Very contraversial evidentially whether the G-Tech is accurate.Nobody's posted proof either way yet. We will see...m4ck said:Looks like pretty good times to me. I am not familiar with the device though. Is it pretty accurate if so you should be able to hang with or beat most of the stock v8 trucks I believe. Good job there and keep up the good work. If you get to run it at the track make sure you post your time slips also.
Really, this is VERY,VERY notible This is what this discussion needs is people that haVe done side by side comparisons. Your times are EXACTLY what I got before my exhaust mod! Good job and ThanKs for the post!NateL said:I ran my G-Tech the other day and was getting about 15.2 at about 91. Those are my averages with 15.4 at 89 being the high, and 15.1 at 93 being the low.
I used to run the G-tech everytime I'd take my old car out to the dragstrip and 99% of the time it less than 1/10th of a second off and it was never more than 1.5 mph off.
LOL, I was at an eight of a tank. I'm allways at an eight of a tank, this thing will fly though gas milage shows it. I was so stoked over the times I pulled off the first chance I had so I could film the results worrying the screen would go blank or something. Running 90 plus again isn't something I wanted to do w/ out being at a remote location...Caltitan said:So is the reason you pulled into a gas station after that timed run because you did it on a nearly empty fuel tank? Nice time. Maybe an email to the manufacturer of the device might get you some margin of error info.
Here's the margin of error from manufacturer which seems consistant w/ Natel results...Caltitan said:So is the reason you pulled into a gas station after that timed run because you did it on a nearly empty fuel tank?

Very interesting indeed. I've little doubt that our trucks are capable of running those kinds of numbers. High 14's are mighty impressive as is the mph number. I'd still like to see a timeslip from a sanctioned drag strip though. With that thought in mind I'll mention that it is very interesting that in the HP/Torque wars between manufacturers they often tout figures...except imperical data like 0-60 and 1/4 mile times. We know that our Titans are capable of running rings around most domestic trucks in those categories. And on a final note every year at the Mile High Nationals mopar brings out their "hemi" trucks and runs them down the track. Two years ago the actual times were up on the board. High 17's here at altitude...which isn't bad on 100 degree day at 5800' elevation. This year they didn't post times, not even for that silly V-10 powered truck. It has power from here to tomorrow and does nice smoky burnouts, but I want to know how fast it went? My guess is somewhere in the high 14's at around 100+ mph. Which is an excellent number for a stock street vehicle here in Denver. And I am interested to know what kind of HP number the G-tech is suggesting?
Ran the HP test on the G-Tech w/ 5300lbs. as the input weight and averaged a 270 HP reading at the rear wheels. I'll let you guys figure in what that equates to at the crank. Not sure of the formula off hand...Sr2 said:Gentleman,

I am eagerly awaiting your results. My guess would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 230-250 HP to the wheel. But we'll wait and see. My boss just got a brand new Dodge Ram 1500. It has the "hemi", and the bumble bee paint job. It is a pretty nice truck. I didn't have the heart to tell him that my Nissan is probably still quicker and perhaps faster than his. I guess a little race next spring is in order. Perhaps you know the answer to this question...do the 5.6 Nissan engines also have hemispherical combustion chambers? The reason I ask is that the spark plugs look like they run straight down into the top of the cylinder heads. As opposed to entering the heads "on the side" as one would expect on an engine that has a "traditional" in-line valve arrangement. Your guess on the weight of the truck is probably very close. In closing I am wondering what your launch technique is? Power brake up against the stall converter, or just go from idle. And were you manually shifting, or letting the tranny shift by itself? Talk to you soon.
am willing to bet that with a good exhaust, good intake, a chip, racing gasoline, and an experienced driver that a Titan is able to run into low 14's at around 100 MPH.
