1st pull of the year

Postby redneckroot » Mon May 31, 2010 7:11 pm

Here is the 1st pull with the truck, 1st pull of the year. Have another one coming up this weekend looking for tips. I think I should have started in 2nd instead of starting in 1st and shifting.

That thing could really use a 5spd, other than that the hook looked good, nice ad smooth

I though it was good for the first pull. However everyone put 20+ feet on me. I'm looking at some more ideas before the pull this coming weekend. I still am only getting 30lbs of boost can't get anymore out of it.

Found out the line pressure on the tranny was low. Also just found that the plastic throttle rod end had pulled threads, meaning it was only getting maybe 3/4 throttle. Learning curve......

Anyone running a roll pan on a 1st gen? I'm thinking about it but want to see how one looks on these trucks.
