Powerstroke Victorious!

Well I finally raced my truck tonight for the first time against my buddies 2003 Cummins, and beat him pretty good. He has a Smarty S06 POD on the highest setting, straight pipe, and a bullydog air intake. First race was a boosted launch, he had a little bit more of bottom end and less wheel spin then I had, but he never got passed my grill. Then I passed by him completely I think at around 75mph. Second race was just going from a stop. I stil had a lot of wheel spin until around 3rd gear lol. But pulled away again with the speedo maxed out after about 2 truck lengths ahead of him and I think I might need a EGT gauge with more temps on it, cause I had it pegged at 1500 towards the end, and boost was around 25-30psi. I was a little optimistic about racing because I didnt want to blow a headgasket, but those arp's held up like a pro!

Nice!! My buddy has a '04 cummins, SRW CC with the same set-up, I embarrass him everytime (except when I had a y-pipe leak). I hope he don't run the high setting all the time. He needs to watch his rail psi, and if it's a auto trans, it's taking a beating with that setting.

What tune were you running? Next time do a 4X4 boosted launch, he won't touch you!! LOL!!

He says that his truck runs faster on stage 7 than 9, so he had it on 7. He has also had the tranny worked on once when he was running an Edge. I was runnin the extreme race tune from Innovative, and Im curious to see how the 4x4 launch will go lol!
