    i pushed the trip meter and then had a friend press play when i said go. i said "now" when the trip meter was at 2.5, and the time was 17.5-18. WTF?! i have a '96 dakota sport. 3.9L v6, flowmaster 40series, bosch plugs, but shouldnt even a fairly stock dak go faster? :sadwavey:

    Trying to get the 1/4 mile time? That way won't give you anything close to accurate results. I think that's how those civic kids get their supposed "10 second" times.

    My friend had a 96 3.9L Dakota, auto, single cab, long bed. It moved pretty well. If you're really interested in making the truck faster, I'd say go for a K&N cone next (if you don't already have one), a decent set of headers, then maybe an aftermarket cam of some sort, along with a power programmer.
