i couldn't even smoke 33s :( i was still on 4.10s though

but then again, having 4.88s in laramie was the same as my 3.55s now.. my poor engine couldn't breath that high up. maybe with 5.13s, and brakes that wont let the tires just push the truck i'll be able to.

I beat my friend's 2001 Acura Integra LS when I had 31s and a clogged Intake.

I can smoke my 31s with 4.10s no problem. Rincon trail shortcut anyone?

That was it. My L/S is so weak now that I would just one tire fire if I tried that again.

I ran 15.8's stock with just a k&N drop in with my 4.0 SOHC and 5 speed. This was on my stock goodyear wranglers.

Yes its quick, i smoked my friends mint 91 cobra all the way to 60mph... then he pulls past me

There are a few members on here in the 14's with the SOHC and the 5speed... with just a few bolt ons

the OVH's have more low end torque and from what i've heard, and put mine through they are a pretty reliable enigine.

It's peppy and plenty for a truck for it's size IMO. It's a complete dog compared to my Mach 1 though
