    Yes sir!....how are you liking your new setup? I saw you posted some numbers, 403 rwhp...not too shabby!

    Quick question, when you had it on the dyno did you have any problems with your stock driveshaft? Any plans on getting a custom driveshaft?

    Edit: Now I see you also posted some mid 13 second time slips, nice! :driver:

    403 dyno was sketchy af :lol: 4th gear pull. but i am also short wheel base
    truck has since been tuned on/off a different awd dyno (they used 3rd gear pulls)
    new rear suspension seems to be paying off, times keep dropping and i can dial it back during the week for cruising. last few times at track have been crowded so not many chances to try out new settings/launches.

    did you do the trunion upgrade yourself? i completely missed doing them while i was in there. I may grab another set of oems and get them set up just to sway

    The Trunion upgrade was a pain in the A$$, but its worth it for cheap insurance and piece of mind...its just time consuming and tedious mostly....I did it at my kitchen table using only a vice, snap ring pliers and the Summit Trunion Tool (SME-906011), some videos show using an arbor press as well but I was able to get away with just the vice....

    After a couple boring hours...

    Much better than the factory needle bearings...

    I miss the simplicity of my old Buick V6 rocker arms! That's a crazy idea to use needle bearings in an engine.
