What needs to be done for 99 7.3L to beat a 2004 dodge ram hemi 1500

My buddy has a 2004 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.7L hemi. Wiki says it is 345hp and 375 lb of torque. I looked up some times, but I am not a racer so I really don't know much. They had some test where it ran 6.99 0-60 time and a 14.99 1/4 mile.

I was just curious to see what would need to be done for my 99 powerstroke to challenge him. Obviously the PSD is a much heavier truck, so I am just throwing this out there looking for some thoughts just for fun.

To tell if your truck is e99 or late check the intake manifolds. If it is 3" it is a late 99, smaller than that IIRC it's 2-1/2" it's an early.

More info would help a lot. A reg cab will be quicker due to weight than a CC. 4x4 will launch harder resulting in quicker E.T.

My truck ran mid-high 15's with stock turbo, intake, and exhaust with PHP tunes.

If his Hemi is a regular cab they are fast. My buddy has one and it rips. Buy a custom tuned chip and gauges, do the DIY intake, and do a straight pipe. And see what happens then.

That should be a Late 99. One thing to check is the inner cooler tubes, one should have foil on it.
