    Im not much of a street racer (especially in my truck) but I can understand why you would be frustrated. There is always that rare occassion where you end up side by side with some teenager in his 4 cyl civic who decides to egg you on... I guess it would be pretty embarassing if you lost.

    I know youve made several mods, but have you ever had it dynoed? Just curious.

    Try replacing your muffler bearings. That's good for another 37 HP.
