Default PASS TIME me! What will my truck run?

Not that my truck and I will be on the show, but let's see who can guess the closest!

I will be running at Mission Raceway B.C., about 32' above see level. Temp will be likely be in the 70 range.

My truck is a 2dr. AWD Jimmy automatic. 153,000 miles
3.73 gears
245/45/15 tires.
The only power mods are a 3" cat back exhaust with a Magnaflow.

The truck and transmission run with no issues.

I will be running this coming Friday May 3rd. I will likely get 3 runs and will post the quickest time slip.

Not my first time, I've run my '89 Jimmy and '95 Jimmy. I will not give you hints or clues as to how the other trucks ran.

Racing begins at 5PM Pacific time today, I will post my times as the evening goes.

So let's see your guesses. If you guess more than once your last guess will be the one used.

I might add that the truck still has the stock 4.3 engine, no V8 yet.

16.1 but make sure you put your tires at sidewall psi for that extra traction

AWD, I think I'm good at any pressure with a 4.3

16.5

Knowing a bit about the trucks, I feel that at stock they aren't geared all that great for the 1/4 mile.

0-60 can be shaved down easily though. There are tons of easy weight reduction mods to be done on S trucks.

Stock is roughly a 16.5 if I remember correctly so you should be able to break 16
