    i was muddin the other day and didnt notice anything until the next day when my rpms were jumping around. there was just a bit of dirt in my k&n intake pipe and none in the throttle body. but i cleaned both anyways. truck is still running fine. should i worry about anything or anything else i could do to make sure everything is fine? also should i take it a little more easy on my truck on the highway. im in highschool and have an extreme lead foot and let the throttle wide open a lot. im just wondering if it could hurt anything...

    i just reccomend you change your oil and monitor your trucks behaviour

    opening up the throttle like you are is never good for any truck, but youre young, you only live once so go for it!

    use the search button homey, thats a good oil...i run royal purple full synthetic with a K&N oil filter but id invest in a good filter and oil, usually its just personal preferance

    Street racing is immature and more often than not very costly. I have never seen or heard of anyone being very sorry or remorseful for racing at a track, on the street is another story and judges are sick and tired of hearing the stories from street racers in their court rooms.

    Friday night at the track is usually inexpensive. Plus you will receive a timing slip that can be posted to back up any speed claims.

    You do not need a big Hemi or a rat motor to have fun at the drag strip.
