test drove an 03 7.3 yesterday, was impressed
so me and a few buddies were on our way to the branson cruise nights, yesteday, in my obs. and a buddy was way behind so we had plenty of time to stop at a dealer. i got out and was lookin at a 4 door short bed 4x4 03 7.3. had the keys in it revved it up some, popped the hood checked it out, looked at the pcm sure enough theres a chip in there found, the switch.
here comes the dealer, he talks to me, i ask for a test drive he said hop in.
(i already flipped through the 4 positions to figure out power settings by the smoke amount 4th was the hottest.)
we take off i leave it in the low setting, laid it to the ground, put out quite a bit of smoke, said alright now lets see what its got, made a right to a straight stretch, flipped the chip to the 4th setting. laid it to the ground. it set everyone into their seat, blacked out the road, when it shifted into second it barked the tires, not just a scratch i mean it barked them good. thats when the dealer asked me to turn the chip back down. play time over.
anyways how did that truck bark second so easily? ive driven and rode in all diesel trucks, stock, chipped etc, my buddies 4 door short bed 4x4 common rail with an edge with attitude on the highest setting wont bark second, these werent stock wheels and tires either, it had a set of chrome rims and some wide tires on it.
