Danny (imelmo) is well into the 13's on forged rods.
I would ditch the tires and lift if you are going to pursue speed. Otherwise you can just be happy that you can run over a cargo van if need be /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

No, not hopeless, but I'd say you'll need more than 500 horse, which is the rumored safe limit of forged rods.
Danny is around 650 though, with no issues as of yet.

How much boost are you gonna run? 35 and less stock studs will probably work, I'll let someone who's pushing bigger boost numbers than me confirm that.

Umm, maybe if you cut your lift in half say 6" or so it would be more than possible. Is 13" just so you have the biggest looking truck around? Just wondering.

Maybe because people like you, DOCKBOY, think they are too good to share information.

I didn't see you offering any advice to BigT, yet you sure as heck open your mouth when see opportunity to take a potshot.

Maybe you should practice what you preach, why don't YOU give advice about something YOU have actually done.

Oh, that's right, because it would threaten your ego, that's why. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Take your smart comments elsewhere and let's keep this thread on track.

What did I miss?

I've got Greg's (Dockboy) phone number and his rods for the pending rebuild. He is very willing to share any and all advice and I will be calling him (and everyone else for that matter) when the time comes.
