i so understand what you mean, i came from a fast car too. used to have a CBR too. this truck feels really underpowered. i can't find anyone who makes a supercharger for it any more. nothing on the stillen site... do you know of a company?Not bad.
I'm really struggling with not hopping the motor up and going the forced induction route.
I had a very fast truck before this, so it has been quite an adjustment. I think I should stick to the adventure themed build, and then get a two seater sports car. . .and more motorcycles.
The answer is always more toys. . .right?

i'd love to test my 0-60 but i'm still in 1500 mi break in. i'm hauling a canopy that's probably 200 lbs so it'll probably take me 9 damn seconds and then i'll CRY. i kind of don't want to know how slow it is. lol
ha ha says the guy with the SRT8. if i still had a fast car too, i wouldn't care how dog slow a truck is either, but when it's your only ride and you are used to POWER, it takes getting used to!The flat out last thing that matters with my truck is time trials. My Titan had guts but it wasn’t a race vehicle either.
i hear you, but this is the only vehicle ive ever bought new, and i usually drive pretty hard anyway, so i'm trying hard to be kind to it.2017, 1200 miles, SV 4x4 with SV truck package.
lol break in? come on, the best way to break it in, "is" to put load on her. Let her rip a few times, truth be told there really is no break in period on modern cars anymore.
I think the truck is pretty powerful though. I also have a k6 gsxr 1000
You may not believe it but on the highway to Florida I looked down at the speedometer and the truck was showing about 92 so I took it up to 101 and let go. My Challenger has never been over 90 and the magazine claims from when I bought it almost six years ago were as high as 184 mph, I’ll take their word for it. My kids give me a hard time about not really putting my foot in it. Yes I’ve launched it but let off quickly, it still looks like the day I bought it and trying to keep it that way, almost six years old and just about 10,000 on it now. Car was washed when delivered by the dealer and only once by me, it gets dusted and detailed when taken out and then again when put away.ha ha says the guy with the SRT8. if i still had a fast car too, i wouldn't care how dog slow a truck is either, but when it's your only ride and you are used to POWER, it takes getting used to!
Nothing directly bolt on, but I figured I could junkyard one off of the gen 1, have it rebuilt and fabricate something. I have also perused the build section here and seen a few interesting things.i can't find anyone who makes a supercharger for it any more. nothing on the stillen site... do you know of a company?
Lol that's messed upI raced some punk over in Oakland the other day coming across the bridge from Alameda..... he had a Mitsubishi lancer, he didn't think I was racing him but I definitely caught him off guard.... funny part, as knowing the streets in Oakland, I slowed down right before the hill of the bridge..... while he was still accelerating over the bridge.... the OPD was sitting right there..... lights were turned on as I passed by laughing
