OBS v.s duramax

Alrighty i know dodges and i know fords but i've never touched or driven a duramax! A buddy of mine claims these huge numbers with his and all it has is an intake (****ty one) and a superchips programmer...

Now i know that would be a ****ty setup on a ford but whats it like on a duramax? I believe its like an 02 or 03.

Is my truck set up like it is in my sig going to ever even touch that truck power and speed wise?

I mean he was claiming like 500hp because he added the stock power to what the programmer claims but obviously i know that number is INSANE!!

School me guys

I wouldn't want to go up against a stock dmax. Let alone one that is tuned even if it is just a superchips. They are stupid fast as long as they can keep the front tires pointed in the same direction.

i dont know about 500 hp but you could say it defantly say it has above 375 hp. with stage 1's and good tuning our trucks are around 300 to 330hp. You will just have to see how good that tunner is. Some of those d-max with just tunners are pretty sick.
