Cant figure this out at all...

I heart Boost and DRs...
Ok now I cant figure this out here.

I have a 2,400 stall convertor and 3 inch downpipe and exhaust in the truck. That is all! Unless this thing had motor work internally done before I got it.

Well according to research the GN only weighs 3,472 and the S10 is 4,100.

The motor stock makes 276 hp / 360 tq and estimated my truck with motor in it will only run a 14.32.

If this is the case how in the heck did it lay down a 12.5 at the drag strip? It did have drag radials on it. I was racing against noone just me on a pass.

Now Im on a goal of low 11s high 10s.
 
No, that is off the tag in the door. Its kinda making me mad cause I cannot figure it out.
 
My uncle's S10 with a 383 in it weighs 2800 #'s. That with a roll bar in it . Are you running stock boost levels? And a stock chip. You probably don't have a cat. convertor on it either or a stock air box.
 
Stock everything in the car with just a set of magnaflow mufflers after I was told they flow better then my old exhaust setup just added those today.

His truck with a stroker in it weighs 2,800 lbs? What year is it and how much is it stripped?


Cause according to the stealership my truck weighs 4,100 lbs. I see where it says some of these trucks from 82-91 are 2,600-3000.
 
Put a load of trash in the bed and go to the city dump. They will weigh the truck loaded and unloaded. You pay a few bucks and get a real weight for your vehicle.
 
I believe the truck is closer to 3k based on reading on some other things online. That is a dealer weight.
 
the door sticker is the GVW , which isnt the curb weight , its the total road weight of the vehicle carrying its rated load of passengers and cargo


my 4wd 4.3 s10 blazer 4 door with gy wrangler235/75 tires is only 3800 with me in it
 
get it weighed

$9 os $10 at the nearest truck stop and you know how much it weighs.
you can get a front and back weight seperately and the total.

Unless you have a load in the bed there's no way an S-10 weighs 4100 lbs. They weight 2500 lbs on up to about maybe 3300 lbs depending on the year and what options it has.

I had a 1984 S-10 once with an iron headed aluminum intake 350 sbc in it, it was a short bed reg cab that was a base model truck...meaning ZERO options...but was all steel (no fiberglass or lexan) and it still had the stock heater and inner fenders....it weighted 2690 w/o me in it and 7 gallons of fuel. Found out later it weighted in 2500 lbs curb when it was new with the 1.9 liter Isuzu 4 cyl.
 
You're beginning to use your head Billy.:biggrin: The S-10 pickup chasis is lighter than you think, especailly in the back. I know you have a few dirt track shops near you so get the front to back weights as well as the side to side. This will give a better idea on how to set the truck up.:cool:
 
Yes sir, Mr Charlie. It is becoming more and more of a problem to keep the motor stock instead of just tearing into it cause Im kinda wanting to.
