    Im conflicted on the wheels I have seen some black ones that look good, and chrome looks good on about anything. The pulley swap will come the same time a few other power mods do so when I go to get dyno tuned it will all be KOed at one time.

    to be specfic, the C&L upper / TB combo.....Coldair......Catted mid pipe.....Catback exhaust......6lb lower.......heat exchanger.......and dyno tune :dancing6: :dancing6: Should be around 400-425rwhp

    sounds like a good time in a truck do you get a lot of wheel hop?

    do you put weight in the rear?

    no wheel hop is no prob right now, ( I do have a live rear not the IRS ) and no weight in the rear this bus has enough now.

    It will be a blast for a truck, should be in the mid to low 12's in the quarter :boink:

    guys run DR's and a few on slicks, go check out www.nloc.net there is TONS of time slips there and the part list for each truck. Its neat the way they have it set up you can see what parts will get you to a certain time zone in the 8th and quarter mile.

    Its a great site ( best for L's ) its really cool, you can see what parts really DO work and what they will get you both on the track and on the dyno for that matter. :)

    thats a really good idea then people dont go out and drop tons of money on mods that work well after you drop cash on other parts first ...like people buying tb's for our cars then being dissapointed they didn't see gains
