First pass in the truck, sorry I missed 3rd and 4th, I have been used to the CTSV shifter and the truck is different, any way I ran 12.358 @ 96.16 with a 1.684 60'.

After a cool down, launch at 4500, had some wheel hop, but a lousy 1.781 60', but made all my shifts to an 11.458 @ 126.32......both new bests for the truck
but on the return road after getting my time slip the top radiator hose blew off and all my coolant went all over the engine compartment....I thought I was done. Hose was fine, just the clamp came off. So we reattached the hose, filled with water and let it cool.

Third pass: an even worse 60' at 1.791. The rear shocks are 14 way adjustable, first 2 runs were at 7 clicks , last pass we turned them up to 10 for a little firmer, launched at 4250, no spin, no wheel hop, but very disappointing 60'. I had done a 1.56 with the stock suspension, so I have to relearn this new set up. Anyway, the truck pulled good, made my shifts and a new personal best again! 11.345 @ 127.11

60' 1.791
330' 4.885
1/8 7.684 @ 97.62 mph
1000' 9.562
1/4 11.345 @ 127.11

So the speed is there, once I get the 60' down in the mid 1.5's or better, I feel a 10....something is possible.
Getting there man! Seems you're having so many issues after this build compared to your stock run days. If you had to do it over would you rather $3000 and a 200 shot to get the same effect?
