd as it went into a hard fishtail! It has 1,400 miles on it and I'm starting to feel a difference in power, have you guys/girls noticed the same with your trucks?

The only other new truck I have owned (5.3 Chevy) didn't do this, thats why I'm asking.

Mine seems a little more spry since it went over 1000 miles. Wouldn't surprise me.

I only hear a couple chirps when nailing the pedal, unless im on a slight incline. Most of the time it hooks up and shoots me across the 4 lane.. in a wet pavement situation it throws itself around like on ice... this winter is going to be FUN!!!!

I've experienced that with my SRT car. It was no slouch when new (5/2007)and it was almost a year before I got serious about mods beyond an intake and exhaust. What I found is that as the miles began to build, and I ran it with just the intake and exhaust, it got stronger, more responsive, definitely some more power was coming in.

Then I went crazy with more mods...LOL

I was told at the dealer when I bought mine that they only run at 65 or 70% power until they hit 1500 miles, this is to help with the break in. How true this is I don't know, but the salesman said he went to the SRT school and that is what they told them.

I have about 2k on mine now and I have the Diablo Predator with the 91 tune installed. I stomped on it yesterday for the first time and it lit the tires right up.
